In today's #AskCramer video, we're tackling a question that is often asked.

"When should one buy or sell the stocks in your portfolio?"  That question came up during Jim Cramer's recent Action Alerts Plus members-only call.

Our viewer, who had been buying Google GA for years, asked "... why should i sell shares to buy something I'm less enthusiastic about.."

"I don't like again, this false dichotomy. I want to sell that, maybe buy something that you think is inferior or superior," Cramer said. "If you're short of cash and you want to buy another stock, you can feel free to sell any stock. "
