Cash Investments

I just ran across a website I had not seen before that claims to provide a “…comprehensive set of resources and tools to earn higher, safe returns on your cash.” The site ( ) isn't very slick in appearance, but it does have information on the following types of cash investments, including reasonably current interest rate comparisons for the best rates in each category:

Online Savings & Money Market Accounts
Money Market funds
Auction rate securities
Variable Rate Demand Notes
Certificates of Deposit
Treasury Bonds
- Series I Bonds
Agency Bonds
Municipal Bonds
Commercial Paper Accounts
Federal Credit Union Accounts

I did note that the information on CD rates at CU's is as of September 24, and it is as of September 28 for Banks, so it isn't updated daily.


Numbers is hard.

Re: Cash Investments

I keep my cash allocation in Vanguard's Prime Money Market - It's beat 99% of the money markets over the past ten years. Currently yielding around 5.1% - I haven't checked in a while....
