There’s a very big problem with diversification. If you have your money spread over several stocks across several sectors, you don’t have enough time to really get to know any single investment!
If you don’t have the time to properly analyze market conditions and the company that you’re investing in, you’re pretty much playing darts. You may hit a bullseye once in a while. Sometimes, the dart is going to miss the board entirely!
