I have some questions about this article. You say that it's a bond that trades like a stock. I do not know about this kind of stuff, so pardon my questions.

Does the value of the bond/stock go up and down, or is it a constant? For example, when I buy a dividend paying stock, the stock goes up and down. Also, the dividend can go up and down. If I were to buy CVB, would it be possible for the stock/bond price go up or down? Also, is the 7.75% yield a constant, or is it possible that that yield will change?

Also, with such a good rate of return, would it be best to hold this in a retirement account such as a Roth IRA to avoid paying taxes on the income?

Also, when would I receive the 7.75%? Is it paid out annually, quarterly, or what? Would the money just appear in my brokerage account as if it were a dividend payment?

I really love the Rising Stars Portfolio as you all open us to totally new ideas that we would have never otherwise considered. Thanks in advance for your response!
