<< Motley Fool,
Generally speaking can there be money made by taking out a home equity loan and reinvesting it in the stock market? Taking into consideration all the costs for the loan,interest,tax implications/advantages,inflation and
the current stock market returns.
Loan $10,000
Interest rate 8.99% 60 month loan
$50 PREPAY FEE
No Appraisal Fee
$50 Process fee
Tax deduction for home equity loan ????
Tax paid on capital gains ????
% of return expected annually 15%-20%

Is this an UNfoolish thought?
