NF...Retirement Planning for 2008

Recommended Posts

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, today it would be worth $49.00.

 

With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

 

With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.

 

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $49.00 left.

 

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

 

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