"With 10 year Treasuries at near historic lows (1.90 percent), CDs at 0.5 percent APY, bonds averaging 5.20 percent from 2003-2012 and stocks in the S&P 500 averaging 4.95 percent annualized returns from 2003-2012, Mosaicís expected yields are competitive with the best investment products on the market."
