Lesson from a headline, "A 30-Year Treasury Bond: Probably One of the Most Dangerous Investments You Could Make"

"A 30-Year Treasury Bond:  Probably One of the Most Dangerous Investments You Could Make" is a great headline. It's also a great topic.

Why? Because it challenges the average person's idea of what's a safe investment. Turning a common idea on its head will attract readers. In this case, it will also do them a service by explaining the downside of investing in 30-year Treasuries.

Kudos to RegentAtlantic Capital for an excellent headline and story idea for their recent press release.
