Key Things to Know about Fixed Income ETFs | Fidelity
 
03:56
Find out more about exchange-traded funds with us at the https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/etf/overview To see more videos from Fidelity Investments, subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/fidelityinvestments Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fidelityinvestments Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/fidelity Google+: https://plus.google.com/+fidelity LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/fidelity-investments ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Fixed income can be a critical part of nearly every well-diversified portfolio. Used correctly, fixed income can add diversification and a steady source of income to any investor’s portfolio. But how do you choose the right fixed-income ETF? The key to choosing the right fixed-income ETF lies in what it actually holds. U.S. bonds or international bonds? Government securities or corporate debt? Bonds that come due in two years or 20 years? Each decision determines the level of risk you’re taking and the potential return. There are many types of risks to consider with bond investing. Let’s talk more about two in particular: Credit risk and Interest-rate risk. Determining the level of credit risk you want to assume is an important first step when choosing a fixed-income ETF. Do you want an ETF that only holds conservative bonds—like bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury? Or do you want one holding riskier corporate debt? The latter may pay you a higher interest rate, but if the company issuing the bond goes bankrupt, you’ll lose out. ETFs cover the full range of available credit. Look carefully at the credit quality composition of the ETFs underlying holdings, and don’t be lured in by promises of high yields unless you understand the risks. Bonds are funny. Intuitively, you would assume that higher interest rates are good for bondholders, as they can reinvest bond income at higher prevailing interest rates. But rising interest rates may be bad news, at least in the short term. Imagine that the government issues a 10-year bond paying an interest rate of 2%. But shortly thereafter, the U.S. Federal Reserve hikes interest rates. Now, if the government wants to issue a new 10-year bond, it has to pay 3% a year in interest. No one is going to pay the same amount for the 2% bond as the 3% bond; instead, the price of the 2% bond will have to fall to make its yield as attractive as the new, higher-yielding security. That’s how bonds work, like a seesaw: As yields rise, prices fall and vice versa. Another important measure to consider when looking at interest rate risk is duration which helps to approximate the degree of price sensitivity of a bond to changes in interest rates. The longer the duration, the more any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Conversely, the shorter the duration, the less any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Let’s review a few other considerations when looking at fixed income ETFs. First, expense ratios: Because your expected return in a bond ETF is lower than in most stock ETFs, expenses take on extra importance. Generally speaking, the lower the fees, the better. Second, tracking difference: It can be harder to run a bond index fund than an equity fund, so you may see significant variation between the fund’s performance and the index’s returns. Try to seek out funds with low levels of tracking difference, meaning they track their index well. Finally, some bonds can be illiquid. As a result, it’s extra important to look out for bond ETFs with good trading volumes and tight spreads. There are other factors to watch for too, but these are the basics. ETFs can be a great tool for accessing the bond space, but as with anything, it pays to know what you’re buying before you make the leap.

Are You Going Too Short-Term in Your Bond Portfolio?
 
04:02
With the Federal Reserve raising interest rates over the past couple of years, short-term investments like treasury bills and CDs with maturities of under a year or so have become very popular with investors, and rightly so. Investors have gravitated to the part of the market where they can get more yield with less interest rate risk over time. But one of the concerns that we have is that investors may be getting too short-term in their bond portfolios. Kathy Jones explains why in this week’s episode of Bond Market Today.

Short Term High Yield Bonds
 
04:18
The current low interest rate environment means that bond investors have to take more risk in order to gain an attractive return on their invested money. 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.

Full-time independent stock market analyst and researcher: https://sven-carlin-research-platform.teachable.com/p/stock-market-research-platform Check the comparative stock list table on my Stock market research platform under curriculum preview! I am also a book author: Modern Value Investing book: https://amzn.to/2lvfH3t More about me and some written reports at the Sven Carlin blog: https://svencarlin.com Stock market for modern value investors Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modernvalueinvesting/ Most say that a good portfolio is 60% stocks and 40% bonds and then to add on the bonds part as you age. 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?
Corporate Bond ETFs to Date  2016 Performance Review (CLY, LWC)
 
