Hi everyone,
This is my first post and I am looking for some guidance on the diversity of my portfolio. I recently decided to cash in some stock options I received from a previous employer as I felt I might be able to invest my money in companies that could provide better returns.

I have subscribed to a couple of TMF newsletters and have subsequently invested my money in 10 companies that I felt offered potential for good returns.

So far I have been very happy with the results and although I have only been investing with TMF for a couple of months I am seeing encouraging returns. Having said that, my goal is longer term gains, and so my questions is;

How diverse should I make my portfolio?

I have read summaries and picked some core stocks and others I thought I could see promise in but I am concerned that I should spread my risk further by having a more diverse portfolio.

I am interested to hear other Fools opinions on this.

Thanks in advance
Iamacly
