You’re sitting there saying hmmm, how can I boost cash amid my less than rosy short term orientation?
You sell a non-essential cleaner coal stock and trim a bit of a non core goldie. Then you look over at one of your core holds and you say “now Gary look, you can keep some if you want but nobody was reinforcing you at fitty cents when you first bought it, and nobody’s gonna tell you when to take something off the table for your hard work”.
So I trimmed some KGN. I learned to love taking a loss long ago. Why not love a profit as well? Now I can go back to ignoring the remaining KGN shares. This is all about comfort and strength in uncertain times, no? Cash makes me strong.
