In this episode of common sense investing I will tell you why you should think twice about owning high yield bonds. Alternative investments are a broad category, so I have split this topic up into multiple parts. In Part One, I will tell you why high yield bonds don’t quite yield enough to justify their risks. My name is Ben Felix of PWL Capital and this is Common Sense Investing. I’ll be talking about a lot more common sense investing topics in this series, so subscribe and click the bell for updates.

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?

In this revision video we work through some numerical examples of the inverse relationship between the market price of fixed-interest government bonds and the yields on those bonds. Government bonds are fixed interest securities. This means that a bond pays a fixed annual interest – this is known as the coupon The coupon (paid in £s, $s, Euros etc.) is fixed but the yield on a bond will vary The yield is effectively the interest rate on a bond. The yield will vary inversely with the market price of a bond 1.When bond prices are rising, the yield will fall 2.When bond prices are falling, the yield will rise - - - - - - - - - MORE ABOUT TUTOR2U ECONOMICS: Visit tutor2u Economics for thousands of free study notes, videos, quizzes and more: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics A Level Economics Revision Flashcards: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/alevel-economics-revision-flashcards A Level Economics Example Top Grade Essays: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/exemplar-essays-for-a-level-economics

Since most investors will never hold a bond throughout the entire term, understanding how to value the asset becomes very important. As we get into the second course of this website, a thorough understanding of these terms is needed. So, be sure to learn it now and not jump ahead. We learned that there are two ways to look at the value of a bond, simple interest and compound interest. As an intelligent investor, you'll really want to focus on understanding compound interest. The term that was really important to understand in this lesson was yield to maturity. This term was really important because it accounted for almost every variable we could consider when determining the true value (or intrinsic value) of the bond. Yield to Maturity estimates the total amount of money you will earn over the entire life of the bond, but it actually accounts for all coupons, interest-on-interest, and gains or losses you'll sustain from the difference between the price you pay and the par value.

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.

The current yield and yield to maturity (YTM) are two popular bond yield measures. The current yield tells investors what they will earn from buying a bond and holding it for one year. The yield to maturity (YTM) is the bond's anticipated return if held until it matures.

In this lecture, we price the same standard bond given three different ratings agency ratings, which has given us three different required overall yields to get from the bond, given the changing levels of risk. After explaining the theory of present valuing the different fixed cashflows, we then use an Excel spreadsheet to calculate the three different bond prices. The lecture finishes with an Excel chart which displays the relationships between coupon rate, flat yield, and yield to maturity, as well as highlighting the most important concept in bond trading; when required interest rates go up, bond prices go down, and when required interest rates go down, bond prices go up. For those who wish to know how to calculate a yield to maturity given a market bond price, see the next lecture.

Help us make better videos: http://www.informedtrades.com/donate Trade stocks and bonds with Scottrade, the broker Simit uses: http://bit.ly/scottrade-IT (see our review: http://bit.ly/scottrade-IT2) KEY POINTS 1. Bond prices and bond yields move in opposite directions. When bond prices go up, that means yields are going down; when bond prices go down, this means yields are going up. Mathematically, this is because yield is equal to: annual coupon payments/price paid for bond A decrease in price is thus a decrease in the denominator of the equation, which in turn results in a larger number. 2. Conceptually, the reason for why a decrease in bond price results in an increase bond yields can be understood through an example. a. Suppose a corporation issues a bond to a bondholder for $100, and with a promise of $5 in coupon payments per year. This bond thus has a yield of 5%. ($5/$100 = 5%) b. Suppose the same corporation then issues additional bonds, also for $100 but this time promising $6 in coupon payments for year -- and thus yielding 6%. No rational investor would choose the old bond; instead, they would all purchase the new bond, because it yielded more and was at the same price. As a result, if a holder of the old bonds needed to sell them, he/she would need to do so at a lower price. For instance, if holder of the old bonds was willing to sell it at $83.33, than any prospective buyer would get a bond that earned $5 in coupon payments on an $83.33 payment -- effectively an annual yield of 6% (5/83.33). The yield to maturity could be even higher, since the bond would give the bondholder $100 upon reaching maturity. 3. The longer the duration of the bonds, the more sensitivity there is to interest rate moves. For instance, if interest rates rise in year 3 of a 30 year bond (meaning there are 27 years left until maturity) the price of the bond would fall more than if interest rates rise in year 3 of a 5 year bond. This is because an interest in interest rates reduces the relative appeal of existing coupon payments, and the more coupon payments that are remaining, the more interest rate fluctuations will impact the price of the bond. 4. Lastly, a small note on jargon: when investors or commentators say, "bonds are up," (or down) they are referring to bond prices. "Bonds are up" thus means bond prices are up and yields are down; conversely, "bonds are down" means bond prices are down and yields are up.

