StockUp - Yes! We Do Sell Stock!
Scott Horsburgh, CFA and president of the investment management firm Provident Investment Management, shares his insight about what goes into the decision to sell a stock. While most of us have defined criteria for purchasing a stock we are less certain about when to sell. There are valid reasons for selling but selling myths also have developed in the BetterInvesting community over time. In this session we examine several scenarios, discuss when selling is appropriate and the impact selling has on the portfolio. Commonly held myths about selling are dispelled and valid reasons for selling are clarified.
