50 years is a lot longer in markets than in music
50 years ago today the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band
While you enjoy that, ponder this:
- Gold traded at $26/oz (+3555%)
- USD/JPY traded at 357 (-69.8%)
- Shares of GE, adjusted for splits and inflation traded at 18-cents. Today $27.80 (+154x)
So 50 years ago you could have bought a Sgt. Pepper's for $1 or a few shares of GE and turned them into $154.
I'd say Sgt. Pepper's was the better investment.
