Up 11% this morning.
Nice!! at the beginning of the month it was 44.68 - 70.31 as of today

Now when to sell or do I buy more - crazy - I hate it

I would never make it as a stock picker -
When you have a big winner like that, it's best to look at your position like a trend follower. You want to use some form of a trailing stop. An easy way is to look at the 20 day moving average. The next time the stock goes down to it's 20 day moving average, buy. If it bounces off of it, you hold until the next test. When/if the stock closes below the 20 day moving average (I would probably give it about a 1-2% buffer below the 20 day SMA before you sell to avoid whipsaw), sell it all. Until it closes below the 20 day SMA, let 'er ride.

Dividends for COF came in yesterday.
”My option is to displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the National Guard -- as the governor, in a state of emergency -- and basically take over the mayor's job," Cuomo said. He quickly added that, "I don't think we are at that point,"

.40 a share - looks like the same dividend payout since 2015

I always struggle with price appreciation versus dividend yield

The amateur stock picker in me would rather just see the stock ticker go up

Yeah, it's not a great dividend raiser, especially for a bank.
