    I'm holding onto my option purchased inherited Apple stock due to its sentimental value.

    All depends on what's the comfort zone and when a lucky stock becomes too much of your portfolio.

    We were lucky to have chosen AMZN as our primary lucky stock and jettisoned fully in 2018. It's climbed up nicely since then, but we were plenty happy on the ride up.

    I sold 1/3 of my apple stake in 1999 after a 100% run up over a 1.5 years.

    Lots of people doing the same thing. You folks should compare notes - looks like you're using the same strategy!

    Yes - that's the intrinsic benefit of periodic rebalancing over the same time period, year in and year out.
    And buying broad market index mutual funds instead of individual stocks.

I suppose that's why we're better off with index funds to avoid the ego led mistakes.

    I am still holding my 2008 Apple. No plans to sell. Not reinvesting dividends.

    Yes. The "hot stock" I lost 99% of my investment on several years ago. "It will bounce back" I said.

    I recently got another mailer about filling a claim to "protect my interests" for their bankruptcy filling.

    Didn't Warren Buffett say something to the effect, if it's not worth holding for 20 years it's not worth holding for a day?

    I wonder how many internet words were invented due to drunk typos.

    I saw that as well. I planed to sell them sometime in 2020 but once Buffet sold some I felt better about doing it now instead of waiting until later in the year
    Berkshire also bought some VOO and SPY. But like the equivalent of me investing the change found between the couch cushions.

    Hmmm, how did you know today was the day? Was it the China hit for that little bug? Fond memories are the result of profits. Pain and sorrow are associated with losses.

    Hint, those shares don’t love you back. Kind of silly to become attached. Those share got remarried in a millisecond. Adios!
