If you had purchased £1000 of Northern Rock shares one year
ago it would now be worth £4.95, with HBOS, earlier this week
your £1000 would have been worth £16.50, £1000 invested in XL
Leisure would now be worth less than £5, but if you bought £1000
worth of Tennents Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took
the empty cans to an aluminium re-cycling plant, you would get
£214. So based on the above statistics the best current
investment advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle.
Hey, the numbers are what they are.
