It’s always good to go back to the basics sometimes. I like that magic number. I have around a dozen or so. I don’t believe in holding like 50. This is a great concept to understand

Steven Upton says:

i have 9, i watch a guy who has 38 , i don t believe he even knows if they are diluting equity as he reccomended IBM who definately dilute equity

Ina Fatoumata Kébé says:

So do you recommend maximum 10 to 16 stocks and minimum 4 stocks to someone who has less than 100k to manage?

BR Investing says:

I understand this but, on the other hand there are stocks you basically don't have to manage. If we are talking growth stocks then I fully agree. But large cap dividend plays are "safe" and don't need management that much.

Warren Buffett is also a master of lies. Berkshire holds 46 stocks, he also holds companies with questionable leadership, while he tells others not to invest in those.

He can basically buy a company and people will chant look at that stockprice go that Warren bought. If I buy 240 million shares of a single company, that will go up as well. If your fans then buy in that same company 3 months later, of goes up even more.

I think I heard someone literally say but what Warren buys and you'll do great.

Myself, I will not limit to a number of stocks. Some I will keep an eye on, others I don't have to look at. I still diversify by currencies, markets and industries.
