I to purchased a small position on a recommendation from TMF Stock Advisor.

As was mentioned by an earlier post I did not expect to be rewarded with this size gain (just over 50%) in what, 18 months. Actually it would have been nice if it had come quicker... Also purchased JBLU from the same monthly recommendations and needless to say I am still waiting for that to get back in the money... Hope that did not sound like crying!!!

Bottom line to me is that I would probably sell this type position in this type investment whenever I had this type return. Did not expect it to be a to the moon rocket or to be a 3 bagger in my lifetime. The company just does not fit that mold...

I sold @ 57.20 the day of the announcement knowing that it could and should go to 59 but who knows if and when. Granted the risk of holding is small but so is the potential 3% or 4% upside from here. You are already down another $1 while you decide...

Just one more Fools opinion...
