I don't, and never had any Apple shares, but everyone I worked with back in the early 90's in the IT field that did...dumped their shares either when Jobs was diagnosed, or after he punched out...because they knew what was to come.
Apple shares are down, iPhone 5 sales are dismal (Apple admitted this) and their products are just simply built worse than they used to be.
Apple stock hot an all time high, iphone 5 sold more phones than any other product launch ever, and everyone says the macbook pro retina is the best computer they've ever used.
