I been in Staples for 2 years. I
bought stock January 1998 during
the time it was
going to split and it acted like this then to.
at a 2 year chart of Staples under chart and you can
how it acted in January of 1998 it is very similar.
told me that he believes that Staples
will be the Walmart of the
bought more Staples today. I have faith in them.
have been the backbone of my portfolio. It is a quite
but very dependable.
I went fishing yesterday and missed the news.
Viax is hanging in there. IMHO I hope with Viax
getting on AOL and in the SPLS stores it could do BOTH
stocks some good. If someone didn't want to order VIAX
products off the web, they can check it out in the SPLS
stores. Speculation,yes but I hope it happens.
If post #1411 was correct on the splits and price
per share, I wish I would have bought back in 90. If
I would have bought 100 shares at $20 bucks back
then that $2000 investment today would be worth over
$46,843 which is a return of 2342%. I hope the trend
Here is the Math:
100 shares X 1.5
= 150 SHARES
150 """"" X 1.5 = 225 SHARES
""""" X 1.5 = 337.5 SHARES
337.5 X 1.5 = 506.25
506.25 X 1.5 = 759.375 SHARES
759.375 X 1.5 =
THOSE ARE THE 6 SPLITS AND NOW THOSE
1139.0625 SHARES ARE WORTH 41.125 TODAY SO THE TOTAL WOULD
BE $46843.94 WOW
the less premium, it's primarily because a $10
move on MSFT is a relatively low % move, but a $10
move for SPLS is a double digit % move.
takes CBOE a few days to get the options straightnened
out after a split, longer for a 3/2 split. but I
noticed fidelity had it straightened out right away, so
possibly checking your home brokerage site is more
Well I tried to do too much in my head.. My share
counts went 100,150,175,262,393,589 but the 175 should
have been 225. Oh well, I see some others came up with
the correct answer. No wonder I have a B- in math :-(
