What is the Best Performing Stock Ever?

Based purely on statistics, the “best” performing stock ever between 1957 and 2007 was Phillip Morris (cigarette maker).

If you had invested $1,000 into the company in 1957, your investment would be worth a little under $6 million today. Of course, during those 50 years, you would have had to survive the sudden dips and jumps involved without making any rash decisions, something very few investors have the stomach for.
