    To those who bought multiple times

    Did you intend to buy a 1,000 shares and now have 2,000 shares? Have more $s in BBT than you intended? Are worried you have too many $s in a single stock?

    If you answered "yes" to any of these questions there is no shame in taking some off the table on pops in the stock. Let's say you bougt 500 of those 2000 shares under 18. You can sell that 500 shares for a decent little profit here and reduce your exposure to a singlestock. Not only that it will reduce your cost of the remaing 1500 shares you hold.

    I have found as long as I keep positions at a level I am comfortable with I am apt to hold for the bigger paycheck. Not trying to tell you how to invest - just throwing out an idea if you are invested too heavily in a single stock and are overly concerned about your investment.

    Good luck all.
