Adding energy stocks to your retirement fund may be a smart move Although gas prices are on a decline, retirement investors are advised to rebalance their portfolio and consider adding energy and foreign stocks to their holdings, according to Anthony D. Criscuolo, a certified financial planner with Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based  Palisades Hudson Financial Group. This move will enable clients to protect their retirement portfolio, Criscuolo says. "If you allow your portfolio to simply 'follow the market' and then never or infrequently rebalance, you will end up with high allocations to assets that have done well recently and low allocations to investments that have performed poorly recently," a decision that could boost risk exposure over time, he explains. --CBS Moneywatch
