This is T&S for their 3.85's of '43 as of ten minutes ago. Small lots are paying the higher prices, suffering the lower yields, almost one-quarter of a percent. The AdjYTM is a quick and dirty calc that assumes 5% inflation and a 25% ord-inc tax-rate.

It's often said that State-run lottries are a tax on those who don't understand math. The same might be said about those who buy bonds that don't offer a real rate of return after taxes and inflation, except that it wouldn't be true. Buying bonds that lose you your purchasing-power is merely a sign of your affluence and Conspicuous Consumption that says, "I'm so rich that I can afford to lose money."

(Must be nice to be one of them. ROTFL)
