The following info was sent into me by one of my three readers. As an investor with very limited knowledge of the stock market, this makes perfect sense to me. So I thought I would share…

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

With Lehman, you would have $6.60 left.

With Fannie and Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.

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

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.
