    3 Bond ETFs Warren Buffett Would Actually Like

    "If you had to choose between buying long-term bonds or equities, I would choose equities in a minute," Buffett told CNBC's "Squawk Box" in an interview earlier this year. Buffett continued to lambaste bonds, telling Berkshire Hathaway shareholders in an annual letter that debt issues were not a lower-risk investment over the long term compared to stocks. "I want to quickly acknowledge that in any upcoming day, week or even year, stocks will be riskier — far riskier — than short-term U.S. bonds," Buffett wrote.

    A Cost-Effective Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF

    Investors looking for the income benefits of investment-grade corporate bonds while limiting duration risk have plenty of options to consider in the world of ETFs. One of the most cost-effective options is the Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH) . In a rising rate environment, the price of older bonds with lower rates will fall since these older debt securities appear less attractive and traders would demand a discount on the older lower-yielding debt.

    Fear of Rising Rates Can Sow the Seeds of Bad Behavior

    Rising interest rates can hurt investors' fixed-income portfolios. In this article, I will examine the case of  PowerShares Senior Loan Portfolio BKLN , which has been a popular choice for investors looking to lessen the risk of rising rates. It is also perhaps the poster child for the futility of investors' efforts to stay a step ahead of the Fed. I will also explore other options from the menu of fixed-income exchange-traded funds, and beyond, that might help investors better manage interest-rate risk in their portfolios.

    How Big a Problem Could US Debt Become?

    If we turn back the clock to before the recession, we find that US debt levels weren’t this high, and unconventional programs like quantitative easing helped the economy recover from the Great Recession. The US Treasury must deal with higher interest rates and borrow more to keep the economy running, and this cycle could turn into a downward spiral unless revenues increase. The US Treasury is the king of the credit markets, and it’s followed by investment-grade (LQD)(VCSH) bonds and junk (JNK) bonds.
