Tfw you need a +100,000% return on a \$1000 investment to make a \$1,000,000

tfw you need a +100,000% return on a \$1000 investment to make a \$1,000,000
tfw buying and holding the stock market only gives you a 5% annualized return after inflation...

When multiplying numbers like that just add the zeros together

1000 * 1000 is 1,000,000

Lunatick

@Illusionz
You're technically right, but I'm thinking in terms of price change of a stock going to the moon

(1+(100,000%/100))*\$1000 ~ \$1 million

King_Martha

@New_Cliche
that's why it's better to invest \$50,000 instead of \$1,000

50,000 * 1,000 = 50,000,000

50,000 * 100 = 5,000,000

50,000 * 10 = 500,000

(1+(100,000%/100))*\$1000 ~ \$1 million

farquit

@Lunatick
Literally what are you writing retard, no wonder you're a NEET

Think through it logically.

1000 * 10 = 10,000

So 1000 * 100 = 100,000 (Hmmm ONE THOUSAND, times one hundred... hmmm that gives us one hundred thousand)

1000 * 1000 = 1,000,000

Notice how the zeros add up in the product, retard?

@New_Cliche
In real terms, you should be making ~10% in real terms with stock, annually.

implying that \$100 going up to \$200 is a 2% return (200/100 =2)

I cannot believe I'm reading this. Do you even know how to percentage?

@Spamalot
are you guys retarded?

1000 / 100 = 10 10 = 1% of 1000

1,000,000 / 10 = 100,000

so you need 100,000 1%'s, which is 100,000%

also . your investment isn't just 1k

the rent your money earns, and the money you will be adding monthly.

// init = initial investment lump sum , in your case 1k
// reup = is how much more u invest monthly
// yrs = is how many years you want to calculate for
// div= is the dividend amount of the company you bought
// this formula assumes the market will grow 14% a year

function calculate(init,reup,yrs,div){

div = div * 4 * yrs ;
init = init + reup + div * 12 * yrs *14 ;

return init ;
}

calculate(1000,100,10,10); // this is an example, u can change the numbers acorndingly.

still. if u stick to simple good habits, you should be more than comfortalbe by the time you are too old to work hard, with a very modest amount of money.

Bidwell

just make sure u pick good companies with nice dividends, honestly , i think in the next 10 years teh market will deliver much better than 14% but thats just my cyclical, post 10 year + recession optimism.

iluvmen

@SomethingNew
fuck off autist. If you invest 1000 in a stock it needs to go up 100,000% in order to become 1,000,000. its that simple.

Inmate

Holy fucking shit you're all god damn retarded.

Veeky Forums is a fucking joke.

Techpill

Do you actually think when it says +100% next to a stock or crypto that it's value has been multiplied by 100 in the last 24 hours? Is this board populated by children??

kizzmybutt

@FastChef
Yeah. I can imagine some here reaching retirement thinking they'll be fine and then the look on their faces when they realise they only have a tiny fraction of what they require.

@iluvmen

yea. okay dimwit. keep adding zeros 2 the back of shit and see how far that gets u in business.

@Inmate
Do you suck your moms dick with that mouth?

Bidwell

@kizzmybutt
no ur right . that @kizzmybutt
formula was rong.

its supposed 2 be * .14 then add that 2 init .

dont know why someone doesn't jsut fix the formula, but i will later.

Techpill

@Bidwell
the actual formula is more complex and requires and interator, 2 account for the growth per year . i will try 2 put it 2gether , but im obviously no math genius >.< so give me a sec and be eazy on me, if i wasn't working it out on this board, i wouldn't be doing it at all :p

ur gonna wanna be doing something like this.

so that u can manipulate and redefine the amount of capital per dividend yield.
its not necessarily as simple as just pre algebra

@idontknow
200/100 = 2.0
1.0 is 100%

So 2.0 is a 200% return. U plum fucker

@hairygrape
just gonna go 2 bed and leave this here till 2 morrow, maybe good will hunting will beable 2 solve it b4 me ;)

tfw if you get 4% annual returns after inflation for 40 years, your investment will only be worth nearly five times as much
man what is the point, if you invest your extra income over your entire life it's only going to maybe double or triple. What is one million compared to three in your 70s. There's no becoming rich through patience and frugality. Might as well enjoy it when you get it
