Individual bonds vs. bond funds
 
03:52
Which is a better investment? There are pros and cons to each, but Vanguard bond experts Daniel Wallick and Chris Alwine emphasize that a municipal bond fund provides diversification and can cushion against risk. All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Credit-quality ratings are obtained from Standard & Poor's and are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). *For more information about Vanguard funds, visit vanguard.com or call 877-662-7447 to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing.* Although the income from a municipal bond fund is exempt from federal tax, you may owe taxes on any capital gains realized through the fund's trading or through your own redemption of shares. For some investors, a portion of the fund's income may be subject to state and local taxes, as well as to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax. This webcast is for educational purposes only.

Advantages of Investing in Municipal Bonds
 
08:18
This video discusses the advantages of investing in municipal bonds: namely, the historically lower risk of default (relative to corporate bonds) and tax-exempt nature of most municipal bonds. The video provides an example to show how the after-tax return of a municipal bond can be higher than a corporate bond that has a higher pretax yield. The video also demonstrates why municipal bonds are more attractive to high-income investors by showing that the tax-equivalent yield of a municipal bond increases as a person's tax rate increases.

Key Things to Know about Fixed Income ETFs | Fidelity
 
03:56
Find out more about exchange-traded funds with us at the https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/etf/overview To see more videos from Fidelity Investments, subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/fidelityinvestments Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fidelityinvestments Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/fidelity Google+: https://plus.google.com/+fidelity LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/fidelity-investments ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Fixed income can be a critical part of nearly every well-diversified portfolio. Used correctly, fixed income can add diversification and a steady source of income to any investor’s portfolio. But how do you choose the right fixed-income ETF? The key to choosing the right fixed-income ETF lies in what it actually holds. U.S. bonds or international bonds? Government securities or corporate debt? Bonds that come due in two years or 20 years? Each decision determines the level of risk you’re taking and the potential return. There are many types of risks to consider with bond investing. Let’s talk more about two in particular: Credit risk and Interest-rate risk. Determining the level of credit risk you want to assume is an important first step when choosing a fixed-income ETF. Do you want an ETF that only holds conservative bonds—like bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury? Or do you want one holding riskier corporate debt? The latter may pay you a higher interest rate, but if the company issuing the bond goes bankrupt, you’ll lose out. ETFs cover the full range of available credit. Look carefully at the credit quality composition of the ETFs underlying holdings, and don’t be lured in by promises of high yields unless you understand the risks. Bonds are funny. Intuitively, you would assume that higher interest rates are good for bondholders, as they can reinvest bond income at higher prevailing interest rates. But rising interest rates may be bad news, at least in the short term. Imagine that the government issues a 10-year bond paying an interest rate of 2%. But shortly thereafter, the U.S. Federal Reserve hikes interest rates. Now, if the government wants to issue a new 10-year bond, it has to pay 3% a year in interest. No one is going to pay the same amount for the 2% bond as the 3% bond; instead, the price of the 2% bond will have to fall to make its yield as attractive as the new, higher-yielding security. That’s how bonds work, like a seesaw: As yields rise, prices fall and vice versa. Another important measure to consider when looking at interest rate risk is duration which helps to approximate the degree of price sensitivity of a bond to changes in interest rates. The longer the duration, the more any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Conversely, the shorter the duration, the less any change in interest rates will affect your investment. Let’s review a few other considerations when looking at fixed income ETFs. First, expense ratios: Because your expected return in a bond ETF is lower than in most stock ETFs, expenses take on extra importance. Generally speaking, the lower the fees, the better. Second, tracking difference: It can be harder to run a bond index fund than an equity fund, so you may see significant variation between the fund’s performance and the index’s returns. Try to seek out funds with low levels of tracking difference, meaning they track their index well. Finally, some bonds can be illiquid. As a result, it’s extra important to look out for bond ETFs with good trading volumes and tight spreads. There are other factors to watch for too, but these are the basics. ETFs can be a great tool for accessing the bond space, but as with anything, it pays to know what you’re buying before you make the leap.

Jim Rowley, senior investor analyst in Vanguard Investment Strategy Group addresses premiums and discounts associated with bond ETFs. For more information about Vanguard ETF Shares, visit www.vanguard.com, call 800-997-2798, or contact your broker to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing. Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing Fund other than in Creation Unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments.

