Here in Philly, we are distressed about the financial woes of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA), the organization that runs our busses, trolleys, subways, and regional trains. Every year SEPTA ends up short on cash, and every year miracle money mysteriously appears to pull it through the crisis.
But this year, SEPTA really, really means it. If it doesn’t get a cash infusion, it will implement the dreaded CONTINGENCY PLAN, which involves layoffs, fare hikes, and service reductions.
All of this drama presents a unique investment possibility. I have decided to invest in SEPTA tokens and recommend that you do the same. Check this math:
- base fare, current = $2.00
- token price, current = $1.30
- base fare, proposed effective 2/27/2005 = $2.60
- token price, proposed effective 2/27/2005 = $1.70
- base fare, proposed effective 3/6/2005 = $3.00
- token price, proposed effective 3/6/2005 = $2.00
If SETPA raises fares on February 27th, each token you buy now will be worth an additional forty cents. That’s a return of almost 31%! If they raise fares again in March, your tokens will increase in value by over 50%. And if you compare the current token price to the future base fares, your rate of return is even higher.
Because the tokens are guaranteed not to decrease in value, this is a low-risk, high-profit investment and an outstanding opportunity to infuse SEPTA with the money it needs while lining your own pockets. Please feel free to forward this information to everyone you know.
