1000$ is NOTHING, you arent going to make any real money investing only 1000$ especially when it's going to peak, or even fall soon
the jump from 22$ to 46$ was a gradual one, as the Wii was gaining populatiry and selling out everywhere, and even then IT ONLY DOUBLED!
so your 1000$ would have became like 2300$ over that time period
People make more money selling the wii's then that.
take 1000$ and invest it in somthing high risk
buying shares at anything over 46$ a peice, with such a little investment like 1000$ is useless, unless your prepared to hold onto it like LONG LONG term, and hope nintendo comes out with a new system when you own more shares/are worth much more
