|Objective: To help you reduce portfolio risk by fully understanding the relationship between interest rates and long-term securities. The analysis applies to 2- to 30-year debt instruments, preferred stocks, tax-exempts, zero coupon bonds, US Treasury notes and bonds, utility stocks, preferred stocks, high-yielding corporate stocks, and corporate bonds.
More investors, seeing low interest rates for short-term investments and the depressed stock market, are moving into the bond market. But you don’t want to move too many assets too quickly without knowing how to quantify the risk and track prices by tracking interest rates.
The facts: The impact of changing interest rates on bond prices is immediate and dramatic. You lose a percentage of your long-term holdings every time interest rates move higher. And the longer the term, the greater the impact. With a one-point drop in interest rates, a 30-year bond’s price drops 4.7 times more than a 3-year bond.
The questions: What is the dollar relationship between bond prices and interest rates? What facts do I need to know to evaluate bond and other long-term security purchases in today’s market? How do I reduce the risk of price declines? How do I invest today when interest rates are so low?
This Resource Report answers those questions…and shows you how to lower investment risk by laddering security purchases and explains the mathematics of discounted bonds.
