Microsoft split adjusted price on 12/7/1987 was $0.22/share. After 31 years, today's price is $104.82. The CAGR is 22% which is extremely good for 31 years. If we paid 3 times of the price on 12/7/1987 for split adjusted $0.66/share, the CAGR will be 17.8% for 31 years which is also extremely good and should beat every mutual fund. The lesson here is pick a long term winner is most important even you pay a very high price.