5 Mistakes Investors Make with ETFs | Fidelity
 
04:43
In this video, learn about the five biggest mistakes that investors make when buying ETFs, or exchange-traded funds. To learn the basics about ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/etf/overview. To get started investing with ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/etfs/overview To see more videos from Fidelity Investments, subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/fidelityinvestments Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fidelityinvestments Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/fidelity Google+: https://plus.google.com/+fidelity LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/fidelity-investments --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let’s talk about the five biggest mistakes investors can make when buying exchange-traded funds. ETFs can be good tools for investors - when used appropriately. But with any investment, there are always things to watch out for. Number 1: Buying the Hot New Thing More than 100 new ETF products launch each year, many of them chasing the latest hot trend. Cloud computing, driverless cars, 3-D printing … you name it, there’s an ETF for that. Buying into the latest hot theme might make you big returns, but take care: These product launches may come after there has been a run up in the market. Buying at the top can be painful on the way down. Number 2: Buying Something You Don’t Understand The only thing worse than chasing the hottest trend is buying something you don’t understand. ETFs have taken institutional strategies and made them push-button-easy for everyday investors to access. Want access to commodity futures? There’s an ETF for that. 300% leverage? 200% short? Interest-rate carry plays? Yes to all. But just because you can buy something easily doesn’t mean you should. All of these funds may be good tools, but only if you know how to use them correctly. Number 3: Thinking All ETFs Are Created Equal Consider China. At the start of 2014, there were more than a dozen broad-based China ETFs. For example, had you chosen PGJ, the PowerShares Golden Dragon China ETF, at the start of the year, you would have lost more than 7% of your money. Had you instead chosen ASHR, the Deutsche Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF, you would have earned a 51% return. Both are “China ETFs.” Both can provide big, diversified portfolios. But ASHR has significant exposure to Chinese Ashares—largely consumer-focused stocks listed and traded on the domestic Chinese market— which performed spectacularly well in 2014. Don’t assume all ETFs are created equal. Just because two ETFs cover the same market doesn’t mean they provide the same exposure or returns. There’s no guarantee which fund will perform better in the future. But if you wanted to invest last year in the growth of the Chinese consumer and the domestic investor base there, a little bit of research would have gone a long way. Number 4: Trading…Just Because You Can Trading is central to ETFs. It’s right there in the name. But just because you can trade an ETF intraday doesn’t mean you should. Emotions are often an investor’s worst enemy. You zig when you should zag; you sell at the bottom and buy at the top. We all do sometimes. The trouble is ETFs make that even easier than traditional mutual funds. ETFs’ intraday liquidity can be great when you need to get into or out of the market quickly. But those situations are rare. Number 5: Only Using Market Orders When you do invest, consider using a limit order versus a market order. Market orders are instructions to buy or sell securities at the best possible price right now. That can work well for the most liquid ETFs, but as you move beyond the top dozen ETFs, you can find yourself getting trades executed at prices you don’t really want. Using a limit order means you agree to buy an ETF at a certain price or below, and sell it at a certain price or above. A limit order puts the control back in your hands and can help you set the price on your terms. Learn from these common mistakes to help avoid making them yourself.

03:17
Fixed-income investors are scrambling to adapt to a changing interest rate environment, but one may still generate yields and diminish rate risk through target-date bond ETFs. For instance, Guggenheim Investments has a suite of “BulletShares” defined-maturity bond ETFs, including a range of corporate bond options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2027 Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSCR) and a group of high-yield options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2025 High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSJP). "The objective of the BulletShares ETFs is to deliver the effective maturity of bonds that are maturing in the year. So once you get to the end of the year, we send them the asset value back to share holders," William Belden, Managing Director and Head of ETF Business Development for Guggenheim Investments, said at the Inside ETFs 2018 conference.

Vanguard High Yield (VWEHX 2001-2017)
 
13:05
Vanguard High Yield Fund shows that maybe there is a place in one's for portfolio for bonds after all. I'll show you what I mean by looking at the Vanguard High Yield Fund going back to 2001 through 2017. You'll see it provided steady income throughout that most volatile time frame. Other than 2008 not much in the way of violent downside either. But 2008 was a bear. Can't make light of that.

