We are looking at some HIGH RISK corporate bonds. Buy these only if you have a large portfolio and are willing to take the risk……altho we really doubt having any problems with these tobacco bonds.
Some people may have issues with investing in ‘addictive’ substances, but as long as they are legal, we will take the 13.8% yield.

CUSIP: 018772AS2. Maturity July 2021. NOTE: You should plan on holding corporate bonds to maturity.
MOVIES: I guess we are not the target audience for Spider-Man. What a boring piece of trash. It is making a lot of money but we suggest you pass. Of most interest is the new Star Trek TV series, if we can figure out how the hell to subscribe to the CBS All Access….all this technology is frustrating to us.
