Investors can no longer count on stocks paying dividends. Our individual corporate bond recommendations protect principal and income better than stocks and have outperformed bond funds.
Making direct investments in bonds rather than through a bond mutual fund or bond ETF offers many advantages, such as higher potential investment returns, greater investment transparency, contractual interest payments, a maturity date, and the lowest investment fees. That said, there are thousands of individual corporate bonds from which to choose, and it can be difficult to decide which corporate bonds to buy.
BondSavvy narrows the universe of corporate bonds to a select number we recommend to our subscribers. We then monitor our recommended bonds and issuing companies and decide whether to recommend buying more bonds, holding recommended bonds, or selling previously recommended bonds. Our subscribers follow the below three steps when making direct investments in corporate bonds:
BondSavvy empowers you to invest in corporate bonds by presenting the best bonds to buy during The Bondcast, a subscriber-only investment webinar we host after companies report quarterly earnings.
You decide which of our recommended bonds to buy and make direct investments through your own online brokerage. Investing in bonds online is an efficient and competitive marketplace, where individual investors can invest at bond prices that are competitive with large bond funds.
Our goal is to maximize the total return on each corporate bond we recommend. Bond prices have ceilings and cannot increase in value to the extent stocks can. We therefore advocate selling bonds prior to maturity when we believe a recommended bond has maximized its investment return opportunity.
