Hi Everyone ,

I need some help and advice from more experienced investors .

My dilemma is I do not know how many stocks to hold (I currently have 30 ) I personally feel this is too much as very difficult to keep track off and to know each company inside out .

I have a feeling I should have no more than 15-20 good companies and only sell a holding to buy something better and thus this discipline will force me to be careful in my selected holdings , well at least that's the theory !! .

I understand the more concentrated the more risk and I am willing to accept this .

I know of some people who have 70 or 80 holdings (so they can sleep at night ) but surely you would be better putting this in a tracker fund ?

At the end of the day its what works for you in the end and I am in no position to judge but would welcome thoughts from fellow investors .
