Are Bonds a Good Investment Now?
By Barbara Friedberg in Advanced Investing, Asset Allocation, Bond, Investing, Reader Question | 15 comments

A reader wrote in and asked, “Why should I invest in bonds? After all, the yields are low and don’t bond values drop as interest rates rise?”

I started investing in bonds in my mid 20’s and have enjoyed their dividends for years. When interest rates were high, I even received double digit bond interest (coupon) payments – can you believe that today?

Understand the importance of bond investing. Learn why bonds remain a good investment today.

Investing in Bonds for Beginners

“Are bonds a good investment now?” is a great question. After all, bonds, typically offer lower returns than stock investments. And, when interest rates are rising – like they are now – bond values tend to decline.

Yet, bond investing is a good idea.

Let’s start with a quick bond investing 101. And, if you already know about investing in bonds for beginners, then skip down to the “Why are Bonds a Good Investment’” section.

A bond is similar to a loan, where you are the lender. When you buy a corporate bond, you lend money to a corporation. The company might use the money to grow or acquire another business. With government bonds, you lend money to the government. A municipal government might use your bond investment to build a stadium or repair roads.

How Much Does a Bond Cost?
Bonds are issued in set amounts, typically $1,000. This is called par or face value. Bonds also have established maturities, anywhere from a few months to 30 years. If you buy a bond at issue, you’ll pay the par value, but if you buy it later, it might cost more (a premium) or less (a discount) than the face value.
