This is gospel for investing, but for me it raises the same nagging issue - if I'm in a stock that behaves well, and my understanding if the company is somewhat correct at least based on current known conditions and my history with it, the current price, which admittedly I would likely spend for shares presently, requires me to be right twice - now to sell (with tax implications and expense, possibly) then to buy or not buy later as the price falls or the value proposition changes by company progress.

While I have certainly tried it, I have left a number of excellent prospects in the dustbin. Right twice wrong once, the only question, was it wrong to sell or wrong not to buy back after.
