I am still a newb here, starting in 2016 with Stock Advisor, and while I agree with the following statement it always worried me that many were FAAANG stocks.

"You should feel comfortable holding these stocks for the long haul; not only do they have the strength to ride out downturns, but they're also built for powerful growth."

Now that the market is undergoing a correction largely on FAANG I am not sure I agree with the thesis that these have the strength to ride the downturn.

Perhaps it is my own error in that I have typically weighted my portfolios with 3-7% starter stocks and the bulk of the rest of your recommendations around 1-3%. Maybe that was not intended and therefore my error.

Does anyone else use a different strategy or feel differently about its intentions?

Looking forward,
