Windows 7: What if you had bought Apple Stock Instead Of Products?

What if you had bought Apple Stock Instead Of Products?

Let's play a mind game.

Steve Jobs rejoined Apple November 1997. If we start counting from the date he rejoined, counting every new product released since that at the official price in USA, you would have spent today a total of $591,769.

Or, if you invested the $399 you spent on that first iPod, you'd now have $11,914.
Proves my point: No use to buy a Mac. Invest the money instead

Apple in this house????

Never.....................though i did buy a second hand Orange back in the day.

Some nice calcs, Kari. Imagine if everybody bought shares instead of the products. Shares wouldn't be worth 2 bob.

Investing is always a good idea....investing in the right thing, that's a bit harder to do.

Sure wish I could go back to the early 70's and know then what I know now - MS stock IPO'd for 23 cents a share......
