The Poor Tale of Apple's 3rd Founder

Ron Wayne sold his 10% stake for just $800
You know Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak as Apple's founders, but you probably don't know the tale of third founder Ron Wayne. The Chicago Tribune presents the somewhat sad story of the then 42-year-old, who designed the original logo and wrote the manual for the Apple I computer—but got out of the company after just 12 days, spooked by 21-year-old Jobs' wild spending habits and the fact that he was the only founder with any assets that creditors could seize. So he cashed in his 10% stake for $800. Had he held onto it, it would be worth $22 billion.

Wayne's current reality is a much, much more modest one. The Tribune paints a picture of a man who cashes in his Social Security checks, then heads to play penny slots at a Nevada casino. He sells stamps and rare coins to pad his income, has never owned an Apple product, and hasn't heard from Jobs in years. "I don't waste my time getting frustrated about things that didn't work out," he says. "Why should I go back and 'what if' myself? If I did, I'd be in a rubber room by now." But then he adds, "Unfortunately, my whole life has been a day late and a dollar short."

Please, update this to wiki. I was reading stories on AAPL a while ago and completely missed this.

A lot of people were getting excited about e-cigs but there are too many legal limitations around it.

Anything related to hemp/marijuana will be big when they eventually legalize it.
Sounds just like the stock they were cold calling people about in the movie Boiler Room.

I was looking for news intraday but didn't see anything. My only guess is some funds might have picked it up. UNIS was an Australian company at first that traded on the ASX (Aussie market). They sold pinksheet shares in the US but recently transfered the whole company to the US and did a reverse split to get onto the NASDAQ. They transfered to the US because they felt that they would receive more market exposure and hopefully get picked up by some funds.

Although, Rob might be right. They could have started some cold calling up Friday. It will revolutionize the whole industry as we know it

This is a longterm speculative play/gamble for me. Bought it first in December when it was a pink added and took profit a few times since, but I plan on holding some until at least the end of the year. Cramer talked about it twice on his show. First time blasting it then the next time saying it looks good and may payoff so who knows.

Did some research, I think I'll put a little money into that. Looks like a good spec play, thanks for the recommendation.

It's a little concerning to me that the first post detailed 3 stocks, all of which were parroted straight from Jim Cramer (though I do love me some Netflix).

The concept of a "breakout" stock implies speculation or stocks with a lot of room to move. None of the stocks you listed have a lot of room to move (Netflix will eventually, but not in this economy).

In terms of the stocks I play as a speculation angle, I like RF Micro Devices, Pier One Imports (really, one of my favorite stocks out there period), Cummins (a stable company with a ton of room to move), Clean Energy, and Corning (GLW)

You missed the point.

Who is the NEXT netflix? Those were examples of products that caught on, leading to ridiculous gains. What's the next big product?
