    Is High-Yield the New Safe Haven Amid Rising Rates?

    With the extended bull market in full swing, the risk-on mentality of investors have led them to gravitate towards high-yield debt assets, but with the Federal Reserve interest rate decision looming next week, has high-yield become somewhat of a safe haven? As the curtain closes on the bull run and the late market cycle, the natural propensity for fixed-income investors is to shift back to safer government debt, but in today's environment of rising rates, high-yielding bond strategies may be the safer option. According to Sean Hanlon, Chairman, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Hanlon Investment Management, these high-yielding bonds could be the best defense against more rate hikes to come despite most having below-investment grade debt issues.

    Tesla Junk Bond Prices Head Down as Elon Musk Lights Up

    Tesla's high-yield bond prices followed the electric car manufacturer's shares, which took a deep dive as the stock plummeted roughly 7% at the opening of today's trading session after reports surfaced that its top executives headed for the exits after founder and CEO Elon Musk smoked marijuana on "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast. Additionally, the price of the bond has fallen about 9% over the last three months, pressured down further by Musk's executive decisions with respect to Tesla within the past month. Musk's behavior on the podcast is a culmination of what has been tumultuous times for the electric carmaker founder, which started when he first sent a tweet that he was considering taking the company private at a price of $420 a share, citing that it was "the best path forward." The tweet to privatize Tesla halted trading of the company's shares for 92 minutes, leaving Tesla investors in a panic shortly thereafter.

    Low Supply a Catalyst for Junk Bond ETFs

    3 Fixed-Income ETFs for the Risk-Tolerant Investor

    "No risk, no reward" is an age-old adage thrown around in the investment community, explicitly stating that those who take on a high degree of risk will reap the benefits of their emboldened maneuvers. In the fixed-income space, it can refer to foregoing credit risk in order to obtain the highest of yields--a paragon of risk-on bond investing. A Wall Street Journal article recently stated that bonds with less-than-investment-grade quality or junk bonds, have been outperforming their peers, particularly with respect to flattening yields of benchmark Treasury debt and even investment-grade corporate debt.
