Most sensible World investment portfolios will aim to have their largest allocation in US equities. At Money Unshackled we aim to have somewhere around 25-40% of our portfolios in US shares and there are very good reasons for this.
Having a position in US stocks is essential but far too often we come across UK investors who foolishly, in our opinion, snub the largest investment market in the World. These UK investors have an irrational bias towards UK stocks.
Much of the reporting from the UK media is only ever about the FTSE 100, and historically, accessing international markets like the US was more difficult and expensive.
But with American companies dominating our lives and technological advances bringing down the cost of trading US shares, this has all changed!
In this video we are going to tell you why you should be investing in the US stock market. Let’s check it out…

Nike stock analysis – Let’s analyze the NKE stock. Nike is a sports apparel company primarily focused on selling footwear, sports equipment and apparel. Even though they are one of the biggest companies in their industry, they still have a ton of competition from companies, such as Under Armour, Adidas, Puma, and more.
Cool thing about Nike is that they are also a dividend paying company.

Today we’re getting back to investing basics. Investing 101. How many stocks should you own? Whether you like dividend investing, or you focus on growth stocks, if you own too many stocks then a good performing stock will have very little affect on growing your money because you’ve spread your money way too thin. But if you own just a few stocks, you are taking on a huge risk where you could either make a lot of money, or lose all your money. When it comes to the finance community, this is a fiercely debated question, and no one seems to know the answer.
The most important variable to answer this question is a word you may have heard before – it’s called – DIVERSIFICATION. It means you take your money, and instead of putting it in one place, you spread it out, across multiple different stocks from different TYPES of sectors, and different types of industries. Doing this means you protect your money from going up and down all at once. It’s important because what it does, is it reduces your risk to the volatility of the stock market.
The best amount of stocks to own is whatever it takes, to achieve “diversification”. The problem is, no one can agree as to what that means. Diversification is a sliding scale. In the world of money investing nerds, if you ask them “what do you consider diversified”, you’ll very quickly find that there’s many different opinions but the most popular amongst them, is that you should own between 20 to 30 stocks. But is that really fact?
In 1970, the Journal Of Business published what would become that popular opinion when they discovered that you could essentially recreate the benefits of diversification that you’d get with owning the entire New York Stock Exchange by owning only 32 stocks. That study showed the risk of owning around 30 stocks was low enough to compare to owning the entire New York Stock Exchange. But, that was an old model. Using modern calculations, what they found was that risk reduction, is not necessarily the same as diversification, even though that’s one of the investing benefits.
In an updated study done by Sur & Price, they used the R Squared formula. “R-squared will give you an estimate of the relationship between movements of a dependent variable based on an independent variable’s movements.” Put simply, If a stock has a LOW R squared result, it means that specific stock, does not generally follow the stock market’s price performance. A high r squared result, means the stock price generally copies what the overall stock market is doing.
When analyzing the stock market, 39% of stocks were unprofitable, 18.5% of stocks lost 75% or MORE, 64% of stocks performed worse than the Russell 3000 index (which is something that tracks the entire US stock market), and 25% of stocks were responsible for all of the stock market’s price increases. Think about that for a second, 1/4 of stocks were responsible for all the price increases.
The general rule of thumb is that as a beginner, it’s better to own more stocks. In fact, it’s better to buy into an exchange traded fund that tracks the overall market like VOO or VTI. With just that one stock, you will own thousands of stocks, in just one piece of stock. As you become better and you can devote more time to this, if that’s something that you’re interested in, then you should own FEWER stocks.
If you own an ETF that tracks the broad S&P500 stock market, you will outperform the majority of professional stock pickers. For my portfolio, I’ve essentially recreated my own index fund that I have more control over, and it’s a little cheaper, but the downside is that I’m basically doing as good as the stock market, so I might as well own an index at this point if I want a similar result – which is also what I’m focusing more on with stocks like SPHD that are monthly dividend payers.
Maybe you want to take more risk, in which case, you might do better sticking to a stock portfolio of only 10 stocks that are heavily weighted in the tech sector.

