Well, I made the decision to make the trade in my trading account on my T shares. I sold 988 shares at $34.65. I know, I know, the stock ran up. However, my strategy called for a 1% gain or more, so when it got close, I went with it. Believe me, there will always be another stock to buy and sell. I am currently looking at NOV or I might possibly get about 1500 shares of GE to capture the dividend in a few weeks. Lots of opportunity to make money.
Either way, I collected the dividend and got my percentage increase on the sale of T. I still own all my other shares, but the trading account are there to trade, so I am going to do it and not think twice about it.
