Most everything else is noise until Apple reports. And, even after we get holiday quarter results, there's no telling what the stock will do. I realize that's unsettling, but, at the end of the day, if you're in the stock, all you can reasonably do is what's best for you and your family. Hopefully, putting it that way brings some clarity to thought.
Don't panic. You have no control over what's happening out there. It's the Wild West. You have to make decisions based on your circumstances, but, if it was me making the call, I would day/swing trade AAPL using tight stops (like I did in October 2012), but not hold a substantial position as an investment.
Let the dust settle after earnings and go from there. If hell stops breaking loose, think about getting back in. You'll have time; when this train really takes off, it makes several stops along the way to pick up new shareholders or investors scaling into a position. And if it doesn't, no harm and no foul.
