This video is one part of BondSavvy's 10-part video "The Crash Course on Corporate Bond Investing." The full Crash Course video is included with a subscription to BondSavvy https://www.bondsavvy.com/corporate-bond-investment-picks or can be bought on its own here https://www.bondsavvy.com/a-la-carte/corporate-bond-investing-101. This video explains the differences between interest rate risk and credit risk and how you can factor this into your next corporate bond investment. Many investors only invest in investment-grade bonds because they are afraid of the default risk of high-yield (or below investment grade) bonds. The challenge with this thinking is that investment-grade bonds often have longer durations (or time until maturity) and are therefore more sensitive to changes in interest rates. To alleviate these risks, it's important for investors to consider both investment-grade and non-investment-grade corporate bonds. You will learn the following by watching this video: * Difference between investment-grade corporate bonds and high-yield corporate bonds * Difference in default rates between investment-grade corporate bonds and high-yield corporate bonds * How bond prices are quoted * How owning high-yield corporate bonds can help reduce investors' interest rate risk * Why shorter-dated bonds are less sensitive to changes in interest rates * What happens to bond prices when interest rates increase?

What is CORPORATE BOND? What does CORPORATE BOND mean? CORPORATE BOND meaning - CORPORATE BOND definition - CORPORATE BOND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A corporate bond is a bond issued by a corporation in order to raise financing for a variety of reasons such as to ongoing operations, M&A, or to expand business. The term is usually applied to longer-term debt instruments, with maturity of at least one year. Corporate debt instruments with maturity shorter than one year are referred to as commercial paper. The term "corporate bond" is not strictly defined. Sometimes, the term is used to include all bonds except those issued by governments in their own currencies. In this case governments issuing in other currencies (such as the country of Mexico issuing in US dollars) will be included. The term sometimes also encompasses bonds issued by supranational organizations (such as European Bank for Reconstruction and Development). Strictly speaking, however, it only applies to those issued by corporations. The bonds of local authorities (municipal bonds) are not included. Corporate bonds trade in decentralized, dealer-based, over-the-counter markets. In over-the-counter trading dealers act as intermediaries between buyers and sellers. Corporate bonds are sometimes listed on exchanges (these are called "listed" bonds) and ECNs. However, vast majority of trading volume happens over-the-counter. By far the largest market for corporate bonds is in corporate bonds denominated in US Dollars. US Dollar corporate bond market is the oldest, largest, and most developed. As the term corporate bond is not well defined, the size of the market varies according to who is doing the counting, but it is in the $5 to $6 trillion range. The second largest market is in Euro denominated corporate bonds. Other markets tend to be small by comparison and are usually not well developed, with low trading volumes. Many corporations from other countries issue in either US Dollars or Euros. Foreign corporates issuing bonds in the US Dollar market are called Yankees and their bonds are Yankee bonds. Corporate bonds are divided into two main categories High Grade (also called Investment Grade) and High Yield (also called Non-Investment Grade, Speculative Grade, or Junk Bonds) according to their credit rating. Bonds rated AAA, AA, A, and BBB are High Grade, while bonds rated BB and below are High Yield. This is a significant distinction as High Grade and High Yield bonds are traded by different trading desks and held by different investors. For example, many pension funds and insurance companies are prohibited from holding more than a token amount of High Yield bonds (by internal rules or government regulation). The distinction between High Grade and High Yield is also common to most corporate bond markets. The coupon (i.e. interest payment) is usually taxable for the investor. It is tax deductible for the corporation paying it. For US Dollar corporates, the coupon is almost always semi annual, while Euro denominated corporates pay coupon quarterly. The coupon can be zero. In this case the bond, a zero-coupon bond, is sold at a discount (i.e. a $100 face value bond sold initially for $80). The investor benefits by paying $80, but collecting $100 at maturity. The $20 gain (ignoring time value of money) is in lieu of the regular coupon. However, this is rare for corporate bonds. Some corporate bonds have an embedded call option that allows the issuer to redeem the debt before its maturity date. These are called callable bonds. A less common feature is an embedded put option that allows investors to put the bond back to the issuer before its maturity date. These are called putable bonds. Both of these features are common to the High Yield market. High Grade bonds rarely have embedded options. A straight bond that is neither callable nor putable is called a bullet bond.

