I had a table saw accident which cut 4 fingers to the bone. Was lucky to get a very good hand surgeon, but it took almost a year to get an acceptable level of feeling in those fingers. These things take time (and a lot of pain).
I know "Portfolio Manager". He is a trader, not a long term guy. He was sitting on a nice gain and banked it. That is what he does and there is nothing wrong with that. FWIW I'm long.
