I'll stand by my original statement, since you failed to be clear about what you were calling a "bond". Yes, the hybrids/structured products offer 6% plus. But their corporates don't, as I pointed out.

For a guy who insists on calling a CD a 'bond' like you did just upthread here

In present times, in order to buy a bond responsibly (and CDs are bonds),

you sure don't have much tolerance for structured products. A structured product is actually more like a bond than a CD is. They are generally at least based on debt issued by an entity, while a CD is not.
