I have some small stocks that have doubled, one that has tripled, and the market sentiment is going against them all, and possibly for good reason (such as little details like higher P/E's than Mount Everest, for example.)

I still believe in the companies but I'm not sure how much I'm willing to give back to the markets if they continue downward. Maybe 20%? And this is much easier to ride out than when one is losing on said position(s).

Then again, I bought more Apple before their conference call, genius that I am (not) so I would pay no attention to me. But I have to. :)
