Hi! I am new to self investing. Prior to this it has all been 401k let the advisor guide me. I have about 70,000 to invest. I am thinking of doing the ultimate portfolio, plus a few others. How many stocks too many? I know I need to diversify, but is 30 roughly the right number? It seems like while too little diversification is highly risky, to much leads you almost match the market. I want this portfolio to be on the high risk, high reward side. Thanks for the info.
