What’s Your Sell Strategy? What’s Your Sell Strategy?

If you are an investor you are also a portfolio manager. This is no different from owning anything else. If you bought it, you must tend to it until you ultimately sell it. This is true of your investments but also your home, other properties, cars and all the stuff that you own.
