But if you had bought 1,000 worth of Tennents Super a year ago, drunk it all and taken the empty cans to a recycling plant you’d have received 214. It’s with a heavy heart that Mole concludes that the best investment advice today is to drink heavily and recycle.
Mole\'s never been one for maths but you can buy him a beer on these sums any day. If you had purchased 1,000 worth of Northern Rock shares a year ago they would be worth 4.95 today. With HBOS, the same amount invested earlier this month would now be worth 16.50.
