  • A Romney Win May Turn Corporate Bond Investors Into Losers [View article]
    My view is that the article has everything backwards. Continuing on our current Greek like path is an absolute recipe for economic disaster.

  • Christie And Obama Show What Investors Really Want From Washington [View article]
    My view is that there is a spending problem, not an income problem. I do not know any investor who wants to pay more taxes so that they can have less for their families and give the government more to waste.

  • Protected Principal Retirement Strategy: Paddling Upstream [View article]
    I have held MEMP and CLMT. I agree with your PPR stratgey, and use only the dividends and interest from my investments. I use those funds only going into the next year. The longer you can employ that approach, the longer your funds will last into the future in the event of an emergency. However, I use below par, high yielding preferreds, such as NRF-C yielding 8.9%, for diversification. I also use high yield, below par, short term bonds to increase yield and also provide some additional diversification. Please keep your excellent articles coming.

  • Extract Over 7.5% Yields From Vedanta Resources PLC [View article]
    Thanks for your articles. I am long STON, and some others. However, I do not pay so much over par as your latest security. In my opinion, that practice is not a good idea for higher yield bonds, and adds more risk to total yield being obtained.

  • As Bond Yields Continue To Drop, Investors Should Start Looking Elsewhere [View article]
    I suggest not looking elsewhere, but rather drilling down deeper to find good yielding shorter term bonds. Many of them can be mined on a FINRA bond search below par,and polished by some research to justfy the credit risk of only a few years until maturity. The short term curtails the rate risk, and the availability of lower rates for refinancing reduces the risk of defaults. Happy Hunting.
