I think Tom and Dave would say is your goal should be to end up with the most amount of money after all of this (net of taxes remember). If your money is already in these investments, I would leave it there assuming these are still good investments (just because they are down doesn't necessarily mean they will come back). If you are going to earn more on the investment than the interest on the debt, knock yourself out. To be a Fool, you must have trust in your knowledge and research.

I would say to leave the investments and concentrate any surplus money to paying down the debt. The investments would provide emergency cash or collateral if needed as well.
