How Should Investors Avoid Spreading Their Portfolios Too Thin?

In the stock market, it’s tough to find consistency. Great companies may profit investors over the long term, but even the best of them will have months when they miss the mark and lose ground. But if you need a bit of consistency, look no further than the Rule Breaker Investing podcast, which always ends the month with a win for its listeners: a mailbag episode. In this segment from the podcast, a listener who has used both the Stock Advisor and Rule Breakers services to build a diversified portfolio asks host and Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner for help with a problem that he is in part responsible for causing. Billy keeps seeing fresh new stock recommendations that he’d like to invest in, but he doesn’t want to wind up owning too many companies. How should he pick which ones to sell, and how many different stocks should he hold? These are good problems to have, and Gardner is happy to offer some advice. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: Join our Facebook community: Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter:
