What's in Bernanke's Portfolio?

What is the other "Big Ben" holding in his account? According to disclosure reports, new Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is weighted 50% stocks and 50% fixed income. That is a rather conservative approach. I am 88% stocks and 12% (money market/savings) but I am 33 years younger than Mr. Bernanke.

You know, Berneke doesn't have a fabulous portfolio, I like his Altria though. But go WFMI!
