Yes it will! If you have the ability and guts to stick with it and think long term. In my case, my wife dragged me to their flagship store in NJ back in the early 90's. I saw that the store was so busy that the parking lot was jammed with customers.. So I thought that a good investment opportunity was at hand. Bought 200 shares. Four splits later had 1600 shares and today my $5K is $125K. Not bragging but want to point out that quality and time yields rewards. It will happen again!!!!!
