I recently inherited ~25k in Humana stock (HUM). As a passive investor I’m considering cashing out and buying ETFs, but the stock has been performing exceptionally well the last 5 years. Should I hold on or diversify?

I would sell it now personally if you just inherited and the basis was stepped up. If you have a large portfolio and the 25k is relatively small, no problem keeping it.


If you inherited $25k cash would you invest all of it in that stock? For me the answer is no to any single stock so I'd sell a portion of it unless $25k is immaterial to your overall portfolio.


These guy has it right. Depends on your NW. if it’s sizable, then just sell and go 100% VTI so you don’t lose sleep over it

Leave the original investment and roll the profit into an etf (vti, iwm, qqq)


Healthcare will continue to go up. I have a financial advisor who is holding on it

I would hold on. I have Molina (MOH) and it’s doing really well.

My Director just chewed me up and started taking over as a lead on my project... 3 weeks in of having no clue what I'm doing, working 10 hrs+/day and multiple sleepless nights, I have to say I'm so relieved. Is it a good idea to take a step back and let my Director run things?
