Week in Review

My positions had a pretty decent week, even with the dip in the market early on. Here's what my portfolio looks like along with the percentage based on my original basis.

Apple - Up 10.51%
ECA - Up 8.23%
Yahoo - Up 6.16%

Lucent - Down .73%
Sirius - Down 7.64%
URBN - Down 1.06%
QQQQ - Down 1.49%

According to Jim Cramer's Sane Investing in an Insane World, a personal portfolio for an "investor hobbyist" should have 5-7 well diversified holdings. Admittedly, mine is not as spread out as it should be - what am I missing? Health care, financial, transport...I'll look into diversifying more in the weeks to come.
