I did a little research, because I know some of you will be dissecting this point. I can’t be sure exactly how well Arlo’s dad would have done if he’d acted on Arlo’s advice and bought Xerox stock in 1961. However, I was able to see that Arlo would have done quite well himself to buy as much as he could when he returned to 1986–especially if he sold it in early 2000. What do you think? How good was Arlo’s advice? If you could go back to 1961, what would you buy?
