Advantages of Investing in Municipal Bonds
This video discusses the advantages of investing in municipal bonds: namely, the historically lower risk of default (relative to corporate bonds) and tax-exempt nature of most municipal bonds. The video provides an example to show how the after-tax return of a municipal bond can be higher than a corporate bond that has a higher pretax yield. The video also demonstrates why municipal bonds are more attractive to high-income investors by showing that the tax-equivalent yield of a municipal bond increases as a person's tax rate increases.

Disadvantages of Investing in Municipal Bonds
This video discusses several disadvantages of investing in municipal bonds. Municipal bonds typically are less liquid than U.S. Treasury securities or corporate bonds, which means they may be harder to sell on the secondary market or come at a significant markup or dealer spread when being purchased. In additon, municipal bonds are frequently callable, which means investors could be subject to reinvestment risk if interest rates fall and the issuer decides to call the bonds (leaving the investor to reinvest the proceeds at the lower rate of interest).

Prerefunded Bonds
This video discusses prerefunded bonds, which are a type of municipal bond that is backed by U.S. Treasury securities. The video provides a comprehensive example to illustrate how bonds become prerefunded: an issuer, wanting to take advantage of lower interest rates, refinances by issuing a second set of bonds at the lower market rate and then uses the proceeds to back the original bond issuance (which are now "prerefunded"). When the prerefunded bonds become callable, the issuer repurchases them from investors. Edspira is your source for business and financial education.

Should I Buy Municipal Bonds?
Is it a good idea to buy municipal bonds in this economy? I want to invest in something safe but with a decent yield. Should I buy municipal bonds? You can get both taxable muni bonds and tax-exempt bonds. Tax exempt bonds are popular for people approaching retirement so that they don't have to pay income taxes on the returns. Tax-exempt sounds good. It improves the rate of return. You are taking a big risk on interest rates. If the interest rates skyrocket, you'll lose money on the bonds. That is true for any bonds. You're taking a risk that the city isn't going to go bankrupt like Detroit. That is a very rare event. Because many cities in the Rust Belt, California and Northeast borrowed heavily to pay for infrastructure and unions, there are hundreds of municipalities at risk of bankruptcy. Building roads is an investment. Bonds are like credit cards for cities. They built stadiums, convention centers and even theme parks, and in some cases, are paying off the bonds for buildings that no longer exist. That is bad, or sad. I can't decide. But you mitigate the risk by buying bond funds, instead of just individual bonds. Infrastructure projects like roads, bridges and schools build up a city's value. That will improve the tax base over time. Billion dollar schools don't teach better than cheaper ones, and cities using bonds to pay over-priced teachers and pensions could easily default. Sounds like you are dead set against muni bonds. You don't see bonds as an investment in your community? They spend billions on education and end up with lots of functionally illiterate kids. They spend billions on stadiums for losing teams and come up with numbers to make it sound good. If it builds the community - For as much as my property taxes went up to pay for the new stadium bonds, we all ought to get free lifetime tickets, not pay $10 for parking and $30 to walk in. You're right. One city may do stupid stuff with the money -- bond fund it is.

Investopedia Video: What Is A Municipal Bond?
Municipal bonds, often called munis, are considered a debt instrument because when the investor purchases one, he or she is essentially loaning funds to the authority that issued it. In exchange, the authority promises to pay interest, called the coupon rate, during the years prior to maturity, at which point it repays the bond's par value.

Explaining Bond Prices and Bond Yields
​In this revision video we work through some numerical examples of the inverse relationship between the market price of fixed-interest government bonds and the yields on those bonds. ​Government bonds are fixed interest securities. This means that a bond pays a fixed annual interest – this is known as the coupon The coupon (paid in £s, $s, Euros etc.) is fixed but the yield on a bond will vary The yield is effectively the interest rate on a bond. The yield will vary inversely with the market price of a bond 1.When bond prices are rising, the yield will fall 2.When bond prices are falling, the yield will rise - - - - - - - - - MORE ABOUT TUTOR2U ECONOMICS: Visit tutor2u Economics for thousands of free study notes, videos, quizzes and more: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics A Level Economics Revision Flashcards: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/alevel-economics-revision-flashcards A Level Economics Example Top Grade Essays: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/exemplar-essays-for-a-level-economics

The Time-Varying Interest Rate Sensitivity of Municipal Bonds
Haim A Mozes http://jwm.iprjournals.com/content/18/2/47 This article demonstrates that municipal bonds’ interest rate sensitivity is a function of how inexpensive municipal bonds are relative to Treasury bonds. The difference between municipal bond yields and Treasury bond yields is used to measure their relative cost. Key results are that 1) the less expensive municipal bonds are relative to Treasury bonds, the lower the interest rate sensitivity of municipal bonds; and 2) after controlling for the level of municipal bond yields, the cheaper municipal bonds are relative to Treasury bonds, the higher the return on municipal bonds. These results have important implications for investors seeking to hedge the interest rate risk of municipal bonds or to evaluate municipal bond investment opportunities.

