Is Gilbert Arenas a fool for trying to buy
the Barry Bonds
ball to save
it from getting an asterisk?
He is doing the right thing. Just because someone was "ACCUSED" of something, doesnt mean he did it, so Gilbert wanted to buy it. He even said that "HE WOULD GIVE IT BACK IF BONDS WAS FOUND GUILTY" which means he doesnt really want it, he wants to save bond's record
Would allowing Americans to buy saving bonds
help the deflcit?
No it would not. A deficit is the result of spending more than you take in with annual revenue. When you buy a bond, you are lending money to the government in the form of general debt. it is not income like taxes.

to save capital gains
from sale of housing property.?
for proper information plz refer to section 54B of the income tax

is this a good time to open an roth ira with mature saving bonds
Well, it depends on your age because you can't withdraw earnings on Roth IRAs until you're 59 1/2, and you have to have owned it for at least 5 taxable years.
If you're around 44, then it would be something to think about.
If you're not, then you can take that money and buy shares of a no load mutual fund with a brokerage such as T. Rowe Price. Make sure you have an emergency fund before you invest.
Hector Said:Are Canadians proud of being a British Dominion a loyal to the British Empire and Commonwealth?We Answered:Aw that is so sweet hearing that come from the UK.
Yes, of course we feel the same way. My great+++++ grandfather Henry Stata, fought as an empire Loyalist.
For every soldier who fought for Britain, the queen gave them the title U.E. (United Empire) that could be put at the end of their names, and all their descendants will inherit that title. Some of us still proudly carry that title.
We still sing God Save the Queen, but not as our national anthem...
Marjorie Said:Canadian corporation strictly for investments in securities?We Answered:NOt muchof a downside, although it is a lot ato go through to save on a little bit of taxes (maybe). Depending on the structure of the corporation, you could well wind up paying as much or more in taxes. The taxes in Canada might be favorable, but if you are a US citizen and the only shareholder, they're still going to get you at some pointDan Said:i am a canadian with 50k, whats the best place to safely invest ? some high interest bond ?We Answered:GOLD!

my dad bought a few of them for my son and he made me a guardian so I simply signed on the back of the bond for my son.
It would be easiest if your mom took you to a bank where you already are a member.
be aware of the date taht the bonds were purchased.
A bond that was bought last year with a face value of 100 bucks will...
Luis Said:Is a saving bond a good gift to give for a grade school grad?We Answered:I believe that you should take your money and go to a bank like Capital One and open a high interest (5%) free checking account. Open it in both of your names, and don't tell the child about it until later. Then show them the benefits of saving. Once you put a little money in, it becomes addictive to hit $100.00, then $1000.00, and so on. Teach them how to manage the money, rather than make it untouchable. That is...
Dale Said:Is saving bonds the way to go: when I dont know how to invest?We Answered:most banks offer free financial consultations with financial advisors. Ask the teller the next time you go into your bank. They can really help you more than you think. Bonds can take up to 30 years to mature, so they aren't always worth the investment unless you start when you're a minor.Marcus Said:How do you find out how much old saving bonds are really worth?We Answered:Well the best thing to do is go to any bank first and if they can't tell...

They could buy back what was avaliable on the open market, but it would be a 50%-50% guess whether this would be a good move or not-they would pay market prices already based on current interest rates.
The way they can "fiddle" with the interest is, when (not if) they want to raise more cash, is to sell long vs short term...
Kenneth Said:What are the advantages and disadvantages of saving or investing in these?We Answered:Stocks:
Advantages - potential for best gains.
Disadvantages - highest risk
Advantages - Still high potential for gain with much less risk than single stock. With a single mutual fund you can have a very diversified portfolio.
Disadvantages - Expenses generally higher than stocks; many have minimum investment requirements.
Life insurance - in order to really consider this an investment, you would have to go with Whole life insurance. Term life pays nothing once you cancel the policy, so it's not really an investment any more than Auto or homeowners insurance.
Jo Said:Premium Bonds or a building society for saving money?We Answered:Building societies can give you quite a good return APR.
Premium Bonds are quite fun :). You get no interest on your investment but its like lottery. The sweet difference from lottery is that you don't lose your money to bet. But you lose your interest.
The money you win is tax-free as well.
Have fun with your money :D
ThutaVictoria Said:Do you think the government should consider operating a system like the Premium bonds.?We Answered:So what's wrong with just using premium bonds for this?...
Leslie Said:What is a saving bond? My daughter is getting one but idk what it is?We Answered:It is a document (traditionally paper, but now often electronic) that says that the U.S. government will pay her money in the future. There are two types that are commonly purchased now:
1. Series EE Savings Bonds are purchased for 1/2 of their face value. (For example, a $50 EE savings bond costs $25.) They gradually increase in value at either a fixed rate or a rate determined by the rates on other types of U.S. government debt.
2. Series I Savings Bonds...

