After holding on for 20 years, I have finally sold a chunk of my stock portfolio and paid off all debt except for my home mortgage. The numbers are cringe worthy and I don't want to go into the details, but lets just say I paid off a debt pushing 6 figures with a stock portfolio that finally hit 7 figures. Dad was a CEO at the company I put most of my money in, so I understood what they were doing and where they were going (no insider info, I held on through the peaks and valleys) and paid interest in the hopes of a decent payoff. Now I can let the rest ride. I am just lucky it worked out for me. Whew!