06:31
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Three months into 2016, corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are still giving investors what they need – a high-yield alternative in a low interest rate environment, and a degree of stability during a period of uncertainty in the stock market. Funds investing in investment-grade corporate bonds were mostly on the plus side year to date (YTD), with the category average up 2.59%, as of March 24, 2016. As expected, funds with longer average maturities are outperforming funds with shorter average maturities. However, shorter maturity funds are providing the stability and competitive short-term yields many investors are looking for. The largest long-term corporate bond ETF with more than $26 billion in assets under management (AUM), the iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: LQD), was up 3.7% on the year. The iShares 1-3 Year Credit Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: CSJ) was the largest short-term corporate bond ETF, with $11 billion in AUM, and it was up 0.70%. Short-term corporate bond funds are considered an ideal option during periods of rising interest rates because bonds with short maturities are rotated out for bonds with higher coupon rates. If interest rates rise as expected, short-term corporate ETFs should be a good option for investors seeking higher yields on their short-term money. Long-term corporate bond ETFs should continue to perform well, as long as interest rates don't tick up too quickly and the stock market continues to display uncertainty. The Best Performing Corporate Bond ETFs YTD in 2016 The iShares 10+ Year Credit Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: CLY) was leading the category YTD with a gain of 6.51%. The fund's objective is to replicate the performance of the Barclays U.S. Long Credit Index by investing in investment-grade U.S. corporate and U.S. government bonds with remaining maturities of more than 10 years. As of March 24, 2016, the fund had $847 million invested primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds, with smaller allocations of government and municipal bonds. The fund had returned 7.01% over the last five years and 3.76% over the last three years. Its trailing 12-month yield was 4.5%, and its expense ratio was 0.2%. As of March 24, 2016, the SPDR Barclays Long Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: LWC) had returned 5.76%, with a trailing 12-month yield of 4.67%. The fund seeks to track the performance and yield of the Barclays U.S. Long Term Corporate Bond Index, which consists of U.S. corporate bonds with maturities of 10 years or more. The fund had $133.84 million of AUM with 89.63% invested in investment-grade corporate bonds and 9.62% invested in government bonds. Over the last five years, the fund returned 7.14%, and it returned 3.79% over the last three years. The fund's expense ratio, as of March 2016, was 0.12%. The Worst Performing Corporate Bond ETFs YTD in 2016 The iShares iBonds March 2018 Term Corporate ex-Financials ETF (NYSEARCA: IBCC) had returned -0.15% YTD in 2016. Th

Top 3 Investment-Grade Corporate Bond ETFs
 
06:51
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. This fund tracks the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Corporate Bond Index and invests about 80% of its assets into securities on the benchmark index.

SCPB  SPDR Barclays Short Term Corporate Bond ETF
 
13:20
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Fixed-income securities, such as short-term corporate bonds, are a paramount aspect of investor portfolios. Corporate bonds allow investors to diversify their equity holdings and reduce the overall volatility while generating income and yield. However, corporate bonds may not be suitable for most investors who wish to generate monthly income. Corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) generate fluctuating monthly income, can serve as core holdings in an investor's portfolio and may serve as protection when the market is experiencing heightened volatility. The SPDR Barclays Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: SCPB) is a popular and efficient choice for investors who seek exposure to the corporate bond market. What It Tracks SCPB is an ETF providing investors with exposure to corporate bonds with maturities between one to three years. Corporate bonds are debt securities issued by corporations and sold to investors to raise financing for multiple aspects of the corporations, such as debt refinancing, mergers and acquisitions, operations, or expansions. As of July 31, 2015, SCPB has generated an average annualized net asset value return of 1.94% since its inception date, while its benchmark index, the Barclays U.S. 1-3 Year Corporate Bond Index, has generated returns of 2.52% over the same period. SCPB seeks to provide investment results, before fees and expenses, corresponding to the performance of its benchmark index. The Barclays U.S. 1-3 Year Corporate Bond Index is designed to track the performance of the U.S. short-term corporate bond market and is U.S. dollar-denominated. The index includes corporate issues with remaining maturities greater than or equal to one year and less than three years. It includes investment-grade bonds that must be Baa3 or higher based on Moody's credit ratings scale. The component securities included in the index must have face values greater than or equal to $250 million. How It Tracks It To achieve its investment objective, SCPB generally invests at least 80% of its total assets in the debt securities comprising its benchmark index or in securities the fund advisor considers to have similar characteristics to the characteristics of securities included in the index. As of Aug. 13, 2015, SCPB mainly allocates its funds to corporate bonds issued by companies in three sectors and is heavily weighted towards the industrial and finance sector. The fund allocates 48.49% to the industrial sector, 47.17% to the finance sector, 3.94% to the utility sector, 0.28% to cash and 0.12% to U.S. Treasury securities. SCPB has an average annual tracking error of 0.07%, while the tracking error of the asset class median is 0.26. Since the fund passively invests in corporate bonds by sampling the index, which involves approximating the full index rather than holding all securities comprising the index, this may cause the fund to experience tracking errors. SCPB's operation expenses and transaction costs when buying and sel

