Submission + - If you’d bought 100 shares of MSFT 25 years (networkworld.com)

netbuzz writes: "Sunday marks the 25th anniversary of Microsoft’s initial public stock offering. While the undertaking was a spectacular success for the company from a financial standpoint and made him fabulously wealthy, then-30-year-old Bill Gates would just as soon have continued to go about his business in private, he told a reporter at the time. If on that day you had bought 100 shares at the offer price of $21 apiece and held on to them for the ensuing quarter of a century, you’d have 28,800 shares today, thanks to nine stock splits."
