“Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing.”
– Warren Buffett


I find this interesting as all over social media tells us we have to focus on diversification but yet they love Warren Buffett....then proclaim they know what they are doing....which is it?

I love the quotes from Legendary traders, they have a whole new perception of the world. They are simple, yet many fail to see them:

2. Risk Comes from not knowing what you are doing - Warren Buffet
3. If stock market experts were so experts they would be buying stocks, not selling advice - Norman Ralph Augustine.
4. One of the funny thing about stock market is, every time one person buys other sells, both think that they are astute - William Feather
5. Stock Market is a device to transfer money from impatient to the patient. - Warren Buffet.
