This is not a COULD OF, SHOULD OF, WOULD OF POST.. I do these posts to explain long term investing to help people with absolutely no education on investing.. So they can better understand Stock Splits, Dividend Income (if applicable) and stock market terminology.. So these posts are for High School students being brainwashed to learn Algebra & Geometry instead of learning about stocks.. These posts are for parents that want to understand stocks better to teach their children.. People are not going to invest if they don't understand the mechanics of how it works.. Ok.. Lets do the math on Harley.. Harley went public 1986 at $11 per share.. So $10,000 would afford about 909 shares of stock on that day ($10,000 / 11 = 909 SHARES).... Since 1986, Harley has done five 2-for-1 stock splits... A 2-for-1 stock split is when a company doubles the number of shares you own and cuts the price of the stock in half... So if you owned 200 shares of COMPANY ABC at $80 per share... After the 2-for-1 stock split you would own 400 shares and the price of the stock would be cut in half from $80 to $40.. Companies do stock splits to keep the price of the stock affordable... So this is how your original 909 shares would have multiplied after the stock splits .... 909 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 = 29,088 SHARES OF Harley ... So now in 2018, your original 909 shares of Harley, have multiplied to 29,088 shares because of all the stock splits.. Today Harley is at about $45 a share so your investment today would be worth $1,308,960.00 (29,088 SHARES X $45 PER SHARE). Harley pays a yearly Dividend of $1.48 per share so you would also receive a Dividend Check for $43,050 per year ($1.48 X 29,088 SHARES = $43,050 PER YEAR DIVIDEND CHECK)... You would be worth over 3 Million Dollars if you invested $25 -$50 per week into shares since 1986 instead of just investing 10K once..
