Wednesday, October 15th — Investment

Today I Learned…

…what you should have been doing with your money over the past year.

If, one year ago, you had purchased $1,000 worth of stock in the following companies, this is how much money you would have now:

Delta: $49
AIG: $33
Lehman Brothers: bupkiss

However, if you had used the entirety of your money to purchase beer in aluminum cans, drank all of the beer, and then turned in the cans for the deposit (assuming you live in a deposit state like I do in New York), you would now have $214.
