How much diversification is enough for stocks?
Hi! If im not wrong, the ideal number is 30. However, it must be 30 different stocks spread across different industries (Eg 1 Apple 1 JP Morgan 1 Mac). I think you can consider stocks from different countries as divisification because the stock is not exposed to just one market. Ultimately, it depends on your style of investing and what you like. Are you a REITs type of person? (diversify across the different reits), or Growth? (Tech stocks and Tesla) or depends on the company (you understand the business and the company has good moat) Then again Warren Buffett said that the average investor should just invest in ETFs that tracks the market if we dont know about investing.

IPOs

SGX

Do you think Grab would list on the SGX anytime time soon?
I think it's very possible that they will IPO in the next few years. Grab has an agreement with Uber that they have to IPO by 2023, or possibly be on the hook for more than 2 billion dollars to Uber. On the contrary, Grab's CEO has said that they can IPO once they are profitable (they are not!). However, I do not think that they will list on the SGX. Instead, they will list on US or HK markets where there is greater investor interest and higher liquidity. Sea Limited (Shopee/Garena) listed on the NYSE, while Razer listed on the HKEx. With the fintech hype going strong in these markets, it is highly unlikely that Grab will IPO on the SGX.

Thoughts on the BigHit IPO and the company's current valuation?
South Korean groups usually have the spotlight for about 5 to 7 years, perhaps even lesser, or till members are about 30 years old. With the uncertainty of the compulsory National Service, the company's profit could be hit tremendously anytime. BTS could be considered an oddball (being that successful) and it is not possible to recreate another band with similar popularity using the same efforts especially in an arts & media industry where trends are changing rapidly. From an investor point of view, the concern of uncertainty is not assuaged by diversifying into other bands. In addition, the members' value is continuously depreciating with age. Assuming that successful band members can avoid National Service, the industry will still be very cyclical due to changing taste and preference of consumers. There will be no knowing how the company will perform in two or more decades from now and therefore not a good company/industry for a long term investment.

Buy some US stocks now? Or Wait till post-vote?
Instead of timing it, go with valuation, if the companies you want to buy are undervalued, go for it. No one can time the market

Anyone subscribed to Motley Fool stock advisor or Rule Breaker?
Nope, I know I sound like a total skeptic but I don't think the main interest of these publications, or many publications for that matter, is to increase the returns of readers or benefit readers primarily. I prefer reading forums or reddit threads (but take these with a pinch of salt as there can be quite a lot of noise :")), as well as free analyst reports. There are a lot more free resources out there that are worth more than a subscription in my opinion!!

Know that not to time market, but will you buy at all time high?
Why not? There are constantly new all time highs being made, that’s how you earn money from the stock market. The ATH of today might be the lowest the stock will ever be in the future.

Anyone invested in the Japanese stock market? Any recommendations or why do people not invest in Japan?
Very good question, after some decades of negative performance, there should be some potential ? As far as I know there is no dedicated Japan Technology index? That would be a nice one: NASDAQ Japan Technology Index versus S&P500, not too bad over the last ca. 8 years. !