Firms frequently pay to have their debt rated. The two leading bond-rating firms are Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s (S&P). The debt ratings are an assessment of the creditworthiness of the corporate issuer. The definitions of creditworthiness used by Moody’s and S&P are based on how likely the firm is to default and the protection creditors have in the event of a default. It is important to recognize that bond ratings are concerned only with the possibility of default. Earlier, we discussed interest rate risk, which we defined as the risk of a change in the value of a bond resulting from a change in interest rates. Bond ratings do not address this issue. As a result, the price of a highly rated bond can still be quite volatile. The highest rating a firm’s debt can have is AAA or Aaa, and such debt is judged to be the best quality and to have the lowest degree of risk. For example, the 100-year BellSouth issue we discussed earlier was rated AAA. This rating is not awarded very often: As of 2014, only four nonfinancial U.S. companies had AAA ratings. AA or Aa ratings indicate very good quality debt and are much more common. A large part of corporate borrowing takes the form of low-grade, or “junk,” bonds. If these low-grade corporate bonds are rated at all, they are rated below investment grade by the major rating agencies. Investment-grade bonds are bonds rated at least BBB by S&P or Baa by Moody’s. Rating agencies don’t always agree. To illustrate, some bonds are known as “crossover” or “5B” bonds. The reason is that they are rated triple-B (or Baa) by one rating agency and double-B (or Ba) by another, a “split rating.” For example, in March 2014, real estate investment company Omega Healthcare Investors sold an issue of 10-year notes rated BBB– by S&P and Ba1 by Moody’s. A bond’s credit rating can change as the issuer’s financial strength improves or deteriorates. For example, in January 2014, Moody’s cut the bond rating on PlayStation 4 manufacturer Sony from Baa3 to Ba1, lowering the company’s bond rating from investment grade to junk bond status. Bonds that drop into junk territory like this are called fallen angels. Although sales of the new PS4 were a positive factor noted by Moody’s, the rating agency felt that the majority of Sony’s core business such as TVs, mobile phones, digital cameras, and personal computers faced difficult times ahead. Credit ratings are important because defaults really do occur, and when they do, investors can lose heavily. For example, in 2000, AmeriServe Food Distribution, Inc., which supplied restaurants such as Burger King with everything from burgers to giveaway toys, defaulted on $200 million in junk bonds. After the default, the bonds traded at just 18 cents on the dollar, leaving investors with a loss of more than $160 million. Even worse in AmeriServe’s case, the bonds had been issued only four months earlier, thereby making AmeriServe an NCAA champion. Although that might be a good thing for a college basketball team such as the University of Kentucky Wildcats, in the bond market it means “No Coupon At All,” and it’s not a good thing for investors.

High Yield Corporate Bonds - An Investment Often Overlooked
Views: 735 TheStreet: Investing Strategies
http://goo.gl/3wDE5i Are we seeing the shake-up of the corporate bond world? Saxo's Peter Garnry thinks so and points to MarketAxess Holdings Inc -- an electronic trading platform for investment grade corporate bonds and the high yield variety. Garnry points out that in the past the market was very closed with little transparency. If an investor wanted to get a quote, only six major banks in London could provide them. Now he says that business model is being disrupted by the likes of MarketAxess. The platform is able to get quotes from around 400 different dealers increasing liquidity. Peter Garnry says there are parallels between the corporate bond market now and the equity market 20 years ago. He says that once it goes electronic it becomes more transparent and competitive. MarketAxess has some big backers including Wells Fargo & Company which owns 9.5 percent, Blackrock which holds nine percent and Vanguard which has six percent. The company has made around USD 250 million in revenue over the last 12 months and is growing between 18 and 20 percent a year. Garnry believes it will continue to do so for the next decade or so. He notes, however, that some investors may think they're paying too much for shares in the company. But he thinks it's a fair valuation because of the platform's future potential. This is a long-term investment.

