Not always Gregg. A few years ago I had dumped a certain stock that varied from $60-80 a share at $105. The next day it went down and I was the smartest man around. Lol Well...3 years later it hovers around 300 a share, and I dumped six figures worth.

I had to go do some research on Starbucks (SBUX) to see what its long term price had done since I had my big flip and gain of $500


If you account for splits - the 1992 price per share would be .45 (forty five cents) per share - its current price is almost 16,000 % gain since inception (IPO)


So - I had 1000 shares at @ total cost of $14,000 (IIRC) - Xs 16,000%

Just quickly I think that would be worth about 2.2 MILLION today

No regrets fellas... It's really easy to make decisions looking backwards.

Saw a Warren Buffet quote on IG today, "the rear view mirror in business is much cleaner than the windshield"

Yet if we spend too much time looking back, we'll trip on what's ahead....

I spent too many years on the only if's.... I can honestly say I have not one regret and I've done some really stupid stuff. After all, mistakes are some of the best experience. I do think you need to be willing to learn and change your ways in the process.

I know I'm not supposed to do this, but it was so glaring I had to check. My investment accounts are up 5% since Jan 1 2019...

This last week has been crazy green for me....
