If a company is being bought out for cash, then the only reason to hold on to it is if you either don't need the money and want to save on the trade fee (cheap), or you think there might be a counter offer and a bidding war. If the company is being bought out for stock, then you have to decide whether you want to become an owner of the new company, whether it's growth potential, the quality of it's management, the soundness of its financials, is worth your investment dollar.

The price of the company being acquired will usually rise to the premium being offered by the purchaser, so if you decide to sell, you will get somewhere close to the purchase price.
