Original Post
My whale that got away was Sine Qua Non "Black and Blue"...was at Wally's and Manfred was pouring/tasting in back of store (free too!)...I tried it, and liked it, but thought the $35 price tag was too high!

And there were about a dozen 6 packs OWC next to the tasting table Smile
The company I was working for in the 1990's was installing the massive amount of new wiring to a dot.com startup calling itself "Amazon". I had a chance to get in on the ground floor, but passed, as 1) I had no extra $ to invest, and 2) many of the Seattle startups at that time were nothing more than halfbaked, wishful ideas run by overindulged children.


I did pick up a lot of good wine though, at fire-sale prices from those same children when the dot.com bubble burst.

Google never traded at $5 a share...went public via dutch auction at $95 ($47.50 post split).

And Apple hasn't traded under $5 for at least 20 years...when you see sub $5 numbers, it is due to stock splits.

Better investments than all of those was Bitcoin...8 years ago you could pick up a bitcoin for pennies...it's now just under $3000!!!

If you google bitcoin with the year 2010, 2011, you'll see reporters buying it and spending it on stuff like Pizza - turns out that slice ended up "costing" $50000...

I have a client who bought Apple in May 2004...bought 500 shares at around $27/share.
He now owns 7000 shares, as it split 2/1 in 2006 I think, and then 7-1 a couple years back.

When looking at historical stock charts/prices, they always adjust for splits...companies like Microsoft, Walmart and Oracle NEVER traded for 15 cents a share!

Multiply $5.15 by 14 and you get around $70, which is what it traded at back in 2005.
