3 days Diversification question for smaller accounts Reddit     

Hey guys. I’m relatively new to investing in the stock market (few months in) and have a question about diversification. For smaller accounts, is there a point where diversification isn’t as worth it? For example, I am going to be getting about a 1k tax return soon. I’m not asking for advice on the stocks specifically, so I won’t list names, but let’s say there’s 4 stocks that I believe will do pretty well. Would be be worth it to put 250$ in all 4, even though it might only be 1 or 2 shares of each? Or since its a relatively small amount, would it be better to just put 500$ in 2? Thanks for any advice!
