One way to increase the yield of a portfolio is to accept lower rated securities into the portfolio. Before buying a bond investment fund you should be sure the ratings of the bonds in the portfolio are consistent with your investment objectives. Corporate bonds are subject to “event risk”. Event risk takes place when the corporation changes its characteristics in significant ways. The event is likely to be a surprise to the bond owners and can be a surprise to management. This might take place because of a change in strategy but it can also take place because of merger and acquisition events.

Corporate bonds are reasonable investments for retirement accounts that are not taxed currently (such as Keough, 401 K, or IRA’s). There are private agencies who rate the debt of corporation according to the amount of risk associated with the securities. The highest rating offered is AAA and the next highest rating is AA. These are extremely high ratings and one can accept these ratings as evidence that competent honest analysts have found these securities to be relatively immune from default risk.

Preferred Stock The second type of security to be considered is preferred stock. Preferred stock is an equity security and offers little legal protection to its owners (unlike debt). While preferred stock is senior to common stock it is junior to debt.