ETF Flows  Short-Term Corporate Bond ETFs Are Winning Assets (VCSH, BSCI)
 
07:10
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Short-term corporate bonds have relatively low durations that range between one and five years. As the U.S. Federal Reserve is likely to continue raising interest rates in 2016, short-term corporate bonds may prove to be a better option from a volatility standpoint compared to long-term corporate bonds, since short-term corporate bonds are not as sensitive to interest rate changes. According to the Investment Company Institute, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) amassed about $2 trillion in combined assets at the end of January 2016. Among all types of ETFs, bond funds experienced the largest increase in assets under management (AUM) in January 2016, as a result of capital inflows, capital appreciation and coupon payments. As of March 4, 2016, most of the ETFs in the short-term corporate bond space continued to show large year-to-date (YTD) capital inflows with a few ETFs being an exception, such as the SPDR Barclays Short Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: SCPB) with $94 million YTD capital outflows, the Guggenheim BulletShares 2016 Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: BSCG) with $49 million YTD capital outflows and the iShares Barclays 1-3 Year Credit Bond Fund ETF (NYSEARCA: CSJ) with YTD capital outflows of $26 million. Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF The Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (NASDAQ: VCSH) witnessed YTD capital inflows of $370 million as of March 4, 2016. The fund was created in November 2009 to track the investment results of the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Corporate Bond Index, which is composed of investment-grade corporate bonds with maturities ranging between one and five years. The fund gathered $11.5 billion in AUM and had 1,994 bonds in its portfolio. VCSH is heavily tilted toward corporate bonds issued by industrial companies with 54% allocation and financial services firms with 40.4% allocation. The fund's holdings are high-quality securities with average credit ratings of A, average maturities of 2.9 years and average durations of 2.7 years. VCSH has demonstrated a 12-month trailing yield of 1.99% and a 30-day Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yield of 2.29%. As of March 17, 2016, the fund has generated a YTD gain of 0.96% and a one-year gain of 1.48%. VCSH showed annual average returns of 1.66% for the three-year period and 2.57% for the five-year period. The fund was one of the lowest-cost ETFs with an expense ratio of 0.10%. Morningstar awarded the fund a five-star overall rating in the short-term bond category. Guggenheim BulletShares 2018 Corporate Bond ETF The Guggenheim BulletShares 2018 Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: BSCI) experienced YTD capital inflows of $63 million as of March 4, 2016. The ETF was started in March 2012 to track the performance of the NASDAQBulletShares USD Corporate Bond 2018 Index, which represents a held-to-maturity portfolio of investment-grade corporate bonds that produce an average portfolio maturity in the year of 2018. The fund had $834.4 million in AUM and 324 securitie

Is It a Bad Idea to Buy Bonds When Interest Rates Are Going Up?
 
