    P.S. Considering this company's market cap is nearly 1 Billion in US dollars, the Seeking Alpha Editor's Note appears to be misleading and misinformed.

  • Earn 12% With These Deeply Discounted, 4-Year, MNC Investama Yankee Bonds [View article]
    Thank you for the great question. 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. Most issues that we review do not have foreign tax withholding, and the very few that have currently appear to have tax treaties that allow for a dollar for dollar tax credit against any U.S. tax obligations that are owed.

  • 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

  • Shop For 10% Yields With Alto Palermo's 2017 Yankee Bonds [View article]
    Thanks for the many questions, yes companies have glass ceilings in ratings, meaning they can only be rated as high as the country they are in, with some exceptions. (none with APSA)

    With that said Alto Palermo has very desirable financial metrics in debt, profits, and net income plus they own many trophy malls that have real underlying building and property values, even without the business. It's our opinion the country is holding back the ratings, and that's the main underlying reason the yield is so high.

    This is a company that is doing quite admirable financial on it's own merit, preforming strongly for several years, in a country that in the same time period, has been viewed, as having many major missteps. Thus, APSA business is rising against an outgoing tide (money flow) and that is very attractive to us.

    The Government of Argentina has had many issues, and those issues have had very little correlation to Palermo and their strong ongoing performance. With that said, I understand the current government is basically in a lame duck model, where the majority of voters in the major cities are voting strongly against Cristina and her hand picked henchmen.

    This means, it might flip to more of a free market model. If that happens then we could have a reversal in the money flows and the overall tide might even start rising.

    If not, we still own very strong high yielding short bond that's backed by many trophy properties, a very profitable business, with little direct comparable competition.

  • Dig Up 8.9% Yields With Berau Coal's Short 44-Month Yankee Bonds [View article]
    Thank you for your comment and apparent agreement with our basic review of Berau Coal. While only a portion of Berau Coal's business (about 15%) is intrinsic to Indonesia, the fact that China currently accounts for about 36% its export business, followed by Taiwan (18%), India (12%), Korea (10%), and Hong Kong (4%) paints a clear picture that these foreigners do indeed know how to conduct business with a company based in Indonesia. Fortunately, as bond holders, we only need to be concerned with Berau Coal's servicing its debt obligations and not with doing business in Indonesia.

  • U.S. Real Estate Opportunities Yield 5.6% With Tricon Capital's Convertible Debentures [View article]
    Thank you for your comments. We are not always aware of why you might or might not have access to a certain global bond issue through your retail broker, as we have no difficulty working as an advisor acquiring them in individual accounts for our U.S. based clients. If you continue to have this difficulty, perhaps you would find working with a "fee only" advisor that is experienced in the area of global bonds well worth the savings to you that might come with it. If you would like to learn more about our advisory services and how we help our clients achieve the institutional level yields like those we have written about, we invite you to email us or call us at the address and number below, or visit our website for more information.

  • Score 5.5% Yields With Short-Term Caterpillar Bonds In Russian Rubles [View article]
    Thank you for your question. Similar maturity CAT bonds in U.S. dollars appear to be offering about 0.4% yields, and similar maturity U.S. Treasuries appear to be offering only about 0.3%. So, perhaps an equally puzzling question to ask is why so many investors evidently consider similar maturity bonds denominated in U.S. dollars a good buy, which are likewise indicating a negative real yield (of at least negative 1%, and perhaps much greater than 1% depending on what measurement of inflation here in the U.S. is believed or taken as being real.) Given its higher yield, this bond may perform significantly better than its US dollar counterpart. Again, we see diversification away from the dollar and into various foreign denominated bonds as a logical and sound means of reducing risk against the persistant errosion of one's wealth resulting from a devaluation of the dollar when measured against other global currencies.

  • Float Your Boat With Hapag-Lloyd Yankee Bonds Yielding 7.84% [View article]
    Thanks for your questions

    1. If you did business with EXM or any other shipper, and were afraid of their bankruptcy, would you consider moving to a new vendor? I sure would. I would hate to have any of my products held up by the courts.

    2.. Less competition often equal better margins.

    Thanks again
