Hi Everyone,
I have a stock portfolio consisting of 30+ stocks and plan to increase. I will consistently contribute to this portfolio. HOWEVER, my allocation percentages vary from 1 to 17%. Is there such a strategy to have a "balanced allocation" or that depends on one's preferences. My long term goal is to spread my risk where if one loses value than the others will absorb the loss. It becomes even more challenging when you have multiple stocks that are doing well but have to decide where to allocate your funds.
