The year was 1998. Google formally incorporated; Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to yet another championship; Titanic broke through $1 billion in box office sales; and this author, living in Newfoundland, visited British Columbia for the first time. In the spring of that year, shares of The Coca-Cola Company traded above $40 which had never happened before. By the middle of July, the stock reached a high of $43.97. Today – twenty years later – Coca-Cola trades a little over $42 per share.
