We recently explored positions for capital preservation as the market volatility rolls on as of late! Here's a sneak peek of just a small portion of the piece:

Cash Alternatives - (SPTS) And (MINT)

Starting with some basic "cash alternatives". SPDR Portfolio Short Term Treasury ETF (SPTS). This is just a basic ETF that invests in U.S. Treasuries that have a remaining maturity between 1 and 3 years. The shorter duration of the ETF should help to reduce volatility as well. The fund's expense ratio comes in at 0.06%. Total assets of the fund are $1,575.85 million.

SPTS does pay a monthly dividend, with the most recent at $0.0557 per share, this rate varies monthly. As interest rates were rising, the payout was climbing, as was expected. However, the opposite is now true. As the Fed is decreasing their target rate, Treasury yields will fall. Additionally, the fact that U.S. Treasuries have been being bid up (thus lowering yield) will also negatively affect their payout going forward.


Data by YCharts

Similarly, PIMCO Enhanced Short Maturity Active ETF (MINT) can also be used as a "cash alternative". With MINT they are invested in a "broad range of high-quality short-term instruments." The effective maturity is currently at just 0.28 years. The fund has an expense ratio of 0.42% and total assets over $12 billion.

For a more in-depth analysis of MINT, members can read Stanford Chemist's prior coverage.

MINT also offers investors a monthly dividend. The current dividend is $0.23 and they have been paying out this same rate for this whole year. They had previously varying payments similarly to SPTS so it would be interesting if they can continue with more consistency.

These are two examples of ultra-conservative/capital preservation choices. I would be looking to hold for a relatively short period of time, as a way to store some cash until better opportunities present themselves.

To increase the risk just ever so slightly, we can look at a Municipal bond CEFs. This will give us a larger yield but of course, the risk goes up too. Except, I believe that an investor can have a more permanent place in their portfolio for Munis. This is because they can be quite attractive due to their federally tax-free distributions and as a diversifier in an investor's portfolio.

What makes U.S. Treasuries one of the safest investment in the world? The fact that they are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, and the full power of taxation on its citizens!
