3,142% gain made on Domino’s

Pizza franchise firm’s astonishing 17-year returns
Thursday 13 Jul 2017 Author: Steven Frazer

Quick eats chain Domino’s Pizza (DOM) has been a stunning success for investors over the years, returning 3,142% on its original IPO. That took place in late 1999, in the middle of the dotcom boom, at 50p per share. That equates to 8.38p today, once you adjust for share splits.

A mere £500 stake invested in the IPO would now be worth £16,210, enough to buy you a 12-inch American Hot pizza (£16.99) every night for the next 2.6 years.
