If you are looking long term, yes you did. I bought 5 years ago around $190. Right after it went down to around $130. Boy! That was nerve-wracking! I've more than doubled my money so it's hard to complain about an annual 20%ish ROI. I'm sure in 5 years, you'll be glad you did. When Apple became the largest company in the world, that's when things started to slide. When anything or anyone becomes #1 in anything, they become more of a target and right now it's hard to find analysts that not part of this bashing frenzy. It's just human nature. I'm not saying that Apple doesn't have some issues to work out but human nature is part of the mix, IMHO.
