I sold 100 apple shares after riding them up to $93, selling them at $87/share. Up until that time, Apple had been fairly flat for years. I got in at $46/share and thought the absolute peak had been reached on a fluke and decided to take my profit! Should've just taken my investment amount and at least left the rest. So, the rest is history. iPhone came next and iPad etc. If only I had just hung onto those shares!
