    I found the number (somewhat).

    Microsoft shares climb on Windows 2000 optimism



    Maybe their buybacks are effecting the valuation with my calculations but using Google Stocks — which I assume is accurate — the numbers and date I posted are the highest I can find.



    PS: AAPL is now down for the day. LOL

    But that would also be without the 2:1 stock split. That means MSFT had half the shares in 1999 with a peaked share price of $117.438.

    So the split was after this? I see. But anyway looks like we have to wait for the day a bit longer.

    Can't argue with the WSJ but they don't list how they came to these numbers. While my data looks to be incorrect I have shown my work (gold star for the day?) So what am I missing here? Is it stock buybacks that i'm not accounting for?

    Good question. I am puzzled too.



    You get a gold star, but matrix07 gets the cigar!

    I was just asking where you were the other day. There was another "big-letter poster" in a recent thread and it reminded me I hadn't seen you around lately.

    I'm too busy calculating how much my Apple stock's are worth. It's a great time to be an Apple shareholder.



    how about you

    Hi slapppy, it's always good to have you on board with some entertaining remarks.

    Don't write stuff like that. They know where you live. They know every dark secret if you have used google search in you life.

    (What the hell has happened to the laughing icon? Has it been turned off because of the trolls on this site?)



    I remember he made some racist comment about Koreans in the same oversized text. He must have received a warning for that and a ban for this one.



    Things that can get you banned on AI:
    • Calling someone a name

    • Calling an Apple fan a fan b*y

    • Replying to someone that calls an Apple fan a fan b*y

    • Making a racist comment

    BTW it's ok to say shit, fuck and

    Dang, man, step up your game! I was hoping for a comment on current events!



    "Apple ended the day $11.79 lower than it began. We finally reached the top of the hill. Sell your stock now; it'll only get worse from here!"



    Something like that. You know you're slipping when better (albeit satirical) 'anti-Apple rants' are written by Apple lovers.

    Which makes perfect sense; there's not much call for any of that. I was actually surprised at the most recent addition to that list, but I support it 100%. We ARE on an Apple site, after all.



    I just hope they don't start a new trend of trying to circumvent it by calling people "oscillating man-children".



    As for the swearing, it's my personal opinion that there's no place for that nonsense anywhere, but I accept that people do swear and the action in and of itself doesn't necessarily merit scolding. Casual swearing makes one look like a fool, and there aren't many places more casual (and therefore where swearing makes absolutely no sense) than a text-based Internet forum.

    Slappy's woken up!

    I worked at MSFT when it was at its web-bubble-peak and there were about 10 Billion shares outstanding. Made rule of thumb calculations pretty simple.
