Hi all, My better half and I have a small portfolio of shares (just 6 US companies) in an SMSF. Now it's coming up to the annual anniversary of buying them and they have performed pretty well. Worst share performance was 4.5% over the year (Facebook), sold that one before the data scandal hit. I notice FB now above our sellling point, ha! Anyway the others that we still hold are all sitting at minimum 30% gain. I appreciate this is pretty good going, but it's making me nervous as well (too good to last). So much is written in the financial press and mainstream media about stock picking, asset allocation, short term trading. Very little about the situation I face - how to preserve the profits. I've thought about trailing stops, selling part of each share parcel, pulling initial investment out and letting the "gains" run forever. Then the problem is where to put that cash...and round I go again, analysis paralysis. Also I sometimes think that maybe I shouldn't mess with a good thing. But back in the 2000 tech wreck I just held on, and lost a substantial amount. So I'm throwing the question out there - anyone lucky enough to have good gains, how do you manage them?
