Rick Rieder (BlackRock) was saying just that on WSW when I watched it, yesterday. And he was also touting bonds, though not junk. All of the talking heads I'm hearing--- including Desai and Feeney on WSW yesterday--- rather like bonds of higher quality, because finally, investors can receive a decent yield from them.

Still stalking new or add-on positions in dividend-paying companies. Almost had a few orders fire on Friday, but not quite. :/
What will next year like when the Fed reaches the terminal rate, 5.0-5.5%? I do hope the inflation would settle near 4-5% range, but that is far from the 2% target.
It is possible that the Fed may manage to have a soft landing. For now, the treasury yield curve is still inverted as of 12/16/22, and that indicates a coming of a recession in 2023. The 26 weeks T bill is now the sweet spot.
Looking only at year-over-year is missing the story. If the Fed is going to keep it up until YOY is down to 2%, actual current inflation at the time is likely to be near zero. And that would mean economic activity would be in the toilet.
Family member just took job at frt, v solid reit
But Felix Zulauf talked about another global inflation explosion a couple of years from now in his recent interviews.

Continuing to literally just tip-toe in JRSH. Still miles and miles away from its 1-year target price that I see. It's been a fecal several days, esp. retail. And JRSH makes clothing for retail sale. No Santa Claus rally that I can see in '22!!!
I’m also looking to reenter the fixed income space, initially via preferreds. Flaherty & Crumrine Is a solid firm in that area…looking at FFC, most likely after the next rate hike.
Seems there may be quite a bit of tax harvesting happening this month as 2022 comes to a disappointing end.
Ho, Ho, Ho, Derf
Plan to get back into DOXIX (replaced DODIX in 401k) soon.
Dodge & Cox is a good firm.
Have you access to MMKT accounts/funds where you invest, that have a portfolio in mostly U.S. gov't issues? 'Course, these don't have the FDIC coverage, but.....
I mention, as many investment houses have some similar MMKT funds, relative to yields.
These two are core cash account positions at FIDO.....where one's monies move back and forth from a sale of whatever and then available for a new purchase. These are a standard part of an account; be it taxable or IRA.
FDRXX, 7 day yield = 3.83%
SPAXX, 7 day yield = 3.8%
This MMKT fund must be purchased, not unlike purchasing any other mutual fund.
FZDXX,7 day yield = 4.25%
Although the first two core cash choices offer a decent yield, we've moved cash monies into the FZDXX MMKT fund.
The yields have had a large upward yield change this week.
Note: we've chosen to not purchase CD's.
Anyhoo.......if your cash is in a similar core cash position, you may already be receiving a decent yield.
Same with google finance page. But it IS real! When I move $$$ from checking acct. to sweep acct at TRP, it goes there: PRTXX. US Treasury money.
M* DOES provide a YTD performance number, though. Silly: can't identify it, but when I give a little push, M* says, "Oh, ya. Here it is. We dunno much about this one, but YTD return is 1.33%."
At TRP, the 7-day yield is 4.01.
NHYDY is up for me by +14.66%. BHB = +14.51% ytd.
YTD pain: still down handsomely, just not as bad as before: portfolio is down by -12% YTD now. Ouch. Among funds, best is PRFDX Equity Income. I bought at a good time, for a change.
