Default Hows about a new fun game in investing??

We each have 100,000 to invest.
You must invest the entire 100,000 in one place.
I put mine into gold. You can put yours anywhere you want. Such as AAPLstock.or a savings account. Lets see who makes out it the next 6 months.

tsaw: 11-6-10 - 100k invested in gold =
100,000 / 1397.30(price per ounce) =71.57 oz of gold.

Silver bullion.

$100,000/$26.76 per oz. = 3,736.92 oz. of silver bullion.

I was going to pick copper, but it seems to be (in part) growth driven and I don't think we're gonna see much growth in the next 6 months.

Interesting idea. You may come out with the most in the end. If stocks crash and gold and silver crash.

May be worthless if the Treasury keeps up with their "QE" 600 billion and another 600 billion. Pretty soon the paper will cost more than the money that's printed on it!

Sucks getting old. . . use to know everything. (or thought I did)

100k in real estate Costs less to buy a "whole" house right now than to buy just the pieces (materials). Only problem is the housing slide isn't over yet
