If I can be earning 6-12 percent on some stocks and have flexibility of a year on the back end for a good market opportunity, is it unwise to place it into stocks? This comes from an investor who has not been hit by terrible returns in his investing career (I pulled out most of my equities before 2008 on a feeling while I was taking a finance course).

We had someone who was brighter than everyone else around here a few years ago. Parked his tens of thousands that he was going to need on April 15 to pay a sizeable tax balance due in a sure thing--Lucent. Do I need to finish the story?

You keep asking the same question and getting the same answer, which is clearly not the answer you want. I'll be so bold as to suggest that it's your money, do what you want with it.
