When it comes to managing the wealth you've accumulated in any one stock, have you ever asked yourself, "How much is too much?" Holding a large position in one stock generally increases your risk level compared to a well-diversified portfolio. (Keep in mind, however, that diversification cannot eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and/or uncertain returns.)

An investor with a significant portion of his or her wealth in one stock may have accumulated that concentrated position in a number of ways, such as:

• Equity compensation, including stock options and restricted stock
• Building sizable positions of company stock in an employer-sponsored retirement

The vacant lot at 59 Water St. is the subject of an information session on affordable housing development on Monday night at 7 in the Wiliamstown Elementary School auditorium. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Do not expect any of the rancor that accompanies discussions of other properties when the Affordable Housing Committee hosts a Monday evening public listening session on developing the former town garage site.   Over the last 11 months, affordable housing advocates have drawn heavy criticism for suggesting that a pair of town-owned parcels currently in conservation could be developed at some future date.   But no one has raised any concerns about whether to build on the

The stock market has been down all week. Investors have been so busy biting their nails over the debt ceiling and the budget debates that they have had no time to buy this dip. The question is should they?

The S&P 500 has fallen about 33 points since last week, or roughly 1.8 percent. I blame our elected clowns. As the clock runs out and a Tuesday shutdown of the government grows ever closer, weak-kneed investors are bailing. Yet a government shutdown is small potatoes compared to the risk of not raising the debt ceiling.

In yesterday's column "Play It Again (Uncle) Sam," I explained that government shutdowns have occurred 17 times since the seventies. The longest was a

The annual parade is seeking support from the community.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Fall Foliage Parade is hoping to scare up some more support this year.

The event is set this Sunday, Oct. 6, with Grand Marshal Paul Marino and the very October theme "Haunts, Legends & Ghost Stories."

But the annual celebration only happens through the generous support of the entire community, said organizers.

The 58th parade, organized by the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce and the city of North Adams, has set a fundraising goal of $40,000 for all the bands, floats and marching units that will march from the former Walmart to Main Street.

It's not just money that keeps the
