Select Your Investments. DEVELOP YOUR FINANCIAL PLAN
After you formulate your objectives, asset allocation plan, and
investment strategy, it is time to select your investments. Your
decision as to which stocks to buy is guided by your investment
strategy. Investors following a passive investment strategy choose
diversified investments in each investment asset class. A diversified
stock portfolio includes stocks from different sectors of the economy
(technology, energy, health care, consumer, industrial, financial,
auto, basic materials, manufacturing, and utilities) whose returns
are not directly related.
An investor following an active strategy uses fundamental and
technical analysis to assemble stocks to buy that are undervalued
and then sells them when they become overvalued and replaces
them with new undervalued stocks.
Irrespective of whether you are an active or passive investor,
you need to even out the risk of loss by having a diversified portfolio.
In other words, you should not have all your eggs in one basket.
