Although I'm quite happy to take a profit given the opportunity, with a yield of around 3.6% I'm also happy to stay in for the long term.
Hmm, that was fortuitous timing. If I'd known it had moved up to over £48 today I might well have taken the quick profit on offer, but I didn't look at the price until this evening.
I expect it'll drift back a bit tomorrow, so the dilemma is whether or not to get a quick sale in the morning if the price holds or to accept the probable fall (which I wouldn't expect to be much below £47) and hang on for further rises.
I do see a significant amount of upside for NXT, but I'm increasingly nervous about the market generally, and as we've seen recently good companies can get taken down with the rest. Hence, my instinct at times like these is to trade rather than invest.
