Why is Overconcentration Dangerous?

Representing Investors Nationwide

Diversification is the cornerstone of a profitable stock profile and the reason for this is simple: too much concentration in a specific area can result in significant losses when the market fluctuates. Why then would a stock broker encourage a client to concentrate on one specific market sector? The reasons can be as complex as stock market fraud itself.

Overconcentration is appropriate in some cases, particularly for risk-tolerant investors. But when an investor is not in this category, overconcentration is a very dangerous thing. When a stock broker encourages a client to over concentrate or makes those changes on his own, he may be liable for damages that result.
