Hi fellows, couldn't help but overhear your conversation so I thought I would share a very interesting statistic I heard today that may help put this in perspective. I had this on tape and had to listen to it twice to make sure I was quoting it accurately.

They said Microsoft's current market capitalization adjusted for inflation is what IBM's was in 1951. From that point, over the next 9 years IBM went up 16 times in value.

Seems today was another sign of the changing of the guard with msft continuing to rise and ibm down 10. History does repeat, go with the flow.

Good luck.
