I like to own securities that don't need tending to, so that when I get bored I can take a year off and not think about it.
These days there's decent index funds for all the odd kinds of equity I want to own, so I'm slowly selling off my individual stocks which is nice.
Simplicity is starting to look more appealing than the questionable benefit of staying under the SIPC coverage maximum, and I'm thinking about consolidating.

Investing will probably always be something of a hobby, but I'm slowly moving towards that ideal.
