Default What the best account for your savings?

I'm saving up for a boat. 20-30 thousand range. And I want to put it in an account to build up over a few years say 4-5. I will be adding 3-5thou. to it each year. Most the increase will come from me adding to the account. What type of account should I put this in.

Stock market on a stock that pays good divides

Savings accounts don't pay crap for interest....

Invest in a stock like AT&T, Phizer, or a high yield bond

Read a few of Dave Ramsey's books. He might not know as much as some of the guys on here but he is pretty sharp. If you want pm me I have the audio CDs from one of his classes I took that you can borrow.

If you have a few thousand and want to go into the market you can open a scottstrade account and buy

Just make sure you invest in a safe stock with high paying div.

Just last year alone I made half of what I made working on Div. Payments..

My biggest response to my wife while we were taking the class was "fawwk Dave Ramsey". But dude knows his stuff. We still apply quite a few of the things from the class at home but not everything. Still a good tool for anyone thing about saving or investing.

He is the man, BUT he would advise AGAINST buying a boat because the boat isn't gonna make you any money, its an expense and Dave don't like expenses

He can make you rich, but you gotta live without the finer things in life for a few years.

The money is for long term, future retirement etc. Some will go towards buying a boat , but not all.

Actually what W said is what I would recommend also. Invest it in an established dividend paying stock (ATT, Altria, Exxon) savings accounts pay crap for interest.

3k would be a good start

If you learn how to watch trends you can buy low sell high
A while back when everyone was in a panic when the market was down..I was buying up all that. Low stock


Made 112%. Profits last year on LNG
