I sold 95% of these share at 448 with the balance being nearly paid for via the profits. I plan to use this account to trade around my AAPL position held in my other accounts. If AAPL drops under 430 I'll look to buying it back for another trade assuming I still have cash on hand.
I sold puts against it today in IRA #4 and have orders to buy the stock in two other accounts as well as selling more puts in another. I believe there's a good chance the stock continues its trend lower, perhaps the low 400s unless they change the structure of their share repurchase program-currently it only allows the purchase of shares that are being issued via employee stock options.
Share buybacks will be the key to any recovery in earning's growth for AAPL just like it has been for tobacco stocks.
