Hi Churchy,

If you're taking a victory lap, good for you. I haven't heard of many investors with a 350-bagger. I had never looked back 30 years on AMAT's stock performance. Doing so now, I see it is up about 35,000% since November of 1986, against +1900% for the NASDAQ. If you bought Applied back in the 1980s I'd like to hear why you picked the company as an investment, if you've continued to buy since then, etc.
