Hello

I am slowly working on my retirement savings. Have a roth ira, and have been purchasing some indivdual stocks. One of my purchases is Tommy Hilfiger (tom). I purchased my shares at around 10 dollars a share. The price is now around 16. (would have been nice if my lucent purchase was as good).

I am looking at long term investing. None of the day trader world for me. However, I am wondering if it would be a good thing for me to sell these shares, but funds in my IRA and invest anything that is left in the other shares I have that I am waiting to go up.

Looking for opinions on long term investing for retirement. Would it be better for me to keep the stock? Or what?

Thanks
David
