That is the maximum percentage of your portfolio you want to invest in one company? Mine is 4% as I want a minimum diversification if 25 names in my portfolio.
Will you follow a strict stop loss system? For example sell at a 16% to 20% loss irrespective of what has happened. I have developed a semi-rigid system that works for me based on valuation and portfolio weighting. Its a bit too complicated to explain here but it will be part of a future newsletter.
What percentage of your portfolio will you invest in one industry? I have a rule of about 20% but its not something I apply rigorously.
If you use multiple investment strategies do you have a limit as to that percentage of your portfolio should be invested in each. For example if you follow a low price earnings strategy what is the maximum percentage you will allow to have room for other strategies such as low price to book companies? I do not have any limit with regards to any strategy.
