I suggest a different question set?

Are you in total up or down relative to the S&P500? If you are up or at least equal in total, you have done well. Probably reasonable to sell the bad 5. Do you have other investments that look good now?

Can you point to anything that has fundamentally changed in your down stocks? If regulators or covid has unexpectedly hurt those stock AND you expect that to continue - selling is a decent consideration.

On the other hand if you can't point to anything fundamental that has changed, what basis do you have to sell? If you sell because a stock is going down, you are being driven by others in the market. Maybe not the best approach if your goal is beating the market.
