I agree with Fuskie. It can be difficult to know whether to buy more of a stock you own or something else.

If you include all the stocks you own in your watch list, you can then judge them all equally. The current price target can be a guide, but services like Value Line also rate their timeliness.

With growth stocks you always want to know if a stock is fully valued or even over valued. Price target gives you an indication. Of course price targets get revised from time to time usually based on stock potential and recent developments.

As to how many to own, much depends on how much time you have. 8 to 10 lets you keep up with the news, earnings reports, conference calls etc. That makes it easier to know when its time to sell.
