I bought almost $1000 of Apple stock back in 1997. I recently checked my Portfolio and after splitting... 4 times? and running up to current, it would now be worth ~$90,000

It would be, except I sold it in 2002 to help pay for my wedding. I got $1100 back. But hey, I don't have a crystal ball and >10% isn't a bad return.

Thats what I keep telling myself anyway.
