Oh, cr*p, there's more.

From the METAR board post # 404778 4/27/2012

If you can buy a high-grade stable bond portfolio with a 6% yield,...
And this is from April of THIS YEAR.
Ok, it's now September, but did yields collapse since April and I just didn't notice?

BOND is yielding 2.20%. BND is 2.78%. AGG is 2.40%.

JNK is yielding 7.00%, and Morningstar rates its overall Risk as "High".

Dave, a suggestion. Stick to mortgages and forget making investment advice. Recommending to put your "safe" leg in junk bonds, Geesh!
