The yield curve is flattening in 2018 and if it inverts there will be a recession. What to do? In this article I am going to explain what is the yield curve, what does a flattening or steepening yield curve mean, how the yield curve affects the economy and see whether the current yield curve indicates that we are close to a 2018 recession. What is the yield curve The yield curve is a chart showing the yield on bonds starting with short term maturities to long term maturities. The used bond maturities are from one month to 30 years. What the yield curve is showing is practically the cost of borrowing money over time for the U.S. government in this case. Steepening and flattening yield curve The yield curve can be flat or steep. A steep yield curve is usually at the beginning of an economic expansion. Investors fear future higher inflation and demand a higher return for the long term but the central bank still keeps short term rates low. Thus, the yield steepens. A flat yield curve shows that long term investors are willing to take an equal yield as short-term investors in order to lock in the yield for the longer term. This means they are expecting lower yields in the future. And, historically is has been the case that economic recessions follow a flat yield curve.

This video will teach you what dividend yield is, how to calculate it and why it's important. Dividend yield is the dividend, relative to the price of the investment. What are dividends? Check out the previous video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8s_8O99dNC0 Twitter: https://twitter.com/MrSoniBros Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mrsonibros Didn't hear me properly? This is what I was saying: Today we're going to be learning what dividend yield is. We already know what a dividend is from the previous video, now we just need to know the yield part. If you don't know what a dividend is, just click on the word dividend to watch the previous video, and then come back to this video. Let's use the hypothetical company from the last video, Soni's Shawarma. Soni's Shawarma is a restaurant chain that has thousands of restaurants across the country, and obviously, sells shawarmas. Soni's Shawarma pays a quarterly dividend of $0.25. Which means in a year, it pays a total dividend of a dollar, since 25 cents every 3 months adds up to a dollar every year. So we know how much Soni's Shawarma pays in dividends for every share that we own, but we don't know how much it costs to buy one share of Soni's Shawarma. What if I told you that one share of Soni's Shawarma costs $1000. Yes, $1000 to buy 1 share of Soni's Shawarma, and it only pays us one dollar in dividends every year. What if I told you that one share of Soni's Shawarma costs only $20. $20 for one share, and it pays us one dollar in dividends every year. Which one would you rather pick? I would pick the $20 share that pays me $1, instead of the $1000 dollar share that pays me $1. Why, because it has a greater yield! Yield is simply the dividends we get, relative to the price of the share. That's not a dictionary definition, it's my definition for this case. So now let's calculate the yield of these two options, let's start with the $1000 share. If one share of Soni's Shawarma costs $1000 and In one year, it gives us one dollar, the annual dividend is one dollar. So to calculate the yield, we need to take the dividend, and divide it by the price. So the dividend of one dollar, divided by the price of $1000, equals 0.001, which can also be expressed as 0.1%. So the dividend yield in this case is 0.1%. Now let's move on to the next case. If one share of Soni's Shawarma costs $20 and in one year, it gives us one dollar, the annual dividend is one dollar. Just like before, to calculate the yield, we take the dividend and divide it by the price. So the dividend which is one dollar, divided by the price, which is $20, equals 0.05, which is another way of saying 5%. So that's dividend yield, the dividend relative to the price. The $20 share has a yield of 5%, that means I'll be getting 5% of the money I paid every year. It means 5% of the price, will be paid to me in dividends. With the $1000 share which has a yield of 0.1%, it means I'll be getting 0.1% of the money I paid, every year. It means 0.1% of the price, will be paid to me in dividends. So which one would you rather pick? Would you rather have your dividends equal 5% of the price you paid, or would you rather have them equal only 0.1% of the price you paid. I would rather have them equal 5% of the price I paid, because I get more money relative to the price I paid. If we're only looking at dividends, paying $20 to get an annual dividend of $1, is better than paying $1000 to get that same annual dividend of $1. Remember, stock prices change every day, so that means, dividend yield will also change every day. If its $20 to buy a share that has an annual dividend of $1, it has a yield of 5%. If tomorrow, the price of that same share goes up to $21, then we divide 1 by 21 to get a yield of 4.76%. So as prices change, so does the yield, as dividends change, so does the yield. So now you know what dividend yield is, how to calculate it, and why it's important. If you liked this video, please make sure to hit that subscribe button. Thank you.

