The question is this: how many individual positions should one take within a small cap allocation? HG holds a whole ton of tiny positions and many on the boards seem to lean toward "big" numbers (say 20-30 positions) as well. I think the risk can be managed with 10 or fewer within that asset class.

Thoughts? Trey

I think it depends on total amount of your portfolio, your time and inclination to manage it as well.

I have a lot of stocks and I have complained off and on over the yrs about it
