They are 2 different asset classes. You can't compare the 2. You can't compare Fixed Deposit to Property, same here, you can't compare stocks to bonds.
However, a balanced portfolio will need both stocks and bonds.
The rule of thumb is to have your age as the % of your portfolio in bonds, the rest in stocks.
So if you're 25 years old. A 75% Equity and 25% Bond portfolio would be ideal if you're planning for retirement.
And for your equities, I'd diversify globally and wouldn't personally touch the Singapore stock market.
