By nature, almost everyone is some sort of a collector. Some people take that passion and collect rare stamps, comic books or even beanie babies. These are the people we tend to think about when it comes to the notion of amassing something.

However, a lot of us are collecting something that could be doing us a bit harm when it comes to our futures. We have become collectors of investments: a dozen or so funds in a 401(k), a basket of ETFs and bonds in an IRA, and maybe a few individual dividend stocks. The sheer number of holding some investors have accumulated is quite staggering.

And it’s all wrong. Diversification has quickly become di-worse-ification.

For investors, too much or too little of a good thing can be harmful to your portfolio. Getting the number right is critical to long-term performance.
