Yes I did, but that was also in the heyday of the market when you had individual stocks sometimes doubled in one trading day. I'll manage you're money if you'd like, but I'm guessing my dumb luck won't catch lightening in a bottle again. I guess it worked out well that I graduated in 2000, because I ended up selling at the top, through no financial insight of my own.
Roughly half of my investment was in the Putnam Voyager mutual fund (PVOYX
) which had a pretty good run from '91 through 2000. I don't remember if it was Juniper, but there was another stock that I was invested in that also doubled during that time.
I know, at least from your past comments, that you don't really believe people when they say the outperformed the market, but I actually did. Not exactly 300% gain through pure stock increases, thanks to dividend reinvestment and I probably added another $500 myself, but I was really fortunate to have a good investment adviser at Edward Jones and a little luck in the midst of a stock market bubble.
