I think I understand where you are coming from. I don't consider my emergency fund part of my portfolio allocation. In addition, all bond funds are kept in tax advantage vehicles. Do you buy only individual stocks? How many stocks make up your portfolio? Do you equally weigh sectors? I'...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
