How To Diversify Your Portfolio Like A Pro

diversified portfolio

I think most people would agree that being diversified is a good thing.

Maybe it was a grandparent that told us not to put all our eggs in one basket. Diversification does not necessarily mean having a lot of mutual funds or ETF’s.

Portfolio A could be a single stock (not diversified) or it could be a Total Stock Market Index fund that owns 1000s of underlying companies (diversified).

Portfolio B could be 8 individual tech stocks (not diversified) or it could be Index Funds of 8 different asset classes (diversified).

The real goal of diversification is to own stuff that zigs when others zag. Not all U.S. stocks react the same. A high growth tech stock is going to react quite differently than a slow dividend growth stock that is a consumer staple.

Stay diversified. Stay invested.

There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.
