10 Year Challenge: Stock Returns

Sweeping across Facebook as the newest viral media campaign, the 10 year challenge has captured the attention of all audiences.

At Cyndx, we ask how would the 10 year challenge look in the eyes of the stock market.


If we had purchased $1,000 of Netflix, Apple, or Amazon’s stock in 2009, you would have:


193 shares of Netflix stock, now valued at $353 each ($68,183 total)

117 shares of Apple stock, now valued at $155.86 each ($18,250 total)

15.43 shares of Amazon stock, now valued at $1,693.22 ($26,133 total)
