I would say you have a 3.4 bagger. The stock is up 3.4x. That's not your profit, as you imply.

What's the stock?

When I was a junior in college, I put my then net worth into Boston Beer Group around $9-10. It's $150. I'd call it a 15 bagger. And I'm on the hunt every day for another. Too bad I sold when it doubled.

Less than 2 years ago I put 50% of my then net worth into MSG at $22. It's now $60. I sold when it was up a relatively small amount in a few weeks. That's a 2.66 bagger.

There's been a trend here.

I haven't sold any BRK as I expect IV is arguably $200,000/A and growing.
