That's a personal preference regarding allocation and risk we all must decide for ourselves. Many would say you are too concentrated in a narrow segment of the economy. Yet all that really matters is if you are comfortable with your stock selections, believe in their long-term prospects, and are not in need of the principal invested in those shares in the next five years or so. If you can answer those kinds of questions for yourself and determine that your holdings are fine for you, then stay with them. If not, then change. The bottom line is it's your choice and your choice alone.
