Well ....... it might be a reasonable strategy, but it can (and quite often) be not the best way to invest. The shares that you sell just to offset your cost is lost gain in an up market. Those shares are no longer making you money.

I don't do it. But we all have our own investing systems.

Rich (haywool) always fully long a company or not an owner.
