Stock Performance Guide
The purpose of this stock performance guide is to represent what the value of a stock would be worth if it was purchased at different times in the past. Over the long term, the stock market has proven to be a very good investment. Some of the stocks featured in the businesspage performance guide have grown to over $1,000,000 dollars off an original investment of $5,000 thirty years ago. By viewing a few stocks, it is easy to see how powerful time can be when accumulating wealth in the stock market.

The stock performance guide is intended for informational purposes only and should not be used as the basis of any investment decision. The guide assumes all dividends are reinvested to purchase more shares of stock. In addition, commissions and taxes have not been factored into the total accumulated value as these amounts would vary depending on the stock purchased and the person investing. The stock performance guide values have been calculated by businesspage and while these values are believed to be accurate, errors are possible. Any information contained in the stock performance guide is property of businesspage. Information in the guide can be used for personal use, but it can not be redistributed in any manner (part or in whole), without the written consent of businesspage.

The Stock Performance Guide is a work in progress. New stocks will be added periodically or for more historical returns please visit our Yearly Stock Returns Index.
