Top 5 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2023


One day many years ago, I found myself stuck in traffic and noticed a peculiar sign. It said something about the construction that was going on — the very thing that was hampering my commute.

It said all this construction was being funded by a bond. This was before I had ever started my career in finance, so bonds were an unfamiliar thing. But when I began my investment career, I soon realized that I could actually invest in these things. And the more I learned, the more I was ecstatic.

After all, If you can’t beat ’em, might as well make money off them…

You see, these types of bonds have a name — general obligation bonds — a type of municipal, or “muni” bond for short. These bonds are used for everything from helping fund road construction to building schools, bridges, water infrastructure and other public buildings. As I became more familiar with municipal bonds, I quickly became a fan. In fact, in my experience, muni-bonds are one of the safest ways for investors to earn income in today’s market — while also beating the tax man. (More on that in a moment.)
