So, you want to retire early, help your husband retire early, or go on a swank vacation or two?  The most recent issue of Money Magazine had a blaring cover story: “The Only 7 Investments You Need Now.” According to the article these seven investments will help you plan for those dreams now.  These are big words.  I was intrigued about what they had to say. The seven suggested investments:

1. A blue-chip U.S. stock fund
2. A blue-chip foreign stock fund
3. A small-company fund
4. A value fund
5. A high-quality bond fund
6. An inflation-protected bond fund
7. A money market fund

For each one of these, Money offers some suggestions.  You can read the article, here.
