By way of background I would describe myself as a long term value investor but I like dividends and if I think a company is going places (eg Fevertree) I will diverge from my normal rules. I reinvest all divis.

I have three winners that I’ve held for three years or so - GVC, PPHE and FEVR. I think they will continue to do well. So my question is do I:

a) tuck them in the bottom drawer and watch them hopefully grow.
b) top slice say 20% annually
c) only sell some or all if I’m drawn to something better

There are a lot of posts on stop losses (I don’t use stop losses) but not so much on developing rules for banking profits.

All thoughts welcome!
