That's exactly how I feel. I have regained an amount I am comfotable with so I have been selling. I do not have the time or inclination to wait while my portfolio recovers from another market swoon. "So much to do and so little time."

I guess misery loves company.

I posted in another thread yesterday and I'll paste it here

I too am not optimistic about the next several years (nothing to do with politics). I always said if I could get my portfolio back close to where it was at the end of 2007, I would reallocate my assets. Well I got there recently so on Monday morning I cashed out of apple and google with plans of increasing the bond side of my portfolio.

Wouldn't you know it? Apple and Google went on a tear this week and as of closing today, I left about 50K on the table.
