Corporate Bonds Looking Hot And Sexy

Sun, Oct 26, 2008

Down to Business

If you’re a Treasurer who feels like making some ballsy moves in the market, you should give corporate bonds a look.  With a flight to safety and high quality investments, corporate bonds are offering some serious “equity-like” returns, says UBS.  Yes, there is risk…but you have some very big names like Citi, AMEX, IBM and GE offering coupons in the 5-8% range and YTM in the 7-12% range.

So, if you’ve got the cojones and are confident that these companies will be around after this crisis is over, then why not take a dip?

    Yea I saw this too, very enticing! I’m bearish on Citi but IBM, AMEX and GE look good….Or we could have just thrown all our money into the DOW at 6am then sold everything at 2pm and called it good for the year :)

    Yeah, seriously. I wish I had time for some good old late 1990s day trading…
