What One Share Of A Company Can Buy You At That Company

Here's what you can buy at a random sample of 13 publicly traded companies for the price of one of their shares.

Stocks are on fire lately, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average closing last week at record highs.

That got us thinking: With company stock prices on the rise, what is the merchandise equivalent of the price of one share?

Below are the stock prices of a random sample of 13 companies and what you can buy at those companies based on their stock price. (Note: Stock prices are as of the close on Monday, July 22, and items exclude taxes.)

For instance, for the price of one share of Yum Brands, which owns Taco Bell and other casual dining restaurants, you can buy 31 seven-layer burritos. Yum indeed!

1. Lululemon: $67.51 or One Yoga Mat

The yoga mat is actually $68 but we rounded up. Lululemon shares are still cheaper than a pair of its signature Wunder Under yoga pants, which retail for $82.

4. Berkshire Hathaway: $178,223 or 50,920 Dairy Queen Blizzards or 23,450 Boxes of See's Candies Lollipops

Berkshire Hathaway, led by Warren Buffett, owns Dairy Queen, See's, and a host of other companies. (Blizzard figure was calculated using the average price of $3.49 for a medium Blizzard; See's figure was calculated using the $7.60 price for a small Lollypop Box.)
