You definitely keep better track than me although I plan to do better. For me, it's not always the % of portfolio. It's often when I see the percent change in a particular holding.

I have a couple of strategies depending on circumstances. If it will be a heavy work/travel period or I will be out of the country, I will put in trailing stops. Another is selling half when something has doubled. Sometimes it's just watchful waiting. One other factor is if I am fully invested and something else looks promising.
