Despite the Washington debacle most major indices moved ahead in October. Most of you will be seeing good gains in your portfolio so the challenge now is to watch out for your investments going into the "bad value" area where you would not consider buying them if you did not already own them. One of the great failings of private investors is that they either get out of an investment too early "grab the profits" or hold on to an investment for too long and watch the profits slide away. This is why you have your value metrics so that you can monitor your holdings and sell those that have risen into areas where they no longer represent the underlying value of the company. It is a continuous rotation of your portfolio from undervalued stocks to overvalued stocks and back again and all the while your account gets larger.
