I just take it out and buy nothing but apple stock. 40% "unrealized gains" so far. Is there anything actually wrong with doing this

i can only laugh when you tell me you just dump all your investment capital into one stock, and that you're sitting at 40% unrealized gains but gently caress it let it riiiiiide

e: if I'm doing my mental math right, that means you bought in at ~$60 which means you've just been sitting on it and accruing more stock for the last year and some months. At the very least sell it all off and wait for the price to come down before buying more because the chart doesn't look like it's going to stay that high for long between the double top forming and the way the market rejected the $100 price last time (shot right back down to $75 and that was when Apple was doing much better).


but maybe I'm just high it's possible

You did your mental math right. But if I do that it will probably go up even more. And tim is more friendly to the wallstreet people than steve.

Well at the very least don't fall into the trap of 'it's falling... but it'll go up again I'll hold on to it!' and let yourself get hosed. If it starts to dip, sell it off then wait for the upswing to start before buying up again.

it sounds like super obvious advice (and it is really) but you'd be surprised at the amount of people that hold on to a falling stock in the hopes that it will recover and lose a poo poo ton of money.

when you look at it objectively it's obvious, but when it's your money and your decisions and the emotions run high (especially greed and not wanting to have been 'wrong') it becomes cloudy.

it's also not as straightforward as 'oh it's falling' because it could dip slightly for no reason - but enough to make some flighty people sell and drive the price down more, and then you sell and it corrects upward and now you're like 'well gently caress I sold too early and missed the upswing.'
