  • Corporate Bond Market Shenanigans And Other Articles You May Have Missed 0 comments

    If you are interested in some of my recent non-Seeking Alpha fixed-income-related articles, you can find them here. The list includes the article, "Corporate Bond Market Shenanigans You Should Know About," which describes a recent experience I had when attempting to purchase Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX) notes. There are also two articles focused on the bonds of gold miners as well as two articles focused on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). I particularly enjoyed reading some of Moody's old rating actions on Apple while preparing the article, "From Junk to Aa1 - Apple Gets a New Credit Rating." You may find it fascinating just how low of a credit rating Apple had in the 1990s. Finally, in light of JPMorgan Chase's (NYSE:JPM) redeeming eight preferred securities in recent days, I wrote the article "JP Morgan Calls Your Preferreds - What to Do with the Money Now."

    The hyperlinks in the previous paragraph will take you to the articles referenced.

    Thank you for your interest in my writings!

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Additional disclosure: I am long ABX, C, and JPM bonds. I am long gold.

    Themes: ABX, KGC, JPM, C, BK, AAPL, AGG, JNK, LQD
