Question What pays the best returns?

If you had $100,000.00 what would you do with it to pay the greatest returns. Now we all know that boats are not investments, so all though that would be nice, Im looking for something that could produce a little better return
I know there are some very smart guy's out here....what do you think?

Bank CD's are the lowest risk, lowest yield...Vegas is high and high.

Anything in between is too tough to trust these days.

Someone else already mentioned it, Real Estate is the best investment.

Tantrum,

Call my wife, Thats what she does for a living, and she's damned good at it. She will give you the best advise on what to do with your money depending on where its from and what your looking for.

Tantrum:

Returns over what period of time ? Will you need the $100K in the foreseeable future (3-5 yrs) for some planned expense like college tuition ?

Stock guys will tell you stocks/equities. Bond guys will tell you bonds for safety. Real estate people will tell you real estate.

At the end of the day, what really matters is what type of investment can you live with. I personally get very little enjoyment out of reading my monthly account statement. So the majority of mine is in waterfront real estate. That said, I recognized the value of diversity and liquidity so I keep some money in the equities market. I can't sell the real estate overnite if I need to. I can liquidate securities in a matter of minutes if I need liquid funds right away.

Sorry, I don't think I answered your question. Probably just raised more questions.

Tom

Four years ago I took 120,000 cash and bought a quad apt. building. I have been offered 180,000 for it and I have about a 15% return.They say real estate is going to take a turn for the worse but I have faith in the rentals as even in hard times the people who rent will still need a place to rent.
