So, you’ve done your research, spent hours conducting due diligence and you are confident that you’ve uncovered a great stock. Time to invest, right? Not so fast. There are two important decisions that rarely get discussed when it comes to buying stocks. 

Deciding on a position size and having a view for when and why you will sell are equally as important as making the call to invest. Gary Rollo, Portfolio Manager of the Montgomery Small Companies Fund has a useful framework that he uses when considering how much of a stock to own. This ensures that the size of portfolio holdings is commensurate with their level of risk and potential return. 

Tune in to this short video for a lesson on position sizing and to hear his approach to exiting a holding.
