Stocks or Bonds for High Yield
I took a stab at answering Valyooo's 'Stocks vs high yield bonds' from a few weeks ago. I can't say I definitively answered it, but I hope the examples help define the trade space a bit.
Two screens, one for junk bonds at FINRA.org and one for high-yielding dividend stocks with the Fool's screener. Review a few of the risks, add some short summaries and - voila - a Fool article.
I added a green thumb on one of the stocks profiled; not sure how long it takes to get ride of the bomb charm. TAL has a pretty simple business model. Lease shipping containers. The company pays a juicy dividend and should be able to grow or at least maintain business if this stumbling, global economy manages to generate more international trade. I don't own any, but it's worth watching.
Fool on! Russ
