Dividends4Life: Look Here for Safe High-Yield Investments and Guaranteed Returns

Where can we find guaranteed returns? There was a time where the bank would pay a decent return on CDs or money market accounts. Heck, even our savings account used to pay us a decent, risk-free return. But with the Federal Reserve driving interest rates down to zero during the financial crisis, our risk-free returns simply vanished.

The most obvious place for guaranteed returns comes from Treasury bills, notes and bonds. For quick reference, Treasury bills — or T-bills — mature in one year or less. Notes mature in two to ten years and Treasury bonds mature in 10 to 30 years. From a default standpoint, Treasuries are considered risk-free by most investors. Note that these are not guaranteed returns, but they are highly, highly likely returns. Investors who feel comfortable doing so, can buy bonds in individual stocks.
