McDonald's Big Mac

McDonald's released the iconic Bic Mac hamburger on August 22, 1967 selling for a whopping 45 cents. Given the low price point, this scenario (perhaps unrealistically) assumes you could have bought fractional shares in McDonald's stock while incurring no transaction fees. If instead of buying the Big Mac on launch day, you had invested in McDonald's stock, your shares would be worth an estimated $1,315 today (or $1,315 after fees).
