Diversification – that is, spreading – is essential. It’s not uncommon for someone who has worked at the same company for many years to have a large chunk of that company’s stock in their portfolio. Some people feel they can’t diversify because they “know their business best,” and others just don’t think about it. From a risk management perspective, a retiree’s investment portfolio should contain no more than about 5-10% of any given stock to cushion the potential failure of a single investment […]
