Reasons for selling stock:

I would add 4. The stock appears to be overvalued and/or appears to have achieved its potential.

You are likely far less concerned about AAPL going from $700 to $400 in less than a year since you still have a purchase price of $8.

The person that bought at $600 likely felt differently.

Not all of us are lucky (or smart) enough to have gotten in for $8. :)
