Currently, I only hold two stocks in my portfolio. Though I want to run a relatively concentrated fund, this is not the amount of companies that I am looking to hold. I only own two stocks because of the lack of undervalued companies that I have been able to find in past months. Ideally, I would like to hold between 8 and 15 companies in my stock portfolio. This ideal number would be lower if I was holding a large amount of cash at a given time. Holding too few positions places too much risk for events outside of anyone's control. Holding too many positions will ensure a portfolio that performs worse than market averages. This is why I plan on holding this many positions for my partnership in the future.
