NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- As investors, it's somewhat natural to want to periodically revisit the companies you've given up on and sold. Those of us who are of the "value" persuasion tend to hold onto positions longer than others, as it can take years for a thesis to play out.When I give up on a name, it's usually not a quick decision, but since I've invested so much time, I may continue to follow companies long after I've sold. That can be painful, especially when you were too hasty in selling, but you can also learn a great deal.
