Apple surged Friday after Buffet announced his Berkshire Hathaway bought 75 million shares in the first quarter. The stock closed at $183.83, a record high, and is now roughly $20 per share short of a $1 trillion market cap.

"The game's not over. We're going to keep testing. This is kind of like someone who's had a minor heart attack and they want to know, 'how strong do I feel. Can I make it to the end of the block or after that?'" Cashin said.
"The market is basically taking its own pulse and its own temperature, testing these levels to see where they want to go," he added.
