RE: Today in History: Steve Jobs named Apple CEO, turns company around bigly.

in #history2 years ago

I am not an Apple fanboy, but I can appreciate what they do. When I used to use their products a lot more than I do now, I was really happy with some of the innovations they were coming out with. When OSX first came on the market, it was a total game changer like a lot of their other products. I think they are overpriced, but at this point I don't really care because it helps my stock and everything else is overpriced too. My biggest regret with Apple is the fact that I didn't buy some of the stock when I was working at Radio Shack and it was really cheap. Instead I put all of my money into Radio Shack stock and that ended up being worth nothing!

Sort:  

LOL on the Radio Shack stock... that's a real shame. Do any of those stores exist still or are they completely gone?

I think there are still some franchise stores out there but I don't know where they get their product. All of the corporate stores are shuttered. Their online store still seems to be up and running. The stock for Radio Shack was around $44 to $42 while I worked there with I think one split taking place. By the time I was done I had about 56 shares. During the same time frame, it looks like the cost of Apple stock was between $.75 and $2.00. That would have given me about 1600 shares of Apple. Figure they had a couple of splits (one of them being 7 to 1) I would have about 22,400 shares today equaling about 4.5 million dollars. I need to go cry now...

damn... well, you know what they say about hindsight. That's a harsh one though.
