If you figure the worth of money at 3 to 3.5%plus the cost of inflation. Your risk grows as return
goes up. I cannot think 12% return would not have some above average risk. I was getting great returns
on some of my stock and mutual fund investments. You
tend to forget the risk when everything is going so
good. I know better now what my father always said
when he talked about (you cannot have your cake and
eat it too.) The last few weeks have taken a bite of
my cake!!
