Topic: The Best Alternative to Bond Funds
Speaker: Marilyn Cohen, CEO, Envision Capital Management
Traders acted out of fear in May and June, dumping their bond funds. What’s an investor to do? Sitting in cash isn’t an option, and dividend-paying stocks and master limited partnerships (MLPs) are not bond equivalents. Individual bonds are your best choice. Are individual bonds more complicated than bond funds? Yes. But the predictable income streams and capital preservation techniques that are available with individual bonds beat bond funds by a mile.
