Stocks A / Apple

Since 2002 my portfolio has been mostly AAPL. This year I tried something different. I switched out most of my AAPL for TSLA. Given Apple's excellent growth this year that seems rather ill-timed, but it has worked out very well for me.

I ended the year with just my AAPL holdings being responsible for 37.4% growth in my entire portfolio. About 55% of that growth is from AAPL stock appreciation and dividends; the other 45% is from selling put options. In all, a great year for Apple investors, from which I profited handsomely.

The non-Apple part of my portfolio did really well too, enough so that my Apple holdings were in third place for gains (behind TSLA and NVDA). What a year! I've never seen one like it before and I never expect to see one like it again.
