I have been looking to invest my extra cash from SDA since last year. My bank offered me to put it in a long-term retail bond, but the net returns are so low that I am thinking of buying stocks instead. But then, I am afraid that I may just lose my money because the market is not so good. I am confused. Can you help me? – Roque Paragua by e-mail

Given that I am heavy into Philippine stocks, what would be the best strategy for my portfolio?—Posted at PFA’s “ask a friend, ask Efren” service at www.personalfinance.ph
