The stocks I buy and hold seem to stumble while the ones I sell seem to continuously climb

Are you selling because the company no longer seems to have the strengths you thought it did? IF that is the case, you may have lost money, but you were at least selling for the right reason.

If your decision is because it has gone up and you want to cash on on your profits, then you are falling for a problem most people have: selling their winners and holding on to their losers in the hope that they will rise.
