How does one invest in a market in which bonds look fairly unattractive and stocks aren't a screaming buy either?

That's the question I posed to users in the HandsOn forum of our Discuss boards. Readers, with few exceptions, concurred that there's not a lot to get excited about at the moment. There were few enthusiastic posts about bonds in the whole thread, but some posters believe that selected blue chips have decent upside potential at this juncture. Others are simply staying the course, putting money to work in accordance with their long-range asset-allocation plans.
