Your 401-K(eg)

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

With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1000.

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

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $49.00 left.

If you had purchased United Airlines, you would have nothing left.

But, if you had purchased $1000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund you would have $214.00.

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

This is called the 401-Keg Plan

. On the other hand maybe one should invest in certain stocks whilst they are so low. I'm sure they will com up again someday.

It is a good time to invest, but be wary... it's hard to know what company is next.

I don't like beer, how much can I get for coolers?

True, but the return on your investment is less.
