The Purple shall rule! "There is one thing that still unsettles me a bit when I travel and that is the moment when we approach a country and the airline crew starts handing out disembarkation cards...or landing cards as it is more commonly known as. For me a landing card is just an association with arriving at a developing country." Surfer Dude, Cape Town

The Bottom Line: " The degree of concentration of one's bets should reflect the degree of certainty one has in their outcome relative to one's investment objectives, compared to the expected outcome of other bets. For example, if there is 100% certainty (which we know there never is) that a certain investment will outperform everything else, then everything should be invested in that investment. If you have no idea which investment will outperform, then it makes sense to spread one's bets. As Warren Buffett said, "Diversification is protection against ignorance".
