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.
