SPY 1825.00 Go to “Investments Core Portfolio” for current holdings.
FFCS is offering individual corporate bonds at 4.0%. Cusip is 3133FXFF9. This bond offers a reasonable but not spectacular rate of return. You will want to hold this to maturity which is 2029….a long time!!! So this is really a parking spot for your cash allocation money that is safe and also provides a decent return….these bonds are not really suited for the younger investor with smaller portfolios-who are trying to grow their money. Each bond is priced at $1000.00 and you are guaranteed your money back at maturity. Corporate bonds CAN be sold at any time before maturity but the price could be higher or lower than the price you paid.

This blog discusses dividend paying investments that I find appropriate for myself…..and for investors seeking dividends and income. I am not an investment professional. You must do your own research before buying any position. All gains or losses that you realize are based on your choices.
