I fully disagree because bonds are about to be a terrible investment in the future. Remember that bonds were called certificates of confiscation back in the 1970 due to constantly rising interest rates and inflation. As interest rates are at all time lows it might happen again. I also discuss high yield bonds or junk bonds and the risk of investing in bond ETFs. When bond yields go up, bond prices go down, it is as simple as that. Where will yields and interest rates go from now on?

The current low interest rates also present a risk that if interest rates and inflation rise in the future, then bond prices may fall and portfolios could suffer losses.

Do High Yield bonds belong in your Roth IRA? Well, if you've been following the channel you know how I feel about bonds. Not a fan. But High Yield bonds are different. They pay more. Well, there is a reason they pay more.... they are riskier. In fact, look at 2007-2009 many high yield funds were down over 40%. In this video I am going to share with you why I think if you are going to take the risk to invest in high yield bonds, you may as well just go into stocks. Stocks have performed well ahead of high yield bonds, with a similar risk. Risk being defined as price swings of the portfolio. In fact, I will show you exactly how bonds work too, in terms of your returns. One thing you have to understand is there is NO capital appreciation in bonds. None. If you get capital appreciation today, it means capital depreciation MUST happen. It's pure, basic mathematics.

The high-yield bond market has rallied again in recent months after a selloff that drove yields to their highest levels since 2011. The market was hit hard in 2015 and early 2016 by worries about slowing global growth and the collapse of energy priceswhich slammed the bonds of many oil and gas companies. Lately, growth fears have eased and oil prices have recouped some of their losses. But many investors remain concerned about other potential threats to high-yield, including credit tightening by the Federal Reserve, prolonged weakness in emerging-market economies and the rising tide of corporate debt maturing between 2018 and 2022. Are central bank policies, including negative interest rates in Europe, supportive or hazardous for high-yield? Which industries offer the best value prospects for investors now? On this panel, leaders in high-yield and leveraged finance will share their outlooks and strategies.

And during the past several years, amid an expanding global economy, issuance volumes have hit record levels, with exciting changes in deal structures and covenant packages. This four-part multimedia series offers practical insights on high-yield debt for Asia-based issuers seeking to understand important covenants and trends. In this first video of our “High-Yield Bonds in Asia - What Every Issuer Needs to Know", partner Jason T.

High yield bond funds may not be shooting the lights out so far in 2015, but they are still a good place to be with the domestic economy growing 'modestly,' said Andy Toburen, senior portfolio manager at Chartwell Investment Partners. 'Default rates are in the 2% to 3% range which is low by historical standards and in an environment with a solid economy, reasonably low default rates and pretty good valuations, we like high yield right now,' said Toburen. The SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK), which yields just under 6%, is down slightly over 1% year-to-date and over 7% in the past 12 months. The entire high yield sector suffered in the fourth quarter of 2014 as lower oil prices dragged down the value of energy related paper. Toburen remains watchful of that particular sector. 'Certainly the lower quality, triple C rated and distressed paper, some of that is in energy and some in metals and mining, that’s an area where we would be very cautious,' said Toburen. On the flip side, lower gasoline prices have acted like a tax cut for consumers and that is why Toburen is constructive on sectors which rely on Americans opening their wallets.

Since the start of 2013, investors have poured nearly $9 billion into high-yield exchange traded funds. Gershon Distenfeld, director of high yield at AllianceBernstein, said it is clear that they should have opted for actively managed funds instead. 'The numbers tell the whole story. You don’t have to give fancy arguments. These things have been around for almost a decade and they have well underperformed the average active manager,' said Distenfeld. According to Distenfeld’s numbers, since the start of 2008, shortly after their inception, the two largest ETFs— HYG and JNK—delivered annualized returns of 6.2% and 6%, respectively, well short of the 8.3% annualized return for the Barclays US Corporate High-Yield Index. He adds that the top 20% of active high-yield mangers, as rated by Lipper, have also comfortably outperformed these two ETFs and have done it with lower volatility, as measured by risk-adjusted returns, and are not really much cheaper than active funds. 'The management fees are slightly lower. They are not the few basis points you find in the equity world. They are 40 and 50 basis point fees, but again, the numbers tell the whole story. Over eight years they have underperformed a high yield index by about 200 basis points and some of the top-tier managers by 300 or 400 basis points.'

