Nerd Cred: ROI of X-Men Geekiness Circa 1980

May 6th, 2014 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Did someone say “Days of Future Past”? The newest X-Men movie follows a story arc that I followed closely during the Reagan administration.

Confident that this was an enduring story line that would stand apart as a classic, I started buying multiple issues way back when. See my three copies below. A 50 cent investment per issue now has a market value of $150.00. That calculates to a ROI of over 18% a year.

This return beats Apple stock significantly. Since it’s 1980 issue to now, (from $3.74 to $594), that spectacular return averages only 16% per year.

To match the X-Men ROI, Apple stock would have to now be priced at $1,126.
