Quick question that maybe someone can help me out with. I have the bulk of my cash savings in an account that is now only getting .80 APY. When I opened the account I was getting a 5% return, but that didnt last very long. What are some decent investments where I can at least look at getting a 4% return?

i went through loop-holes to invest mine as well, best return is with money laundering.  good thing , i have multiple contacts. i don't want to know how the money is invested, as long as i get a surplus every month.

buy some Verizon or AT&T stock, both yielding a 4-5% dividend.

Variable annuities or Fixed Annuities, T bill or a CD, If it is retirement savings i would do a variable annuity! There are many variances on the product, depends what you are looking for, it is an investment, nota bank account!

Annuities are for suckers.

Get term insurance and invest the balance, screw paying those high fees and capped returns from annuities.
