Instead of taking a negative view with your parents, I would tell them how wonderful this company is but all good investors do not put their eggs in one basket. Even if this company is doing great now, there are so many things out of their control that could go wrong that a sensible thing would be to diversify. I would try to get them to sell at least half and then I would take the money and invest in companies like the Motley 4.
