If I felt the options are limited I would take a slight amount of the money and invest it in further education to better understand what is possible in such economic times.

On 2/25/05, the S&P 500 had a P/E of 19.2 which is a 5.21% yeild. On 01/20/05 a 5yr CD yeilded 5.25%. Would you be kind enough to tell us where one can get a higher real rate of return with similar or less risk then that 5yr CD? Than you.
