but he would have 17 years of dividends
And had you invested $10,000 in PIR March 9, 2009 you could have sold it in May 2013 for 2.5 MILLION DOLLARS . and if the Dog hadn't stopped to #$%$ he would've caught the rabbit .
How about if a 50 year old invested in PFE in 1997? How much capital gain would he have?
There were two stock splits also (2 for one) and (3 for one) since then so the dividends alone would be over $17,680.00 in 17 years if you held 1,000 shares.
Let me jump in my time machine.
But STILL ZERO Capital Gain. Divy was far less 17 years ago.
1000 shares in AAPL in 1997 after 2:1,7:1 splits = Millionare
