My brother sent along his new retirement plan. He wasn't too sure what direction to go, since he did a little research on other ideas. For instance...
If he had purchased $1,000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.
With Enron, he would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.
With WorldCom, he would have had less than $5.00 left.
With Lucent, he would have $3.50 left of the original $1,000.00.
But, with the purchase of $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, and then he drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling, he would have had $214.00.
Based on the above, he decided the best investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
It's called the 401-Keg Plan.
