Now that's a good one :) Meant to ask you, how did you get your name dividendseeker when you have mostly growth stocks with little dividend yields? Also, you have been helpful in your list of stocks so here goes for me for now for you et al:
ABC, AVGO, BSET, BURL, CVTI, HBI, KR, LABL, MNST, PATK, PLUS, SWKS (40%), TA.
Actually I think it's pretty simple. If you think the stock is worth 102 (and I do) you buy it if you think it is going higher. If you don't, just don't buy it or sell it if you think it has peaked. I would not try to complicate things. If you are putting a stop loss that means you do not think the stock is worth it at that price (99) and I think it's well worth it. Forget the day to day #$%$ unless you see a material change in the company/analyst report or some such catalyst. Playing the ups and down often leads to a scenario where in this case you might sell at 99 and the stock then bounces up to 110---and you are not a shareholder for this part of the gain. As I said, keep it simple mi amigo :)
Good topic for conversation as I was wondering the same thing---it just seems to me that SWKS is the "best of the breed". One thing I have noticed is that in the last few days some of the long-time posters have seemed to indicate the stock is extended, but it still looks to me that if you just hang on to the best of the breed, there may be some bumps along the road, but in the end you will be holding a stock that could be at 140 by the end of the year.
