I don't know much about investing in bonds, but it seems pretty involved to me. Since it's not my money, I don't want to have to help my friend buy and sell bonds all the time.



they *idea* is to buy half a dozen or so and hold to maturity .. at maturity, buy another one.

NOT a lot of buying and selling...


but picking the Good Ones can be involved.
(and taxes -can- be more involved than you might like_)
