If you had bought $1,000.00 of Nortel stock some time ago, it would now be worth $49.00. With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1000.00. With Worldcom, you would have less than $5.00 left. If you had bought $1000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer not the stock) one year ago, drunk all the beer then turned in the cans for the deposit, you would have $214.00. Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. This is a new retirement program, I call it the 401 Keg.
