“Never subsidize losers with winners”, says Jim Cramer. “Professionals and amateurs alike hate selling their dogs. They keep hoping, keep assuring that a sinking stock is wrong in its direction. They rationalize that the weakness or lack of interest they see,m will be fleeting and that people soon will recognize the value that the holder sees in the stock. That’s all well and good until you need money”, says Cramer.
