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.

This ensures that the size of portfolio holdings is commensurate with their level of risk and potential return.
