Imagine Buying Netflix Stock 18 Years Ago

You probably didn't get a party invitation, but Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) is blowing out 18 candles on its IPO birthday cake on Saturday. Netflix executed a 2-for-1 stock split two years after going public, followed by a 7-for-1 split in 2015. Put another way, investing $1,000 in Netflix when the stock was born would be worth $400,698.67 today as an 18-year-old adult.
