I own 2 stocks that I consider to be "story stocks". That is stocks that are on the cutting edge of a particular technology which, if sucessful, could propell the stock up tenfold plus. My problem is that with a stock like this, how does one decide when the momentus rise(10x plus)is nearing an end. By way of example, AOL could have been bought mfor less than $1 at one time, and then rose to $80+. While I don't expect to sell at the high, I'd rather not sell at $5 only to watch it rise to $25!!!! Any advice?
