TD call about residual with the 1st call date Nov/12 and final maturity is 2017. If this is not called in November is there an impact on the callable residual? Believes that this is a fixed floater, which a bank issues for 5 years and then it would float for 5 years. 99.9% likely that it will be called this fall.

Paid $104.95 in Aug /11 for a Series C bond due Jan 12/18. Did I pay too much and what do you think of it? Likes this company. Price paid was high as spreads widened after that and prices fell. (See Top Picks.)

6.4% strip bond maturing in 2031. Doesn't like long-term corporates and the strips I really asking for trouble. Very volatile and that is a long time for corporations to survive. If you do sell, be very careful to see what the bid is compared to the value is in your statement.

(A Top Pick Nov 28/11. Up 3.6%.) 5.2% bond maturing Sept 8/16. Have liked this company for a long time. Undervalued. This is a name people should have in their bond portfolios.
