Sunny, you have enough stocks to run your stock market...have you thought of cutting back and going with the big ones, do 4 small ones and buy CNR or Enbridge, or BCE..or some other ones that are strong. i think a lot of the mining ones must be risky,,,have you made much on them.

Sunny, how much do you spend on fees and commissions per year, total, in order to "maintain" this portfolio?

I used to have a portfolio like yours, but I reduced it to just 5-6 stocks last year, and it is incredible how much easier it is to maintain and to make long-term decisions. For example, why to have 4 or 5 "financial stocks", when you can just choose the best and wait until it is sold cheaper than the others? This will give you more time to decide which one is the best in each category...

Sell all the mutual funds and use the proceeds toward your debt.Mutual funds are for suckers. Buy the company that sell the products not the funds.

Investing in only 4-12 or 16 stocks only is the worst of the worst advice that someone can give to someone, especially when that someone has a 160 000$ portfolio value.

If you have just a 5k to invest, you can go with only 4 stocks, I won't have any problem with that but I will even there suggest 6 stocks.

It's all depend of what the investor is about. Is the investor is very aware of the market condition and on how it's difficult to generate cash from it, well, that type of investor will go with what I have name an X-LARGE portfolio, meaning owning many companies in different sectors.

And X-LARGE portfolio won't protect you from the market extreme volatility, BUT it will play in you favor. And X-LARGE portfolio give you peace of mine. Holding too much cash on the same company, even if it's a blue chips one is really not a good idea.

That's why I always try to get something new in my portfolio when I invest.

Different companies, different sectors.

BCE is not a good company to invest in by the way.

9.99$ per trans action buy-sell that's what I pay.

Too bad for TIM, I always hope for a recovery...

I hold mutual funds in my RRSP only.

David, what are those 5 or 6 stocks you hold if you don't mind me asking

Theres no diversification in 5-6 stocks.You safer to buy a ETF. I like to buy basket of stocks.For example I buy all 6 canadian banks,5 telcos, 3 insurance,6 pipelines, 10 real estates, etc. You can never pick the single best performer.Also buy stocks with dividends. May as well get paid to wait. I hold my stocks forever cuz it is so hard to pick a exit.I just buy more when it goes down.

BCE is not a good stock to invest in? BS. All stocks are good depending on your entry point.
