I like the inflation linked bond, offers protection once inflation becomes a force to be reckoned with.
Pimco real return.  What about real estate? Its bottomed and due to rise.

Gold and silver can't lose with those two. Both are great hedges against inflation and have never lost value in relationship to what you purchase. Thus 2 silver dimes in 1964 bought you a gallon of gas, the same 2 dimes are woth $4.00, which buys you a gallon of gas. Can't say that about the dollar. So get of the the rigged stock market, the even more rigged housing market, T bills backed by the full faith and credit of the US governement, need I type more. Went all metal once I knew barry was going to get to DC in 08, now I am praying that you re-elect him. As I sit home everyday flip on the TV and by weeks end I have made more money. And with him and benny and the ink jet printing more and more of those worthless Federal Reserve notes, the future for gold and silver is endless. Hope you take this advice and good luck, cause heaven know we are all going to need it.

"get overweight" if you like a stock?  What, are you NUTS?   Sure, you were talking about Apple. Yes, Apple has been a good bet... so far.  But telling inexperienced investors (those who listen to such advice) to bet too heavily on one stock is reckless.  Just ask your Grampa how that worked out with GM, Eastman Kodak, Pan Am or Sony (to name a few).  You would be too young to remember this, but Sony WAS the Apple.   Sony introduced the Walkman.  Sony was THE brand to own in electronics.  Apple has been a winner, but Samsung is nipping at their toes.  General Motors stock was once as solid as any, but GM shareholders were wiped out when GM filed bankruptcy in 2009 (the pre-bankruptcy stock went to 0.00, and absolutlely no value transfered from the pre-bankruptcy GM stock to the post-bankruptcy stock). Ask your Mom how well that worked out with Microsoft, she's been waiting for it to get back to $40.00 for more than a decade!

Not one bit of this article informs you where one SHOULD be investing; metals.  I know, I know, I've heard it before.  There's a reason why they don't want people investing in Gold, Silver, Copper, etc...

Trust me, invest in metals, screw the stockmarket.  Remember, it's never about what they're telling you, it's what they're NOT telling you that is more valuable.

Food for thought.

I quit buying bonds when they stopped selling them at the banks.  I was buying one for each of my grandchildren's birthdays and just started putting money back.  To much hassle now to buy one.

Invest in America? A great patriotic thing to do. I would sooner bury my cash in the backyard, I already lost all I can, never again!

[BRIEFING.COM] The major averages ended the midweek session on a flat note after spending the day inside narrow ranges. The S&P 500 hovered near the 2,000 mark for the majority of the trading day, but slumped to new lows during the last hour of action. The index then returned to its flat line, where it settled for the day. For the third day in a row, participation left a lot to be desired with just 487 million shares changing hands at the NYSE.
