  1. The “new normal” for AAPL is heading into the $450-500 range. The only thing that can stop it from happening is some general decline in stock market, cause by some external geopolitical event. Since the current new highs are happening while Steve Jobs is on his medical leave, it seems AAPL (the stock) has outgrown its long-term dependence on his day-to-day presence.

    “Also, as of the recent quarterly reports, MSFT is still making more profit than AAPL.”

    Just barely. BARELY! I have every expectation of AAPL’s fiscal Q2 or Q3 2011 passing them for good!

    When does a person sell their AAPL? When you’ve made $200 per share, $300, or how much? I thought of selling it when it doubled for me but that’s a while ago now. How long should you hold this stock?

    2011 = $422 is a no brainer! Add $100/yr

    iOS is the next mainstream computing platform standard and Apple owns practically all of the value chain. The technology and its ecosystem are still years ahead of the competition. In this case the sky may not be the limit.

    Hold on to your stock and enjoy watching it grow.

    I sold some when it crossed $300 the first time, a few months ago. I just wanted to have some funds available, in case there was a significant dip. I thought it might happen with the Steve Jobs medical leave news, but that drop was minor. A portion of my shares I will keep “forever.” The rest I am willing sell as needed.

    I think things look good for the next six months. Verizon iPhone goes on sale. iPad 2 gets released. New Macs for “back-to-school” shopping time. iPhone 5, along with a major iOS release. WWDC and Mac OS X Lion. A lot of headline grabbing news for Apple.

    But I think it is important to keep a portion total funds available as “cash,” in case there is a drop (or some other opportunity arises). This is especially true for me, because I’m not very “diversified” (AAPL by itself is a VERY large piece of the “pie”). A drop in AAPL (the stock) can happen for many reason unrelated to Apple (the company). However, I actually hope AAPL keeps going up without any significant dips; my “just in case” fund can just sit there.
