The day AAPL fell 50% in a single day.

My initial purchase of AAPL was about 1 or 2 weeks prior to this day so I remember it well. That was also one of my very first stock purchases so it was a bit of a punch in the gut to a new investor. Sure glad I didn't panic and sell, but man it would have been nice if I had made that purchase after the fall rather than before.
