Know your risk tolerance and align it with your portfolio. There are many different tests you can take to find out your risk tolerance. You also need to figure out how much risk or how little risk you need to take to reach the goals you’ve set for yourself.
Diversification is not sexy, but it gets the job done. When you diversify your investments, you increase your chances that something you’re invested in does well.
