i jumped out in August with AAPL in the $170s. i felt horrible because i was just sure it was going to turn around and head back up but i needed the money for Europe. i would have now been sitting on less than 1/2 my money and instead have wonderful memories to last a lifetime. and the money that is left over bought a new Civic hybrid (which amounted to what i would have lost had i just left it all in AAPL). we both had very lucky timing.
