"Is this how to post? How do I know where? I'm 85, retired & have been doing my own investing for some time. My first investment from Fool recommendation was Dell in early 1990s. Made lots & lost lots because I didn't want to pay all those taxes. Very stupid move; now I'll gladly pay any taxes due on a great windfall that I capture. "

It's always good to 'capture' some of your gains by selling part of your earnings. WHen you've made a killing....don't be the one that is killed later when the stock has a hiccup.
