You should look at this as a proxy for the high-yield market. There was a big selloff over the last 6 weeks, because high yields have rallied so hard and so fast, there was a revaluation.

Generally doesn’t like just high-yield, because high-yield means junk bonds. If you are relying on this for income, your money would be better off someplace else. He wouldn’t have this in his portfolios.

With rates hitting an all-time bottom a few months ago, and now starting to creep up, and it is the longer rates that are being hurt, especially the 5-10 years duration. When they start to reinvest, they will be investing into a higher rate, but in the meantime, you’ll be seeing a drop in value. He would prefer a ladder of GICs. For the next 2 to 5 years, you are certain to lose money in a traditional bond ETF or bond mutual fund.

(Top Pick Jul 27/13, Up 6.51%) Wanted a reasonable yield. Was a good performer and he uses it as an alternative to cash. It’s never going to move that much. It is US corporate securities. Paid monthly so you can be in and out of this. The fund is winding down because authorities don’t like the structure of the fund. He still uses it but recognizes that it will run off and will not be as safe as before.

With all the talk about interest rates going up, is it time to Sell or Hold if she is satisfied with just the income? Depends on how prepared you are to tough it out. He wouldn’t be surprised if in a year or 2, you didn’t make any money. Whatever money you made in income, you might lose in principal if there were some rate hikes. If all you are concerned with is the yield and you are not concerned with the NAV, it would probably be worth hanging onto.

Return of capital is very tax effective as there is no tax on it. The problem with return of capital is that it is grinding down your adjusted cost base so at some point it could lead to higher taxes down the road. High-yield is not a bad way to go in the bond market. He is increasingly starting to look at this.

Doing very, very well. Return expectations have been exceeded. At this point, it’s all about being very selective because some things have narrowed substantially and is not worth getting into. Unfortunately, this is a passive type of portfolio and will usually just invest in what is in the index. Don’t expect the same kind of returns this year.

Are priced to perfection. The easy money if off the table. The return won't continue. It's not sustainable.

Mirrors high-yield bond fund in the US. Excellent yield of 7%. Probably at the top of its range right now. Well-managed and well diversified. You have to be very careful that if there is any hint that interest rates are going to start to rise, you don't want to be here.

A number of bonds came off in the last week or so. But this one is also based on some junk bonds. Thinks a lot of people are buying this because they see the high yield and you wont always have that.

Advantage High Yield Bond ETF. Likes this quite a lot. Default rates on junk bonds have fallen substantially. This gives you a big, diversified portfolio. There are over 400 bonds in this one and reaching across the entire spectrum of this economy. Yield is going to be close to 8% and you might get as much as 10% this year.

High Yield Bond ETF. Danger here is where people load up (like 100%) in high yield. This is a great way to play the high yield market. 2 big risks. 1) They are passive, so you are not getting a manager to pick out the better credits. 2) Not really developed in Canada so they have to go to the US for them and you could lose on currency.

High Yield Bond ETF. High Yield Bonds are the least correlated of all interest rate products to the actual interest rate market. They are with the less liquid and more volatile companies. Historically, the spreads with these have really come in. High yield bonds are more expensive than they were in pre-prices in 2007.

High Yield Bond ETF. Unique structured product in that it returns because it is a total return swap in an underlying portfolio. Returns are either return of capital or capital gain, which is more tax efficient.

High Yield 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 over US ones because of currency changes, especially in RRSPs.

Junk bonds, lower credit rating. Never been strongly in favour of these because of the credit risk involved, but it’s a question of degree of risk.

US high yield bonds traded in Canadian dollars. Hybrid between bonds and equities. You have to be prepared to ride with the volatility. There is credit risk. Structured to pay dividends as capital or return of capital, unlike XHY.

High Yield Bond ETF. Uses a forward so that payments you get, instead of being taxed as interest, are taxed as capital gains. Gets you around the US withholding tax. Good for a taxable account. (Pays out a little bit more than the underlying yield, meaning the payouts could go down a little in the future.)

High Yield Bond ETF. When dealing with high yield bonds, they are lower quality bonds. Also duration on this portfolio is more mid-term rather than short-term. If there is an increase in rates it will be negatively affected. Returns are in the form of capital rather than interest, which makes it more attractive.

High-yield bond ETF. Have to be careful how much high yield is in your portfolio. Did very well last year and into this year and probably more to come. Below investment grade giving riskier holdings. This ETF is linked to an index and the duration is not long, about 5 years.

Problem with it is that anything that says high yield means junk. Prefers not to have that for long term retirement planning. It’s a structured financial product. Risks of default, counter party risk and a taxation risk.

This is down the risk spectrum so you get paid for taking on the risk (8-9%). This has a shorter term to maturity. They do not withhold tax. It’s an attractive asset space.

High yield bonds. Yield spreads have tightened compared to a year ago. We are at a point where all bonds have risk. By going into high yield, you take on extra risk. You are diversified in case a company in the fund defaults on payments.

When talking high yield bonds, you're really talking junk bonds so it’s high yield combined with high risk. Wouldn't go into this with his own clients but if you want this he would recommend this one as it is hedged for the Cdn$ but duration is about 5 years so will be vulnerable to any upward movement in interest rates.
