    The stock has done nothing the past two years. It is up less than 10%. It still isnt even at highs from Sept 2012 yet. I have other stocks Like VIPS that is up nearly 4000% in the past 2 years. Granted I would never park even a fraction of what I have in Apple in a speculative china play, but lots of my holdings have performed far better the past two years. Even my very low risk growth at a reasonable price stocks Sherwin Williams(SHW) and Henry Schein (HSIC) are both up 50% and 60% the past two years. Apple has been a dog the past two years for the long term holder. I added some in the High 300's/Low 400's, but considering the size of the position I already had it wasn't meaningful.

  • I have owned Apple over 10 years now. I went through a lot of pain watching it under perform the past couple years but I was looking for bigger things having been involved with the board of education. There has been a big movement to getting a school provided iPad into the hand of every student and the implementation has been underway and gaining traction. This will lead to a whole"Apple Generation" of kids that once become adults will want nothing but Apple centric work stations and equipment in the work place. This will eventually kill the PC. The growth potential is still huge for apple. On the other hand I like owning stocks that can be multi baggers over a few years. At the moment I am having a hard time even seeing Apple doubling from here let alone doing it several times. The dividend not huge on a percent basis is still large enough considering my position that I can live on that alone very comfortable. Then again if I sold the stock I'd probably have enough money for the next 30+ years. The question is, #1) Do I want to pay the capital gains on a sale of my stock and #2) Where else can I put that money and get stable growth as well as the Dividend. Then there is the issue of holding something new long enough that it becomes a long term capital gain liability vs a short term capital gain liability?

  • Things are starting to get crazy out there. It is starting to feel a lot like 1999.

    law of large numbers. Not likely you see apple double again anytime soon. That would be a 1.2 Trillion Market Cap if it did.

    At this point I certainly do not want to pay the capital gains tax and the Annual Dividend is more than I need to live on. I dont expect huge moves at this point, but for most of us a 1 point move is pretty substantial. I have been through both a 2:1 and a 7:1 split and most of the buy and hold investors like myself that got in on the introduction of the iPod are not in a hurry to sell.
