Safest = savings = very low returns. Best depends on your risk. Risk and return are, on average, correlated.

Index funds if you want to play safe and not touch anything

Safest? High yields savings. You could one of Ally's CDs for 18 months at 1.30%

P1 Not so safe if the market gaps down 25%! Otherwise, though, index funds offer many benefits (broad market exposure, low expense ratio, low idiosyncratic risk, liquid, etc)

All investments balance risk and reward; minimal risk investments (high-yield savings, CDs) will yield minimal (sub-inflation) returns. "Best" is pretty subjective - what are you investing for?

Distressed Debt.

Define Safe? Are you looking for gains or protection from loss?

Gold

Cocane and strippers? Might not have long term value, but in the short term has quite a high return.
