    I have the highest respect for this author but the lack of a response is telling. I have researched these funds numerous times...they appear simple but then questions always arise. I do own one just to see how it plays out. If you have the funds individual corporates are the best, but of course they are paying nothing right now. I would really like to see some commentary addressing your points.

  • The Bond Market Explained For CNBC [View article]
    I think there is valuable information here. But it is written in such a manner that my simple mind cannot comprehend it....the SA editors are slacking off me thinks.

    Hopefully someone will synthesize the article into an actionable or useful instrument.

  • Kinder Morgan: Rich Kinder Backs Up The Truck [View article]
    I want to buy. But the momentum has been declining for a year and it appears a turnaround is not imminent. I can see no advantage to buying this right now. The direction is down. I hope someone can explain why this is a buy.

  • A Primer On Exchange Traded Debt [View article]
    Very useful information for income investors. Look forward to your future articles. In this interest rate environment I would suggest you stress the risk of higher rates....I think most would agree rates are going higher as soon as next year. And I doubt most buyers will hold to maturity.

    Should we plan on holding to maturity? If so at what price would it redeem?

  • Investing In A Rising Interest Rate Environment [View article]
    Excellent point Be Here Now. I do own floating rate for the CURRENT dividends but readers must be aware they are incurring significant credit risk.

  • How Much Can You Make From A Guggenheim BulletShares High Yield Bond ETF? [View article]
    Thanks for this article. There is very little coverage of the defined maturity segment. If a buyer wants these, I suggest buying at release ie $25.00

  • Investing Irrespective Of 'Tapirus Bernankis' [View article]
    So do you think their newer BSJJ and BSJK are buys? I have been looking at these for months and still do not understand the downside risks. If rates skyrocket, do the two mentioned above tumble? The selling point seems to be that the bonds will be sold at par and we get at least the investment back. Confusing.

  • Annaly Capital: It Just Might Be Time To Load Up On Shares [View article]
    Excellent work. Hope you send this to those chatterboxes on CNBC...altho we all know they have to continue with the positive spin to keep the advertisers happy.

    I tend to think Bernnie as a lame duck will do nothing. Do you own NLY...not sure where to find your current portfolio.

  • Why Falling Prices Should Be Welcomed By Preferred Stock Investors [View article]

  • Why Falling Prices Should Be Welcomed By Preferred Stock Investors [View article]
    I don't see anything confusing about it. A rising rate environment hurts preferreds. Even the floating rates are getting pummeled. I feel like a fool in having purchased this crap and now I have to hold them, or take a loss....at least they will be called eventually and we can get our money back. The article above is very misleading to people who don't understand the current market situation: preferrreds will eventually be a good buy but it is certainly not NOW. The old lesson: know what you own. Gold, like GGN is going to do well and pays divis.
