Why should in NOT BE POSSIBLE OR LEGAL? Having a GLOBAL view of the industry helps you make better decisions. You also need foresight, the ability to guess correctly and when to FOLD THEM, WALK AWAY OR RUN. You will get stung more times than making a Gain...plan on it. That is why not everyone is in the stock market investing. It is a gamble.

Maybe you would be better off betting on the Ponies.

Generally speaking, there is no law against that. However, depending on who you work for and what your job is - your employer may have some conditions that you could even have signed your approval of in your contract. I would suggest checking with your compliance department if you are in any banking role or with HR (I think that's your best bet) in other industries.

Of course it's both possible and legal.

Of course it is. There are no restrictions on what companies you can purchase.

Buying stock in rival companies is both possible and perfectly legal.

If you're talking about diversifying your holdings then you need to have all sectors, Tech, Financials, etc., invested in.
