I am thinking of dumping the ABBV I just got.  Overall Abbott Labs has been a poor growth performer for me but has paid a relatively good dividend.  But going forward I am concerned about ABBV's loss of patents coming up in 2016 and the difficulty it may have in replacing a single patent drug that is responsible for about half its revenue.  Overall this company has not been a good enough performer for me to feel it is worth taking that risk.  I am inclined to keep ABT but not sure of that either.  Assuming I do sell and taking into account cash on hand that I have I will have about $100,000 in my retirement portfolio to reinvest and will be looking for good purchases. 

 I admit I never really know when to sell and so I almost never do but ABBV is not looking good to me.  On the other hand what do I buy right now?
