I am really okay with what the gains have been and reduced some holding but keeping the core. I always have to discipline myself to sell on rallies and light the load. I really feel this is one of the best stocks to own, and I have felt that way for a long, long time. To me, it is just a class place with a super smart bossman. They are always brewing up new ways to make money--lol.
Today, I was sent an email for a limited edition metal Starbucks rewards card, that costs $450 as a forever card, but is loaded with $400. The idea is to buy one and keep forever as will be worth more in the future years. I am going to order one for that reason, since after all, this rally was great and I have the spare money to do that anyway. Starbucks makes a neat $50 per card sold--pure profit.
You are right - I dumped all my SBUX tonight in AH's at a nice gain! This market takes out all stocks and SBUX has run up a lot. Thanks for the tip to sell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Forgot about the jobs numbers.