06:12
http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 Here’s something I bet you didn't know. The U.S. stock market, the size of the U.S. stock market is about $30 trillion. If you added up the value of all publicly traded stocks in the U.S., the market value of all those companies would come up to around $30 trillion, but what about bonds? Bonds are hardly ever mentioned or talked about in the financial media, but I bet you might be surprised to discover that the U.S. bond market is actually much bigger than the stock market. The U.S. bond market is estimated to be $40 trillion or more. That's right, the bond market is actually larger than the stock market and yet the financial media has almost all their attention and therefore our attention on the stock market. So what about bonds? Should you be buying bonds when interest rates are going up? You may have heard that when interest rates go up, bond values go down, which is true. Think of a seesaw or a teeter totter, the end that goes up is interest rates and the end that goes down is the underlying value of the bond. Bonds by the way are nothing more than a loan to a company or government or government agency. Typically bonds pay their interest twice a year, every six months, and when the loan comes due, they have a maturity date which could range anywhere from 90 days to 30 years, when you get your money back. If you look at long term returns of investments, let's say 15 year timeframe or longer, then it's no secret stocks have outperformed bonds by a large, large margin; so if stocks do better than bonds over the long term why not just have all of your money in stocks? Well the problem is while stocks tend to deliver nice, long term returns, but the short term oh, that could be a whole other story. Stocks on the short term can be extremely volatile. Just look what happened in the financial crisis of 2008. The S&P 500, the 500 largest publically traded companies in America, lost about 38% in value. So $100,000 in the S&P 500 at the end of 2008 was now worth $62,000. Ouch! That's a lot of short term volatility which tends to make you and I uncomfortable, to say the least. So how do we dampen or minimize that volatility? Imagine you have a sailboat and you have entered it into a race. One way to make your sailboat go faster is to make it lighter. But the lighter the sailboat, the more likely it is to capsize with a gust of wind. To prevent that you add weight or ballast to the sailboat. That slows the speed of the boat down but it reduces the odds of the boat capsizing and sinking. This is how you should think of bonds in your overall investment strategy. They are going to slow down the overall growth of your investment accounts but they are there to keep you from capsizing, to keep you from sinking during short-term periods of market volatility. So the answer to the question should you buy bonds, even when interest rates are going up, as a long term investor, the answer is a qualified yes, and here's what I mean by that. If you buy individual bonds and hold the bond until it matures or is called away early by the issuer then you'll receive the interest and get all your money back when the bond matures. The value of the bond can and will fluctuate while you own it, but it doesn't affect you if you hold it to maturity because then you get all your money back. This is why it's important to own individual bonds, especially in a rising interest rate environment, you don't lose money if you hold the bond until maturity. Why not just use a bond mutual fund? The problem with a bond mutual fund is it doesn't have a maturity date. People are constantly adding or withholding money from the mutual fund itself and typically at the wrong time. In a rising interest rate market, a lot of people in bond mutual funds take some or all of their money out of the mutual fund which forces the mutual fund manager to sell bonds even if they didn't want to. They have to generate the money to pay back the investors and that could drive the value or the price of bonds down even further. Ideally, you want to use individual bonds so you know for sure you get your money back when the bond matures. If you have a small account, and I would say a small account would be $200,000 or less, then you may not have enough money to properly diversify into individual bonds and you may have to still use bond mutual funds and if that's the case in a rising interest rate market you want to focus on short term bond funds or floating rate bond funds. Buying individual bonds as part of your investment strategy will help you move one step closer to experiencing your version of an incredible retirement doing what you want, when you want.

Don't Underestimate the Risks in Bond ETFs | Skinny on Options: Data Science
 
18:39
With implied volatility so low, many traders are sitting on their hands waiting for volatility to revert back to its historical average. Meanwhile, many investors are looking toward bonds and bond ETFs for higher yields. But Dr. Data (Michael Rechenthin, PhD) explains how these products may not be as safe as it seems especially if interest rates change. Tom, Tony and Dr. Data walk us through the current yields of treasuries along with a few bond ETFs. With a visual, Dr. Data explains the current convexity risks associated with holding longer maturity bonds as compared to shorter maturities such as the 2-year note. Since most investors tend not to hold fixed income products for their entire duration, the risk is that interest rates will increase thereby decreasing the price of the investment. As an example he compares the 10-year note to the 2-year note; 10-year notes have 80 basis point better yields, yet are held for 5 times longer than 2-year notes. Additionally, a rise in interest rates will negatively affect the 10-year price far more than the 2-year note. Bond ETFs are a bit more complex since there are problems associated with looking strictly at their average duration of bonds held. This is because many hold not just treasuries (which have next to no risks of default) but also corporate bonds (which are more prone to economic conditions). Dr. Data provides a nice visual demonstrating how much three bond ETFs have moved in price when yields have change in notes. He also provides a nice formula to calculate how much these bond ETFs will change depending on your expectation of interest rates. ======== tastytrade.com ======== Hosted by Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista, tastytrade is a real financial network with 8 hours of live programming five days a week during market hours.

