Having something better for investment is a perfectly good reason to sell.
I currently have a small position in QCOM (and a large position in MU).
My number one reason to sell is not dependent upon price, profit, or loss.

You should consider selling when your initial reason for the purchase no longer exist.......

It's always the same reason....stock appreciation. --gg Actually sometimes dividends, however if the stock is going down in value or going sideways for a long time, even those can get the boot. "If you're not pulling your weight, why are you on my team?" See GE, it's stock value is lower now than in 2013.

If a stock price goes down and my initial reason for purchase still exist,
I am more likely to buy than sell.
If a stock price goes up 10-20-50% and my initial reason for purchase still exist,
I am more likely to buy than sell.
If my reason for purchase (merger, dividend increases,drug development, etc.) no longer exist,
I will sell independent of the stock being up or down.

Buffet calls this buying the company not the stock.


Note; Jeff Immelt has been GE's biggest problem. He is gone.
While I don't own GE here. I could see constructing a reason (split up the company)
to buy GE.

QCOM may be close to a buy vs a sell now. A pull-back to about $60 would be good. (Point and Figure charts) Monthly Momentum just turned positive.

I am neutral on QCOM here. I like your plan on waiting for a pull back before buying.
Most semis, including the index, have been better places for money than QCOM.
I like MU, INTC, and the SOX better than QCOM.


I bought QCOM expecting a positive resolution with AAPL but sold the Broadcom pop.
Between the QCOM board, Broadcom's low bid and a hard process to get government approval, I don't expect a merger and would sell any merger pop.
