We will be receiving some IBM and Microsoft stocks from our family's estate my question is should we sell the stock at the prices now or keepit and sell when it is higher . Some of the siblings want to sell now and some not??Which would be financially a better decision?

I reply:

We need more information to intelligently answer your question. In the future, will IBM stock go up or down? What about Microsoft? Once you tell us the answer to these questions, we'll have a better idea whether you should keep or sell the stocks. --Bob