https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Depending on your stage of life or the asset allocation in your portfolio, bonds may be a solid choice to provide fixed-income stability and a hedge against more risky equity investments. (See also: 6 Asset Allocation Strategies That Work.) Interest rates have been historically low for many years, making the gold standard, U.S. treasuries, less attractive. That's where investment-grade corporate bonds come in. Corporate bonds offer significantly higher yield in many cases, without an equally significant bump in risk. Yes, corporations do go bankrupt on rare occasions, but investment-grade bonds focus on companies with excellent credit ratings and very low risk of default. (See also: How to Invest in Corporate Bonds.) The problem is that picking institutional bonds is a skill best left to experts, and their fees can easily gobble up gains. Fortunately, there are a number of high-quality investment-grade corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are comparatively inexpensive and highly liquid. You also avoid the market-timing mistakes that so commonly befall amateur investors. Most investors should view bonds and bond ETFs as a strategic asset – a buy-and-hold investment that serves a specific purpose in their overall asset allocation. (See also: Evaluating Bond Funds: Keep It Simple.) If you're looking for a few good corporate bond options to round out your portfolio, here are a few ETFs that rise above their peers. All year-to-date (YTD) performance figures are based on the period of Jan. 1, 2017, through July 14, 2017, unless otherwise noted. Funds were selected on the basis of a combination of assets under management (AUM) and overall performance. All figures are as of July 15, 2017. iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) Issuer: BlackRock Assets Under Management: $36 billion YTD Performance: 4.52% Expense Ratio: 0.15% This is the largest of the corporate bond ETFs and has returned nearly 5.56% since its inception in 2002. The fund tracks the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, investing roughly 90% of its assets into securities in the index, with the balance in cash funds. There are currently 1,691 holdings, heavily tilted toward the banking and consumer non-cyclical sectors. Top issuers include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS). LQD's low expense ratio and solid performance figures make it an attractive choice. One-year, three-year and five-year returns are 0.28%, 3.72% and 3.68%, respectively. (See also: Don't Doubt the Data: Bond ETFs Will Keep Growing.) Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH) Issuer: Vanguard Assets Under Management: $19.93 billion YTD Performance: 1.90% Expense Ratio: 0.07% Short-term bonds generally mature within one to five years, and yields are lower than those of their longer-term cousins.

1/4/2018 Webcast: Our new leaders look ahead to 2018 Hear what the expectations are for bonds in today's market climate. Important information All investing is subject to risk, including possible loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments. High-yield bonds generally have medium- and lower-range credit quality ratings and are therefore subject to a higher level of credit risk than bonds with higher credit quality ratings. For more information about Vanguard funds, visit https://vgi.vg/2G1dTre to obtain a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus.

Sub Headline: Rating the Risk Against the Yield Reward Synopsis: When a corporation wants to raise money, it can do so by offering an equity position in the company through stocks or create a form of debt called a bond. Stocks generally receive more press from the mainstream financial media, and corporate bonds seem to receive little attention. There are a plethora of bond mutual funds and ETFs on the market. The average investor generally buys bond funds for their portfolio rather than individual corporate-issued bonds. Content: Sometimes bond mutual funds and ETF holdings can give you a sense of what professional money mangers are buying and the individual bond performance in side the fund. Over the last five years, high-risk corporate bond funds have returned 6.5 to 8.33 percent,1 but the risk is not for the faint of heart. Low to below-average risk corporate bond funds have retuned 1.76 to 3.13 percent1 over the same period. There will always be outliers in reviews like this, but this gives you a little insight to the corporate bond fund market. These returns are not net of fees, so you need to investigate fund costs before moving forward. The average 5-year bank certificate of the deposit is paying around 2.25 percent and FDIC insured (depending upon the amount and how the account is titled.) Five-year fixed annuity rates are averaging 3 percent. The annuity contracts are only as good as the insurance company issuing the policy. There are several rating services available to review the financial strength of the insurance company issuing the contract you’re considering. Keep in mind bank and annuity rates are generally net of fees. But, if you have risk tolerance for the market exposure to capture potential higher returns, then corporate bond funds and ETFs could be a strategy for income. Watch the interview with investment advisor representative Dan Stockemer addressing corporate bonds. Some investors appreciate owning stocks, or in this case bonds, direct from the corporation and love the feel of certificate in their hands. There are basically three types of corporate bonds: mortgage bonds, debentures, convertible bonds and commercial paper. Physical assets like real estate and equipment generally secure mortgage bonds. Debentures are secured only be the good faith and credit of the corporate issuer. Convertible bonds can generally be exchanged into a specific number of shares in common stock. The play here is the convertible bondholder has an expectation the underlying common stock will appreciate over time. Commercial paper is essentially unsecured short-term “loans” (30-90 days) to finance a company’s immediate needs. Rating services monitor the financial strength of a corporate and their ability to pay back their bonds. It’s in your interest to engage an experienced financial planner familiar with the bond market who can offer suitable recommendations based on your goals and risk tolerance. 1 Morningstar Corporate Bond Funds 5-Year Return, 02/21/16 Syndicated financial columnist Steve Savant interviews investment advisor representative Dan Stockemer on money topics that need addressing.

