401-Keg Plan

A little mid-day humor. If your 401 looks like mine, you could probably use it.


If you had purchased $1000.00 of Fannie Mae one year ago, it would now be worth $31.00.
With Freddie Mac, you would have $37.25 left of the original $1000.
With Lehman Brothers, you would have less than $5.00 left.
If you had purchased $1000.00 of AIG stock you would have $44.00 left.
If you had purchased Bear Stearns, 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.

If you invested $1000 in roulette and kept betting red you would have $490 on average.

Or if you invested in a 3% CD you would have $1030.

Well, shared this with some friends and the verdict is in. We should start buying some beer....

Thanks for some levity.
