Three years ago, the Motley Fool's Brian Stoffel decided to put a large chunk of his own retirement money behind shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL).  He vowed to hold shares for three years and then reevaluate if they were still worth holding.

Since then it's been a roller-coaster ride, with shares more than doubling in the first year, only to endure a 40% fall over the months that followed.  Of course, the company also lost its founder and CEO, Steve Jobs. Since Jobs' untimely death, questions have revolved around the Cupertino company's ability to continue innovating and producing products that people never knew they really needed until they tried.

In the video below, Brian outlines the very general concerns he has about continuing to hold his shares of Apple, and what he plans on doing moving forward.
