Liquid investment

Investment advice forwarded by a friend today:

If you had purchased £1,000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago it would now be worth £4.95.

With HBOS, earlier last week your £1,000 would have been worth £16.50.

£1,000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5.

But if you bought £1,000 worth of beer 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.
