Retirement Planning

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 $49.00 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 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

**The above figures cannot be verified as totally accurate

I wonder if my company will endorse this plan... then they could do company matching and I could buy more beer!!!

That's funny. That's more than I have in retirement. I had a boss who would gobble up penny stock and sell it when it got better. Now that I think about it, that was a great idea.