4 Popular Short Term Bond ETFs in 2016 (BSV, SHY)
 
06:01
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Interest rates are on the rise again. It may not happen quickly, but the effect of rising interest rates is often the same, especially with regard to short-term yields, which rise faster than long-term yields. Investing in short-term bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can be an excellent way to begin capturing higher yields while providing a hedge against rising interest rates. The objective of short-term bond ETFs is to generate current income while preserving capital, which can make them a viable alternative to low-yielding cash equivalents. Most short-term bond ETFs invest their assets in government bonds or investment-grade debt instruments, or some combination of both, which lowers their risk substantially. The short duration of the underlying securities allows investors to benefit from increasing yields if interest rates continue to rise. As such, investors have been flocking to short-term ETFs in anticipation of rising short-term rates. The three largest short-term bond ETFs have more than $40 billion invested between them. Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF As of March 8, 2016, the Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF (NYSEACRA: BSV) has $18.2 billion in assets under management (AUM) with an average daily trading volume (ADTV) of 1.4 million shares. The fund utilizes sampling algorithms to own securities that closely match the composition and performance of the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Government /Credit Float Adjusted Index. The fund's current allocation consists of 60% U.S. government and U.S. agency-related bonds, as well as 31% investment-grade corporate bonds. The fund also holds a small number of foreign debt securities, which have maturities between one and five years. The fund’s 12-month yield is 1.31%. It fund has returned 1.65% over the last five years and 1.09% over the last three years, both of which describe category-leading performances. The fund's expense ratio is 0.10%. iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond With $12.5 billion in AUM, the iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSEACRA: SHY) is the second-largest short-term bond ETF. The fund's ADTV is 2.2 million shares. It seeks to match its portfolio to the Barclays U.S. 1-3 Year Treasury Bond Index, which consists of public obligations with a maturity of one to three years. As of March 8, 2016, 96% of the fund's assets are invested in U.S. Treasury bonds. As a result, its current yield is lower than short-term bond funds that include corporate bonds in their portfolios. Its 12-month yield is 0.55. The fund’s returns over five and 10 years are 2.34 and 0.69%, respectively. Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF As of March 8, 2016, the Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (NASDAQ: VCSH) has $11 billion in AUM, with an ADTV of 1.1 million shares. The fund is designed to match the composition and performance of the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Government/Credit Float Adjusted Bond Index, which includes U.S. government and investment-grade corporate bonds. The fund’s current allocation is

The 3 Largest Short-Term Bond ETFs (BSV, SHY)
 