Trade bonds free for 60 days using TD Ameritrade: http://bit.ly/td-ameritrade Join us in the discussion on InformedTrades: http://www.informedtrades.com/2005065-intro-bond-ratings-how-use-them.html KEY POINTS 1. Bond ratings are a way to assess the default risk of a bond. Default risk is the risk that the bond issuer will not be able to pay back the full coupon and principal obligations of the bond they issued. 2. There are three agencies that collectively account for 90% of the market for credit ratings: Standard & Poor's, Moody's, and Fitch Ratings. Of the three, S&P and Moody's account for 40% each; Fitch is a minority player whose primarily role is to serve as the tie-breaker of sorts when S&P and Moody's issue conflicting ratings. 3. A bond is considered investment grade or IG if its credit rating is BBB- or higher by Standard & Poor's or Baa3 or higher by Moody's. Generally they are bonds that are judged by the rating agency as likely enough to meet payment obligations that banks are allowed to invest in them. A bond's yield is typically inversely related to its rating; in other words, bonds with lower ratings have higher yields. 4. Bond rating agencies have come under considerable criticism in the years since the financial crisis of 2008. Agencies collectively failed to identify credit securities that were at high default risk, and have been sued for their actions. That agencies derive their revenue from governments and corporations that pay them for ratings has also led many to question their integrity and objectivity. 5. In spite of the increase in skepticism regarding the objectivity and competence of the credit ratings agencies, changes in bond ratings can and do impact bond prices, often considerably. As such, investors may wish to factor in ratings into their analysis and portfolio decisions using bond screeners.

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.

https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The corporate bond market is one of the largest and most liquid of the financial markets. Corporate bonds can be appealing for many reasons, as they are generally considered safer than stocks and they often provide higher returns than government bonds. However, until recently, investing in the corporate bond market was a more difficult task for individual investors. This has changed, with the introduction of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) focused on corporate bonds. This article will focus upon the corporate bond market and whether corporate bond ETFs are an attractive option for individual investors. (For background reading, check out our tutorials on Bond Basics and Advanced Bond Concepts.) Tutorial: ETF Investing Corporate Bond Market CharacteristicsCorporate bonds are issued by companies ranging from the largest and most creditworthy to smaller and more speculative firms. One of the defining features of corporate bonds is that they carry more default risk than many other types of bonds. This increased default possibility, known as credit risk, means that investors in corporate bonds are required to do significant credit research prior to purchasing securities. (Learn more in Opportunistic Credit Investing.) Corporate bonds are also analyzed by credit rating agencies, such as Moody's and S&P. These rating agencies assign credit ratings to corporate issuers. This rating is one of the most important factors in analyzing corporate bonds, and can serve as a starting point for analyzing the corporate bond market. Standard & Poor's ratings range from AAA to D - securities rated above BB are considered investment grade securities, while those with lower ratings are referred to as high yield (junk) securities. Generally speaking, the higher the rating the more creditworthy the company. While credit ratings can serve as an excellent starting point for analysis, successful investors go beyond the ratings and analyze the underlying fundamentals of the company. By doing significant additional research on corporate bond issues, investors can be very successful over the long run.Why Invest in Corporate Bonds?Because they are generally considered riskier than many other types of bonds, corporate bonds provide higher returns. This makes them attractive to investors willing to accept a little more risk. At the same time, corporate bonds are considered safer than common stocks, because in the corporate structure of a company, bondholders receive priority over stockholders in the event of a corporate bankruptcy. Therefore, corporate bonds occupy an interesting niche - providing higher returns than government bonds with greater safety than stocks. Finally, because they are not perfectly correlated with stocks, government bonds or any other asset class, corporate bonds provide a means of bringing additional diversification to a portfolio.

Although bonds normally promise a fixed flow of income, this does not mean that they are riskless investments. Although U.S. government bonds are treated as risk-free, this is not the case for corporate bonds. If a company goes bankrupt then the bondholders will not receive the payments that they have been promised and therefore there is some uncertainty surrounding future bond payments. This uncertainty is called default risk. The default risk is measured by Moody's Investors Services, Standard & Poor's Corporation, and Fitch Investors Service. All three of these entities provide financial information on firms as well as well as ratings on corporate and municipal bonds. Investment Grade Bonds Bonds that are rated BBB or above by Standard & Poor's, or Baa or above by Moody's are called investment grade bonds. Speculative Grade or Junk Bonds Bonds that are rated BB or lower by Standard and Poor's, Ba or lower by Moody's, or bonds that are unrated are considered junk bonds or speculative grade bonds. Bond rating agencies use financial ratios to grade bonds. The key ratios used are show below as follows Coverage ratios Leverage ratio Liquidity ratios Profitability ratios Cash flow-to-debt ratio https://www.youtube.com/user/Subjectmoney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a7b8v6Mz7A

