Fred, I am pretty diversified. I ,too, own a REIT(thanks to you), bond fund, GE, GT,F,TYC,SNG(thanks to some of you) and about five mutual funds. It is just that I believe that there is a time to sell and take some profits. The big question is "WHEN"? I did fairly well earlier when the price rose and then dropped. I was planning to sell at about 21.50(I posted that here, but I was on the road a lot and the stock flew by that figure. Also, unlike most other posters here,I have been buying every week, I have bought at @$30 a share and as low as $12. I am not suggesting that we are at the highest price we can go, but it may be time for a stratigic sell, maybe 500 shares. Just wanted some other thoughts.
You seem to have all your eggs in one basket. I have diversified and own various other companies. In 1987 I bought 2 companies NSC abd CLX for the same amount of money. My wife liked NSC. Now after splits and dividends NSC is worth 10k and CLX 28k. I am not suggesting CLX but still own it, but have diversified and own a REIT and tobacco stocks for the dividends. I don't consider anything unless it pays at least 2%.
