    Time to ring the register tmrrow: AAPL up 18% since I bought it, NICK up 21% and SPY up 5%. Can I get rich by selling too early?

    • Skull & Bones: Better hurry before the gap down tomorrow. Don't get trampled at the exits.

    • The Last Boomer: we are due for some mild pullback. 3-5% maximum. I could be wrong but I still prefer to sell some stocks that did well for me.

    • TruffelPig: AAPL is on its way up, not down. I would not sell 1 share of my AAPL stock - and I am up a lot (bought at 320)

    • TruffelPig: sold at 400 - bought at 370 - holding

    • The Last Boomer: Evry time AAPL rises 20-30%, it rests for a while or pulls back a bit. Long term, it is UP but short term, it may take a breather.

    • Windsun33: You can never go broker taking profits. I have sold out nearly all of my stocks with any green at all. Doing a lot of repositioning

    • TruffelPig: ...but you can severely limit your profits.....AAPL may not go down this time, the quarter was just too good.

    • rrose39: If you don't need the cash I'd stay with it. It's going to be an interesting month.

    • TruffelPig: I don't want to say it - but I said so. Wrong time to sell AAPL. You won't get back in at the price you sold.

    • The Last Boomer: I don't feel sorry for a moment. I bought with the proceeds CJES that jumped 10% and now GSFVF that jumped 5% in 3 hours since I bought it.
