Thanks for you email.

I usually initiate a position in a stock with a holding amounting to about 2 to 5% of my portfolio, usually closer to the 2% mark.

Though my goal is to grow my portfolio at an annualized growth rate of 35%, I have been incredibly lucky during this bull market and have managed to grow my portfolio at a growth rate of over 50% over the past five years.

Hope that's helpful.
