David,

There's really no investment that pays a higher return because it takes you a week, not a day, to get your principal. If you want risk free liquidity, 2% is all you're going to get in the market.

If you're willing to assume some risk, buy some low P/E dividend paying stocks (FDP, POS, ING, REITs, MRK, utilites, etc) Or perhaps corporate bonds or MUNIs.

If you don't need as much liquidity, a CD is the obvious choice.