Consider These Municipal Bond ETFs
 
05:20
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Municipal bonds can make a positive contribution to an investor's portfolio, by offering tax-free returns in some cases, and a steady stream of income over time. Cities, counties and states issue municipal bonds in order to fund the development of projects including hospitals, airports and school systems. Let's take a glance at a couple of issues investors should consider before determining if a municipal bond ETF makes sense for their investment portfolios.StrengthsThe underlying assets of a municipal bond ETFs like the iShares S&P National Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:MUB) displays the diversity of holdings across state as well as across project development initiatives available to investors. The MUB fund's top holdings include general obligation bonds from states including California, Texas and Oregon. General obligation bonds are considered the safest among the variety of municipal bond offerings, since they are secured by the taxing powers of the issuing authority. The security of municipal bonds and their ability to offer a steady stream of income have made them a popular option for investors. The MUB fund has current yield of 3.20% and returned +6.43% in the last year (excluding distributions). Behind US Treasuries, municipals are considered by many to be the next safest category of investment. SEE: The Basics Of Municipal Bonds RisksTough economic times and lower tax revenues could lead to states having difficulty repaying those invested in municipal bonds. The risk is less pronounced for general obligation bonds, but they are amplified for municipal bonds tied to private institutions like hospitals, due to the risk of bankruptcy. The threat of future inflation, resulting in higher interest rates, could also mean lower returns for municipal bonds with longer times frames until maturity. In this case, municipal bond ETFs with a shorter average maturity, in the neighborhood of three years, like the SPDRS Barclays Capital Short Term Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:SHM) and the S&P Short Term National Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:SUB), would stand to perform better than funds with longer maturities, like the SPDR Barclays Capital Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:TFI) with its average maturity of almost 14 years. SHM, SUB and TFI all returned +0.78%, +0.74% and +6.34% in the last year, respectively. SEE: 20 Tools For Building Up Your Portfolio State OptionsMunicipal Bond Fund ETFs are also available for individual states like California and New York. Two of the biggest funds in terms of total assets investors can investigate are the iShares S&P California Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:CMF) and the iShares S&P New York Municipal Bond ETF (ARCA:NYF). Asset size is another consideration, since the smaller a fund is, the greater the possibility of the fund being closed down. CMF and NYF returned +8.19% and +6.60% respectively in the last year.

Muni, High Yield ETFs Still Attractive as Hunt For Yield Continues
 
02:47
U.S. Treasury yields are still high compared to most European sovereign bonds so the iShares 20+ Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) could still appreciate in 2015, said Matt Tucker, Head of Fixed Income Strategy at iShares. Tucker added that investors who believe the TLT is overvalued can opt for the highly diversified iShares Core Total USD Bond Market ETF (IUSB) instead. He said municipal bonds are still attractive on a tax-adjusted basis. Finally, Tucker said high yield may have fallen with energy, but it will likely rebound as oil stabilizes and investors once again seek yield for their portfolios.

Vanguard's recommended international allocation
 
04:07
Research has shown that adding international stocks and bonds to your portfolio helps reduce overall volatility. Vanguard experts Andrew Patterson and Scott Donaldson explain how this works and how investors can go about determining just how much to add. Please remember that all investments involve some risk. Be aware that fluctuations in the financial markets and other factors may cause declines in the value of your account. There is no guarantee that any particular asset allocation or mix of funds will meet your investment objectives or provide you with a given level of income. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments.

