IN READING THIS POST YOU WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO SUE ME, WHINE, COMPLAIN, BITCH AND/OR OTHERWISE MOAN AND GRIPE
Well I said I was going to give you a gift and here it is;
Yep, that's it. It's my latest stock investment.
You see, Bradman a while ago was complaining because I didn't tell him about my stock pick of Northwest Airlines when it was trading at 60 cents a share. Now it's at $5 a share or something and I made a tidy profit on it.
And how did I manage this amazing return?
Skill had nothing to do with it.
Talent had nothing to do with it.
I didn't even bother looking at the financials.
IT WAS ALL LUCK!
I figured it was trading a pennies per share, and thought, "eh, what the heck, I'll gamble $1,000 on it" and by LUCK, it paid off.
The same thing with GWLLF.
YOU ARE PRACTICALLY GUARANTEED TO LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY ON THIS INVESTMENT!!!!
It's a horrible investment.
Only fools would invest in it.
A pox upon you and your family if you are foolish enough to invest in it.
Woe upon the man or woman that parts with their money and invest it in this company.
So don't tell me I didn't warn you.
You are an idiot for investing in GWLLF.
However, there are much worse investments in my opinion than GWLLF. Like Beanie Babies. Children. A degree in philosophy. And a diamond ring. And despite GWLLF practically GUARANTEEING A NEGATIVE RETURN, I'd still rather invest in GWLLF than a diamond ring for a bevy of reasons.
1. From The Economist
GWLLF can make a brand new car for $6,500. GOD BLESS CHEAP CHINESE LABOR. If you thought Toyota was going to give GM and Ford a run for their money, wait till you see what non-unionized Chinese labor can do! Of course the quality of the cars are incredibly poor, but so too was the quality of Daewoo and Hyundai. Now they produce decent quality cars.
2. From Wikipedia.
That's right, it's the only privately held auto manufacturer in China right now.
Now, even though the Chinese government at any time could reposses the assets of this firm. At any time the local provincial governors or the town's politcal boss could hit it up on trumped up charges. At any time Great Wall Motors may decide to do something EVEN WORSE and replace their Chinese labor with labor from the UAW, thus guaranteeing their demise. Despite all these possibilities, it is still better than a diamond ring.
For at least with Great Wall Motors there is hope.
There is hope, albeit very little, it will become the next Toyota.
There is hope, albeit very little, that they will increase the quality of their cars putting them on par with Honda, GM, Ford and BMW.
There is hope, albeit very little, that it will turn a profit and cash flow.
However, with a diamond ring there is no hope of a return. There's only the chance the girl you give it to will divorce your ass anyway.
So men, knights, economists and heroes, lend me your ears.
Don't buy your beloved a diamond ring or jewelry of any kind this holiday season.
Buy her hope.
Buy her GWLLF.
