In just about every executive meeting of any business-to-business-focused organization, nothing raises tension more consistently than the question: Where are the sales?  CEOs pound tables demanding answers. Sales vice presidents squirm, then point to Marketing VPs, saying that Sales needs more and better leads.  Marketing VPs become defensive and point at Sales VPs, arguing that the pipeline is always full, but Sales can't seem to close a deal.  Everyone reaches for the aspirin.

The hidden asset class
Cash is an important part of a portfolio. If you have a long-term horizon, you might want 0-5 percent of your investments in cash. Ideally, you have high-income investments that are providing a steady flow of cash, acting as ballast for your portfolio. Depending on the economy, the markets and your level of active investing, at times you may have up to 100 percent cash. I’ll sometimes recommend this to my clients in extreme conditions. But too much cash can make you miss rising markets and other opportunities. It’s a delicate balancing act. By Ron Phillips
