I don’t usually give out stock information but I will make an exception.
As I was going over my sorry 401K, I decided to try and make some adjustments. I discovered that if you had bought $1,000 of Nortel stock one year ago it would be worth $49. With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1G. With WorldCom, you would have less than $5. If you had bought Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank it all, then turned in the cans for the 10 cent deposit, you would have $214.
Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. This is my new retirement program; I call it my 401Keg program.
