[This is a backlog for a previous trading transaction. It may not fully represent my thinking at the time of the trading.]
I sold 50 shares of EBAY @ $51.25 each today.
My EBAY position has jumped 48% since my purchase on March 13 (ARR = 1,823%). I decide to cash some positions today and celebrate my first success in the stock market. I become to feel EBAY is somewhat overvalued now.
As of today, my initial proceeds of ~$6,800 from stock option exercise has turned into over $7,000 now. Though only a small gain, it's really satisfying considering the general market behaves much worse during the same period.
