Great and simply put....

What I'm doing to help avoid that anchoring is to look again at the expectations priced in at the new, higher price. If they're still well below what I believe the company can do, and if the rest of the thesis remains intact, I'll go ahead and buy some more. In other words, I'm trying to judge each investment decision on its own merits, not in relation to when I first noticed the company or first bought it.

How do you force yourself to "start over" each time in how you look at a stock you already own? Curious how you actually do this (i.e., block out the history)!
