I started with MDP a few months ago.
Started with the buy first recommendations followed by the buys.
I have built a portfolio of 20 stocks.

One of the stocks has really performed well and its percentage of the
portfolio has gone from the recommended 5% to almost 10%.

My question is :

When a stock performs so well that its percentage in the total portfolio is skewed, what is the recommendation:
Should I take some profits and reduce the % back to the original %?

Also, I would like to add some more money to the portfolio.
Do I just go and buy the stocks which are near the guidance ,buy rated but below the recommended % ?
Guess I am looking for some guidance on how to rebalance as well as add additional capital to the portfolio.
