Throughout the trading week on Stockpickr Answers, investing professionals answer questions posed by members of the Stockpickr community.

The Street.com Ratings Financial Analyst Richard Widows answered questions on Wednesday.

Recently on TheStreet.com, Widows has discussed tech stocks such as IBM ( IBM) and Research In Motion ( RIMM) and whether Weyerhaeuser's ( WY) dividend is safe.

Here are some questions and comments from the Stockpickr community that Widows responded to on Wednesday.

  • I made a small bet, 200 shares of Illumina (ILMN), hoping that it would beat estimates. Well, it was close but missed the estimate. I've lost 5% so far, and I don't like the stock. It was just a gamble. Should I bite the bullet and sell, or wait?
