What's the CPI target for that one?

The way I do the math, assuming you are intelligent and buy at the end of the month (11/30) holding the money in an Emigrant account until then and get out as soon as possible (on 11/1/06, say) would be a semi-annual CPI rate of 1.46% (so an annual rate of 2.9-2.95%). This assumes a state tax rate of 6% (i.e., that you live in MO).
