SIF Portfolio: A new twist on diversification

Ed Croft’s 2017 NAPS feature reminded me of the adage that diversification is the only free lunch in investing.

The NAPS portfolio is made up of 20 stocks, with two taken from each of the ten top level economic sectors. With a few exceptions, the stocks selected are simply the stocks with the highest StockRanks in each sector.

The NAPS portfolio is more strictly rules-based than my SIF Portfolio, but there are some similarities. One of the biggest lessons I’ve taken away from the NAPS portfolio’s outstanding progress is the benefit of diversification.