ETFs vs. Index Funds: Investing 101 w/ Doug Flynn, CFP
 
05:34
Doug Flynn, CFP, of Flynn Zito Capital Management, LLC on ETFs vs. Index Funds. Ali: Explain the difference between an ETF and a mutual fund... Doug: Well an ETF is a mutual fund that you know and love, but it trades on the exchange, so you can buy throughout the day. Versus a traditional fund which trades once a day at the end of the day. Ali: Okay, so let's talk about index funds, which really came first. First you had stocks, then you had index funds. Doug: Yes, an index fund is just trying to replicate a particular index, which you can't invest in directly, but this is a way to replicate that. So if you like the stocks in the S&P 500, or the stocks in the Dow... Ali: It used to be that you could just read about the stocks in the Dow or the S&P 500, and buy the individual stocks. If you wanted to, you could buy all thirty in the Dow... Doug: That's right. Ali: But then, we came up with index funds, which said, "You can do the Dow, you can do the S&P 500, you can do the Nasdaq, you can do...I don't know...Easter European industries. Doug: Exactly, and that is going to track an index, there isn't a lot of trading or active management in there. You can do that in a traditional mutual fund format or in an ETF, which is the exchange traded version of that, which just means it trades throughout the day. Ali: Generally speaking, index brought the management fees, these fees associated with mutual funds, down, because there's not somebody doing a lot of active work, and ETFs brought them down further. Doug: Correct. Ali: So why would I choose one vs. the other? Doug: So if you buy an ETF, you're typically placing a trade like a stock. So, if you're with an online broker, they're typically going to charge you some type of a trading fee to do that, whereas a mutual fund may have a minimum, but won't necessarily have a transaction charge to do that. There are some cases where that isn't the case. Ali: If you're doing this for fees, you better look at this and understand that you're paying for trades. Doug: Yeah. Most people are putting money away each month. You know, one hundred dollars per month is what they're doing. You can't really do that with an ETF because you're making a transaction every single time. That's where a mutual fund might be better. Ali: So you're putting one hundred bucks a month away, but you're paying ten dollars for the transaction, you gotta weigh that in. Doug: Maybe you use the index fund for a little while, and then you have $10,000, and then you can actually do those transactions. So that's where you might want it in different ways. And that's where it's cheaper. Like anything else, the more money you have, it might be a little bit cheaper. Ali: One thing you warn is not all ETFs are created equal. What do you mean by that? Doug: Well as an example, the two major providers, there's Vanguard, there's i Shares, which are two different providers of ETFs. And you have to look at the structure. And the structure of i shares in particular, they're completely separate, which means their tax ramifications are very low. They don't necessarily pay capital gains to speak of because they're just trading in and out of the ETF structure by itself: it's a stand-alone ETF. Vanguard did what is kind of a bolt-on to its existing mutual funds. What's happened there, is some cases, when the fund pays a capital gains distribution... Ali: Because they sold a stock at a profit... Doug: Right, a large institution wants to sell a bunch of their funds, it transfers into the ETF itself. So all ETFs are not created equal, and you should look at, if I want bond index ETFs, look a little bit deeper and look where are there capital gains distributions. Many people know there are these issues in traditional mutual funds that are actively managed. And they don't scroll down and see if there are differences between the different ETF providers. Ali: And of course that makes a difference depending on how you're investing. Whether this is inside a tax-preferred investment, or it's just out in the open. Doug: If it's an IRA it doesn't really matter, but if it's in a taxable accound, the last thing you want is further tax surprises you thought you were avoiding by being in ETF format. Ali: This is a business for people who feel they're not going to outperform the market with their own selections. Doug: Exactly, you've said in a particular area I don't think I can bring value, I can't find a manager who will bring value in a particular are, I'm just going to index then. And as a portfolio manager and as people who manage money, there are times when we find that you can't bring value with managers, and that they're out of favor, and you might index more. But we're agnostic.

U.S. Gov't Money Market Fund 2.3% Vanguard, 2.0% Fidelity, March 2019
 
06:32
March 2019 interest rates: Gov't Money Market Fund 2.3% state-tax-free, bank MMA 2.5%. Where should you keep the cash portion of your financial assets? The most important considerations are safety, liquidity, income, and convenience. For convenience, you should have a checking account at a local bank or credit union. Keep enough in the account to avoid monthly fees and to cover your ordinary ongoing expenses. If you have more cash beyond that, consider where to keep it for maximum safety and income. The absolute safest choice is U.S. Treasury bills. You can invest directly online at treasurydirect.gov. However, if you need the money before the term expires, you need to transfer the securities to a broker and sell them on a stock exchange, which a hassle and incurs transaction fees. For convenience and liquidity, it's better to invest in U.S. Treasury securities indirectly through a government-only money market fund. The best that I've found is the Vanguard Federal Money Market Fund, symbol VMFXX. Another good choice is the Fidelity Treasury Only Money Market Fund, symbol FDLXX. The Vanguard fund has a very low expense ratio, so it offers the better interest. vanguard.com -- Click "Individual Investors"; then in the search field in the upper right, enter "VMFXX". fidelity.com -- In the search field, enter "FDLXX". It's easy to move money between your local bank and the money market fund. You can log in online and order money transfers free of charge. It can take a few days to complete a transfer. One advantage of investing is U.S. Treasury securities, whether directly or through a money market fund, is that the earnings are free of state and local income tax. The Vanguard VMFXX fund invests partly in repurchase agreements. It lends money to someone for a specific period of time and takes government securities as collateral. Because the interest is paid by the other party, not the U.S. Government, that portion of the interest is not state-tax-exempt. At the end of each year, Vanguard reports the portion of the year's interest that is paid by the Treasury (about 80%), so that you can report the remaining part on your state income tax return. If you are so fortunate to $50,000 or more in cash, Use the Vanguard Treasury Money Market Fund, symbol VUSXX, which invests entirely in U.S. Treasury Bills, so the earnings are 100% free of state and local taxes. The initial investment must be at least $50,000, but if the balance falls below that, there's no penalty. Fidelity has similar good options for very big accounts or if you are investing from a retirement account (IRA, 401K). In a financial crisis, companies can go bankrupt, corporate bonds can default, but the U.S. Treasury always meets its obligations. The Treasury derives its strength from the power to tax the income of American citizens and businesses, making it the most reliable debtor. Another good alternative is to put your money in a high-interest account at a bank insured by the FDIC, a U.S. Government agency, as described in the next video. https://youtu.be/4USuchrreiI Note: Nobody paid me to make this video.

