Got in Apple at $99 1-2 years ago, rode it up $132, never sold, still holding but I sold some of my position around $106 recently to buy another stock.
I say hold, Iphone 7 coming out, stock is already trading at a discount, they have a TON of cash on hand.

Gilead I got in at $103 a while ago, so down 20% right now but it's one of my smaller positions. Gilead has a lot of cash and they are itching to make an acquisition. Investor's are worried about growth with Gilead, trading at a p/e of only 7.. so a large acquisition could quickly change the sentiment.

As do I, PE is 7 so most concerns are already baked into the price. They have a ton of cash and free cash flow to make acquisitions to boost growth.
Just hold and ignore short term noise.

While I am also down on AAPL and GILD (as well as others), both of these positions are long term holds and I remain confident in both of them looking forward in years to come.
It is always important to monitor and consistently conduct due diligence and long term outlook (imho) appears fine.

Both of them are also good value plays right now and should be near their floor. That's not to say the stock can't go down 20% from here -- but it's not going down 90%. They're solid companies that make a ton of cash so if you're holding right now I think it'd be crazy to get out now.

Not when you bought GILD at 48 and sold most of it at 110. [/brag]

I'm holding onto a few (dropping) shares because I think they're a good long play still. Might reinvest some more. We shall see.

Both cheap mega-caps lol. I own a bit of each, feel better that I own more AMZN than either of those. Market seems to love Bezos lately.

Sell January 2018 50 puts, buy January 2018 150 calls. Wait. Profit.

GILD. So awful. HCV isn't like cancer I guess when it comes to putting up blockbuster numbers. Luckily I own way more BMY.

AAPL managed to stink less than the street's expectations, yay lol, it still continues to prove it has no growth and is deserving of its low P/E ratio

There's plenty of accumulation on AAPL even thought it's avg trading volume is nothing like it was in the past. As they say, the air gets pretty thin at the top.

With the Nasdaq making a new high, the expectation is AAPL will follow as it's a laggard.

Screw both and buy TWTR. Now there's your short squeeze honey pot. Wink

Yes, no, maybe. So what?

Of course fundamentals matter. A stout spec always need someone to trade against. Big Grin

TWTR still making the shorts sweat. Just needs a $19.37 weekly close.
