In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser takes a question from a reader who asks: "I have a large investment in Disney and InvenSense . Should I sell Disney at $82 and reinvest proceeds into InvenSense? If I do this I will have 2,900 shares of InvenSense hoping for a upward movement."

As a guideline, Jason believes that you don't want to overweight your portfolio in any investment. No matter how much you may like the company and its prospects, investors need to expect the unexpected, and diversity helps prepare you for just that. Because small caps are inherently riskier because of their size, investors should plan on owning a number of small caps to spread that risk out.

Looking for a little protection against volatility? Dividend stocks are the answer.
One of the dirty secrets that few finance professionals will openly admit is that dividend stocks as a group handily outperform their non-dividend-paying brethren. However, knowing this is only half the battle. The other half is identifying which dividend stocks in particular are the best. With this in mind, our top analysts put together a free list of nine high-yielding stocks that should be in every income investor's portfolio.
