So if you don't currently hold LMS and today was your rebalance day, would you buy LMS, or move down one slot and skip it?

Food for thought: In July I bought IDTI as it was making new highs. It immediately, like the next day or so, started dropping like a rock. It was down >30%, and I wasn't too happy. But, having taken my licks from past mistakes (http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=13198286), I held on.

Today, IDTI is up 6% for me, and again making new highs! And I still have about 5 months to go, for a 6 month hold. In the next 5 months, who knows? As for LMS, I still have 5 months to go for it too.