We ended 2018 with a cautious outlook on the bond market. Our biggest concern was that the Federal Reserve’s series of interest rate hikes would reduce demand for bonds, especially bonds in the riskier segments of the market like high-yield bonds; but recently the Federal Reserve has indicated that they’re unlikely to raise interest rates again in the near-term. Does that mean we should throw caution to the wind? Kathy Jones takes a look on this episode of Bond Market Today.

Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is a “Junk Bond” A junk bond is exactly the same as a regular bond. Junk bonds are an IOU from a corporation or organization or country that states the amount it will pay you back called the principal, the date it will pay you back known as the maturity date and the interest it will pay you on the borrowed money. Junk bonds differ because of their issuers' credit quality. All bonds are characterized according to this credit quality and therefore fall into one of two bond categories, investment grade and junk. These are the bonds that pay high yield to bondholders because the borrowers don't have any other option. Their credit ratings are less than pristine, making it difficult for them to acquire capital at an inexpensive cost. Junk bonds are typically rated 'BB' or lower by Standard & Poor's and 'Ba' or lower by Moody's. Junk bonds are risky investments, but have speculative appeal because they offer much higher yields than safer bonds. Companies that issue junk bonds typically have less-than-stellar credit ratings, and investors demand these higher yields as compensation for the risk of investing in them. A junk bond issued from a company that manages to turn its performance around for the better and has its credit rating upgraded will generally have a substantial price appreciation.

A default wave will soon be hitting high yield bonds and investors better be prepared for it, says Steve Blumenthal, CEO of CMG Capital. Still, Blumenthal says there is a bright side to the coming washout in junk bonds. 'The good news is that the selloff will create one of the greatest buying opportunities of a lifetime in the not too distant future. Remember the 20% yields on high yield bonds in 2008? My two cents is that the coming opportunity will be even better,' says Blumenthal. Blumenthal says tactical trend analysis enables investors to identify the primary movements in high yield bonds. His strategy is to stay invested during the up trending cycles and shorten maturities when the trend turns down. In other words, buy the iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) or the SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) when trends are turning up.

What is HIGH YIELD DEBT? What does HIGH YIELD DEBT mean? HIGH YIELD DEBT meaning - HIGH YIELD DEBT definition - HIGH YIELD DEBT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. In finance, a high-yield bond (non-investment-grade bond, speculative-grade bond, or junk bond) is a bond that is rated below investment grade. These bonds have a higher risk of default or other adverse credit events, but typically pay higher yields than better quality bonds in order to make them attractive to investors. Sometimes the company can provide new bonds as a part of yield which can only be redeemed after its expiry or maturity. The holder of any debt is subject to interest rate risk and credit risk, inflationary risk, currency risk, duration risk, convexity risk, repayment of principal risk, streaming income risk, liquidity risk, default risk, maturity risk, reinvestment risk, market risk, political risk, and taxation adjustment risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk of the market value of a bond changing due to changes in the structure or level of interest rates or credit spreads or risk premiums. The credit risk of a high-yield bond refers to the probability and probable loss upon a credit event (i.e., the obligor defaults on scheduled payments or files for bankruptcy, or the bond is restructured), or a credit quality change is issued by a rating agency including Fitch, Moody's, or Standard & Poors. A credit rating agency attempts to describe the risk with a credit rating such as AAA. In North America, the five major agencies are Standard & Poor's, Moody's, Fitch Ratings, Dominion Bond Rating Service and A.M. Best. Bonds in other countries may be rated by US rating agencies or by local credit rating agencies. Rating scales vary; the most popular scale uses (in order of increasing risk) ratings of AAA, AA, A, BBB, BB, B, CCC, CC, C, with the additional rating D for debt already in arrears. Government bonds and bonds issued by government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) are often considered to be in a zero-risk category above AAA; and categories like AA and A may sometimes be split into finer subdivisions like "AA-" or "AA+". Bonds rated BBB- and higher are called investment grade bonds. Bonds rated lower than investment grade on their date of issue are called speculative grade bonds, or colloquially as "junk" bonds. The lower-rated debt typically offers a higher yield, making speculative bonds attractive investment vehicles for certain types of portfolios and strategies. Many pension funds and other investors (banks, insurance companies), however, are prohibited in their by-laws from investing in bonds which have ratings below a particular level. As a result, the lower-rated securities have a different investor base than investment-grade bonds. The value of speculative bonds is affected to a higher degree than investment grade bonds by the possibility of default. For example, in a recession interest rates may drop, and the drop in interest rates tends to increase the value of investment grade bonds; however, a recession tends to increase the possibility of default in speculative-grade bonds.
