How ( Best ? ) to Invest ...
Where to put your spare cash prudently , now : that's a tuff 'un !!!
For example :
If last year you bought for 1000 ( of : pounds , or Euros , or $$$ or CHF or Yen ) shares' worth in Nortel Networks , today you could get all of 59 back , for them ;
if last year you bought for 1000 currency units shares in Lucent Technologies , now you could get 70 for them shares ;
if last year you bought for 1000 currency units shares of Alcatel , now you could get all of 170 back , grreat ...;
had you last year prudently purchased for 1000 currency units , bottled fresh beers ( Stella/Leffe/Ozujsko ) in Croatia
( where the brewery in Zagreb is owned by giant belgian InterBrew ) ,
for the empty bottles alone , you could now get 380 currency units back...not to mention all the alcohol and calories , partaken of ;
but , I don't really drink beer , hardly any ever - so ,
what else is left , but chew one's fingernails over whether Google ( bought at $220 , now somewhere over 400-odd ) will go to 500 or a 1000 ( either price , to me , has equally No Logic , Nil Reason , Nor Sense , to it ) .........
or back "down" , where it probably belongs , to $100 ??????????????
