    Well I'm not an investment expert, but I know that gov. bonds are not risky at all. Junk bonds are high risk/high potential gain. I would think stock in a large (well established) company would be low risk and in a small (upstart) high risk. So in my mind it comes down to junk bonds or upstart stock. Maybe a little research would help? I want to say junk bond, but I can't say with confidence.
