Stateline, NV (PressExposure) November 29, 2007 -- Stock and bond investing are the two fundamental building blocks of any diversified portfolio. [http://www.bondinvest.info] just launched as an informative reference tool for anyone looking for the specifics of treasury bonds, bills, and notes. Having a basic understanding of this aspect of your retirement nest egg is crucial and this site has lain out quite a bit of valuable information in an easy to read and understand way.
âHow do bonds work?â, âHow much can I make?â, and âHow are bonds rated?â are the three main links off the first page. This site was intentionally designed as an informative reference intended to be bookmarked and used to answer basic questions as they come up from time to time. People who are intimidated by this potentially complicated subject will appreciate the way the writers intentionally kept all the concepts simple and easy to understand.
The balance of the home page is dedicated to a handy table that compares all of the major bond types by value, age, risk, ratings, issuer, and so on. If any of these terms are confusing to you then the dictionary will easily clear up any questions you have.
One of the more helpful tools is a formula that compares the after tax returns of corporate bonds to that of municipals. The bond rating page has a very handy rating table that allows you to see the actual differences between Moodyâs and Fitch ratings and what that equates to when guys like Cramer talk about them.
Readers will also find a handy book page that links to Amazon products relating to bonds â including Alan Greenspanâs new book. As the former head of the Federal Reserve, one would expect him to have a solid grasp on bond investing so they placed a small fact sheet to give you more information on Mr. Greenspan.
Bonds are an important part of any portfolio. This new website should go a long way towards helping you understand the basics of investing in bonds and make you feel more comfortable in your decisions.
