Your Best Investment For 2007-2008

Jonathan Clemens of Hawaii provided this great informative tidbit for today's "we can't stuff money under the mattress - we sold the mattress" times:

  • If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you would have $49 left.

  • With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000.

  • With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.

  • If you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, guzzled all of the suds, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash!

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. Forget those 401-Ks, my friends, and go for the 401-KEG!
