Assume that you are going to the market having all your cash in your purse. What will happen if a man picks your pocket? But if you keep your money in several places you will be able to save at least part of them.
Keep a safe zone. You may invest most of your money in BFL since it is one of the best counters but not all you have.

Happy investment

agree mate,it will be disaster if company fails to comply with environment factors,bcoz we all know that today business environment is so sophisticated and highly dynamic,so dont try to put all cash in one share,try to diversify little...
btw if you are a trader,then you may can get a good chance to trade wisely by putting all money in one share,but this will be high risk and high return...
but my final suggestion is to be wait with cash until things get good momentum Very Happy

You should ask yourself why BFL? I believe there are counters which are much better than BFL. Open your eyes and dont go after the crowd. If you ask retailers to list their PFs you would see most of them would have only BFL, TAFL, and GRAN.

CSE is much bigger than most of us think.

I am not a big fan of diversification: More than 50% of my equity investment is in a single company. But that's an Investment Trust (which provides some degree of diversification).

If you must put all your eggs in one basket, make it an Investment Trust.

Some farming-based companies do have potential, but there are too many vagaries involved in the business.

That may be a safer option. I feel safer with a diversified portfolio, stock market is still very unpredictable. Might stabilize next week.

Last quarter there was unusually high income tax deduction in BFL. What would have been the cause? Maybe something to do with import of maize?

Your opinions appreciated.

What do u think, Is this a stupid decision or wise decision, I'm going to do this B'cos I believe BFL worth at least 350/= Rolling Eyes
100% on one counter would be higher the risk.
Yep more the risk more the return.
But don't forget risk mean not always the return.

If you can remember some months ago there was rumor telling LOLC going to hit 200s. Trusting that rumor some investors invested their money 100% on LOLC. Then suddenly it came down to 120 level with out at least touching 150 and now it is 98.

There fore investing 100% in a one counter is not a good investment strategy. May be a good gambling strategy. Wink

Thanks.

Pls try to invest on another 2 or 3 companies on different sectors like banking/hotels/plantation/trading/manufacturing/food and beverages.

BLF is a good share..................

Agreed...

I've invested in TWO investment trusts / Funds...

And at the moment I'm also trying this strategy where I'm trying to follow another fund's (Not listed) investment portfolio (NOT the Trading portfolio) JUST FOR THE SAKE OF THE EXCITEMENT Razz

Amidst all this I keep my swing trading & other investments separated from all these.. Very Happy

@nkuda...it is not advisable to invest,all your money in one share..specially if you are new to investing/trading and if your decision is based on a rumour.

Since antonym has already given a hint.. I'd add some spice..
Frankly if I go with anything, this investment trust should not be a total investment trust, I consider it as a two in 1 investment strategy... I believe due to their investment portfolio it can be taken as an investmetn trust too.. Wink
