Re: 0947: “Investing”

Who considers a savings account investing? At 8% you're at 2,158 after 10 years -- more if you reinvest your dividends. What are you investing in that grows 8% and also provides a steady dividend? 8% is roughly the rate of return for the DJIA -- if that included reinvesting dividends I don't recall.

THIS IS DANGEROUS, SO DO...
