Buy High, Sell Low

This came in an email forward.  It was originally posted on a CNBC blog.  While I can’t verify the math, it’s plausible and puts the financial crisis in an interesting perspective.  Consider this:

 

“If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left. With Lehman, you would have $6.60 left. With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.  But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have had $214. Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.”
