Why would treasury bills be a safer investment than buying real estate or common stocks?
Because they are secured by the U.S. government and the government has never defaulted on on its debt.

There is a way, and it's called No Deposit Home Loans. True, there has been a recent uproar on the review of the current lending criteria in line with a requirement for inc…reased home loan deposit amounts, but there are still a lot of banks and lenders who are willing to extend a home loan of up to 95%, with some even 100%.
\nThere are two reasons.\n. \nFirst, bonds have a stated return: it's printed right on the bond. If I buy a two-year bond for $50 and it's got three $10 coupons hanging off i…t, redeemable at six-month intervals, I know when I return the corpus of the bond my $50 will have become $80. But if I buy a share of stock for $50, tomorrow I could wake up to find my share of stock is now worth $35. Or it could be worth $65. Or nothing. \n. \nThe other reason is that if the company goes belly-up, bondholders are made good before stockholders are.\n. \nThe tradeoff is bonds potentially give less income than stocks. Two years from now, my $50 share of stock might be worth $100. It might not, but it could and stocks doubling in price are not unheard of. That $50 bond will never give more than a total of $80.
Partnerships have unlimited liability, while corporations have limited liability.
The average rate of return on investments in large stocks was about 8 percent higher than that of Treasury Bills since 1926 Why do people invest in T-Bill?
- Portfolio construction (top-down) starts with asset allocation. For example, an individual who currently holds all of this money in a bank account would first decide …what proportion of the overall portfolio ought to be moved into stocks, bonds, and so on. - While the average annual return on the common stock of large firms since 1926 has been about 12% per year, the average return on U.S. Treasury bills has been less than 4%. On the other hand, stocks are far riskier, with the annual returns that have ranged as low as -46% and as high as 55%. - In contrast, T-bills are effectively risk-free: we know what interest rate we will earn when we buy them.

Depends where you are! The old saying is what are the three factors for the value of real estate? Location, location, and location. If you are in an area where rental housing …is needed, then yes. If not, no. You need to see what the demand is for rental property. In some neighborhoods that are desirable, rentals may be in demand even if the economy overall is not strong. And the second factor is what can you buy the property for that when rented will result in an "NOI" or net operating income that equates to a percentage of the investment that does better than just putting your money in an interest bearing bank account or into some securities. And if you have "money to burn" today in some places you can buy property at prices that are less than what it cost to buy the land, improve the land, and build the place in the first place. Eventually these properties should appreciate in value, but it may take time, you may not have steady renters, and you will have to keep them up to some extent. Then, down the line, you may be able to freshen them up and either sell them or rent them. But the analysis of time value of money is important.

The primary reason would be that your investment dollars in a mutual fund would be spread among many stocks instead of just one. If you buy a stock and it goes down, you just …lose that value - but in a mutual fund, presumably, the varied holdings balance each other out so that the value of your investment would be more stable.

I'm not sure what is meant by "commercial real estate commonstock". Do you mean stock in a holding company that owns commercialproperties? If so, the best way to decide if it…'s a good investment is to lookat the occupancy rates of those commercial properties, and whetherthe businesses in them seem to be thriving stable businesses ordodgy here-one-week-gone-the-next places. There's a general rule of thumb "lease cars, own land".The meaning of this is that cars generally depreciate (due to wearand tear, most cars won't be worth as much in ten years as they areright now), but land usually (though not always, and especially notover the short term) appreciates ... the historical trend isupward, so that an acre of land will probably be worth more in tenyears than it is right now. That would indicate that owning land,or owning part of a company that owns land, is a good thing. Butyou've got to take into account current economic conditions,because if you had bought a lot of land in most places in 2007, by2010 you'd have been real sad about it, since it would have beenworth less than you paid for it. The short answer, if there is one, is really that if you don'tunderstand something well enough to judge for yourself whether it'sa good investment or not, you probably shouldn't invest in itunless you've got money to burn and are willing to take risks. Eventhen, you'd probably do better taking risks on things youunderstand better, because then you could at least identify whatthe risks were.
