StockXpo’s Diversification Strategy

Companies often think about diversification when they reach a certain point in their development. Igor Ansoff identified diversification as one of the four main growth strategies in 1957, and it allows companies to look at other markets or new products to expand their reach and revenue.

Diversification aims to smooth out unsystematic risk occurrences in a portfolio by ensuring that the positive performance of some investments balances out the negative performance of others. Only if the securities in the portfolio are not completely correlated—that is, if they react to market factors differently, frequently in opposing ways—does diversification pay off.

If you are following all strategies and watchlist – here is the recommendation for stockxpo diversification Strategy- 

  • SELL: (JAKK, WIRE,  DFIN, SRTS, VRTV, ON, USIO)
