If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1000.00.

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

If you had purchased $1000 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $36.00 left.

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

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

It's called the 401-Keg Plan

For my families future this is where my investments are, not in high cap corporations.

I like Jim's theory! You got something to show for it $214 and a big ole beer belly!

Funny stuff.

No windmills or solar cells for my portfolio unless someone shows me a technology that generates ROI without subsidy in a reasonable amount of time.

Seriously, though, I complained to my wife that maybe I should look harder for a 2nd MC that is 10-25 yrs old. With a lucky find, maybe a much better return than wall street. She was not buying it.:(

an MD here that's a family friend of ours... when he heard about the iPhone... sent a guy to NY for the debut... the guy bought one went to the hotel room... tore it apart... wrote down all the components companies he could find on the phone components and the MD has made about $60k so far off purchase of iPhone component suppliers' stocks... new MC anyone?

A lot of people around here are getting the best bang for the buck I suppose.....
