The high-yield bond market in the US is interesting. In January everybody thought the troubles in the high-yield bond market would echo itself into something that would look more like a sub prime crisis in 2008. He had disagreed with this, so has been very Long on this all year. The bond and credit markets have done really well over the last few months, so he would recommend you shorten your duration in bond markets and increase your credit risks.

High-yield bonds with a shorter duration? This is a relatively short duration of around 5 years, and would be his preferred choice.

(A Top Pick June 7/10. Up 16.75%.) US High Yield Corp. Bond ETF. Switched to the US High Yield Bond Index Fund (XHY-T) because it is hedged back to the Cdn $. Returns are almost identical.

Hi Yield Corp Bond ETF. Diversification reduces risk of holding low-investment-grade bonds. Gives full exposure to high yields as an asset class. Higher asset class has performed very well over the last decade. Prefers Canadian hedged versions such as the High Yield Bond ETF (CHB-T) because of currency changes, especially in RRSPs.

US High-yield corporate bonds ETF. Yielding in double-digit territory. There will be a recovery. It will be slow. Spreads will continue to grind in more narrowly.

An ETF that is designed to track the index of the US high yield market. The yield is anywhere from 9% to 10%. There is also currency risk attached to this because it is in US$. You have interest rate volatility and credit risk associated with it along with a currency risk. You are better off with a very strong fixed income active manager.

High yield bond market has been a very strong performer year-to-date but it is really coming off a very bad year in 2008. Up about 30% this year but were down 30%-35% last year. She would recommend an active high yield manager.
