Portfolio Weighting

An important question in building a portfolio is what kind of weighting do you want to put on different sectors from the market?

Personally, I’m of the opinion that you start with a solid base of the more stable sectors like Consumer Staples, Utilities, and Telcoms before branching out into the more speculative and economically sensitive Consumer Discretionary, Industrial, Financial and the like.

Here are a couple articles I wrote about my own public portfolio discussing its sector weighting and changes I contemplated to improve it.
