10 years of economic growth & biggest bubble in equities created in wallstreet history & one should make sense out of this . When the bubbles burst ...they take down very good companies along with it. I am not emotional neither in love with my holdings , I act long or short on any of holdings depending on the situation. You would have protected your long position without selling your holding in VRTS..by short selling againgst your holding in the 150's or so & today you would have closed that position without touching your core holding & would be laughing to the bank. Use all the weapons available to you...that is wall street. Do you know what COllar is?
