    Why do people buy this instead of an actual treasury at this duration? Convenience? You have price fluctuations and a fluctuating yield. Short-term, it seems like you'd just buy Treasuries directly.

    SHY in one year from $86 to $82 a $4 loss and your yield is only .52%
    I could step over to the real US Government Website and Buy the ONE Year T-Bill and earn 4% and have no loss of principal. Zero chance of losing any money buying US Gov from the US Gov?

    SHY invests 1 to 3 year US Gov Treasury and Pays .43% interest
    I could open a US Gov Treasury account and make 3.60% interest
    Why would anyone buy this ETF?

    The last dividend was $.10. That is $1.20 per year. The yield would be 1.20/82 = 1.5%. Why is this paying only 1.5% when the 2 year treasury is paying 3.5% ?

    Will we get to the 2006 low?
    Maybe, I'm still a buyer here.
    In 2 yrs this will be a bargain price.
    Bullish

    SHY looks like it is about to drop. Be careful guys. I have been reading (http://Achieverspot.tech) and their stocks have been doing way better.

    Why take the risk of holding bonds that pay near zero percent? This paid $.025 last month. That is a yield of 0.36%. There is no safety in bonds. Bonds are return free risk.

    More pain to come.
    Should be attractive by early 23.

    As fed hikes rates the bond yields should rise but the bond prices will drop. This should go down as bond prices drop.
