"We sold our Apple a few days after they showed the new iPhones," he said. "We just didn't think they were compelling enough."
Apple announced its new flagship iPhone 5s, along with a lower-cost iPhone 5c, on Sept. 10, to mixed reviews.
On CNBC's "Fast Money," Kacher said that the phone failed to impress, especially when compared to smartphones that run Google's Android operating system, such as those from Samsung and other manufacturers.
"Particularly, there's not a large-screen iPhone that's really there to compete with the Galaxy or the Note," he said. "We'd like to see a 5½-inch screen larger phone. And the Apple 5c, the more affordable phone, is 20 percent less than the more expensive one on a non-subsidized basis. This is just not cheap enough to be interesting in Asia and other emerging markets."
Kacher said that he had completely liquidated his Apple stock.

Asked whether he believed that Apple's iPhone remained a powerful brand, Kacher said, "They may be strong … but there's no question Android is winning globally. And it's definitely winning in Asia. There's no question about it.
