Thanks, fleg, Chris and others who responded so well!

This afternoon, I talked with one of the very helpful reps at Fidelity where my account is, and she explained that a Trailing Stop Loss order would enable me to benefit from an upward turn in HSY should there be one (as there was, for example between November 17 when it closed at $53.14 and December 5th's closing price of $55.41).

This was new information and made sense, so I changed the order and used a trail amount of $1.00 with today's close of $53.26, on a "Good 'Til Cancelled" basis. Although my aim to diversify is strong, I don't want to panic.

Guess I'm a hands-on learner, and I'm also open to further feedback from fellow-Fools.
