(Update: The markets caved today but it appears to be a temporary pullback.)
Sometimes stable no-growth companies can offer nice yields on their bonds.
Dun & Bradstreet is offering a Corporate Bond that matures in June 2020 and offers 3.7%. This is not bad for dividend investors that want a nice steady yield.
You can buy as few as ONE bond ($1000) and we suggest you look into this offering for the conservative income producing portion of your portfolio.
Corporate bonds will fluctuate in price, up and down….similar to a US Treasury. As a holder of Corporates you should not care about the changes in price. As you near the maturity date, the prices will approach $1000 per bond.
It is Critical you buy Quality Companies when buying corporate bonds to ensure to receive your money back…………..in other words do not buy crappy companies that offer high yields, BUT could go broke. Easier said then done sometimes.

For new readers, our Core Portfolio is a stay rich portfolio, NOT a get rich portfolio. We own conservative positions that pay dividends that are especially suited for retirees….. or for the conservative portion of younger folks portfolios. For diversification we DO hold some leveraged (risky) positions which offer 8 and 12% (HDLV and MLPL) HDLV own stocks like Verizon, ATT, Philip Morris, Duke and Southern Co. Only the investor can determine whether they want to take on risk but in return get better yield. .
