Look the discussion was regarding selling down a portion of a stock to maintain the % balances of a balanced fund.
No the thread is not about balanced funds, I am talking about managed share funds. Yours is the first reference to this thread being about balanced funds.Big difference-even more rules, because of investing in more asset classes.
My point was, you don't lose by selling a % of a winner(ie your cag) thats profit it's the reinvesting of the profit thats the thing.
Me and CAG are totally different because with CAG the fundamentals are not there. It is a speculative stock. This is why I sold down to take profits.
My original reference in this thread was to stocks that have risen, but with continuing good fundamentals etc, being sold down "unnecessarily".
Ok I'm not that old geez decade after decade.
My point here was that Warren Buffett can claim this and he is a LTB&H.
But really truthfully if you can't put your money into a index fund or Berk because you wasting time + money.
Don't understand this bit.
