    If you could go back in time, say 10 years ago, what would you invest your money in?

    I would buy a crapload of Apple stock, I read in an article about a year ago that if you had spent $400 buying Apple stock back in 2001 instead of buying an iPod, it would be worth over $10,000 today!

    Google! Ten years ago, Google was not publicly traded. If I had known that Google shares would triple the first day it was offered to the public, I would have tried to get a job at Google. The employees were given and purchased shares from the time they began employment with the company. I don't remember how much the company valued them at, but they were dirt cheap. One of my friends was engaged to a long time employee of Google. He became, along with many of his fellow co-workers, a multi-millionaire the first day.

    This is really interesting question ...

    Instead of investing money on shares and all ... I would like to buy land near today's big business houses or complex or malls are there.

    Along with land I would love to buy gold.

    These two things never lost they charm in today's world.

    I would have borrowed as much money as possible whether it had been through remortgaging a house or selling virtually every asset I had and invested in as many shares of APPLE as possible, a stock that went from $8 per shared in 2000 to between $280 - $290 now. Saying you could have invested $25,000 dollars then, by now you would have over $875,000 and climbing. A self made millionaire in 10 years. Too bad we can't see into the future.

    Lets take a look at a few stocks:

    1) AAPL (Apple) like you said that was a no brainer
    2) RIMM (Research in Motion)
    3) PCLN (Priceline)  This was a horrible performing stock that took a tremendous hit after the dot bomb.  Actually for many years it languished and is now 350.00.  There was a point in time you could have picked this up for a couple of bucks.
    4) BIDU (Baidu)
    5)  Anything copper.......PCU     PD (now FCX)  Copper went way up!
    6) DNDN
    7)  You could have caught some stocks that did quite well but are not doing as well now:  CROX, TIE, HANS, JSDA, WFMI

    You could have bought just about any commodity....Silver Aluminum, Gold, Copper.

    Many currency pairs like JPY & USD

    Or if you bought real estate at this time and sold before the bust.....Well lets just say you have a lot of money now.
