Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is reviving his offer to buy Twitter for $54.20 per share, which is about $44 billion, following a tense legal battle between himself and the social media platform, according to a regulatory filing.
If you had invested $1,000 into Twitter a year ago, you'd have less money currently.
However, if you'd invested $1,000 into Twitter five years ago, your investment would have nearly tripled in value and be worth around $2,929 as of Oct.
And if you had invested $1,000 into Twitter when the company went public in 2013 at the offer price of $26 per share, your investment would be worth about $2,000 as of Oct.
If you're considering investing in Twitter, Tesla or another publicly traded company remember: Given the unpredictability of the stock market, you shouldn't use a stock's past performance as an indicator of how well it will perform in the future.