In this lecture we examine the simplest bond yield measurement, the 'Flat Yield', which is a measure of the periodic income of a bond divided by its initial price. The long-term redemption and capital return values of a bond are irrelevant when considering the flat yield of a bond, which is also known as the current yield, interest yield, income yield, market yield, mark to market yield, or running yield. After describing how to calculate the flat yield, we also make note of the special relationship between what you pay for a bond and what directional effect this has on the flat yield as compared to the fixed coupon rate.

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. Watch as I show you exactly what I mean. https://www.morningstar.com/funds/xnas/vwehx/quote.html https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/performance/vwehx/cumulative-returns https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/VWEHX/performance?p=VWEHX ================================= If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.

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.

And all of that is true…most of the time. The big issue with bond risk (and how people lose money with bonds) is when any of these 7 risk factors arise. And even worse, when any of the 7 risks combine at the same time, it can prove catastrophic. I will give you a basic review of the 7 different ways to lose money in bonds here: 1. Lack of Liquidity in bonds – Although the bond market is larger than the stock market in total value, there are far fewer bond traders and bond investors comparatively speaking. So when issues arise with a certain bond (like a city or municipality defaulting on their bonds, bankruptcy, etc), it can leave the average investor high and dry with no one to sell their bond to. 2. Interest Rate Fluctuations – Bond prices are inversely related to interest rates, so when interest rates rise, bond prices (the price that you buy and sell bonds) goes down. And with interest rates close to all-time lows today, this is a bubble just waiting to pop once interest rates start rising. And if they rise quickly, watch out bond prices! 3. Bond Creditworthiness – This is an important issue as the creditworthiness of the bond issuer determines the yield, and thus your risk/return. For instance, you might not get a great return on a United States Treasury bond, but you can sleep at night knowing there is little chance it will default. On the other hand, you can get hundreds of times more yield on a low-grade junk bond, but the chances of you losing money (or even all of your investment) go up significantly compared to a US Treasury bill. 4. Inflation / Hyperinflation – Generally speaking, inflation usually means higher interest rates. And since we know that interest rates are inversely related to bond prices, high inflation can destroy the value of your bond. Not to mention, in times of inflation the cost of everything (consumer goods) is going up, while your bond investment doesn’t. So higher inflation could render your bond interest negative after you factor inflation into the equation. 5. Reinvestment Risk – This risk pertains to the opposite issue of the others in that it occurs in times of a slowing economy, or a declining interest rate environment. When interest rates go down, bond investors are forced to reinvest their bond interest (and any return of principal) into new securities that will have lower rates of return. Of course this will reduce the overall income that is being generated by your bond portfolio. 6. Bond Fund “Backfire” – Bond funds have traditionally been considered very safe as they spread the bond risks out amongst many different bonds (versus an individual bond). And this is usually the case. However, bond funds can “backfire” when a bond manager starts replacing bonds as they mature in a rising interest rate environment. And if the bond portfolio loses enough value that investors start leaving the fund in droves, then the bond manager might have to start unloading high yielding bonds to meet the early redemption's. This doesn’t happen that often, but when it does, it is painful to all involved. 7. Making Bad Bond Assumptions – Finally, don’t ever make the assumption that your bond or bond fund is free of risk and can just cruise on auto-pilot without you ever having to review or check up on. This is where many bond investors get into trouble by thinking they can buy it and forget about it. Stay educated on what is going on with your bond, watch interest rates, and don’t chase bond yields! Finally, always get the advice of a licensed bond specialist to make sure that you never get burned by any of these bond risks.

