Really depends on your own personal risk tolerance.I have about 15 individual stocks, but the dollar amounts vary radically. Smallest, percentage wise, is about 0.5% and the largest (BRK.B) is about 25%. Is a stock in a very narrow sector? Perhaps it should have a smaller allocation. A big, diverse company like BRK, oft compared to a mutual fund? Perhaps it can be a larger percent of your total assets. Other than cash, 14 of my non-BRK holdings make up 50% of my portfolio, and the remaining 25% is an S&P 500 index fund, the best available choice for me in my government 401(k) equivalent.
