Thanks for the reply.
Sitting on the sideline when stocks like CTRP and BWLD go no where, but straight up is frustrating. Especially, when I thought about buying these stocks, but listened to nay sayers repeating "sell in May and go away." I waited (still waiting) for a pull back to buy and missed out on some terrific gains. I like the idea of buying a little now and even more on a pullback. I may have to redefine my strategy to an investor instead of a trader. It's hard to stay ahead of the game as a trader with comissions and short term tax gains.