06:31
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Short-term bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) invest in fixed-income securities with maturities between one and five years. These funds are used for a variety of purposes, including superior returns versus money market funds, as temporary deposits for investment capital and as defensive holdings during times of high market volatility. The following were the three largest short-term bond ETFs measured by assets under management (AUM), as of April 25, 2016. The Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF With AUM of $18.6 billion, the Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: BSV) is the largest short-term bond ETF. The fund takes a blended approach with its portfolio, mixing Treasurys, investment-grade corporate bonds and dollar-denominated debt from supranational issuers. The fund keeps 89.36% of its portfolio in the United States and diversifies the balance of holdings with small international allocations. For example, the largest holding outside the United States is Canada at 1.52%. The largest sector allocation is Treasurys at 60.24%, followed by industrials at 14.14% and financials at 10.85%. The fund holds debt with maturities ranging from one to five years, giving the portfolio an average weighted maturity of 2.9 years and a duration of 2.7 years. The extension to longer maturities results in the group’s highest distribution yield of 1.33% and slightly higher sensitivity to changes in interest rates. As is common with Vanguard ETFs, the fund had the lowest expense ratio in the group at 0.1%, as well as the narrowest of trading spreads, with an average of 0.01%. The one-year return for BSV is 1.31%. iShares 1-3 Year Credit Bond With a portfolio composed of investment-grade debt from corporate, sovereign and supranational issuers with three-year maximum maturities, the iShares 1-3 Year Credit Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: CSJ) aims to offer a higher distribution yield than comparable all-Treasury funds, but it does have a marginally higher credit risk. The fund maintains 68.89% of its portfolio in the United States and allocates the balance to dollar-denominated international bonds. Canada is the second-largest country holding at 6.05%, followed by the United Kingdom at 5.07%. The largest position is 3.34% allocated to the European Investment Bank, followed by an allocation of 2.79% to KfW Bankengruppe. CSJ has $10.84 billion in AUM and steady average daily volume of $62.76 million, which provides sufficient liquidity for institutional trades. The fund’s average spread of 0.02% and expense ratio of 0.02%, which is less than the average for the category, play essential roles in maximizing total returns. CSJ maintains a short-term exposure with a weighted average maturity of 2.02 years and duration of 1.9, resulting in a distribution yield of 1.03%. The one-year return for the fund is 1.1%. iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond Short-term Treasurys, low volatility and AUM of $10.41 billion make the iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond (NYSEARCA: SHY) popular with investor

Consider These Municipal Bond ETFs
 
05:20
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Municipal bonds can make a positive contribution to an investor's portfolio, by offering tax-free returns in some cases, and a steady stream of income over time. Cities, counties and states issue municipal bonds in order to fund the development of projects including hospitals, airports and school systems. Let's take a glance at a couple of issues investors should consider before determining if a municipal bond ETF makes sense for their investment portfolios.StrengthsThe underlying assets of a municipal bond ETFs like the iShares S&P National Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:MUB) displays the diversity of holdings across state as well as across project development initiatives available to investors. The MUB fund's top holdings include general obligation bonds from states including California, Texas and Oregon. General obligation bonds are considered the safest among the variety of municipal bond offerings, since they are secured by the taxing powers of the issuing authority. The security of municipal bonds and their ability to offer a steady stream of income have made them a popular option for investors. The MUB fund has current yield of 3.20% and returned +6.43% in the last year (excluding distributions). Behind US Treasuries, municipals are considered by many to be the next safest category of investment. SEE: The Basics Of Municipal Bonds RisksTough economic times and lower tax revenues could lead to states having difficulty repaying those invested in municipal bonds. The risk is less pronounced for general obligation bonds, but they are amplified for municipal bonds tied to private institutions like hospitals, due to the risk of bankruptcy. The threat of future inflation, resulting in higher interest rates, could also mean lower returns for municipal bonds with longer times frames until maturity. In this case, municipal bond ETFs with a shorter average maturity, in the neighborhood of three years, like the SPDRS Barclays Capital Short Term Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:SHM) and the S&P Short Term National Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:SUB), would stand to perform better than funds with longer maturities, like the SPDR Barclays Capital Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:TFI) with its average maturity of almost 14 years. SHM, SUB and TFI all returned +0.78%, +0.74% and +6.34% in the last year, respectively. SEE: 20 Tools For Building Up Your Portfolio State OptionsMunicipal Bond Fund ETFs are also available for individual states like California and New York. Two of the biggest funds in terms of total assets investors can investigate are the iShares S&P California Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:CMF) and the iShares S&P New York Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:NYF). Asset size is another consideration, since the smaller a fund is, the greater the possibility of the fund being closed down. CMF and NYF returned +8.19% and +6.60% respectively in the last year.

