My situation is not much better. My dad purchased Microsoft stock at the IPO in 1986, then sold around 1988 because "they really weren't going anywhere." We can laugh about it now, a little.


Remind me to tell you the story about a study group partner in college that tried to convince me to take all of my student loan, scholarship, and grant money and purchase some put options on AOL/Time Warner when it was trading at $750 or so a share.

I bought a Tacoma instead.

He retired. At 23.
