If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.
With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.00.
Worldcom leaves you with less than $5.00
If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) a year ago, consumed all of the beer, then turned in the cans for either the recycled aluminum fee, or the 10¢ deposit, (depending on your state of residence), you would have ( ± $214.00).
Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. This, new retirement program, is called the 401Keg program.
Thanks to Paula for this one...
