TK Ways to Invest $5,000

I’m writing an article about a number –TBD– of ways to invest $5,000, and looking for quotes, suggestions, and commentary. I am looking for suggestions from experts in the field. Suggestions can be timely –certain sectors, industries, foreign countries, etc. that look undervalued– general –“mostly stocks, some bonds, always keep costs low with index funds” or could fit into some other basket.
