  1. Excellent overview. Not sure I would classify HYG as safe given high yield spreads are about 2% below their long-term average. In today's environment, rather than AGG, I prefer ultra short-term bond ETFs like ICSH that has an SEC yield of 2.5% and very little interest rate risk.

  2. Bonds are easily overlooked as investments. Since most people stick to stocks (like the summaries I do on my channel) it makes bonds unknown or unappealing. Great videos! Always make sure you understand what you are putting your money into.

  3. Bonds, just like other investment types, have their place in a well-diversified investment portfolio. People just have to recognize the different types of bond investments also have differing levels of risk too.

  4. For your question of stocks, bonds or real estate. I really really really want to get some rental properties. But i also really want to get bonds set up so i have a payment every month. But capital to invest in such things puts these dreams a distance in the future so in the meantime i am trying to understand things more.

  5. Suggestion for a video would be understanding the e*trade bond page. Like the yield and price on many i see have a red and green number. I see a lot of bonds have a min order, I cannot find any munis with a 1 minimum order. I think i will go corporate to get started.

  6. I'm a beginner investor and I have a question to ask you. Throughout the video you mention that bonds generally have a return between 2.x% and 3.x% per year, and that seems about the same as inflation. I can't see how locking up your money for a few decades just to keep up with inflation would be a good investment. Wouldn't you be much better off putting your money into a high interest savings account at ~2% and keep the liquidity..?

  7. Joseph, currently I can only use robo-advisor apps like Betterment and M1Finance which combined holds 90% stocks and 10% bonds now since I am a junior investor with less than a year investing I’ll say maybe allocating my asset classes in ETFs (from my apps) some two Index Funds one from Charles Schwab index fund and the Fidelity Index fund, however, as I grow older and start to earn more I’ll start looking at bonds specifically US treasury bonds and municipal bonds. I’ll also be sure to buy your book about bond investing. Once again, good video!

  8. I think that being in the stock market is good for younger people that still don’t have enough money to make a lot from fixed income. Once you get like $400k+ in your investments, a mix of bonds and reits will make you a lot with very low risk. Even if the bond or reit drops in price, you’re still earning that income every month.

  9. Best investment is real estate surrounding growing cities, especially in developing countries. Eventually the city engulfs your land and you split it up and sell at 10x the price you payed. You have to be patient and long term oriented though…

  10. Thanks for this great video! I'm slowly educating my self in investment and perhaps bonds is a good way to start for me. I'm risk averse and don't want to spend a lot of time trading and being concerned about collapses of my stock…

  11. Thanks for such educational videos! Some financial coaches don't like bonds because the share price goes down as rates go up. If you invest in a bond ETF how long would a person have to hold it to make their money back plus the the interest (maturity)?
