As a new investor i'm looking through my portfolio and analyzing the weightings of my stocks.
How do i determine what percentage my stocks should carry?
I am looking for a diversified portfolio, but am unsure which stocks should have a larger place in my portfolio. Should growth stocks have more, or dividend stocks a larger percentage?
In the current market, what would be good percentage weightings from certain sectors?

Much appreciated
Kiwisteve.