Mutual Funds and Bond Yields have a correlation with each other. Increase in bond yields results in an increase in interest rates. It is either a result of or results in REPO Rate by RBI. Therefore, bond price decrease and in such a scenario, Short term debt funds deliver best returns. On the contrary, If the bond yield decrease as a result of the cut in Repo Rate, the bond price increase. It leads to higher returns from long term debt mutual funds. An investor can take advantage of this correlation between Mutual Funds and Bond Yields. When the interest rates are increasing, Short term debt mutual funds should be preferred and in case interest rates are decreasing, Long term debt mutual funds deliver superior returns. By investing in debt mutual funds, an investor can generate returns higher than the traditional investment options like fixed deposits or small savings schemes. The only catch is to understand the interest rate cycle to decide on the type of debt mutual fund. If you liked this video, You can "Subscribe" to my YouTube Channel.

The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates for the past couple of years. It looks like they’re signaling that they’re going to continue to raise them over the next year or so, and yet what we’ve seen recently is that longer-term treasury bond yields haven’t been rising as much. On this episode of Bond Market Today, Kathy Jones and Collin Martin discuss how high bond yields might go in this cycle.

UPDATE: You can also find the YTM by trial and error. If you plug in 0.06 for the YTM in the equation this gives you $91,575, which is lower than $92,227. YTM = 0.058 gives you $92,376, which is a little bit higher than $92,227. YTM = 0.0585 gives you $92,175, but YTM = 0.0584 gives you $92,215 which is very close to $92,227. Thus, 5.84% is the approximate YTM This video explains how to calculate the yield-to-maturity of a coupon bond.

If the future cash flows of interest and redemption price are discounted using YTM, the present value of such cash flows will be equal to its actual market price. In other words, a rate of discounting which can make the intrinsic value equal to the actual market price can be considered as YTM Rate. For example, if a bond is issued at par with face value of ` 1,000 and redeemable at par with coupon rate of 10% per annum is actually providing the yield of 10% per annum. In other words, the YTM of such bond shall be 10% per annum. However, in the same example if the bond is redeemable at premium, other things remaining same, it would obviously provide an yield higher than 10%. Annuity Bonds These bonds are paid over a period of time by the same amount of cash flows each year. Therefore, there is neither any coupon payment nor any redemption price. All the cash flows of these bonds are spread over their life by way of annuities. These are bonds which would repay the principal over its life along with interest by way of constant cash flows. For example, a bond that is issued at ` 1,000 with 5 years life provides an annuity of ` 260 per annum at end of each year over its life of 5 years. The total cash flows over 5 years will be (` 260 x 5) = ` 1,300 This includes the principal repayment of ` 1,000 and the total interest of ` 300. Changes in Intrinsic Value of Bond as it approaches its Maturity (Inter-relationship between Intrinsic value and Redeemable Value) The intrinsic value of the bond gets closer to the redemption price as and when the bond approaches its maturity. If a Premium Bond is redeemable at par, its intrinsic value constantly declines over time. If a Discount Bond is redeemable at par, its intrinsic value constantly rises over time. Zero Coupon Bonds (ZCB) These are bonds which do not provide any coupon payments. In other words, there is no interest payable on such bonds. These bonds are either issued at nominal discount or at par and redeemable at a significant premium. The present value of cash flows from this bond considers only the present value of redemption price which is its intrinsic value. With maturity date coming closer the intrinsic value of such bonds increases. Deep Discount Bonds (DDB) These are such zero coupon bonds, which are redeemable at par but issued at significant discount. Callable Bonds A callable bond is such a bond that provides an option to the issuer to call for redemption at an earlier date as compared to maturity. Such bonds are generally redeemed before maturity if the interest rate in the market declines. Inversely if the interest rate increases the issuer will opt for redemption of the bonds at the specified maturity date only. The call date is a specified date at which the issuer can call for premature redemption. The call price of a bond generally is higher than the redemption price payable on maturity, in order to compensate the investor. Yield to Call (YTC) YTC is applicable only for callable bonds. YTC is determined just like YTM. The only difference is, while determining YTC the applicable date of redemption will be the call date and not maturity date and the redemption value applicable at the call date shall be considered in place of redemption at maturity. #Bonds , #Finance , #CAFinal , #FinancialLearning , #CAFinalSFM , #StrategicFinancialManagement , #SFM ,
