I've been investing for over 20 years now, but I still struggle with this decision. It is especially true when the stock in question is one of my top performing stocks. It can be quite tempting to take a profit and run; however, taking a profit may not be a good long-term decision.
To make a decision to sell such a stock, I go through a sequence of questions that I ask myself and then depending on the answers I get, I would either keep the stock or sell it for a profit.

Thought, I write about our recent Utah summer vacation and take a break from usual investment related topics and "market is falling" rant.
For 2017 summer vacation, we picked Utah as our destination because we wanted to visit Zion and Bryce Canyon National Park.

Check out my stocks shopping list!
I maintain a shopping list of stocks that I'm interested in buying under right buying conditions.
The right buying conditions come true when certain valuation, dividend, and price movement metrics reach a reasonable value or an attractive range.
