The need for Diversification

It doesn’t matter in which part of the world you look for investments: you must know what you are doing. Find investments you know a lot about. I happen to think that commodities are the better place to be in right now. If people can’t spell commodities, they should not buy them. Some who know a lot about rice might put all of their money into rice. You should not do anything you don’t know. - Jim Rogers on the need for Diversification
