America’s Investment Choice
A Gallup poll was recently conducted to determine America’s choice of the best long-term investment. The choices were stocks, bonds, savings account, real estate, and gold. An astounding 41% said real estate. And that 41% is the highest percentage of those 5 categories in 11 years.
