How much of a stock portfolio should be in small/mid-cap stocks, and how much in international stocks?
(Assuming the rest is in large cap S&P 500 stocks.)
@Ryan: Yeah, I’m talking about funds, not picking individual stocks.
it depends on your experience and your success in the past at picking your own stocks… Over time generally small caps outperform the larg caps… are you looking to put it into a small cap fund or picking your own? If you pick your own most people i’ve read say 10% and then after a year if you’ve beaten the market index, you may continue you to increase your portfolio %
