Investment Advice!

If you purchased $1000 in Delta Stock, one year ago, you would have $49 left;

In Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of your original $1000;

If AIG, you would have less than $15.

But, if you purchased $1000 worth of beer, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for recycling;

Your refund would be $214 cash.

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

Great idea! By drinking my favorite beer, Milwaukee's Best Light at $9.73 a case from Wal-Mart, the return would exceed $300. $1000 would buy a bunch more cans of this premium brew. By gosh, that's a great investment in this bear market!

Yeah, I'm not sure Milwaukee's Best Light is a premium brew
My beer cost $9.73 for 6 bottles, but then I'm and AS snob.... My beer is Blue Moon, or Hogarden.. Both white wheat Ale's.. But I would still make some money on the recycle... Just not that much...

I took the S&P500 closing for the last four weeks and projected the numbers forward in Excel - the index drops below zero next April. Drink up!

Buuuut, in my mind it's about the taste not the dividends... If it's about the dividends you could drink generic beer, YUK.. When they say it's the water that makes it taste better.. You can bet it tastes like water....

Sorry,,,,


I'm not only an AS snob

I'm also a beer snob
