    Worth While Investment

    If you had purchased £1000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago they 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 £114. So based on the above statistics
    the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle!
