If I still had my Apple stocks

applmnyBack in October of 2000 I bought 66 shares of Apple stock at $23.50 per share.  It cost me $1551.  It seemed like a good idea at the time but after about six months I felt that Apple just wasn’t going anywhere.  They had such a tiny share of the desktop market and were too expensive for most consumers.  I didn’t feel like they had much of a future so I sold the stocks for $1626.   I made 71 dollars!

Unfortunately, today, Apple stock is worth $554 per share.  If I had kept them I could sell them today and have $36,564.   What a dumbass!
