Thats awesome congrats. But you should be taking some off the table slowly on the way up. Why sell all at $800? What if it goes to $1,000? What if it never hits $800? No one ever got hurt taking a profit. I tend to be more conservative and think of it this way...if I sold some now with a large profit and then shares went up a lot I would be upset but oh well, I still profited. But if I hung on and shares plummeted I would be irate and kick myself.

Im a long time AAPL shareholder too (though not nearly as many shares as you!). Try not to get greedy because as they say...hogs get slaughtered.
