Default O/T: Investment Strategy

Enjoy

Investment Strategy

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago,
you would have $49.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would
have $33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago,
you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you
would have received $214.00.

Based on the results above, the best current investment plan is to
drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.

By the way, a recent study found that the average American walks about
900 miles a year.

Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of
alcohol a year.

That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the
gallon!

Makes you proud to be an American, doesn't it?

Now there's a mark to model scheme if ever there was one. You actually
bought $786 worth of beer, and loaned someone $214 dollars without interest.

Well, to be real for a change, investing is about careful consideration
(or paying someone for careful consideration) how much to invest into
what and when. Then, eventually, selling the investment at a time others
think they are worth more than you think they are. Supposedly that is
all based on publicly available information. I think thaat now is a good
time to invest in beaten down companies that will eventually rise above
the current turmoil and do well. Unfortunately, I don't have a crystal
ball, and neither the dough nor the time to devote to this kind of
careful gambling.

Nevertheless, for the individual, the motto remains buy low, sell high.
Good luck.

PS. Here in Jersey there is not much deposit to invest or loan.
