The New 401 K Plan

Let's end the investment week with a little investment humor. This is one that has been floating around email mailboxes lately.

The New 401 K Plan

If you purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left.

With a Lehman investment, you would have $6.60 left.

With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 today.

But if you purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the deposit REFUND, you would have $214.

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

It's called the 401-Keg plan
