Apple Shares Top $300 For The First Time
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Today, shares of Apple exceeded $300 per share for the first time in company history. In recent months, the surge in Apple stock has ignited tech stocks overall as the market continues to roar back from an economic downturn that - despite being far from over - has recovered substantially from the depths of the Dow in Spring 2009.
During the May 2010 "flash crash" when stocks plummeted some 1000 points in a matter of minutes, shares of Apple briefly traded $200. Now trading above $300, many investors who bought the year's low in Apple stock are now sitting pretty. Even investors who came late to the party are still enjoying a substantial return on profit, as shares of Apple have risen better than 25% just since late summer.
According to Market Watch, Apple’s stock is up more than 42%, on the year "mostly due to what analysts see as the potential for growth from the iPad and the iPhone 4 handset." And as more and more financial institutions (like Barclays, which MMi covered this week) forecast Apple stock to reach close to or above $400 per share, many investors are taking a fresh look at today's all-time high and evaluating the stock to still be relatively "cheap."

...and now for my sob story:
In approximately February of 2007 I bought 3 shares of AAPL at $95. I was new and interested in the stock market but didn't want to go all crazy so I just tried with those $300. The stock dropped to $90 per share a few days later and I spooked and sold it. After that I found out my company was heading south (mortgage industry) so I couldn't afford to frivolously play the stock market. Had I kept it I would've had a 300% ROI...oh well, c'est la vie.

And to think the stock was less than 20 bucks in the 90's, ready to go under. Lazarus with a bionic heart or what?

1. He takes a $1 salary not out of the goodness of his heart. He takes it because he then does not have to pay out taxes on a big CEO salary.
2. He owns over five million shares of Apple stock based on that article. The guy has a potential fortune in stock market value.
3. He also owns almost half of all Disney stock.
4. The stock is now worth over $300 a share. From that article the stock was around $91 a share. Which means Steve still has those shares and they are worth $209 more than when that article was posted in Jan of 2009.
So I ask again, what was the point of your post?"To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare
