This is a question I usually ask Fund Managers by the end of every meeting – how much cash do they typically keep within a stock portfolio? The most common answer varies from 0% (completely vested) to around 15%, but the average usually hovers around 5% roughly. Just what exactly exactly is a “cash level” and just why is this so important?

The cash level within a collection would indirectly show an investor’s comfort level with current valuations and whether he perceives any opportunities to help expand add on to positions or even to switch out of less attractive positions to more appealing ones. My suggestion is never to be fully spent (i.e. 0% cash level) as this means that you would not have any ammunition to average down should there be a market crash or severe downturn. 200,000)). This is to make sure you have enough firepower for averaging down on chosen attractive positions, while also not letting too much of the cash rot away in a bank account earning close to zero results.

Now that I’ve briefly discussed on portfolio structure, it’s time to check out the equally essential requirement of profile management. By “Management”, I refer to how one should continuously monitor and keep an eye on the profile, similar to the way a gardener keeps track of his young saplings or adult crop.

Using the plants analogy, a collection is something which you need to grow, nurture and water so that it will perform well, and also save you a lot of heartache in the event a blow-up is experienced by any position. Monitoring is an essential feature of any portfolio and the astute investor should spend sufficient commitment to keep up with the financials and business outlook for the companies he has invested in.

At minimum, reading and reviewing the quarterly statements, press presentation and produces slides should be mandatory; while also reviewing any periodic or ad-hoc corporate announcements concerning M&A, contract wins or other pertinent newsflow. Re-balancing identifies the act of trimming certain positions or adding on to others, or to sell away some positions in order to include new ones. In a nutshell, this means making changes to your stock portfolio on an on-going basis. For myself, I really do not feel much need for re-balancing unless my investment thesis gets invalidated, in which case I would need to market one of my investments (e.g. in the entire situations of MTQ, SIAEC as well as the Hour Glass).
