To MD Cigan -

On your comment that if you have something that is up 50% in 6 months you should sell, in some cases you would be giving up quite a bit.

For example MCD bottomed on 3/11/03 at $12.38. If you would have sold with a 50% gain a few months after that at $18.57 you would have missed the continuing move up to today's current price of $56 (a 200% move).
