Really?

In your example, Apple only rose 9.1% while Facebook rose 26.7%....

If Apple rose 26.7% (to $696.9), you would have $6272, profit of $1272

Or if Facebook had only rose 9.1% (to $32.73), you would have $5433, a profit of $433.

Note the margin of error, but you would make just as much if you invested the same amount and the stocks rose by the same %age.

5000 / 550 = 9 s

now lets say you sell at $600

600 x 9 = 5400 ... profit of $400

you buy facebook at $30

5000 / 30 = 166

now lets say you sell at $38

166 x 38 = 6308 .. profit of $1308

my point is you can make more money buy more shares of a different stock because of the amount of money you have to spend.