Since the start of 2013, investors have poured nearly $9 billion into high-yield exchange traded funds. Gershon Distenfeld, director of high yield at AllianceBernstein, said it is clear that they should have opted for actively managed funds instead. 'The numbers tell the whole story. You don’t have to give fancy arguments. These things have been around for almost a decade and they have well underperformed the average active manager,' said Distenfeld. According to Distenfeld’s numbers, since the start of 2008, shortly after their inception, the two largest ETFs— HYG and JNK—delivered annualized returns of 6.2% and 6%, respectively, well short of the 8.3% annualized return for the Barclays US Corporate High-Yield Index. He adds that the top 20% of active high-yield mangers, as rated by Lipper, have also comfortably outperformed these two ETFs and have done it with lower volatility, as measured by risk-adjusted returns, and are not really much cheaper than active funds. 'The management fees are slightly lower. They are not the few basis points you find in the equity world. They are 40 and 50 basis point fees, but again, the numbers tell the whole story. Over eight years they have underperformed a high yield index by about 200 basis points and some of the top-tier managers by 300 or 400 basis points.'

In this report the early market action from London on Wednesday, April 25th, 2018. I look at the precious metals, the stock market, the dollar and the bond markets. I also talk about how a break above the 3% yield level for the 10-year note U.S. treasury would mark the probable end of the 30-year plus environment of decreasing interest rates and easy money. I note that since 1981, when the 10-year yield topped near 16%, the U.S. economy and government have been able to take on an exponential amount of debt and credit because of a favorable interest rate environment. My conclusion is that we could be at the very beginning of the unwind of the massive debt bubble that has been built since the early 1980s.

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.

The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates for the past couple of years. It looks like they’re signaling that they’re going to continue to raise them over the next year or so, and yet what we’ve seen recently is that longer-term treasury bond yields haven’t been rising as much.

Duration tells investors the length of time, in years, that it will take a bond's cash flows to repay the investor the price he or she paid for the bond. A bond's duration also tells investors how much a bond's price might change when interest rates change i.e. how much risk they face from interest rate changes.

Do High Yield bonds belong in your Roth IRA? Well, if you've been following the channel you know how I feel about bonds. Not a fan. But High Yield bonds are different. They pay more. Well, there is a reason they pay more.... they are riskier. In fact, look at 2007-2009 many high yield funds were down over 40%. In this video I am going to share with you why I think if you are going to take the risk to invest in high yield bonds, you may as well just go into stocks. Stocks have performed well ahead of high yield bonds, with a similar risk. Risk being defined as price swings of the portfolio. In fact, I will show you exactly how bonds work too, in terms of your returns. One thing you have to understand is there is NO capital appreciation in bonds. None. If you get capital appreciation today, it means capital depreciation MUST happen. It's pure, basic mathematics. Watch as I show you exactly what I mean. https://www.morningstar.com/funds/xnas/vwehx/quote.html https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/performance/vwehx/cumulative-returns https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/VWEHX/performance?p=VWEHX ================================= If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.

An inverted yield curve is basically when the yield on 2 year US government bond exceeds the 10 year US bond yield as worried investors opt to disinvest from risky assets in favour of safer longer term government bonds thus driving down long bond yields below that of nearer term bonds. And the closer the yield curve gets towards towards an inversion the greater the likelihood for a future recession. So far the yield curve inversion has successfully forecast the last 3 economic downturns in the United States. Though the YCI has proved less reliable elsewhere, especially for Australia.

Sub Headline: Using Indexes as Yardsticks to Measure Portfolio Performance Synopsis: Index-based investments are different than individual securities. You’re likely to hear them called investment products, investment instruments, or investment vehicles. They’re also described as passive investments since they aren’t actively managed. Watch part 4 Indices as Benchmarks to Gauge Success from the series Index Investing with syndicated financial columnist and talk show host Steve Savant. Content: Investors use indexes as benchmarks, or yardsticks of investment return. These benchmarks can help you evaluatethe performance of the overall market, particular market sectors and industries, individual securities, and active invest- ment management. For example, you can measure the performance of a large-cap stock portfolio of US companies against the S&P 500, the DJIA, the MSCI Large-Cap 300, or the Russell 1000. What’s more, since the goal of an active investment manager, whether he or she is overseeing a portfolio of individual investments or an actively managed mutual fund, is to provide a stronger return than the relevant index, you can evaluate the manager’s results against that same standard. You’ll find that some managers out- perform some of the time, but only a few of them are able to do so over extended periods. Just because an investment outperforms its benchmark in a particular year doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for your portfolio. You still want to evaluate each investmentin light of your risk tolerance, time horizon, and overall investment strategy. Similarly, an investment that misses its benchmark from time to time may still be a smart addition to your portfolio if it helps you diversify. Not all benchmarks are indexes. Long-term bond yields, for instance, are commonly measured against the yield of the 30-year US Treasury bond. Similarly, the benchmark for cash equivalent investments is the return on the 13-week US Treasury bill. Just as individual investors use market indexes to evaluate the returns their investment advisers are providing, institutional investors—including pension funds, endowments, and mutual funds— use benchmarks to evaluate the professional Contributions from the book Index Investing in this press release are used with permission from Light Bulb Press.
