I think a better diversification is 50% Saul Index and 50% stable/bonds.

So the first one goes up 40% a year, that means overall your egg goes up 20% (plus the smidgen that stable goes up). That’s pretty good profit and risk management.

Why diversification in lesser performing stocks isn’t much diversification?

During a recession all the stocks will drop, hence freezing that paper until the recession ends. But splitting between Saul Index and stable/bonds allows you plenty of available cash for daily or . . . for buying more stock as the market starts recovering.

I am at 75/25 split which gives me 5 years of safety cash should I need it and also allows me to pounce when a recession ends.

Now, if that Citroën guy can just badmouth Zoom . . . .
