I'm a first time poster getting ready to retire and
looking for a good mix of income. My broker indicates that I can get a reliable stream of income from the
highest rated corporate bonds. However, I have never
invested in bonds before, except in 401K Bond Mutual
Funds where the results were negative. What are
suggestions as I possibly add this diversification as
an alternative to CDs? Obviously I realize the bonds
are not guaranteed. Will appreciate ideas. Thanks.
