Numbers might be off by now, but the moral stays...

"If you had bought $1,000 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth about $49.00

If you had bought Enron, you would have $16.50 of your original $1,000.

If you had bought WorldCom you would have less than $50.00 left of your original investment.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Budweiser beer not the stock one year ago, drank all the beer and then returned the cans for the $0.05 deposit you would have $107.00."


Now you know what to do with your commissions...
