Although I did sell enough Netflix to cover my investment before its price dropped, it was because I believed that there were other options out there and that the competition was catching up, plus mgt was making some dumb decisions.

I have not done the same with Apple because and I don't intend to, because I still believe in the company and expect its price to soar in the future, rather than continuing to decline.

Since you've been with AAPL a long time, I'm guessing you didn't have to sell many shares to recover your investment, but I am hoping you won't be kicking yourself when the stock passes 700 again next year.
