Bonds - vs. GICs

He has no problem with GICs. Terrific investments. If you ladder them, you'll get your money back every 12 months to reinvest. You can choose to reinvest in another GIC or in a bond.

Bonds are more complicated, but corporate bonds offer an after-tax appeal that a GIC doesn't. Because GICs are issued at par, they're fully taxable. Whereas the discount of a corporate bond is a capital gain item, and will improve your tax return. If it's your RRSP, a full-coupon GIC is fine. See his Top Picks.

There are times when GICs are very attractive compared to bonds, and at some of the maturities right now they are. But if there's a quick selloff in the bond market, GICs don't respond as quickly, and so the bonds give you yields higher than GIC rates.
