I was 24 years old and thought the stores were great. It was my first stock. I bought 200 shares at .16 and forgot about it for a few years. I traveled and worked p/t. I sold it in 1986, after splitting approx 17 times. I was 35 and made over $100,000. Check out the history of one of the greatest companies and CEO's of all times. Les Wexner was to retail
what Steve Jobs is to technology. I guess I was pretty lucky with the 2
stocks I ever bought.
