I have held Celgene in my IRA for almost 15 years, started with 300 shares. One sold it all, did due diligence and added it back month later. Have added and sold trading shares but only added in last two years as things came together for the company's cancer pipeline. My last buy was at $72 At times I wanted to slit wrists. Today it is 50% of my portfolio. I have 1500 shares.

I traded my wife's smaller IRA for years. 3 years ago I sold all her stocks and put her 100% in Celgene at 58. She has 250 shares.

I have 2 spec stocks that remind me of Celgene. A thousand shares each.
SGMO (zinc finger gene proteins)and ZIOP. Once for each wrist.