CNBC’s „Power Lunch“ team discusses how cannabis stocks fared in 2019 and what investors should watch for in 2020 with Matt Hawkins of Entourage Effect Capital.
Marijuana, gold, oil, emerging markets and micro caps are just some of the investing themes industry pros expect to work in the year ahead.
“I think this is going to be a big year for cannabis ETFs,” said Dave Nadig, managing director of ETF.com. “It’s been a rough year for most of the cannabis investments, and I think that in 2020, we’re going to see a continued push towards legalization around the world.”
The ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF (MJ), the market’s largest cannabis ETF in terms of assets under management, has shed nearly 31% in value year to date as many of its underlying securities went through an industrywide reckoning related to longer-than-anticipated product rollouts and overly enthusiastic forward estimates. Rival marijuana ETFs launched earlier this year have shared in the pain.
“The companies that are in these funds right now, I think, are going to get overpriced very quickly and we’re going to see a lot more companies come to play,” Nadig said.
Tim Seymour, who is founder and chief investment officer of Seymour Asset Management and runs the Amplify Seymour Cannabis ETF (CNBS), advised investors to take their time if they’re considering buying into the downtrodden group.
“As a guy who runs a cannabis ETF … my view is that the size of the addressable market has grown,” Seymour said shortly after returning from the MJBizCon cannabis business conference in Las Vegas.
“You’re starting to see separation of the performers and the nonperformers. You’re starting to see capital markets dynamics come to work,” Seymour said. “So, there’s no question about the efficacy [or] what’s happening in the sector. The question is are these companies, right now, you can invest in?”

When To Purchase Etfs vs Stocks. When to Buy ETFS vs Stocks (6 Times When Investing In Etfs Is Better Than Picking Stocks)
By the end of this video you will have much better idea of when invest in etfs (Exchange traded funds) versus selecting individual stocks. Let’s begin
1. When the sector has a narrow dispersion of returns.
Sectors that have a narrow dispersion of returns from the mean do not offer stock pickers an advantage when trying to generate market-beating returns. For example lets assume there are 100 companies in the utility sector and most of them provide an annual rate of return of 4%, because the performance of all companies in these sectors tends to be similar. This is usually true for consumer staple investments as well.
Its kind of like trying to choose which McDonalds to go to. No matter which one you choose the hamburger is basically going to taste the same.
Since the dispersion of returns from these kind of investments tends to be narrow or similar; picking individual stock does not offer sufficiently higher return for the risk so purchasing a utility etf or index fund might make the most sense in this example. .
2. When you want to invest in a particular market sector or industry, but you have limited knowledge of that sector or industry
For example, if you believe that now is a good time to invest in the mining sector, you may want to gain specific industry exposure. However, you are concerned that some stocks might encounter political problems harming their production. In this case, it is prudent to buy into the sector rather than a specific stock, since it reduces your risk.
You can still benefit from growth in the overall sector, especially if it outperforms the overall market.
3. When the performance drivers of a company are difficult to understand.
These companies may possess complicated technology or processes that cause them to underperform or do well. Perhaps performance depends on the successful development and sale of a new unproven technology. You find it difficult to understand the company or industry.
Chipper told me a pharmaceutical company was going to do well, but I don’t understand how they operate, and there are so many of them to choose from. Which one do I pick?
Unlike in the first example where the dispersion of investment returns were narrow, the desperation of returns in this case are wide so may even more challenging to pick the winning stocks in the industry.
The biotechnology industry is a good example, as many of these companies depend on the successful development and sale of a new drug. If the development of the new drug does not meet expectations in the series of trials, or the FDA does not approve the drug application, the company faces a bleak future. On the other hand, if the FDA approves the drug, investors in the company can be highly rewarded.
4. When you want instant diversification
ETFs provide instant diversification relative to individual stocks. It would be challenging to have a properly diversified portfolio with 10 individual stocks, but relatively simple with the same number of ETFs. (To learn more, see 10 Ways ETFs Can Grow Your Portfolio.)
5. Invest In Hard-to-access Markets
Owning gold is a pain for most individual investors; owning SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE:GLD) (which owns gold bullion) is simple. Not only does this ETF bypass the bid-ask spreads of retail gold and the expense of rolling over futures contracts, but it has no storage or security requirements. Likewise, investors can access commodities like copper, precious metals, timberland and so on through the convenient forms of ETFs. (For more, check out Commodities: The Portfolio Hedge.)
6. Less time consuming way to invest
The iShares US Medical Devices ETF (NYSE:IHI) contains 40 different stocks. It would take weeks for an individual investor to do proper due diligence on each of those names, and that is one of the advantages of ETF investing.
Why should I spend all my time trying to sit here and pick individual stocks? I need to get my sorceress in Diablo 2 to level 99!
Because the impact and importance of any one stock is relatively small, investors can spend their time thinking about which sectors and markets are poised to perform and make investment choices without being bogged down by an overwhelming amount of initial and ongoing due diligence.

http://optionalpha.com – There are subtle but importance differences between trading these 3 different types of underlyings. In this quick and short video I’ll explain the benefits/drawbacks of each style.
In particular we prefer if possible to trade ETFs and Index options because they have much less „tail risk“ and are generally more liquid for entering and exiting.
