Stanley (Value Invest Asia): All of us here do not sell much. But how I would think of selling is to sell not because the stock has changed, but rather sell when you think that the thesis for your investment has changed.

DCA is for buying. I rarely hear anyone DCA to sell.

Usually for investing purposes, as long as there's no huge change in the company, you should just hold on cus it will increase overtime. Unless their foundation starts having problems etc. (E.g. hyflux) Thats why its important to DYODD and research deeply before going into the particular stock. Afterwards just monitor its quarterly report to make sure it stays on track.

Back to the question, if you realised the stock has no growth potential and want to exit, just make sure that the total returns is more than the cost then should be fine (profit instead of loss)
