after-tax yields

The condominium - expected annual increase in market value = 2%.
Municipal bonds - expected annual yield = 3%.
High-yield corporate stocks - expected dividend yield = 5%.
Savings account in a commercial bank-expected annual yield = 1%.
High-growth common stocks - expected annual increase in market value = 6%; expected dividend yield = 0.
Calculate the after-tax yields on the foregoing investments, assuming the Brittens have a 28% marginal tax rate (based on Public Law 108-27, The Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003).
How would you recommend the Brittens invest their $40,000?
