The Wonders of a Balanced Portfolio

So this morning I bare for all the world to see my screw up with IRBT. Then I post about the Semis because… well, because they are a key cycle leader. Here are two portfolio members helping not only ease the pain after iRobot soiled itself (they can do that now), but helping give me a big up day (with more than a little help from gold and silver miners yet again).

I had originally planned for a trade in former darling XLNX to be a gap fill trade and it’s almost there. Now I have to decide whether or not I am some sort of Semi/5G die hard or simply a profit taker as originally planned.


NVDA is another former hype train rider, but it is much less spectacular than XLNX at this point. A key difference here is that NVDA is still in a downtrend while XLNX is not.


So which one do I take profit in, the up trender? The down trender? Neither? Both? I know one thing I am not selling at this time and that is Robbie the Robot, because I don’t feel even the slightest need to sell due to the wonders of a portfolio (including significant cash levels) that I try to keep in harmony with the macro backdrop at all times.
