Yearning for Yields and Earnings
Jul 28, 2023
Check out the current yields to maturities on bonds. The numbers are all annualized:
Yields drop with longer durations. Generally, longer durations have higher yields (to compensate for the greater risk). But that is not the case in this market.
Muni Bonds have considerably lower yields. This is because they are tax-except. But what looks unusual right now is that some munis have comparable yields to corporate bonds.
The Corporate Bond with a 1.9% yield. This is probably due to the illiquidity of the market.
We continue to lean toward the market with its abundant opportunities in equities. If you choose to invest in bonds, opt for those with shorter durations. For interest-rate products offering the "most bang for the buck," those shorter-duration CDs would be our top pick.
