Investors often dream of hitting it big.
Of finding the one company that will skyrocket to success… or the one stock that will make them millions.
But investing isn’t like buying a lottery ticket. It takes discipline and follow-through.
And to achieve anything close to the million-dollar gains you might be dreaming of, you can’t rely on one company. You need to build a strong and diversified portfolio.
As Alexander Green wrote, “More than 200 years of financial history show that owning a diversified portfolio of stocks gives you the highest probability of reaching your long-term financial goals.”
But that’s easier said than done. So in this week’s poll, we decided to ask: Do you feel your portfolio is properly diversified?
Responses were split down the middle, with slightly more than half saying they don’t have a well-diversified portfolio.
