Any stock experts here?

Was wondering when you decide to sell a stock.... In this case it would be fedex... It's way up right now due to things, and they are 'predicting' thier biggest season ever coming up with Cyber Monday and the Holidays... NOT looking at selling it all, just enough to get caught up... Idea's ???

If it has doubled in price then we sell half and figure on keeping the other half for free.

Hi monkey,
FedEx is a cyclical business. The market looks 6 months ahead to provide a price for today. The two emotions that rule the market are fear and greed. Just like it is difficult to leave Vegas when you are winning, I have always taken my profit, moved on and been happy. Nobody went broke making a profit.

Knew a guy who had 10000 shares of Qualcomm...bought them at $65-75 a share. Roared up to over $600 a share or so with a couple of splits in between. He was holding even though he had a tremendous profit for the taking...late 2000, it was going higher...had to.

Then 2001 hit...today Qualcomm, last time I looked, was $65/ share...moral to the story...don't let greed get in the way of taking a smart profit

Sell.

I have never invested in individual stocks. I did not have the nerve and enjoy sleeping well way too much.

My stuff is spread out like doggie scat in mutual funds. Never had a down year.

Much more fun to pay taxes on profits than carry losses forward. Go on. Take the money and run.

Sell and buy stocks that pay dividends or invest in tax free bonds.

That works.

Or buy no-load funds that pay dividends and the trades are free.

Don't gamble; take all your savings and buy some good stock and hold it till it goes up, then sell it. If it don't go up, don't buy it.

If you have a good profit, it is never a bad thing to take at least your original capital off the table.

Taking some, or all of the profit is also a good thing. Speculation is always better done with the houses money versus your own money.

If you take a profit, you did a good thing. Never regret additional upside potential.

The biggest mistake made is letting a profit stand until it becomes a loss.
