Over the years I have accumulated small stock holding across many companies; some of them are inherited as well. Now the problem is there are around 30 companies stock, with small holdings and values (in one case there is exactly 1 share). It is not possible for me to track the performance of 30 odd companies.
In addition for most of the stocks I have no idea of the actual purchase value and the time of purchase and so cannot calculate the actual returns.
In aggregate this kind of holdings consist about 30% of the portfolio, so cannot be ignored.
Wanted to know if anyone has encountered this kind of situation and what some next steps.
If, for example, I wish to consolidate them, then what are the aspects to look at and consider.
Any help would be much appreciated, as I am kind of perplexed.
