Q: Hi,

Long time subscriber and was curious as to the weightings of these four stocks in the BP. ranging from 1.15% to 1.76%. Conventional wisdom is that as weightings get closer to 1%, any movement has less effect on the overall portfolio.

What does one look for to justify holding on to these smaller holdings? I have a long time frame, and I know three of the four are recent additions, with OTEX being increased once.

Just looking for my held to be held, I suppose.

Thanks in advance.

Q: If you held the following smaller cap stocks in positions of 0.5% to 1.0% of your total stock portfolio, and wanted to reduce the number of holdings by selling several of them and using the money to add to others, which ones would you sell and which ones would you add to: ACQ, ADEN, AEP, AND, CHW, CJ, DCM, ECN, GEO, HPS.A, LNF, NOA, PRL, QIPT, RCH, RET.A, SFC, STLC, SVI, TVE, WELL, XTC. Assume overall portfolio is well diversified so sectors not a consideration, and that this is the riskier part of portfolio, so, higher risk is fine. Would be great if you could pare this list of 22 stocks down to about 10-15. Thanks.
