I remember when I was 14 I had worked that whole summer with my Uncle so I could afford to buy some shoes that everybody was goin to be wearin' I shouldn't have because it only left me 15.00 for my school supplies and lunch money.

A few years ago I inherited some stock in a company called CAE. They make simulators for planes, trains, ships, tanks, etc. For a few years I held on to them, collecting a small dividend every year. Then the company cut the dividend and their future looked bleak. I sold the stocks for $6.10 a share and used the money to pay for a month long vacation to the Netherlands for my family. Within 3 months, the stock was up to $9. It is now over $13 dollars a share :(
