I bought a Tacoma instead.

Had bought quite a few shares of Apple at $66 a share, sold it at $99, thought I did ok. That was just before it skyrocketed to $400. To top it off, I sold it one of two days before it's 1 year period and had to pay higher tax on it. My wife still is mad at me about that. Kramer made me do it!
