I bought 400 shares back in about '97. With spits I had 1600 shares. Idiot financial advisor talked me into selling a bulk of my position since it grew to over 30 or 40% of my IRA - moron that I am I sold much of my stock
Since then I've bought back in @ about 78, 79, 80, 120, 140 and 170. It will be a much tougher sell by a financial analyst to get me to sell my AAPL next time. idiots
I've long since learned not to trust the advice of a financial advisor or stock broker. There is ultimately one person responsible for the success or failure of your investments, and it ain't them.
