What would your portfolio look like had you invested in some of today’s biggest companies a decade ago? Those companies may not have seemed promising ten year ago but have sure excelled beyond expectations. If you invested 1K in these companies 10 year ago this is what your investment would look like today. These numbers are based on the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) which is the rate of return required for investment to grow from beginning balance to ending balance, assuming profits were reinvested at the end of each year. For instance, say you had invested 1K into Netflix in 2008 then your current portfolio value based on a CAGR of 53.87% would be $74,394.38.
