MONEYTALK with Al Suffrin
Are U.S. Bonds the way to go when it comes to saving?
Dear Confused: The question you need to answer is when will you need the money you will save weekly.
If you answer within the next five to eight years, then U.S. Savings Bonds are a good investment because they are safe and pay a competitive interest rate compared to other investments.
If you answer more than 10 years, you should get with your parents and open up an investment account through a local broker or directly through a mutual fund company, and invest your savings in a conservative equity mutual fund.
The reason is over the long term, an equity mutual fund may provide you with more earnings compared to bonds.
