The problem with high-yield bonds are junk bonds, but XHY has held up well. If you don't believe we'll fall into recession, high-yields will perform well. That said, he'd rather buy blue-chip stocks or their convertible debentures.

These are high yield corporate junk bonds. It has a good yield, but it is exposed to more credit risk – many are in the energy sector. In times of crisis, this could be very dangerous. Be very careful here as this will trade like equity in a falling market. Yield 5.7%.

He would look rather at emerging market bonds for income. The credit quality is higher as the US economy is late stage with higher probability of defaults.

Which fund would you recommend for high-yield bonds? You are always dealing with US bonds in this one. He would probably look at the ZHY as well as the XHY. Remember, you are not getting the same premium for high-yield that you used to. He would rather buy a Covered Call. He isn’t a big fan of high-yield stuff.

COMMENT

ETF’s for bonds are not like stocks. They don’t have great tracking. If you are going to buy a high yield bond ETF, only buy a Cdn$ hedged ETF. If the Cdn$ starts to rally, you are going to lose your whole return, and possibly more.

BUY

A Canadian hedged version of the iShares High Yield Bond ETF. (The US$ version is HYG-N for those people who want to own this in US$, and who are more bullish on the US$.) If you have regular government bonds in your portfolio, this gives you high-yield bonds for picking up more income. It has done well in the last 12 months being up by about 13%. Thinks we are probably in the 6th inning of the high-yield bond market.

COMMENT

Doesn’t think you need the Canadian hedge. You want to be exposed to US dollars. He would rather own iShares High Yield Corporate Bond (HYG-N). Also, if you have a credit crunch or an economic malaise of some sort, high-yield bonds tend to fall quicker than traditional government and investment grade corporate bonds. However, the economy looks to be recovering at this point and high-yield bonds are probably the place to be.

Likes the spread on this. It has been hit a bit. He doesn’t mind that it is hedged, as you already have the risk of the underlying asset plus the currency risk. It is very attractive. He prefers corporate credits and risk credit to governments.

One of the few hedged things he has at the moment. He likes the US high-yield bond market. The spread has got huge on this. The yield on this is roughly around 7%. With a yield to maturity and a duration of about 4 years, this is pretty good. The hedge works, because you don’t have to take your currency risk. Also, you don’t get a withholding tax.

TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 11/15. Down 10.5%.) This has been one of the worst years ever for the high-yield market. He has been in and out of this twice since his recommendation. This is nothing, but US high-yield bonds, and hedged back to the Cdn$. Well diversified both by maturity and credit. The yield to maturity is slightly under 9%.

Has always been a “canary in the coal mine” for him. There has been a deterioration in the credit qualities because there is quite a bit of energy included. There is also the issue of the interest rate scenario. Treasuries and high-yields seem to be poised to do little bit better now, so now is not a bad time to just sit tight. There might be a little bit of a rebound. 6% dividend yield and it is hedged to the Cdn$.

He steers clients toward ETFs instead of high yield bonds. He likes XHY-T which he has recommended frequently. He likes this because it has 450 issues and believes that if one of them goes down it won't hurt your performance. He believes in preservation of capital and not reaching for yield. Recommends sticking to consumer products and the non-cyclical companies. Stay save. This has all US high yielding securities.

COMMENT

Continues to like the high-yield market. High-yield bonds continue to make sense. You are getting a 4.5%-5.5% yield. We are still seeing an expanding economy in the US. He doesn’t see any issues with owning high-yield bonds at this point.

This is just high yield bonds.  The problem is that high yield correlates with equity markets.  It does not give the normal negative correlation of bond yields to equities.  XTR-T is more diversified.
