Personally, I am so tired of everyone always pointing to NFLX as the reason to ride out the bad times. NFLX is probably the biggest outlier in the history of the stock market. I know people have made money with other stocks, so let's hear some of those success stories. I'm up to here with NFLX already.

It hurt me to do it, but I just unloaded my entire AMBA position, which was very small, mind you -- but I held DDD when it was up 170% and rode it down to about a 60% loss without dumping any of it -- and I also held onto my entire SWIR position when it was up at about 160% and is now at around 55%. When SWIR started to dive, I told myself: "think of DDD. Don't hold on too long." Yet I did. Anyway, maybe selling AMBA was a mistake, but I'm a little tired of getting burned lately. And I can use the cash elsewhere.
