    The time to buy AAPL was in the $450 price range and the time to sell it is now. I had purchased it at ~$450 because I love the ecosystem and the products, they had a tremendous amount of cash on hand, they had yet to create the larger phones which will be a big hit, and they had yet to be carried on China Mobile.

    However, I sold at ~$600 (25% - 33% profit is a general selling band for me) because each of these stories have basically been baked into the share price. For example the cash is being used to buy shares. China Mobile now carries the iPhone, the bigger screens have been known about for the last 6 months or so.

    Other reasons to sell now are that phone companies are moving away from subsidies in favor of lower cost plans so what incentive do I have to give my toddler my 5 and buy the 6? He already has my iPad 2 since I went to the iPad Air. When I moved from the 3G to the 5 at least I got much better performance via LTE.

    Good luck.

    Corporations are merely profit seeking entities and will adjust themselves to profit from whatever set of circumstances they find themselves in. With a global marketplace and technology enabling higher productivity US workers will have to seek a way to make them competitive with their peers across the globe. Since the US only gets about 10% of revenue from corporate income tax. I believe we should just scrap the income tax from any company that has 90% of its global white collar jobs in US. While workers would likely have to pay higher taxes to make up for the difference, we would at least have more certainty that we'll be employed going forward. This would also encourage companies to bring foreign profits back to the US economy through investments or distributions. It would probably also increase salaries as companies move to the U.S. and competition for workers increases.
