    LQD holding up quite well during terrible days. Not looking for great returns, stay flat and collect my nice dividend.

    I was thinking about opening position here and selling monthly or by weekly covered calls - that should generate about 10% annual from the yield and premiums from calls and benefit from the low volatility. Any thoughts?

    I had all but given up on my Jan 2021 LQD 110 Puts, but now all of a sudden I'm up 150%
  • D
    I give it to about end of May, but the writing is on the wall.

    The fed is definitely in here buying today mark it May 13th. I shares is working for the feds to distribute money to bonds through ETF's. This Ishare fund owned by Blackrock will continue to perform well. Also another IShare fund HYG will do well as the feds are saying they will buy high yield etfs also. Not sure how Ishares was chosen by the Feds to sprinkle this bond money around but they were and do not fight the Feds buy LQD at least and enjoy the ride.

    I would just like to ask the Fed how much LQD will return this year? Or should I be asking Blackrock? Is 4% enough or will it return almost 17% like last year? How about HYG, JNK, VCIT, or VCSH? I just need to know so I know whether to buy them or not.

    SHYG looks alot better than this fund now. Higher yield and more stable share price.

    As others here have posted recently, this vehicle is likely headed much lower.

    46% of the LQD bond portfolio is rated BBB. When the downgrades arrive, these bond issues will have to be sold. Good luck selling into a market where liquidity is practically nil.

    Size of the portfolio may start to shrink too. Where will the fund managers find investment grade coupons to buy? They're going to be disappearing quickly.

    Lastly, keep in mind that the Fed has NOT purchased any shares of IG or junk bong ETF's. Was all jawboning.

    They are supporting corporate debt because they know its the black swan, not the virus.
