re: Is it time to sell the profit on Apple? - Jag_Warrior on 7/8/20 at 4:36 pm
I'm not a good person to ask since I've owned my core AAPL position for almost 20 years. But along the way I've bought and sold AAPL shares outside of that position, as well as doing various option trades on it. If it constitutes more than 10% or so of your portfolio, you could always lighten up...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It's a good question. IMO, price targets are completely meaningless.
