There are many factors that you're not addressing. First, the price over the M4's life runs 
price stable at some time and is either up or down at others. Would the M4 have been a 
good investment at 2, 5 or 10 years? Are we only interested in its investment 
performance at 20 year?

The PAD has had a price jump of around 35% since its introduction in early '96. So far, 
it's a better investment than most stocks. Will it hold up after 20 years? I doubt it. Will it 
be worth another 35% premium in the next 1 1/2 years? I'd say there's a good chance.

If I were to guess, I'd say that the PAD will plateau at around $4-5000 over that time; 
unused of course.
