    A friend of mine didn't sell when he made a profit on the stock market.

    Next morning, BOOM!

    He was hit by a bus.

    Also, this is far from my only investment, but I agree that holding it any longer would be a dangerous proposition. I have a purchase order out and will be off-loading 4500 shares (about half) in the morning for a gross profit of about $58,000 (of course, the government will take about $18,000 but such is life).

    I'm deciding whether to re-invest the $40K into another high-risk, or just roll it back into my standard portfolio of blue-chips.

    roll it back

    I missed out on a $35k gain once.

    FIgured I'd just take my good fortune and play again. Wrong choice Joyce.

    How many years of cockswain experience do you have?

    We don't want just any cockswain.

    Ivy League, bitches. Sweatervests and corncob pipes all up ins.



    Also, misbehavin, you should do what monkeybomb did one time and buy a large pizza for like the first three people that pm you. Make it a popularity contest too.

    isn't there speculation that the fed will lower the interest rate?

    that is why the market went batshit

    also, why are you not selling the total profit?

    roll it back

    lightning very rarely strikes twice

    But I usually keep a number of high-risk stocks on hand. Never any more than $50K worth (initial investment), but usually between 5-10 stocks.

    I originally only spend $5K on this stock, but when it was steadily climbing, I kept investing more and more. Spending $45K on a high-risk is highly unusual for me, and it just happened to pay off this time.

    If I put it back into the high-risks, I would probably spend $5K on 2 or 3 new high-risk and have the rest sit in my money market balance.

    I'm still keep about 4500 shares of this stock, just in case it keeps climbing, though.

    You should probably sell your ASCENT SOLAR TECH stock and diversify into some index funds (I recommend emerging markets).

    Really, with the interest rate cut today, pretty much everything is going up. I'd get out while the getting's good!

    You are still better off to take what is basicly free cash, and securing it, rather then risking it. You are in no worse shape since your intial investment is still invested.

    Makes sense to me. Rolling it into my standard portfolio it is!

    The market is going batshit because the housing market is in the tank. Property values in various areas of the country took a giant shit and that is in turn affecting the interest rate through lack of home sales and new loans.
