Investment Advice in the Current Financial Conditions

September 19, 2008

I received this email from a professor at UMKC regarding investment advice he received from a man who lives in Scotland, so I thought I would share this very valuable and important advice with everyone considering the kind of economy in which we are living at the moment.

In the current storm that surrounds investment, this little guide might help a few of us….

If you had purchased £1000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago it would now be worth £4.95.

With HBOS, earlier this week your £1000 would have been worth £16.50.

£1000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5.

However, if you bought £1000 worth of Tennent’s Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an aluminium re-cycling plant, you would get £214.

So based on the above statistics the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle.

    Well, I recycle, but I guess I’ll have to start drinking heavily. Anyway, I’m glad you have this kind of inside information.
