Before you go any further, I might humbly suggest you ask the following questions.
- What was the estimated fair value of the stock when you bought it?
- Has some clearly identified event happened in the past 6 weeks that has changed your view on the stock's fair value?
- Do you have a clear idea of what measures or actions would be asignal to sell?
- What is your time horizon and when do you plan on using this money beyond investing?
Some thoughts on these questions:
- If you don't know what the fair value of the stock is then you don't know what to pay?
- If you don't know what to pay, then how do you know when to sell?
- If you are measuring your stocks success or failure in 6 week periods, you might want to also consider horse racing as a form of investing.
I'm not trying to be hard on you, but it seems like you have an idea of stocks that is is the antithesis of value investing. I encourage you to keep asking questions because I think you will find an enormous amount of knowlege on the site. Good luck on your investing. Best - Tom
