  • Catch 9.6% Yields With These 2 1/2 Year Yankee Bonds From Copeinca ASA, Peru [View article]
    Thanks for the questions, "What is the point?" 1st you are completely subjective to some one else control with EHI. This is a leveraged large pool of funds with many different investors with different objectives, goals and trigger points than you have, sharing the same asset. This pool try's to make money off the leverage, playing the spread game, which greatly increase both the risk and volatility. Their is no maturity certain, a very important aspect if interest rates are going up.

    On EHI uses leveraged ! The risk in a downturn to lose principle is very high.
    On expenses EHI Total Expense Ratio is 1.53% That's roughly three times higher than ours.

    EHI is not organic 9% yield, it's using leverage and possibly derivatives to make their high yields. If the interest rates they pay to the banks for the leverage, begin to rise, this will make the yield spread collapse, this often occurs when the bonds they hold are falling in prices, creating a double whammy.

    Be careful if inflation hits, principle here I would forecast would be significant impacted, but in a flat to lowing interest rates this should do well.

    We like higher levels of protections, shorter maturities, less fees, with true organic income. They offer a OK service, it like comparing apples in bulk, to individual bananas, it makes more of a difference on what your goals and desires are.

  • Cool 5.85% And 7.8% Yields In R&R Ice Cream Foreign Currency Bonds, Mature 5/15/2020 [View article]
    Perhaps we could have addressed the credit ratings further, as you suggest, but if you read or have followed many of our previous bond articles (and many have been written), it becomes very repetitive and plain to readers that we do not think that the credit rating agencies always "get it right." (Perhaps you think they've proven otherwise.)

    We do endeavor to honestly and realistically present why we think a particular issue offers a superior return relative to the risks that WE can identify, not merely what someone else thinks of it. Although, we do clearly make reference to the credit rating of it in the above article, we also encourage any of our clients to call us anytime they have any questions or would like additional clarification on why we might like a particular issue. To learn more about our advisory services and our global high yield income portfolio's, please call us or email us directly, at 877-359-5319 or durigcapital@gmail.com, or visit one of our websites below and sign up for our free newsletter.

  • 10.5% Yields From Petróleos De Venezuela Sinking Yankee Bonds, Average Life Oct. 2016 [View article]
    "Exporting oil is Venezuela's only lifeline to exist in their current state. Through these exports they are forced to comply with world economic rules and they have no other choice."

    Exactly. (At least for a while longer.) Kicking the can (i.e., debt) down the road is evidently something that some do with greater skill and/or more finesse than others... but 3 years is not a long distance to kick for a company with as vital to the national economy as PDVSA is, especially with as much revenue as it has. This review is strictly a financial perspective, not a political endorsement.

  • 10.5% Yields From Petróleos De Venezuela Sinking Yankee Bonds, Average Life Oct. 2016 [View article]
    To state that "Venezuela has decided to remove themselves from the world economy" is incredibly delusional, as it would mean that they keep the oil for their own use and cease all imports/exports with other nations.

  • Short-Term Fixed Income Portfolio Yields Over 9.8%? This 1-Year Review Screams Yes [View article]
    Thank you for the great question, johnorez1. It is our experience that many of the high yield debt instruments that we find and review are often perceived or thought of as being extremely difficult or even impossible for the average retail investor to acquire, which may in part help to explain why many of these various issues also appear to offer higher returns relative to the risks that can be identified. However, one of the services that we have been able to offer clients is to facilitate the purchase of these bonds through the Institutional side of various U.S. custodians, that have charged no custodial fee.

  • Harvest 8% Yields With Very Short 2-Year Yankee Bonds From Ceagro Agricola [View article]
    Thank you for the comments. It's interesting that you stated, "Misubishi is shreud, IF they back this kind of yield they should buy as much as they can back." Quite frankly, a rather similar thought had crossed my mind, and in part it is why I stated early in the article that these relatively unknown and illiquid bonds have slowly but steadily increased in price ever since the takeover deal was announced in mid-2013. As difficult as it was to acquire enough of these bonds to satisfy the demand from our clients, I would not at all be surprised to see the yield they may offer continue to move lower.

    For any updated information on Ceagro or any of our other very high yielding fixed income bonds, please visit our website and/or sign up for our free newsletter.

    Downtown Investment, we have been able to supply most, if not all of these bonds, with our clients with some denominations as low as $5,000, like we have provided and completed with Eastcomtrans LLP. We group the smaller investments into the needed much larger tranches that you cited above, this enables our clients to often achieve a significantly higher institution yields not to mention the availability, that many professionals even have issues attaining, helping them to achieve a more diversified higher income portfolio.

    Thus, all the idea posted are accessible to find our more go to: http://bond-yields.com

    I think you would like our service, as most of our clients seem elated by our hard work and service.

  • Score 8% Yields With CanWel Building Materials 3 Year Loonie Bonds [View article]
    Yep. Thanks Sharppencil.

    The bond coupon of 5.85% pays if the bond trades at a premium (say 110 or a discount of 90). So to calculate this into the ( yield to maturity) you have to subtracted the loss or add the gain of principle made and divide it over the lifetime of the bond.

    In this case because of the discount from par (par means 100) it increases the overall yield some.

    I hope this helps

  • Ring Up 10.75% Yields With 4+ Year Rolta Yankee Bonds [View article]
    Hi Kruegerkurtis.

    Great question

    The investor gets back par value or $1,000 per bond.

    Dear Elliot:

    That would be true if the revenues were only coming in the local currency only. Rolta is more of a global service provider, with relationships with Oracle and SAP to name a few, so it would be very easy for them to hedge their US dollar income stream with the US dollar bonds, as most multinational corps due, and greatly reduce/hedge the currency risk.

    I hope this helps
