Am I being hoggish, holding on to Goodyear Tire (GT) - Get Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Report after it's nearly doubled? -- Tom from Ohio

James J. Cramer:

First of all, nice trade! In general, the prudent way to approach a situation like this is to sell half of one's position, which would result in essentially playing with the house's money. In Goodyear's case, the near-term upside could be limited around $20 a share, so I'd consider exiting the position entirely.
