Investment Advice

If you had spent $1,000.00 in shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today!

If you had spent $1,000.00 in shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had spent $1,000.00 in shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle.

It is called the 401- Keg plan.

And, as a bonus... a recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that on average Americans drink 22 gallons of alcohol per year. That means that the average American gets about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you proud to be an American doesn't it!

  1. I think Wade will like the sounds of this investment plan. The nice thing about it is that even children can start working on investing in the future by starting with coke.

  2. I forgot to ask, Wade gives all our cans to a friend. I wonder if we can write that off as a charitable deduction? .....LOL