Why Cost Matters to ETF Investors
 
04:54
As the ETF industry grows and matures, investors are gravitating toward specific areas of interest and targeted investment strategies "I think what we are already seeing - costs matter. We continue to see that," Susan Thompson, Head of SPDR Americans Distribution for State Street Global Investors, said at Inside ETFs. For example, State Street Global Advisors has a line of dirt-cheap ETFs to provide exposure to a range of core equity and fixed-income asset classes, including: SPDR Portfolio Total Stock Market ETF (NYSEArca: SPTM) 0.03% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Large Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SPLG) 0.03% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Mid Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SPMD) 0.05% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SPSM) 0.05% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio S&P 500® Growth ETF (NYSEArca: SPYG) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Value ETF (NYSEArca: SPYV) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 High Dividend ETF (NYSEArca: SPYD) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio World ex-US ETF (NYSEArca: SPDW) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: SPEM) 0.11% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPAB) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Long Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPLB) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Intermediate Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPIB) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Short Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPSB) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Long Term Treasury ETF (NYSEArca: SPTL) 0.06% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Short Term Treasury ETF (NYSEArca: SPTS) 0.06% expense ratio As more investors look to invest, many have become disillusioned with costly active fund strategies, opting to funnel more money into low-cost, passive index-based ETFs.

3 Best High-Yielding Long Term Corporate Bond ETFs (LWC, VCLT)
 
06:31
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do With interest rates slowly and gradually rising in the United States after the U.S. Federal Reserve raised its target range for the federal funds rate, investors are embracing upcoming volatility in the fixed-income market. Long-term corporate bonds typically offer higher returns in comparison to their short-term or intermediate-term counterparts. However, long-term corporate bonds are much more sensitive to interest rate changes, and they are likely to show a lot of volatility when interest rates in the United States rise in the future. Investors interested in diversifying their portfolio with long-term corporate bonds have several compelling high-yielding exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that received strong rankings from fund-rating agencies. SPDR Barclays Long Term Corporate Bond ETF As of March 11, 2016, the SPDR Barclays Long Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEACRA: LWC) demonstrated a 12-month trailing yield of 4.67% and a 30-day Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yield of 5.03%. Created in March 2009, the fund tracks the performance of the Barclays Long U.S. Corporate Index, which is composed of investment-grade U.S. corporate bonds with long maturity profiles. The fund accumulated $130.13 million in assets under management (AUM) and had 1,255 holdings in its portfolio. The ETF's assets are concentrated in industrial issuers at 68.98%, financial services companies at 18.04% and utility issuers at 12.82% weight. The fund holds high-quality bonds only with 50% of its holdings rated A or above. The fund's portfolio demonstrated an average yield-to-maturity of 4.88% and an average duration of 13.62 years. As of March 11, 2016, the fund exhibited a year-to-date (YTD) gain of 3.06% and a one-year loss of 3.51%. For the three-year period, the fund generated an average annual return of 3.40%, while for the five-year period the fund showed an average annual return of 6.64%. The ETF comes with an expense ratio of 0.12% and received a four-star overall rating from Morningstar for its strong risk-adjusted performance in the corporate bond category. Vanguard Long-Term Corporate Bond ETF Shares The Vanguard Long-Term Corporate Bond ETF Shares (NASDAQ: VCLT) showed a 12-month trailing yield of 4.66% and a 30-day SEC yield of 4.82% as of March 11, 2016. The ETF was started in November 2009 to track the investment results of the Barclays U.S. 10+ Year Corporate Bond Index, which is composed of high-quality U.S. corporate bonds that mature mostly in 20 years or more. The fund had $963.6 million in AUM and 1,675 bonds in its portfolio. The ETF's bonds holdings are concentrated on industrial issuer at 68.4%, financial services companies with 18.5% and utilities at 13%. Yield-to-maturity for the fund's portfolio stands at 5.1% and an average duration is 13.4 years. As of March 11, 2016, the ETF showed a YTD gain of 2.70% and a one-year loss of 3.88%. The ETF's average annual returns were 3.45% for the three-year period and 6.97% for the five-year pe

Advantages of Investing in Municipal Bonds
 
08:18
This video discusses the advantages of investing in municipal bonds: namely, the historically lower risk of default (relative to corporate bonds) and tax-exempt nature of most municipal bonds. The video provides an example to show how the after-tax return of a municipal bond can be higher than a corporate bond that has a higher pretax yield. The video also demonstrates why municipal bonds are more attractive to high-income investors by showing that the tax-equivalent yield of a municipal bond increases as a person's tax rate increases.

