Build a ladder of CDs, bonds to reach for higher yields [USA Today]

Friday, January 15, 2010 - 11:53 AM
USA Today columnist has a way with words:
The biggest drawback to creating a bond or CD ladder now is that rates are lower than an ant's sneakers. The five-year Treasury note now yields 2.48%, and the average five-year bank CD yields 2.07%.
Fortunately, we can get CD rates much better than the average.
