I'm doing a cursory check of "bond funds" and "income mutual funds" suggested by Money Magazine and it seems that the 10 year annualized return on these things is anywhere from 4% upto 8%.It was Money Magazine that talked me into buying my first stock.It was while invested in that stock that I discovered TMF (The Motley Fool).It was TMF that taught me the REAL secrets of investing.It was a good thing TMF did that because the stock Money Magazine had touted nosedived and I lost $10,000 on it.It would be a good idea to ask yourself "If these funds are doing so well while the market as a whole is doing so badly why isn't everybody invested in them 100%?It would be a good idea to thumb through Money Magazine and see if you can find a single stock that they think is a bad investment (rots-o-ruck).It behooves you to continue checking around the boards here at TMF where many of the members are giving out good advice.It is a good thing you are smart enough to ask around rather than accept the touting of Money Magazine.You might find it profitable to look around some of these boards:http://boards.fool.com/dividend-growth-investing-116719.aspx...http://boards.fool.com/drip-investing-companies-100089.aspx?...http://boards.fool.com/drip-investing-the-basics-100090.aspx...http://boards.fool.com/millionaire-fools-113485.aspx?mid=292...http://boards.fool.com/real-estate-inv-trusts-reits-100061.a...http://boards.fool.com/the-bmw-method-116681.aspx?mid=293724...Desert (buys only dividend paying utility stocks) Dave
