I was actually looking into this very topic yesterday-specifically “filling gaps.” I have a book called “Monster Stocks: How They Set Up, Run Up....”. It has many charts of former high flyers from late 90s through until 2006. What it looked like to me is that some filled gaps and others did not. I don’t know if it was 50/50. But, there definitely seemed to be plenty of occasions where they didn’t fill, or they filled after running up another 50-100%, etc.

I guess maybe the correct answer is if you still want in after the run up, take a less than full position.
