Hi toofuzzy,This is a very complex question. It touches the area where AIM cannot really help you. This is were your own DD must help you. If you find that the company behind the stock cannot live up to the expectations embedded in the stock price, then by all means GET OUT!.IMHO this is a neglected area within AIM. AIM is about cash/stock allocation, NOT about stock/fund selection. This part is up to you. Unfortunately I have the idea that a lot of AIMers stick to their choice through thick and thin. IMHO this is wrong. For example I had just started AIMing CREE. In fact I just made my first sell. Then the company reported earnings, which were terrible and could no longer justify the stock price. So I sold the complete holding. (They were trading at $23 at the time, and I feel that they are on a date with sub $10)The money is now used in other AIM accounts, so I still AIM with it, just not in CREE anymore.This is also what happens if you AIM a fund. The stocks in the fund will also change all the time, depending on company expectations. So if you are in stocks instead of funds, then you will need to take care of that aspect yourself.Having said this, the 50% rule you mention is a good one. There are yet others that stop buying altogether when the 50 day EMA crosses the 200 day EMA downwards. Mystic has a variant on this as well.I know this does not really help, but it is my view on the matter,Best,Rien.
