I am awash in information. As soon as I think I have made the right investment choices (from all the possible "right" ones, I mean), I read something else that brings me up short.

My savings are all in IRAs and I have been retired for awhile. I am making my first Foolish investment in the Foolish Four and am including bond funds, "Percentages" is my problem, and I know there are no hard and fast rules or we'd all be millionaires.

My concern is, how many stocks per size of investment? I understand that as income invested increases, more diversity must be added to the portfolio. Are there some specific rules of thumb as to number of stocks per amount of income invested? Especially for retirement investing? Especially for people well into retirement? Thanks for your help.
