When people rail against holding too many stocks, I think they're most often talking about the former, but the latter is a legit way to manage a concentrated portfolio while still allowing yourself to explore smaller positions in other companies.

That's pretty much what Peter Lynch did at Magellan but he has a staff of analysts to keep track of all those stocks. He was of the opinion that if one of those small positions were a ten bagger it would really juice the portfolio.
