I never understood why you don't just buy a few total market funds. The "3 fund portfolio" will cover everything your 45 funds own (unless you made the mistake of owning foreign bonds in which case 4 funds would do the trick) with far less hassle/paperwork/costs and much easier maintenance.

Why own 45 funds over a standard 3 or 4 fund total market portfolio?

Mistakes have been made this year (which is about how long I've been investing). Funny enough a month or two ago it was even worse and I was like 1,500 down.

The CSAL is because WIN did a spin off into a REIT and continued to plunge. I was under the mistaken impression their sky high dividends were sustainable (they weren't).

Pleb tier major, I won't lie. It really wasn't that bad a school. Its mid-tier I think. Shit-tier is schools like Lakehead, Laurentien and UOIT. I picked Guelph because it seemed laid back and had a cool vibe not because I lacked other choices. I did meet a few people that only got into Guelph that were pretty stupid though.

I really don't care if they do. I don't really have time to use the computer anymore since I've graduated except on rare occasions. I work two jobs and I mostly do everything on my phone.

kek another diversifying fag making $20 a week. Find a biotech penny stock with a decent lineup of pipelines and actual consistent revenue growth and decent rep with mgt. Wasting time with this retail investor pleb mutual fund nonsense has never made anyone lots of money. Low beta, highly volatile, and optimize for extreme price variance trends in your favour. Mutual funds are shit, never seen a rich man made out of diversifying under 100k.

>>
>>978735
Not necessarily you pleb. Correlated to market I mean, but price movements could be volatile and still not be related to underlying market movements. Std dev= volatility/risk you clown, at least within conventional investing teachings. That being said the risk has more to do with fundamentals in the long term. Market efficiency theory is bullshit peddled by butthurt pleb profs that can't make a buck on the market.
>>
>>978739
>LAWD HAVE MERCAY!

>A beta of less than 1 means that the security will be less volatile than the market. A beta of greater than 1 indicates that the security's price will be more volatile than the market.

Well, specific advice, what do you suggest then?

Just gamble with penny stocks? Really?

There is a very large amount of people who went bust that way. What makes your strategy better?
>>
>>978748
It's not a gamble if you do your research and pick companies with consistent cash flow and revenue growth as well as a keen understanding of their pipeline technology and what it means for the market. Investing is never about gambling, you cover your risk by doing arduous research and setting firm stop loss rules. For biotech for example you'd need to understand uni level biology and finance. Basically insider knowledge into the products is paramount in the small cap game. Also understanding news catalysts for your company, and how to differentiate between white noise news and something of value. It's really not that difficult, although I personally avoid the otc. Anything too unregulated is dangerous. Stick with "penny" stocks in the 2-$5 range. Diversifying under 100k only limits profit potential, strict stop loss rules and bone crushing research prior to buying can be very profitable.
>>
>>978737
Yeah but at least they're getting commission
>>
>>978745
BETA IS BASED ON THE S&P 500 INDEX.
>>
>>978749
But what about risk?

If it is so easy, why isn't everyone doing it?

And if it is so easy, wouldn't that already reflect on the price (efficient market hypothesis).

Unless your country is doing denationalisation and you can buy state company stocks for pennies (like many did in Russia, Eastern Europe, China), I don't think you are getting rich via it anytime soon.

What is your EDGE? What is your advantage over the market overall?
>>
>>978754
Efficient market hypothesis is false. It's made by prof plebs that can't do well in investing because they're too focused on theory>practical analysis. My edge is unconventional forms of research. Getting to know management, gathering snippets of info that could be deemed questionable from them. Basically you gain an edge when you do the opposite of what most retailers are doing. The stuff they teach in financial econ courses is pseudoscience nonsense. Efficient market hypothesis is literally psyche babble crap. Humans are irrational and emotional, price does not reflect information, rather it reflects emotional post information reaction, which cannot be quantified in any way in the short term. This is why worthless companies like KBIO were pumped up by that kek Shkreli so successfully. Only brainwashed finance undergrads buy into EMH. Everyone does what everyone else does, their hoarding mentality is your profit opportunity, all you need to do is realize that 90% of them lose money, thus you mostly do the opposite of what they're doing to succeed.
>>
>>978749
>Basically insider knowledge into the products is paramount in the small cap game.

Yeah, of course insider info will give you the edge, but how the fuck does a normal person get that info? If it is publicly available on Google, the market knows it and it reflects in the price, does it not?
>>
>>978758
>Efficient market hypothesis is false.

There are 3 variations of the hypothesis, the hard one (fully efficient) is false, but otherwise, the market is more or less semi-efficient. Which means that beating it is HARD and you have to have shit load of edge over competition.
>>
>>978760
Talk to management and interpret their language. Smaller cap companies don't have as much oversight, they will often release insider snippets that are coded in legal jargon. The trick is to decode their jargon and to read body language. They will never risk their position by directly giving you insider info, but knowing how to read people is an excellent skill that translates well in this game.
>>
>>978761
Not true. Market is totally irrational. Efficiency hypothesis is just like technical analysis. It seems to make sense until it doesn't. in the long run not consistent enough to be a useful model.
>>
>>978758
> Getting to know management

Do you mean personally?

>Basically you gain an edge when you do the opposite of what most retailers are doing.

I live in Latvia, how the fuck do I do it?

>>
>>978767
Ok, how much money have you made with this approach, what did you study, when did you start?
>>
>>978770
I was a neuroscience major. I made over 250k with my model. Again I emphasize "bone crushing" research. You need to know these companies inside out, to the point where if you read a news release (relevant to fundamentals) you alter the balance, income,cashflow statement in your head. Started 2 years ago. Learned finance+economics from brother's textbooks+mit open courseware+uni textbooks outside courses.
