Thanks, George! Merry Christmas to you too.

You can buy a nice 10 lb. Butterball Turkey for just one share of Microsoft.
One share of AIG can add some nice frozen vegetables and a share of General Motors
is worth 5 lbs of yams. Note: All share prices are as of Friday's close.

Now for Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, there are some real deals you will find with your not-so-deflated shares. A single share of Google can still buy a 10-Megapixel camera at bankrupt Circuit City. One share of CNBC parent, General Electric can buy you over 100 multicolor light bulbs (not GE-branded) for your tree from Target. Unfortunately, one share of Citigroup on Friday was worth less than Chutes & Ladders or the Candyland game, but with the new TARP money, Citi is looking like it will rally today, if not by Friday. Finally, that Ford share you have been holding on to could make a nice stocking stuffer, big enough to buy a 6 oz. pack of candy canes.
