Broadcom stock (ticker: AVGO) has surged 51% so far this year, compared with a 16% rise in the S&P 500 index. With Tuesday’s closing price of $844.60, shares remain near a record intraday price of $923.67 set on Aug. 31.

Director Harry L. You paid $860,000 on Sept. 15 for 1,000 Broadcom shares, an average price of $858.96 each. He now owns 3,510 Broadcom shares, including restricted stock units, according to a form You filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