US Savings Bonds
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/us-savings-bonds US Savings Bonds By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com US savings bonds are often thought of as a poor man's route to savings. Many aggressive investors and traders scoff at the idea of buying US savings bonds every payday and holding them for as long as thirty years. However, there are a number of advantages to buying and holding US savings bonds. As with all investment opportunities a little fundamental analysis of the subject is useful. So before comparing US savings bonds to dividend stocks, US Treasuries, or municipal bonds let us look at a few specifics about US savings bonds. US Savings Bonds These bonds are available in Series EE and Series I. Electronic series EE bonds are purchased via a Treasury Direct account for face value and paper series EE bonds are purchased at their face value. One earns a fixed rate of interest for the thirty year term of the bond. The treasury guarantees that the bonds will double in face value in twenty years. Series I bonds sell at face value at interest rates guaranteed to exceed that of inflation. These bonds are not tradable. The maturity periods can vary. For example, if you buy a bond with a value of $50 for $25, you'll have to wait at least 17 years to get back your investment from the government. US savings bonds are exempt from state and local taxes. Federal tax is deferred until the bond is cashed in. Interest may be tax exempt if you can document that interest was used to pay qualified higher education expenses and provide that your income falls within federal guidelines for this benefit. As with many long term investments you will commonly cash in US savings bonds when you are retired and when your tax rate is low. US savings bonds pay interest twice a year and are redeemed at par value at maturity. Savings Bonds come in eight values: $50, $75, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000. Why Purchase US Savings Bonds? There are certainly lots of investments that can make a lot more money over the years than US savings bonds. And there are lots of investments that can disappear in a puff of smoke during an economic downturn. US savings bonds are like money in the bank. A good rule of thumb for investing is to first pay off credit card debt, invest in your home, and put six months of savings away for emergencies. Think of US savings bonds in this context. US Savings Bonds versus Municipal Bonds Like municipal bonds, US savings bonds are free of state and local taxes. Unlike municipal bonds US savings bonds are less likely to default than when cities like Detroit declare bankruptcy. US Savings Bonds versus Dividend Stocks Dividend stocks are a common way to balance the risk in an aggressive stock portfolio. However, even large cap stocks can fall in price or fall out of favor. When markets are falling US savings bonds still maintain their value and pay interest. Buying US Savings Bonds Bonds are purchased with a Treasury Direct account. For such an account you need a social security number, a driver's license, a checking or savings account, and an email address. According to the US Treasury site: Minimum Purchase: $25 Maximum Purchase: $30,000 per person per year Interest: 90% of 6-month average of 5-year Treasury security yields, added monthly and paid when the bond is cashed Minimum Term Of Ownership: 12 months Early Redemption Penalty: Forfeit three most recent months' interest if cashed before 5 years http://youtu.be/YiLuGt62mZA

🔴Should I Move Out of Stocks and Into Tax Free Municipal Bonds. The Stock Market is Dropping
Why Not Just Put My Stocks into a Tax Free Municipal Bond and Collect 5% for 20 Years. Tax Benefits of Municipal Bonds First, and most important, the interest income is exempt from federal income tax. For example, if you earn a 4% return on a taxable investment and you are normally in the 25% bracket, your after-tax return is only 3%. Even worse, it declines to 2.42% for someone in the current top 39.6% bracket. Conversely, a tax-free municipal bond yielding 4% is the equivalent of a taxable bond yielding (not counting other investment characteristics) 6.62% for a top-bracket taxpayer. What are Municipal Bonds? Municipal bonds are debt instruments issued by city and local governments. They are normally used to raise money for capital investment in local projects such as schools, streets and highways, bridges, hospitals, public housing, and utilities. Types of Municipal Bonds Municipal bonds are generally issued as one of three types of debt obligation: General Obligation (GO) Bonds repay based on the “full faith and credit of the issuer” and are considered the most secure type of bond, carrying the lowest interest rate. Revenue Bonds repay from a specified future stream of income, such as a utility or payments from customers or tenants. Assessment Bonds obligate repayment from property tax assessment within the municipality. Advantages Free from Federal Taxes. Free from State and Local Taxes. Tax Advantaged Compound Growth and/or Income. Lower Volatility Than Stocks (Fixed Income Assets). High Level of Liquidity. Disadvantages Bond Yields May Not Beat Inflation. Interest Rate Risk. Risk of Default and Loss of Capital.

