Allocation would depend on a person's motivation. Since I am more interested in income, I allocate more resources towards investing for income, for example.
When investing for income, a higher yield is always attractive but we have to bear in mind that other factors must be considered too. Always ask how is that income generated and also if it is sustainable (for how long)? We might not always get it right but if we ask these two questions, we should get it right most of the time.
One objective of investing for income is to beat inflation. If a stock is able to generate a yield that beats inflation rate or at least equals it, I might consider.
I never tell people what is my portfolio's average yield since I have revealed my annual passive income in absolute dollar value. However, this does not stop some readers from doing some CSI in my blog to get an estimate. ;p
