Gretna: nothing wrong with that approach. However, if your core GERN holding is large, you may be able to make more money by swing-trading a portion of your holdings. Look at the peaks and valleys in GERN PPS chart as a function of time.
It is highly unlikely that that GERN will shoot to the moon. It is more likely that there will an upward trend with higher highs and higher lows. Technical analysis could be an extremely valuable tool in this scenario.
My objective is to make money, not hold or cherish stocks.
