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:
