    Play Defense With This Treasury ETF

    Ultrasafe investments, like short-term Treasuries, are an effective way to diversify an all-stock portfolio as they tend to hold up well during periods of market distress. Treasuries are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, so they don't carry the credit risk that is embedded in corporate bonds.  Schwab Short-Term U.S. Treasury ETF SCHO provides great exposure to these stable assets.

    Bond ETFs and Others Vie for Top Spots

    Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) had an incredible year in 2017. A recent report by ETF.com indicates that ETFs gathered new assets totaling more than $450 billion for that year, in some part thanks to the strength of the U.S. equity space.
