Smile on my face. Ear to ear baby!

My fabulous friend Jaclyn forwarded me this interesting email. Its quite brilliant.

If you had purchased $1,000 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.

With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1,000.

With WorldCom, you would have less than $5 left.

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock, you would have $49 left.

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