If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock
one year ago you would have $49.00 left.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1, 000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 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 $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice
is to drink heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg.

I just reinvested some funds on that very stock this past Friday. Really good suggestion!

So, you remember when a dollar was a dollar. Translated: it was worth something.
Use this site http://woodrow.mpls.frb.fed.us/research/data/us/calc/
to calculate yesterday's dollar worth to today's worth, and vice-versa.
