Thoughts on individual stock trading
Posted July 23, 2019 by John Posey
The article below is from Josh Brown as he goes on a rant about individual stock trading. He makes some valid points in his amusingly blunt delivery. In short, it’s a good reminder that hot stock tips and investment news you stumble upon may not be that special. Those that work with me know I generally discourage owning more than 5% in any one stock in your portfolio to limit risk. It’s wise to enjoy individual stocks like your favorite cocktail, responsibly in moderation. It may not be as fun, but it will probably be better for your financial health. In my experience, the higher the concentration to individual stocks, the more likely feast and famine investment performance becomes. Investing done right is about exciting as watching grass grow…they’re equally boring!
