You also want to think about diversification. Take a hypothetical portfolio of 10 individual stocks; each in a different industry, so if any one industry gets hit hard, you're only exposed 10%. But if you have 10 stocks, and two are in the same industry, you now have 20% exposure to that industry.This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but something to be aware of when making allocation decisions.
