Closed: MorganStanley. Added to: First Republic. Opened: INOVA.

Comment: (1) MorganStanley. While the 1.9%CD was tempting, it turned out to be a marketing gimmick. I bailed and closed my account upon maturity. (2) First Republic. Never quite known for good CDs, it came out with some tasty specials. (3) INOVA. The 14-mo 2.4% was too good to pass up. Kudos to the customer service by the Berkeley (CA) branch manager, Chelle Martinez.

Just applied to Patelco's Flexible rising rate certificate. 1st year: 3.0%; 2nd year: 3.5%; 3rd year: 4.0%. Dropping CIT's 12-mo. CD: 2.5% and taking the EWP with 6 mos. remaining. I was attracted to Patelco's 2rd and 3rd year rates and the ability to withdraw funds each anniversary without incurring any penalties.
