    anything safer - less volatile?

    I also have been studying Everbank, their rates are obviously attractive. What is your opinion of that institutions financial stability.... there is plenty to like about 2.5% in a savings account. Do you place ING or Ally Bank in the same grouping with Everbank? By the way, I also have had enough of SHY as well. The NAV moves have devoured the yield.

    • SHY continues dropping as recovery looks more likely and people shift from treasuries to equities. Today's drop is indicative. I too have seen the paltry yield almost wiped out by the drop in market price. I will hold on through today to qualify for the next dividend and plan to cut my position way back. I may now start averaging in to a high dividend stock fund like ADVDX. // I was unaware of Ally Bank but will take a look. Everbank seems sound but frankly I am relying on the FDIC insurance for any funds placed there. They have a 3-month teaser rate of 3% for deposits up to $50k. After 3 months, the yield drops to 1.8%. I will then look for other opportunities.