The Top 10 High-Grade Bond ETFs for 2016
 
10:41
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Investment-grade bonds, also known as high grade, are considered to have a very low risk of default on behalf of the issuer. This additional safety helps preserve capital investments but comes at the expense of lower returns than other riskier securities. Investors often use high-grade bonds during times of economic uncertainty or to produce reliable, steady income flows. The following ETFs each comprise portfolios of bonds falling between AAA and AA credit quality, though the maturities and style of debt instruments can vary significantly. Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF Issuer: Vanguard Assets Under Management (AUM): $17.04 billion 2015 Year-to-Date (YTD) Performance: 1.10% Yield: 1.39% An immensely cheap and liquid ETF, the Vanguard Short-Term Bond Fund (NYSEARCA: BSV) invests in high-grade corporate and international USD-denominated bonds with one- to five-year maturities. Its tracked index is market-value adjusted and tends to have longer maturities than many of its contemporaries, which adds some exposure to interest rate risks. The portfolio is large, with more than 2,100 individual holdings, and trades very easily for both block traders and individual investors. Sixty percent of these holdings are U.S. Treasuries, with significant holdings by industrial and financial institutions as well. Market Vectors Intermediate Municipal Bond ETF Issuer: Van Eck AUM: $1.24 2015 YTD Performance: 2.75% Yield: 2.31% The Market Vectors Intermediate Municipal ETF (NYSEARCA: ITM) is nicely positioned for income investors in 2016 and beyond. The first reason is it is tax-exempt, which is always a plus in the fixed-income space. A second important reason is the slight slant toward shorter maturities than other intermediate-bond ETFs, which depresses interest rate sensitivity. Third, ITM trades with thin spreads and moderate all-in costs. iShares Core U.S. Credit Bond ETF Issuer: BlackRock AUM: $832.52 million 2015 YTD Performance: -0.23% Yield: 3.23% Of all the investment-grade ETFs available to American investors, the iShares Core U.S. Credit Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: CRED) presents the widest swath of possible investment options. Its underlying index, the Barclays U.S. Credit Bond Index, can hold sovereign, local, supranational, international agency and corporate debt. The only qualifiers are that debts be rated as investment grade and be denominated in U.S. dollars. Costs are low and the fund's duration is under seven years, at least as of December 2015. With 2,500 holdings, CRED has an even bulkier portfolio than BSV. Yields are not overly impressive compared to competitive funds, but the international exposure and efficient operations more than counterweight that weakness. iShares National AMT-Free Muni Bond ETF Issuer: BlackRock AUM: $5.74 billion 2015 YTD Performance: 2.05% Yield: 2.52% Another of the numerous high-grade funds from BlackRock, the iShares National AMT-Free Municipal Bond ETF (NYSEARCA: MUB) is a very popular and tax-efficient inv

Why Actively Managed High Yield Bond Funds Trump ETFs
 
03:37
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.'

US Corporate Bond Market Today for Individual Investors
 
13:20
In this July 16, 2018 presentation to the Securities and Exchange Commission's Fixed Income Market Structure Advisory Committee (FIMSAC), BondSavvy founder Steve Shaw shows why investors in individual corporate bonds enjoy a higher level of transparency than investors in bond funds and ETFs. He shows how narrow bid-ask spreads have become for individual corporate bonds and the information available to investors to make successful individual corporate bond investments. Steve then discusses a number of recommendations to further improve pre-trade transparency for US corporate bonds, including: 1) modifying how FINRA presents historical prices in corporate bond historical price charts, 2) adding credit spreads to FINRA TRACE price graphs, 3) educating investors on why bonds should often be sold prior to maturity, 4) reflecting market prices rather than evaluated prices on client brokerage statements, and 5) educating investors on the pros and cons of investing in individual corporate bonds vs. bond funds and ETFs. During the course of Steve's presentation, he refers to a comment letter BondSavvy submitted to the US Securities and Exchange Commission that can be found here: https://www.sec.gov/spotlight/fixed-income-advisory-committee/bondsavvy-comment-letter-pre-trade-transparency-for-retail-investors-in-the-us-corporate-bond-market.pdf