ETFguide - Municipal Bonds

ETFguide is an independent contrary-minded publisher covering the global financial markets. We adamantly believe exchange-traded funds (ETFs) give investors and traders the best shot at reaching their financial goals and it's our job to help them. Via our monthly newsletter, we correctly foresaw the 2011 rally in U.S. Treasuries when many of Wall Street's most respected names were telling their clients to short. Our contrarian analysis frequently highlights pitfalls and propaganda right within the cluttered ETP marketplace. In late 2011, while many of our competitors were recommending exchange-traded notes or ETNs to their clients, but we correctly warned our subscribers about the danger of credit backed ETPs. A few months later, a major meltdown in VIX and natural gas backed ETPs occurred. ETFguide's content is distributed via a network of world-class platforms, including Advisor One, Bar Chart, Investing Channel, Investor's Place, Nasdaq, and Yahoo! Finance. ETFguide's Editor Ron DeLegge began publishing ETFguide in 2003. DeLegge is also host and producer of the Index Investing Show, a weekly radio program and podcast syndicated throughout the U.S. He's the author of "Gents with No Cents: A Closer Look at Wall Street, its Customers, Financial Regulators, and the Media" (Half Full Publishing Group, 2011). Prior to ETFguide, DeLegge worked as a registered investment advisor for 11 years. And before that, he fiddled around with individual stocks until he learned his lesson.

High-Yield Muni ETFs Remain Excellent Buys
 
02:28
Discounts in muni-bond closed-end funds have narrowed recently, but they remain a good buy, says Jim Colby, Senior Municipal Strategist at Van Eck Global. Colby says high-yield munis are especially attractive because spreads remain wide. He says he is seeing high-yield corporate bond investors cross over into the high-yield muni space. Finally, he says investors are best off diversifying their municipal bond portfolios instead of buying individual Puerto Rico bonds for their high yields.

Word of the Day: Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)...Bond Buyer Beware!
 
03:54
Follow us @ http://twitter.com/laurenlyster http://twitter.com/coveringdelta As a follow-up to last week's breakdown of precious metals ETFs (the GLD and SLV), today's Word is also ETF, but with a special focus on the Treasury Bond ETF: the TLT. The moral of the story with these financial products is to read the fine print, but we will give you another reason why as well. Let's dig deeper into one of the more popular Treasury Bond ETFs: it's called the TLT, managed by Blackrock. If you think this ETF sounds like a safe investment because its underlying assets are US Government Securities, you may surprised to find out how much risk you're actually taking on. If you look at the prospectus it states: "The Fund may engage in securities lending. Securities lending involves the risk that the Fund may lose money... " "The Fund may lend securities representing up to one-third of the value of the Fund's total assets" So one-third of underlying assets in the ETF, in this case Treasurys, can be used as collateral to take out loans. The prospectus it also states: "The Fund also may invest up to 5% of its assets in repurchase agreements collateralized by U.S. government obligations and in cash and cash equivalents, including shares of money market funds" Let's put the pieces together: TLT can lend up to one-third of its total assets for cash, and then invest that cash in things like money market funds. This is something you could only find out by reading the Statement of Additional Information, a supplement to the prospectus. The fund can then invest up to 5% of its assets in repos, cash, and money market funds. So, up to 38.33% of assets can be put in the money market. And according to the Schedule of Investments, 36.01% of the 20+ year TLT Treasury Bond Fund is invested in Money Market Funds. Now there is not necessarily a problem with Money Market Funds, but this is certainly an area of additional risk especially if you thought the underlying assets were a direct liability of Uncle Sam. Just recall the run on Money Market Funds after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, it gave rise to headlines like "Rushing to save money-market funds" and "Money-Market Funds Get $50 Billion Backstop From U.S." So remember, before investing in an ETF, even in an apparently safe one, it is important to do your homework. A sophisticated investor or trader may have good reason to use such an ETF, but if you are buying into the TLT as a long-run alternative to buying US Treasurys, you may want to think twice about where you are parking your hard earned money.
