how much would you own?

I've got 4% in FB and 5.2% in GOOG. 2% in AAPL. 0% in MSFT but I want some. 0% in AMZN but I think it, like FB, GOOG, APPL, holds the keys to a lot of information and has a long healthy life ahead of it.

I own SPY too so have a little of each there. I'm surprised how much owning a chunk of SPY puts my mind at ease. When I hear happy news on most companies (like AMZN, MSFT) I can usually say -- I own some of that. Dumb mindset but it keeps me from having 200 stocks in my portfolio and gives me a little emotional hedge! The bad news on companies never bothers me -- funny that.

I'd go to 5% on FB too at the moment but am not sure what I'd sell. BRK or WFC probably.

I'm guessing everyone here thinks FB is the better buy at the moment, yes?
