Going into Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL ) shareholder meeting today, investors were optimistic that the company would make an announcement regarding how it would begin distributing some of the cash on its balance sheet. This anticipation had shares up yesterday, and the lack of an announcement saw them lose yesterday's gains. In this video, Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker tells investors that with a company like Apple, you must be patient. This is a long-term investment thesis, and while there will definitely be some short-term volatility based on rumors and speculation, Eric advises that you hold strong, as this company will almost certainly be announcing some kind of plan to return capital to shareholders in the near future.

Eric is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
