    • losbronces: Wouldn't that be the same as "Hold"? Don't buy it now, but don't sell it if already owned?

    • Bill Maurer: Yes, but there are several people in both my article and other PM articles that keep saying I am recommended investors "Sell" Philip Morris.

    • losbronces: Okay, that makes sense. I have noticed more aggressive replies to articles lately by folks defending their positions.

    • techwonk: Bill, it may be your readers are skimming the article and only really reading the closing summary. Maybe be a little less subtle at the end.

    • techwonk: Also some investors read "overvalued" as a synonym for "sell." Not sure your article presents an argument why Hold&Add is good strategy

    • Bill Maurer: Well, the PM history is to wait for the pullbacks. My articles over the past year to 18 months have shown that in great detail.
