I'm a new member and retiring in about 18 months. I have a substantial 403b Account and additional investments of about $400k. I have been attracted by Apple for some time. Does it make sense to invest about $10k in Apple common given the fact that the share price has increased to a very high level now?

AAPL is the second largest company by market capitalization after Exxon. It makes up about 2.7% of the S&P 500.

If you have $400,000 in an index fund, you probably already own $10,000 worth of AAPL.
