I was doing that with a single stock Gilead, when it was bouncing between $70 and $80 last year. I made a ton of money in my IRA doing that and then lost every dime of it in oil stocks (mostly Seadrill). I thought I was going from risk to lower risk at the time. Easy come easy go!

I've taken all my investment money out of FBIOX twice(tax defered). Now what's there is a just a bunch of profit. I'm going to let it ride.

I'll start playing with IBB whenever it drops, or appears too.

I was talking last week with my Fidelity guy and commented on how happy I was with FBIOX. His response was "Yeah, for the few who got into it."
