Financial Literacy Factoid

August, 2011

If you had purchased $100 of Wal-Mart stock in 1971, you would have $207,037.63 today, or a 206,937.63% return. If you would have bought 100 shares, your investment would be worth $5,590,016  today.

This is from a Banking on Our Future youth financial literacy course program that Operation HOPE Mid-Atlantic Board Member and HOPE Corps volunteer Ed Stucky taught in the District of Columbia schools earlier this year.
