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.

2. Gap Inc.: $45.07 or One Pair of Printed Shorts

3. Urban Outfitters: $42.76 or A String of Anthropologie Popsicle Lights & One Cat Face Flask


The lights are $24, while the flask, at Urban Outfitters, is $18.

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.)

5. Apple: $426.31 or One 32GB iPad Mini

6. The Walt Disney Co.: $64.40 or Roughly Two-Thirds of a One-Day Pass to Disneyworld

A one-day pass to the Magic Kingdom costs $89 for kids ages 3–9 and $95 for guests ages 10 and older.

7. Tiffany & Co.: $78.99 or A Tiffany Heart Tag Charm Sans Chain

You’re going to need to own a lot more shares before you can buy that diamond.
