What is considered enough diversification?
100% of people found this answer helpful

I try to encourage young investors to use ETFs. There are many types of ETFs ranging from broad index to sector specific to alternatives. I prefer to own a basket of stocks in a sector I fundamentally believe in. Diversification can take many forms. You can diversify within a sector or a market. Many studies have been done over the years and they all point to the same conclusions. Asset allocation is by far the bigger contributor to your returns rather than stock picking. Spend more of your time on the asset allocation and you should be in better shape later on.
