Investment Advice

If you had spent $1,000.00 in shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today!

If you had spent $1,000.00 in shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had spent $1,000.00 in shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle.

It is called the 401- Keg plan.

And, as a bonus… a recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that on average Americans drink 22 gallons of alcohol per year. That means that the average American gets about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you proud to be an American doesn’t it!

    I think Wade will like the sounds of this investment plan. The nice thing about it is that even children can start working on investing in the future by starting with coke.

      Yes they can Ann. šŸ™‚

    I forgot to ask, Wade gives all our cans to a friend. I wonder if we can write that off as a charitable deduction? …..LOL

    I don't drink so I can see I have some catching up to do.

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:54 am

      Yes, but you walk so you're doing your part. šŸ™‚

  8. October 3, 2015 at 5:11 am

    Such a great plan. Sounds like a winner to me. Nothing better than a cold beer and you can make money too. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:54 am

      I'm not a beer drinker, but one good cold one with pizza works for me. šŸ™‚

  9. October 3, 2015 at 6:21 am

    I'm a Canadian and doesn't drink beer so I guess that tells me that my plan is OK. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a fantastic Saturday Sandee. Say hi to Zane & Little Bit for me. See ya.

      Thanks honey, it's good to see you visit again. I've missed you. šŸ™‚

  12. October 3, 2015 at 7:14 am

    Darn. I gave up beer because of the carbs. Maybe they'll find a way I can make money drinking vodka šŸ˜‰

    To quote the movie "Team America: World Police" … 'Merica, F**k Yeah

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:55 am

      Vodka is way better than beer anyway. šŸ™‚

  13. October 3, 2015 at 7:31 am

    Smart advice! Make money and do something good for the environment. This is a plan that I can get behind!

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:56 am

      It's a plan most of us can get behind. šŸ™‚

  14. October 3, 2015 at 8:10 am

    Sandee, I don't invest in shares and I do not beer. So I guess I am a lousy investor! It doesn't sounds like an exciting life! Lol!

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:57 am

      No, you're smarter than the rest of us. šŸ™‚

  17. October 3, 2015 at 9:56 am

    Love this, Sandee! šŸ™‚

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:57 am

      I'm glad Linda. šŸ™‚

  18. October 3, 2015 at 10:13 am

    Never knew that Vodka got such great mileage!

    • October 3, 2015 at 10:57 am

      Well, I didn't either and now we both know. šŸ™‚

  19. October 3, 2015 at 11:03 am

    So THAT's how a person becomes "green" – just drink 22 gallons of booze a year!

    • October 3, 2015 at 11:06 am

      Apparently so Alec. šŸ™‚

  20. October 3, 2015 at 3:31 pm

    Heeheehee! There are a few people i know who might make use of this advice!

    • October 4, 2015 at 8:10 am

      There's a lot more than a few here. šŸ™‚

  21. October 3, 2015 at 7:06 pm

    Make my gallons ice cream. Lol!
    401- Keg plan. Love it!

    • October 4, 2015 at 8:09 am

      I think I'd rather have the ice cream too. šŸ™‚

  22. October 3, 2015 at 10:48 pm

    My favorite part of this was the math at the end. Although 401-Keg is pretty hilarious.

    • October 4, 2015 at 8:09 am

      Some people are so creative with this kind of stuff. šŸ™‚

  23. October 4, 2015 at 5:41 am

    Fabulous analysis!

    • October 4, 2015 at 8:09 am

      It certainly is. šŸ™‚

  24. October 5, 2015 at 11:54 am

    I believe in chocolate investing for similar reasons.

    • October 5, 2015 at 2:55 pm

      Works for me. šŸ™‚
