    Imagine if you bought Apple stock when they first went public! :eek:



    Nobody knows what will happen next. Only predictions can come, and half the time they're wrong. That's why it's called an investment: it could go either way. You could come up strong, or lose out big time.

    That movie came out in 1994.

    When I worked as an Apple Certified Repair Tech (years before :apple: Stores existed), my company gave us 50 shares of Apple stock (worth about $950 at the time) instead of Christmas Bonuses (cheap bastards :mad:).
    This was when everyone and their mothers considered :apple: stock certificates useful only to wipe your (_!_). I sold all but one stock to say I own part of :apple:. Apple was supposed be dead within a year. Then the second coming of Steve Jobs and the infamous deal with the M$ Devil... the rest we know.
    That's 15 grand pissed away. Oh well. At least I still have one :apple: stock.
