Hey everyone,I just had a few questions about possibly adding some diversification to my portfolio. I am currently a 22 year old college senior studying finance. I started investing in January '11 in a Roth IRA account and have had help from my father with investing the yearly 5k in the account. It is about time I add more cash to the portfolio and was wondering what recommended strategies were to allocate the money.Currently I have a portfolio with 18 stocks in it. Over the past two years I have currently made a 29% return. Being that I am so young my strategy has been to invest in small cap companies and other high growth companies with the idea that I can recover much easier considering I started to invest at a young age. I have a few stocks that pay dividends and also have a few larger companies and more stable businesses in their so the portfolio is a bit less volatile.My question is this, I need suggestions on whether I should either a) put more cash into stocks I already own, b) invest in corporate bonds and place some of the money in a bit more of a stable area or c) buy a couple more companies and add a larger range of companies to the portfolio. Any investing advice is greatly appreciated and I need all the help I can get. Thanks!
