Ages ago I bought shares of several companies. A very unmustachian thing to do, but this was when I was younger and dumber.
Some of those shares did really well (the best is CELG, +205%), and some did terribly (worst is EDF, -88%). Globally I’ve made money, especially taking into account the dividends, but I would have made a lot more with ETFs.
I’ve been keeping those shares around in case the crappy ones rebound and I haven’t sold the good ones because I still have plenty of extra cash to invest. But now I wonder if that’s really the best strategy.
What would you guys recommend? Should I sell everything and put it into my ETFs? Should I only sell the winners and wait for the losers to recover one of these decades? Should I do nothing until I’ve invested all the extra cash?
