Did you miss something VERY BIG ??
Searching for an elephant in a room , and missed to find it !!!
Apple reaching 1 trillion market capital this week , I commonly heard from many growings buds, pundits that did we miss something to invest early on ?
Apple is just one of the tiny mustard in investment , there were many gargantuan returns were produced by many stocks. Apple did not went in straight uphill for past 15 years , i have seen apple stock dropping more than 15% in a intra day trades.
Did some backtesting to see, is any other known stocks outperformed Apple ..
Say in year 2009 ( almost 9 years ago ) , invested $25K upfront and every week invest $100
The total amount invested in 9 years $69,700
If this $69,700 invested in some of the popularly known stocks , below are the returns compared to Apple.
Apple – $472K ( 32% return annual return)
Netflix – 1.79 Million ( 54% annual return) ( yes in 9 years Millionaire )
Regeneron Pharmaceuticals-$790K (40% annual return )
Priceline -$770K ( 39% annual return)
Amazon – $800K( 40% annual return )
I know , I know – 9 years is big horizon , busy with million other things and missing to be millionaire. How about a 5 years
Invested $25K upfront and every week invest $100
The total amount invested in 5 years $44,600
Apple – $93K ( 25% annual returns )
Netflix – $207K ( 58% annual returns )
Amazon – $168K ( 50% annual returns )
Adobe – $125K ( 38% annual returns )
