Today I finally got a good price on Etrade for my FNMA zeros Feb 2012. I tried to sell them lots of times before but got lousy bids, but got 98 cents on the dollar today. So the buyer gets a 2.1 or 2.2% yield.

From WSJ last week, Scientific Games (I think that was their name) has some junk yielding around 10%, due in 5 or 6 years, selling around 90, I think. And the company supposedly got a contract for lottery scratch off tickets for Holland. (Maybe there's a Word Cup prize in the ticket mix, but with the Dutch's luck, some lowlife from Argentina will probably come over and buy it).

...That's not a reccommendation for the bond by the way, I just noticed the article.
