I think the philosophy is to sell half of your investment when you start getting uncomfortable. It is much easier, psychologically speaking, to watch a stock fall from $300 to $55 when you have taken your original investment off the table. It makes it easier to let it run.

I don't think this is the same as the traders advice to sell at 250 and buy at 75.
