What are you going to spend your spoils on?

Hypothetically, if the share price were to climb to $1000 in 2025, what would you spend your gains on? (after taking care of your responsibilities, obviously)

No answer is too tacky.

I like the style of this architecture and design, but not at that price, and not in that neighborhood (several of the Kardashian clan have homes in the Madison Club. Yuck.)

Very nice house, I would’ve thought for something like that the price is not too bad?

At $250 and above my wife and I will be looking to buy one of these boats for cruising the oceans, an FPB designed by renowned naval architect Steve Dashew (3 FPB 64s currently for sale on Yachtworld). Previously I was set on an Amel Super Maramu, but why mess around with sails in potentially stormy weather when you can motor anywhere in comfort and safety on the seven seas, even against the Tradewinds? Safety is the main consideration though, these are essentially bulletproof, efficient, long range, go-anywhere cruisers able to right itself if quickly if knocked over. Ideal for crossing the Drake Passage to Antartica😉.

If not $250, then an Amel is not a bad fall back at any rate. Cruising will happen!

I have only begun to do boat research.

It would probably involve being in Florida and exploring the Caribbean.

Great cruising grounds in the Caribbean by all accounts. Fav shows on YouTube are SV Delos and La Vagabonde, these were the initial inspirations for cruising hence the Amel. Can’t wait to get out there😉

My dream would be an architecturally designed sea side home over looking the ocean with a car lift into the lounge room (or maybe my study) so i can admire one of my classic car collection. I could choose from my 1963 911, 288 GTO, 250 gt or the Peugeot 205 t16.

Mind you even if the Sydney property market goes splat $1000 per share may still not be enough!

Circa $10-15 mill for the house and $5 mill for the cars.

@Clinhope I learnt to drive in a 205 (till my brother wrote it off). It was only an xs, not a t16, but I like your idea..... I could claim it as an homage to my youth. The 205 was replaced with a Citroen ax gt which was a bundle of fun, but being made from tin foil, I'm glad to have never pranged it.

@Frogster, nice. They're full of character those cars. I had a series 2 1.9L 205 GTi for about 5 years, cost me $12k in intermittent repairs but I still promised myself when I sold it that I'd restomod a 205 one day. Whether that's a gti or t16 will depend mostly on Clinuvel 😆. $1000 per share will definitely allow that.

@Johnny H you assumed replacement rather than additional. My current one is a good machine, just a bit small. Wouldn't mind a bit more power, stability and lift and rear SCVs for a top and tilt set up.
