  • Levered Municipal Closed End Funds: A Cautionary Tale [View article]
    Hey Meredith, good job screwing up that call. Yeah, yeah, we understand that sometimes you get some calls wrong, but don't make such a big show out of it. Municipals were one of the best performing asset classes of 2011, which means you really screwed up. Just to top it off, when you said to sell them, I bought them. Thanks for the advice.

  • Junk Bond ETFs Over Equities In 2012 [View article]
    I like both JNK and HYG. I was looking to buy HYG and then ended up purchasing COY which I think has nice diversification. The only thing that scares me a bit with COY is its leverage currently at 21.73%. But it has a yield that is on par with HYG and JNK.

  • Goldman Sachs (GS) and Citigroup (C) reportedly plan to market ~$1B of bonds backed by commercial property loans as soon as next week, in what likely would be the first deal of its kind for 2012. Banks pulled back from making new loans to package into bonds in July as Europe's debt crisis roiled credit markets and sent yields soaring, but originations have since picked up.  [View news story]
    This is fantastic. I'm all for the banks creating new products. People are not being forced to buy these products so who cares if they make them. If you as an investor are willing to buy a product with out looking into it and get smoked on your investment, its your loss.

    Not sure that the first chart was the one you should post. Who cares about the 15% when ~40% of your investment just fell off the face of the earth....with in a year.
