If you would of bought $100 of AAPL stock in beginning of 1987 it would be worth over $750,000. (Assuming you reinvested all the dividends.)
That same $100, if invested in gold at the time, would be worth just over $400.
Food for thought this Sunday afternoon as I am doing some research on investment opportunities.
Oh yea, hindsight is also 20-20 ;)
