its not considered down... if you buy this stock you obviously not hoping to double but to wait a month or two when they go x100 x200 or even x1000

I'm no analyst but AAPL still seems pretty cheap to me.  Can easily hit 6 within 2-3 months.

IMO, wrong way to say your price range. 
What is the total you want to invest in one stock?

an example: A $5000 investment in a $12 stock has you buying 400 stocks.  If it goes up $3 each.  Great. Now your investment is worth $6000.

A $5000 investment in a $75 stock has you buying  65 stocks.  An odd number, but easy to order and own with an on line broker.  If it goes up by the same percentage as example 1,  it goes up $18.  New total $6045   Same profit approximately.

So the price of the individual stock is less relevant than the total amount you're investing in one company.

Love to get some thoughts from this group on the Hilton IPO. I don't want to violate any forum rules or I'd have put this question out in the "On The Road" section to get more eyes that are familiar with hotels.

I like IPOs (especially this year's) and there are a lot of positives about Hilton right now (restructured debt, solid income statement, good leadership). Blackstone is holding on to their shares, which says something even if you don't know much about the company. But I wonder if the valuation is too high- is Hilton worth more than Starwood or Marriott (@ $14B market cap each)? The offer range translates into $20B - $24B market cap.

(Note, the article has some fuzzy math so if you want to make sure your numbers are right you need to check the prospectus)

Try S they have been up as of late, I was eyeballing them about a year now. I have seen then grow from under $6.

Mark, stocks go up proportionately.  If a stock goes up 5%, you make 5% on your investment.  It doesn't matter whether you have 1 share or 5000 shares. (And don't tell me lower prices have more volatility.  It's not true.)

So you shouldn't consider stock price, just value.

Nah, you can use online brokerages for $5-7 per trade.
