    Default Investments - what would you do?

    If you had $50 000.00 to invest, what would you do with it, given the dire situation with regular investment companies? I'm talking about short to medium term, eg 1 - 3 years.

    Rubbish! The price of gold is too high now, it has only one way to go. Buy shares in a company which is at present undervalued. They have also only one way to go, and it's up! Look closely at Ryman Healthcare, Nuplex Resins and NZ Refining Company. Or look at Australian shares, there's heaps of them good bargains at present.

    Invest in an innovative company before their shares go past $160 a share (again) - or invest in some gold but the shares will be a better bet in the long term - 5-8 years.

    Term deposit at the bank or government bonds.

    What sort of interest would you get from government bonds, and how do you acquire them?

    It would depend on the income you expect to receive over the 1 to 3 years on the investment.

    Over more time I would invest in property or land.

    Make sure you also get the initial investment back plus interest.
    There is no one thing that is safe unless Goverment backed.

    You could think about bonus bands. No interest but you may win.
