A high school friends Dad ran a stock brokerage. He had us wallpaper his bathroom with about a trillion Marks worth of Weimar Republic bonds. As a reminder…

OK, I'll do the math.
500 shares in Oct 1994
becomes 1,000 shares in June 2000 after 2 for 1 split
becomes 2,000 shares in Feb 2005 after 2 for 1 split
becomes 14,000 shares in June 2014 after 7 for 1 split
becomes 56,000 shares in Aug 2020 after 4 for 1 split

At $170/share today that $9,520,000.00

I sold the last of my APPL around 2019, I think. If I had held onto it, I would be a lot better off than I am now. However, I had a good run with it because I started buying early and realized a lot of appreciation before then. I was an early adopter and am proud that I invested in APPL when it was young, because I used Apple products and realized how superior they were to the competition at the time.

Took me a minute to figure out what that was.

At first I assumed that you paid $20k for a Mac (not unheard of). Then I saw the "500" and thought you bought a lot of Macs (for a school or something). But then they were way too cheap!

I too had to look at it a bit to figure it out. Glad it wasn’t just me. smiling smiley

Ok, that’s just mean!

LOL!






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

When I graduated college I had around $4000 for relocation expenses, which was a fortune for a new college grad in 1998. I contemplated buying AAPL, but instead purchased an iMac, printer, scanner, and a SuperDisk drive, I think it all came to around $3500. I plugged that into the link I provided above. From 7/1/98, $3500 of AAPL would be worth $3.5million...ouch.

Me, too. About 2 minutes trying to process that.

But, also allow me to say: Holy Farck.

Another telling thing is “California’s first discount broker“ charged $48 in commission for the transaction.
Now you can get trades for a couple of dollars.
