This is not a comment about any particular stock rather the idea of selling just because price appreciated.

This could be the biggest mistake we ever make. It certainly was for Rick Munarriz with Netflix costing him well over $1 million by selling early.

Sometimes this is a key sign to the biggest winners ever.

Just google "winners win David Gardner" or "Let winners run high David Gardner"

Or listen to his Rule Breaker Investing podcast about summarizing Stock Advisors 200 picks. Google that or read that episodes transcript and focus on "understanding our biggest losers"

Ultimately do what helps you sleep at night and keeps you invested long term.
