A friend e-mailed me the following floating around the internet. I heartily agree with the sentiment after tonight’s disappointing Spitzer/Suozzi debate proved upstate will be getting four more years of benign neglect from our NYC overlords:
If you invested $1,000 last year in the following stocks, your return would be:
WorldCom: less than $5.00
However, if you purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago,drank all the beer,
then turned in the cans for the recycling refund, You return would be $214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It’s called the 401-Keg Plan.
