GECC 5.68% bond maturing Sept 10/19. New issue this month. Likes the 7 to 12 year space. Very good credit at a AA high. Company has passed the worst part as far as their ability to fund in the market. If you have a little more risk profile and you want growth, you could buy the stock.

9.976% bond maturing June 30/19. Price is a bit expensive at $126 so it may not appeal to individual investors. A safer way than using the common stocks as it puts you higher up on the structure. In balanced portfolio he would use a different bank for the stocks.
