$50k in Apple on 10/11/03 worth 1 million today

In the last 4 years, shares in Apple have gone 2273%.


This also means that a 25k thousand investment would be worth $500 thousand, a $12,500 investment would be worth 250k, and a small $6250 investment would be worth $250 thousand. If you had just kept your car 4 more years and made this investment instead!

Wow, if only I had money to invest back then. Even a thousand bucks would have giving you 20 grand to play with! A million would have made you a millionaire 20 times over!

But then again, think if that Apple stock was Google's?

A note about Google stock:

1) You had to be on a pre approved list to buy Google stock at IPO

2) You had to make an initial 3 month minimum investment of $100,000 or more.

3) Almost NO ONE who was an initial investor outside the company is still an investor. Once the stock hit 300 most every one of the initial investors sold.

4) If you would have purchased in the last year - you would only have 200 shares, although you would be $40 thousand richer.
