Guaranteed to never lose value: Another scam?

January 26, 2009

Rocky rubbed his eyes upon receiving an advertisement from a Fortune 500 company that promised an investor would “never lose value.” Rocky knows that such statements are either fraudulent or “qualified in their entirety by the Private Placement Memorandum” (i.e. legal but money-losing.)

Rocky’s initial reaction was to call the Securities Exchange Commission, but based on recent whistleblower experiences, he decided that his time would be better spent buying a new pair of non-prescription reading glasses … so he could independently read the “fine print.”

    Rocky, with the price of of a share of Ford around $2.00 and GM around $3.50. the total of $5.50 is still cheaper than a quarter pounder meal which is $5.99. Either the quarter pounder meal is overvalued or the shares are undervalued….you make the call:)

    I just wish there was a good arb opportunity here.

    Rocky is partial to the platitude:
    “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man arbitrage, feed him for a lifetime.”

    Rocky notes that the platitude is about fish. Not QuarterPounders.

    I think McDonalds hot coffee warns that it’s hot and I hear someone made millions in the law suit. Perhaps Rocky has discovered an alternative means of creating a great fortune at the expense of the golden arches.
