A good long-term hold. Only hold short-term securities. Is dropping because as high yield bonds mature, the asset value of the fund drops.

1-5 yr Ladder Corp Bond ETF. With this and similar ones all you are doing is minimizing losses and not making gains. In a rising rate environment you are still going to get hurt.

If rates gradually rise in the short term, then this fund will suffer. He thinks rates will rise modestly over this year. The coupon may not be enough to offset the loss in capital. The market expects 100 basis points be his firm expects somewhat (50-75) less.

1-5 yr Ladder Corp Bond ETF. Likes laddered approach over all and they should satisfy a smaller investor with small amounts to invest but would prefer a 7 or 10 year ladder.

1-5 year Ladder Corp Bond ETF. Thinks interest rates are going up and part of that is reflected in the bond market. He would hesitate. If you were going to buy a bond ETF, he would stay on the short end of the curve.

1-5 year Ladder Corps. You have to be cautious. With rates so low when they make their adjustments, this will probably going to be a bit of a loser over the next 6-12 months.

1-5 Year Ladder Corporate Bond ETF. Gives a diversified portfolio, which includes bonds when it's a challenging time to be investing in bonds. Protected by short durations. By laddering, duration is kept down 1 to 3 years. Government bonds are not that attractive and this gives extra yield.

A great choice for a TFSA. He is a big proponent of the laddering your bond portfolio.

1-5 Year Ladder Corp Bond ETF. Fairly short-term investment with all the securities being under 5 years. If there is a backup in interest rates because of inflation expectations, there could be a setback in price but risk would be fairly low so doesn't see a problem for the short-term.

1-5 year laddered bond portfolio. It’s a low risk. If you have a sizeable portfolio, you could ladder your own portfolio of GICs and save the costs.

XCB, CBO: yield between government and corporate bonds are narrowing, so risk/return is not the same as it was. Would not be chasing corporate bonds.

Claymore 1-5year Ladder Corporate Bond ETF. Short term in nature and he would encourage you to look out further on the yield curve into a mid term or universe type product and preferably corporates.
