Apart from BAT and REITS, do we have other quarterly paying dividend stocks on the JSE?

Evergrande just announced they'll be defaulting. Big pain on Monday.

If Evergrand collapse, I am sure it will bring China's economy close to collapse too. Bad days ahead for anything China or companies with ties or related to China.

AMD was a rocket the past month! Not sure how much higher it still will go in coming months, but I think I made quite a nice profit on it and sold out on Friday.

1. Look at your budget. If the expenses are more than the income, it's time to sell something.

2. Look at your GF. If she’s let herself go, it's time to sell so that you have money to go find a prettier girl.
My income is more than expenses

Don't have a GF at the moment

Seriously though at what point do you normally sell your stock. I always see people saying it will go up more or its time to sell. What indicators are used.

I answered flippantly because it's an open question. Why did you buy it, how much risk do you want, do you need money, what do you want your portfolio to look like, can you make more money elsewhere? Only you know the answers, so only you know if you should sell.
