While I was traveling last week, I received an email that made me think long and hard about one of the more difficult tasks for an investor: selling. Because this reader's email asked about a couple of Bottom of the Barrel stocks, I figured it was time to think about the process of deciding when to sell your small-caps.Compared with deciding when to buy, knowing when to sell is a chore. Hundreds of theories exist about when to sell, and all of them are right and wrong, depending on your investing philosophy and risk tolerance.
