High Yield CDs - Big Pic

MixMasterMike helps us find a CD offer at 1.3% APY.

The CD rates thus far in 2013 have been terrible.  We would only consider Ally Bank or this week VirtualBank's CD offers.  We did find a 1.3% APY offer but there's a catch.

Sorry fellow Masters, the picking is slim.

Sick of gambling your money in the stock market?  We all are.  The only problem is in 2013 high yield CDs are far from "high yield".  More like zero yield.  But for those that still care about these options here is what you can find nationwide as of March 2013.

Dividend Stocks

Forget High Yield CDs, they only offer up 1% at best for a year.  Go with our dividend stock picks.

Fellow Masters, the best 'high yield CD' you can buy will only give you 1 to 1.2% yield that locks your money away for an entire year.  We would rather buy a high yield dividend stocks that pay a 8% to %13 dividend yield plus whatever the stock gains in 2012.  Making the cut are New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (NYMT), CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) and Vale (VALE).

Dividend Stocks

The best a high yield CD can pay you is 1% a year.  Mastery would rather invest in 6% to 13% high yield dividend stocks.

The term 'high yield cd' means nothing in 2011 - 2012, you have to turn to high yield securities, and that means dividend stocks.  Mastery turns to New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (NYMT), CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) and Vale (VALE).

The masters have your 3 Month CD alternative.

Let's face it, the return on 3 Month CD's is abysmal, Ally is offering a not-so-great .39%, USAA .45%, and the winner is OneWest Bank coming in at .60%.

That's right, there's just one word if you are hoping to score higher CD rates -- forgetaboutit.

The best one year (12 month) CD you can lock into today is only at 1.27% APY.  They get worse if you are trying to discover a 3 month or 6 month option.

Let's hope at some point certificates of deposit become a better option that can possibly yield 2% or more.  Gone are the 12 month 4% APY rates days prior to 2009, we pray they come back at some point.