NUVEEN'S TONY RODRIGUEZ LIKES FINANCIAL CORPORATE BONDS ANCHOR (OFF-CAMERA) ENGLISH SAYING: On the investment grade side, in terms of corporates, what do you like on the credit quality? What's the best spot to be in when you look at credit quality? TONY RODGRIGUEZ, CO-HEAD, FIXED INCOME, NUVEEN ASSET MGMT., (ENGLISH) SAYING: Sure. When we look at investment grade, we do think that kind of in that A and BBB areas or the lower end of investment grade is one of the most attractive places. And within the sector allocation, we still like financials. Financials have done quite well over the last couple of years. They have now finally gotten to where we expected them to get which was trading back through below industrial credits. And we think that will continue. So we think they'll continue to perform reasonably well because a lot of the changes that have gone on from a regulatory standpoint have all been supportive of credit quality with increased capital levels and quality of capital and greater liquidity requirements. That's all helped the credit quality. So we still think that that's a reasonable place to try to find some additional income versus those investors who might be sitting in cash earning zero or sitting in treasuries where again, we think that's a relatively overvalued asset class and could generate some negative returns over the next few quarters for investors. ANCHOR (OFF-CAMERA) ENGLISH SAYING: And is there anything beyond financials in particular, sector-wise, that you guys like? TONY RODGRIGUEZ, CO-HEAD, FIXED INCOME, NUVEEN ASSET MGMT., (ENGLISH) SAYING: We still like some of what we would call kind of the more economically-sensitive sectors of the market because while our expectations is not that growth will surprise in terms of a dramatic upside, we do think we'll see continued kind of solid kind of 2.5% to 3% growth for the US. And in that environment, we think some of the more economically-sensitive sectors should continue to outperform the more conservative areas of the market. ANCHOR (OFF-CAMERA) E...

http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/municipal-bond-investment Municipal Bond Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Municipal bond investment may be an attractive option for investors in the coming year. When the Fed eventually cuts its quantitative easing stimulus plan rates will go up. That will make bonds attractive. However, with higher interest rates come higher taxes. Municipal bonds have the advantage of not carrying a Federal Tax burden. Municipal bond investment may be a good conservative version of today's value investing. Municipal Bonds A municipal bond is issued by a municipality. That is local government or government agencies, not the state or federal government. Issuers can include school districts, airports, utilities, and more. The bonds can be a general obligation of the municipality to repay or may be tied to an income stream such as taxes assessed at an airport, or property tax assessed to support a school district. What makes municipal bonds attractive to those in high tax brackets is that their interest is typically exempt from federal taxes and often free of state or local taxes as well. When an investor looks at the return from taxable corporate bonds or dividends on dividend stocks he or she will calculate the return on investment after taxes when comparing the investment to a municipal bond investment. Safety of Municipal Bond Investment Municipal bond investment is historically pretty safe. That should be said as the headlines are full of news on huge state and local deficits. However, over the last decades the default rate on municipal bonds has been less than 1% while the default rate on corporate bonds has been over 10%. Nevertheless, municipal bond investment in more than one municipality in order to balance risk is not a bad idea. A fundamental analysis of municipal bonds should include a number of specifics. Not all municipal bonds are tax exempt! A bond offering will typically come with certification by a law firm that the bonds are tax exempt and to what degree. If you as the investor do not live in the municipality or state where the bonds are issued you will probably not be eligible for a local or state tax exempt status, if it is part of the bond. Bonds are rated by agencies such as Moody's or Standard and Poor's. To the extent that there is a risk of default it will be wise to make sure that the bonds have an investment grade rating. As of 2008 there had never been a default on a Moody's or Standard and Poor's Aaa/AAA municipal bond or a Standard and Poor's AA rated bond. Investment grade municipals in general have a historic rate of default of less than a fifth of a percent. As with all investments the investor should sit down with paper and pencil (or at the computer) and calculate the return on investment of municipal bonds versus other investments considering the relatively low level of risk involved. Depending upon if the stimulus program goes away rates may or may not rise. If so municipal bond investment may be an attractive vehicle for those soon to be paying higher taxes. http://youtu.be/x4jjzIC7gIs
