Yihang commented on Make your tuition worthy.

Thank you, Shane. Investment is really a challenge for low-income families. People usually just consider high yield and ignore risks. I suggest that the most important thing is keeping their principal for low-income families who do not have enough financial knowledge, instead of seeking high rate of return. For example, I suggest several financial instruments: Banks deposit rates 2.5%; One-year treasury notes rates 3%, five-years 4%, ten-years 5%; Mortgage bonds rate 6%, S&P 7%. Generally, rate-of-return would wave around these rates. Small fluctuation could be accepted. High yield is equal to high risk, sometimes Ponzi scheme.
