Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

Mistakes that target- date fund managers make..
One particular feature of target- date funds such as retirement funds is that the older you get, the less exposure you should have to stocks because equities tend to have bigger price swings than bonds. After all, calendar matters more than the market fundamentals in case of such funds. As per this article, target-date funds and pension plan sponsors are not serving the investors well as they are not assessing risk properly and are not looking at relative valuations of stocks and bonds. There are other approaches for creating wealth for retirees as per this article. Read on to know more: (Marketwatch)
