PostSubject: Bonds 2014   Wed Dec 24, 2014 11:21 am

It looks like bonds squeaked through another year without
much damage.  I sure wouldn't have bet on it myself.

They're really not investments, just loaning money to
someone at a fixed rate that never changes so it can't
grow.  I've watched them for years and don't really
know why people buy them, especially bond funds that
trade them all the time.

Anyway, I had one quote in the 122 rules of investing and
just got a stated fact a few minutes ago:

Remember what Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel says: "You have never lost money in stocks over any 20-year period, but you have wiped out half your portfolio in bonds [after inflation]. So which is the riskier asset?"

In the 24 months from June 2004, the FOMC raised the federal funds rate from 1% to 5.25% in 17 increments of 25 basis points each.
