The Three Little Pigs Went to the Stock Market

Three little pigs went to the market to stock up for the future.

The first little pig liked chips so he went to the DOW market. He was told by everyone you could always rely on their products. They were always good. The manager told him you could put them away and forget about them.

The second little pig liked spicy things. He shopped at the NASDAQ market where they had unusual products. He said that his purchases were good to put away even though they had some strange ingredients. He took his home and said he did not need to worry about them even though others had told him to be careful.

The third little pig went to both of those markets. He would pinch the tomatoes and squeeze the Charmin. He was a very careful shopper. Many times he would put things in his shopping cart, but later take them out because they were not "just right".

Our first little piggy brought home his purchases, put them away and many times forget about them. The store manager had told him they would always be good and he believed him so he did not bother to check on them periodically.

When the second pig got home he also put the things he picked out at the market on his shelf and would brag to his friends about the great things he would have in the future when he was ready to retire. He would have more than he would ever need. He rarely looked in the pantry, but once in a while he knew that one of the products was spoiling. That didn't worry him either, as he knew they would still be fine some time in the future when he wanted them.

The third little guy put his purchases away, but regularly checked to see that they were all right. If one of them was not "just right" he would take it back to the market. Our third pig made sure that none of his market purchases went sour.

Time passed and our first little pig got to the point that he needed to start eating out of his savings. To his dismay he found many of his guaranteed chips has spoiled. There were still enough there so he could eat, but not the way he had before. Our second pig also no longer bought at the market, but when he went to the pantry he found almost all of his purchases had become rotten. In order to eat at all he had to take a job at Wal-Mart as a greeter.

Mr. Third Pig's purchases all were good because every month he had checked to be sure nothing was going bad and if it was he would get rid of it right away. He was able to enjoy being at home or playing golf because his pantry was full.

It seems it doesn't make any difference where our 3 pigs did their shopping ? DOW or NASDAQ markets. The important difference was that the one who checked to be sure his purchases never went bad was the one who ended up with plenty.
