FWIW, CSCO was one of the recent "losers" in my annual portfolio re-balance. As hard as it was to do it, I went with the "If you were buying with new money today, would you ever buy this stock?" approach. I wouldn't, so I ditched it in favor of another. "Dear John, it's very difficult for me to write this note to you. I feel brief is probably best, so I'll just say it: I've met another ticker, and we're in love."

Sigh. Hurts to sell something at a loss, but then again, at least I don't have to deal with the weekly annoyance of watching it sputter around at (for me) a 65% loss...
