Series EE Savings Bonds Beat Treasuries

Thursday, August 18, 2011 - 2:29 PM
The Savings Bond Advisor has an interesting note on EE bonds:
it's remarkable that new investments in Series EE bonds, which have a fixed-rate of 1.10% and a guarantee that they will double in value in 20 years (an annual rate of 3.5%) are now a better investment that the equivalent Treasury securities that the big boys buy.
