I think you have to admit an element of luck here, and to suggest that it is a sound investment strategy to put 90% of your net worth in a single company is, at least, an unconventional recommendation. Take Apple, for instance. It's fortunes were very dependent on the charismatic leadership of one person, Steve Jobs. What future would Apple have had if if he succumbed to illness a bit earlier or decided to immerse himself in Zen Buddhism ?
He quoted his one winning pick. Everyone has those. Your post is spot on.

I don't believe in diversification for the hell of it. I was not aware of a second bet in the same league. It's perfectly sound if the investment is right. Warren Buffet's partnership had to rewrite the terms when he wanted to invest more than 60% in 1 stock.

Goldman Sachs partners became rich as many were 90-99% invested in GS which was not even a tradable position till after flotation.

If your happy to work for ever, be sensible & diversify.

Steve Jobs had died before I made that decision to increase my stake, as I said I did not believe the noise in the financial press.

My 2 biggest winners Bidu & Netflix both 20 plus baggers have been mentioned here several times in the past at less than 1/4 of today's price. I bought a flat from a partial sale of those 2 stocks.

Anyway you will never take what I say, so that's fine, I have been buying stocks for 32 years, I know more than I did 10 years ago it's just 1 of those things.

How about sticking to the point of this thread rather than your irrelevant monologues? Go start your own thread or, even better, invest the effort in researching stocks.

How about not joining a discussion forum if you don't want people discussing things?

You don't own the thread just because you started it. If you think it's being derailed too far then use the Report Post button like anyone who's been here for a while (or whiles?) would know?

JJJJJJ...........Best not waste your breath on needy souls. Just ignore! I've learned that there always people who think they need to educate others. They're also often found on the other side of a counter.

Have you seen this?

OK. But I'm curious to know what your exit strategy is. Equities are horribly overvalued at the moment (except maybe in Russia or some Emerging Markets) and a small amount of nervousness could trigger a big crash.

No exit strategy, I don't believe in market timing. I expect to live another 30 years, 90% of my assets will go to charity, far to much to be blown on shoes by the OH.

Having invested through 5 market crashes, each time I loose more on paper than I had in total before the previous crash, time is your friend as returns compound.

Re: Swiss high dividend stocks - your favorites?

Market crashes? I see them as a good opportunity to buy more shares of quality co's and get even more yield on purchase price through recurring dividends.

Brave man. I believe in Russia also, however 10% as strongly as you. What I am not so sure about is if will remain connected to the western financial system. It may, as a matter of strategy, simply default, and opt out, leaving a huge mess behind it. On the other hand, a political rapprochement with Russia would be a seen as a very cost effective way of re-stimulating the European economy, therefore, difficult to resist.
