If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today!
If you purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG, you would have $33.00.
If you purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman brothers, you would have $0.00 today.
However, if you purchased $1,000 worth of beer, drank all the beer, and turned in the aluminum cans for recycling, you would have $214.00.
Thus the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.
It is called the 401-Keg Plan
(Thanks, Linda!! Sounds like a winner to me! Do they pay us to bring back aluminum cans here in DC?)
