Don't Open a Short-Term CD at Ally Bank

It is not a good idea to open a CD with a term of 9 months or less at Ally Bank. The reason is based on simple math. Here are the latest CD yields from Ally Bank High Yield CD (as of 7/11/2011):

3 Month CD = 0.44%
6 Month CD = 0.94%
9 Month CD = 0.99%

Instead of opening one of these shorter term CDs, it is a better choice to open up an Ally Bank No Penalty 11 Month CD with an APY of 1.19% APY. Because it has no early withdrawal penalty, you can withdraw your money from the 11 Month No Penalty CD at any time. The yield beats out any of the shorter term CDs that Ally Bank offers, so there is no need for any of the shorter term CDs which will charge an early withdrawal penalty. Also, there is no minimum deposit requirement on Ally Bank CDs, and Ally is FDIC insured.

I would like to comment about the linkedin public offering . and the other social networking stocks that will most likley be going public soon. New issues are almost always bad investments the vast majority of these stocks are way over priced on purpose. I always recommend that investors stay away from these stocks.

I'm always trying to get the cheapest airline tickets, so I usually book connecting flights, but I wonder if this really saves me money overall?
