FORTUNE -- Before clocking a $100 billion loss in early 2009, the California Public Employees' Retirement System, known as Calpers, had the swagger of a hedge fund and the certainty of a saint. Other pension funds followed its lead, loading up on leverage, investing in unrated CDOs, shoving money into high-priced private equity deals and barreling into commodities and real estate.

After four races in which Lady Luck wasn't on his side, Matt Crafton and the No. 88 Menards Chevy team finally got the monkey off their collective back with a solid third-place finish in last week's Lucas Oil 200 at Iowa Speedway.

What is the best investment during a recession?
Now is an especially good time to consider bonds, some planners say — perhaps for as much as 20% of assets. "There are a lot of reasons for investors to reconsider their stock-to-bond balance," says Harold Evensky, a financial planner and principal in the Coral Gables, Fla., money-management firm Evensky Brown & Katz. Evensky recommends putting money into an investment-grade corporate bond fund rather than buying U.S. Treasurys, the gold standard of fixed-income products. Why? Even after the Federal Reserve's surprise half-point interest rate cut last week, corporate bonds remain an attractive alternative for ...
