        I agree asha, I'd want to go back to school toget a finance degree for this type of money.

        Its so much and I'd want to understand what the recommendations meant.

          My portfolio would look something like this:

           

          Credit Union Money Market  50%

          Physical Gold/Silver 10%

          Dividend Paying Stocks 10%

          Real Estate 5%

          My Business 4%

          Fun Money 1%

          Family Trust 20%

           

          *I would not give away money to friends or make any donations trying to be a hero.

          *I would not hire any lawyers, accountants, or financial advisers.

          No way, no how would I invest $200M out of a total of $220M. I'm not even going to pretend. I think investing $100M - $125M is more than enough. I won't touch it. Not even the interest, everything would keep rolling over until I get to $1B. I want to be the first lottery winner to get to $1B. But I'd stop at $2B. 

          I'm okay making only $2B instead of 8. There is just so much money I could spend before I don't need or want anything else, have everyone I care about taken care of, and all trusts and charities set up

             If I won this jackpot, I would hardly invest at all. I would not need any more money than I had and I am sure I could just live of the interest earned in few savings accounts. No need to risk losing it in a bad investment. I also like CDARS accounts. You can put large amounts into bonds at one bank who keeps track of the account.

              That's not so farfetched... there's already a businessman in China selling "fresh canned natural air" taken from mountains and valleys with very low

              pollution to the people in the city who are afraid of the pollution lol....

              I think he stole that idea from the movie Spaceballs

                sookie,

                Um, you would have millions more than anyone teaching you anything about finance!

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Most of it would be saving, CD and US Government Bonds.

                  May be 5% or less for higher risk investment like stock markets.

                  If I have more than enough money for the rest of my life, I don't care if the money doesn't grow or grow very little.

                     Residental Rental Properties. 90% of the prize will be invested into purchasing mid to upscale rental properties in LA and OC. Of course, some of 90% will be left as the cash reserve.

                     What makes me really curious is how much income those properties will generate every year.

                      For me, I will see roughly $188M after all taxes & tithe has been paid.

                      $100M will go towards muni-bonds. Fully non-taxable and pays from 4-6%. Being as the income at 4.5% would be $4.5M/yr, and my budget will be 1.2M per year (give or take), I will continue to reinvest the remainder. Over 26 years of compound growth, I will have $255M after spending over $1M/yr.

                      Then, with the remaining $88M, $15 towards new house, cars, furniture, etc. $40M trust fund for my kiddo & $10M to play with in the market (I currently do that now for myself as my "job") & the remaining $23M for gifts, angel investing and spare cash when I "bump into" a good investment at the golf club.

                        My first investment would be in a good security frim and disappearing for a year before claiming the money.

                          If you disappear for a year before claiming the money, I don't think there will be anything to claim when you re-emerge.

                              I personally like precious metals and real estate.  Possibly some program trading of equities.  Have some ideas for businesses also.

                               

                              What would you invest in if Lady Luck knocks on your door with these huge jackpots?

                              My wife already has plans to build a large dog shelter. 

                              I'm buying lots of land.
