Yes, I'm that old to remember.
The stock kept going almost straight up with minor corrections along the way.
There was always stories about how the competition was forming and the end was in sight,
It always had a huge short position, not unlike TSLA that has 1/3 of its shares short.
There was one huge correction that happened in its 3rd year out. The stock went from 325 to 125, and almost every one I knew sold in panic. The stock rebounded and went all the way to 400 where it split
It took many years before it settled down, and traded like most stocks.
I TRULY BELIEVE THAT TSLA WILL MIMIC XEROX AND EVEN IF BOUGHT AT THIS PRICE WILL MAKE PEOPLE WHO HANG ON FORTUNES.