One is a savings bond calculator and the other is the government website for bonds.Tamara Said:I have been receiving bonds from my grandmother since I was born. What are the pros & cons of cashing them in?We Answered:considering that your savings bonds are probably only earning 2% - 4% interest and you're probably paying 10-20% interest on your credit card, you would be much better off cashing them in and paying off your debt (and then make sure...
Marlene Said:HELP! How do I find out what type of Saving Bonds I have & if theyve been cashed, without the serial #'s?We Answered:Do you know fact that the bonds were purchased in your name?
There is a way to find the info you are looking for, just have to remember it. Did same thing last year.
if they are in your name, there is no signing them over. they are yours when you become of age.
Almost sounds like that they were purchased under two names.
Where either person can cash them. All your grandmother would need is your grandfathers death cert.
Violet Said:Are saving bonds like a CDs, but the gov't can change the interest?We Answered:The deal with savings bonds is that the Federal government guarantees them against default, and if they do default then the global economy would go belly up and the default would be the least of your problems.
The EE bond pays interest for a long time, its low interest but it won't realistically default. A nice place to put the low risk portion of your retirement savings. The interest payments are added to the bond over time but its not income until you redeem the bond...
Anita Said:Invest for my 5 month old in America or UK?We Answered:The long term returns in both countries are quite good. Currency fluctuations though, mean that while it is very cheap to buy dollars with GBP, it might not always be so. I would invest for her in the same country in which you see her living long term. If you expect to return the US, it would make more sense to invest there, and in the short term, will be very cheap for you to buy dollars.
As you're talking about a long term investment, there are...

Sam Said:I make 65K a year. If im saving 15percent of my paycheck a year how can I invest to maximize investments?We Answered:Standard investment advice is that you should invest in a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, and money market funds. You want to buy a diversified portfolio of stocks as individual stocks are too risky. Most folks have a dificult time buying a properly balanced portfolio of stocks on their own. They will misbalance their portfolio by buying all small stocks or all growth stocks, or some other misbalanced assortment of stocks. Unless you know what you are doing,...

Bobbie Said:what can be done to increase the saving rate in south africa?We Answered:I think this is more of a case study. If you look back, in recent years, there have been many uprising economy stars in Asia. It has been awhile since I opened my Macro book, so I won't be able to be technical. When saving goes up there will be more money to lend out. This means there is more capital to spare, which should encourage businesses to borrow more money. Also, when a country has to obtain its currency like South Africa, they will want people...
Jared Said:Is this an appropriate title for my essay?We Answered:Yes, it is a good title, although "redemption" is not really a word i would use.. more like:
"I.T: Machines; They Destroyed Our World"
Something like that, but choose whatever.. the name you have is fine, its your choice.. It's definitely an attention grabber, though.
PS. These are eight definitions of redemption and unless you mean saving us from machines, redemption is the complete opposite of your argument;
1. an act of redeeming or the state of being redeemed.
2. deliverance; rescue.
3. Theology. deliverance from sin; salvation.
4. atonement for guilt.
5. repurchase, as of something sold.

As you know if you bought a $100 savings bond you would pay exactly $50 for it. Using the Rule of 72 a bond paying out 3.7% would reach face value ($100) in 19 years.
72 / 3.7 = 19.45(the number of years it takes to reach...
Todd Said:saving bond?We Answered:Bonds are different. There are U.S. Savings Bonds, local state and city bonds, municipal bonds etc. A bond is basically a promise to pay, that's why it's called a bond.
If you buy a $100 bond, it usually means you will be paid back $100 on or after a certain date a couple or few years down the road. So, you usually would buy the bond for less than it's "face" or "maturity" value. Maybe you could buy it for $90 or $85. Bonds are usually VERY low interest earners.
People that buy them usually feel very confident...

Try this site. It's probably got a chart.Joe Said:if i got a 100$ saving bond in the year 2001 how much is it worth now?We Answered:Your saving bond is worth $100 at maturity. This is when the time period of the bond has elapsed. The time you have to wait is usually 20 to 30 years depending on type. When you buy a saving bond you don't pay the $100 for it. You pay less and let the interest until it's worth the...
Delores Said:I lost a united states saving bond in 1970 and i have not been able to trace it.can anybody help me?We Answered:Bonds that are lost, stolen, mutilated, or destroyed can be replaced free of charge as long as we (the Bureau of the Public Debt) can establish that the bonds haven't been cashed. To assure that the bonds can be traced, owners should keep records of bond serial numbers, issue dates, registration, and social security or taxpayer identification numbers in a safe place separate from the bonds. (The Savings Bond Wizard is a great way to do this!)...
