On CNBC's "Trading Nation," Mark Tepper of Strategic Wealth Partners said that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is a must-own stock.

You have to have it in your portfolio because it's nearly 7% of the S&P 500 and if you don't own it to some extent, you're on the risk of severely underperforming the benchmark, explained Tepper. To manage the risk, he is advising his clients to trim the position as the stock goes up.
