Plenty of people believe the stock trend will be upward from here--especially if you look at the NASD index graph since Sep 23. Its going straight up. This could be just a response to interest rate cuts, but it looks like an opportune time to recover some losses.

For better yield than CDs with similar safety, take a look at investment grade corporate bonds. You want those rated BBB or better and probably with reasonable maturities--say less than 10 years. You should buy them in at least $5000 batches and probably own at least 5 five different issues.
