Investment advice

I got this email this morning and thought that it was amusing enough to recycle...


If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have
$42 left.
With Lehman, you would have $6.60 left.
With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.
But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling
REFUND, you would have had $214.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily and recycle.
It's called the 401-Keg.....


Drink up people, drink up!

Invest!? If I had $1000 to hand, I wouldn't be investing. I'd be spending. On cakes and Victoria's Secret body lotion.

You know I LOVE beer!!! I'm more of a beer girl rather than a wine girl... but I'm not picky!!!

I got this email too, but only funnier because it came from my husband who is a licensed financial advisor. :)