How to Reduce Taxes Under New Tax Law (2018) Interest Income
Interest and dividend income are other areas of the tax code that punishes the ignorant. You have income on lines 8a, 8b, 9a and 9b? Why? Is there a strategic reason for earning this income in order to pay tax? If so, that's fine. Maybe you need the cash to help pay the bills, pay tuition, take a vacation, etc. However if you're receiving this income because of how your investments are designed without any strategic intent, I suggest you consider a different plan of action Let's start by looking at what types of income you have. If you have interest income, from bonds and/or CDs, this income is taxed at ordinary income rates. Worse yet, there is NOTHING you can do about it other than paying the tax on it...as ordinary income. Consider moving ANY holding you have that yields ordinary income(OI), into your Traditional IRA in order to defer those OI taxes as long as you possibly can. Remember your IRA is taxed as Ordinary Income anyway. So, having an IRA taxed at those rates PLUS having investment income taxed at the same means your paying too much in tax. If you have municipal bond income, i.e., 'tax exempt interest' consider scrapping those and instead moving into corporate and/or government bonds inside your IRA. Because municipals are tax free they offer a much lower interest rate than corporate and government bonds. So, for simplicity, say a municipal bonds yields 2.5% a corporate bond will pay more because it's income is taxed. A corporate bond with similar maturity date may pay 4%. This means it takes $320,000 in assets to yield $8,000 in income for the municipal bond but only $227,272 for the corporate bond AFTER taxes for someone in the 12% bracket! That is a significant difference in the allocation amount to corporate bonds over tax free bonds to receive the same after tax income. We don't municipal bonds, unless we're in the higher tax brackets, those above 22%. We don't want ANY bonds in our taxable account either. We want bonds in our Traditional IRA. Secondly, we want dividend paying stocks, the investments that give us income on lines 9a and 9b, in our ROTH IRA. DIvidends we don't need only cause higher taxes. Avoid that. Move your income-oriented stocks to your Roth. Lastly, we want your most aggressive holdings, ideally the ones with little to no dividends or capital gains in your taxable accounts. The unrealized appreciation on these investments cause you NO tax. Because these holdings are aggressive they should pay no dividends whatsoever. Lastly when it does come time to sell a position in order to generate cash, you can work the tax code to do it in the most tax-favored way possible. You can't do with other income you receive from your investments. Finally, at death, the growth of these aggressive accounts transfer TAX FREE to your heirs because of the step up basis rules. IRA accounts don't have that benefit. Roth IRA accounts don't have a step up in basis but they are tax free anyway, which is just as good. At the end of the day, it's up to YOU to understand the tax code to take advantage of it to your benefit. If your advisor isn't helping you with this, well, hate to sound brutal but seek a new advisor! ================================= If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.

Municipal Securities - Basic Analysis
This is the third video in a series of presentations prepared by FDIC staff to provide an overview of key elements in the evaluation of municipal securities. This series of presentations is designed for community bank management, and is targeted at those individuals involved in the supervision of the securities portfolio, including members of the investment and asset/liability management committees. This video discusses a basic method for analyzing municipal securities that can be used for pre-purchase analysis and on-going monitoring, including an assessment of credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. This basic framework may be sufficient for lower-risk municipal bonds, and can also be used to identify higher-risk bonds where expanded analysis is warranted. The video also provides a list of resources to assist in the overall risk management process.

Municipal Bond Investment
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/municipal-bond-investment Municipal Bond Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Municipal bond investment may be an attractive option for investors in the coming year. When the Fed eventually cuts its quantitative easing stimulus plan rates will go up. That will make bonds attractive. However, with higher interest rates come higher taxes. Municipal bonds have the advantage of not carrying a Federal Tax burden. Municipal bond investment may be a good conservative version of today's value investing. Municipal Bonds A municipal bond is issued by a municipality. That is local government or government agencies, not the state or federal government. Issuers can include school districts, airports, utilities, and more. The bonds can be a general obligation of the municipality to repay or may be tied to an income stream such as taxes assessed at an airport, or property tax assessed to support a school district. What makes municipal bonds attractive to those in high tax brackets is that their interest is typically exempt from federal taxes and often free of state or local taxes as well. When an investor looks at the return from taxable corporate bonds or dividends on dividend stocks he or she will calculate the return on investment after taxes when comparing the investment to a municipal bond investment. Safety of Municipal Bond Investment Municipal bond investment is historically pretty safe. That should be said as the headlines are full of news on huge state and local deficits. However, over the last decades the default rate on municipal bonds has been less than 1% while the default rate on corporate bonds has been over 10%. Nevertheless, municipal bond investment in more than one municipality in order to balance risk is not a bad idea. A fundamental analysis of municipal bonds should include a number of specifics. Not all municipal bonds are tax exempt! A bond offering will typically come with certification by a law firm that the bonds are tax exempt and to what degree. If you as the investor do not live in the municipality or state where the bonds are issued you will probably not be eligible for a local or state tax exempt status, if it is part of the bond. Bonds are rated by agencies such as Moody's or Standard and Poor's. To the extent that there is a risk of default it will be wise to make sure that the bonds have an investment grade rating. As of 2008 there had never been a default on a Moody's or Standard and Poor's Aaa/AAA municipal bond or a Standard and Poor's AA rated bond. Investment grade municipals in general have a historic rate of default of less than a fifth of a percent. As with all investments the investor should sit down with paper and pencil (or at the computer) and calculate the return on investment of municipal bonds versus other investments considering the relatively low level of risk involved. Depending upon if the stimulus program goes away rates may or may not rise. If so municipal bond investment may be an attractive vehicle for those soon to be paying higher taxes. http://youtu.be/x4jjzIC7gIs

What is MUNICIPAL BOND ARBITRAGE? What does MUNICIPAL BOND ARBITRAGE mean? MUNICIPAL BOND ARBITRAGE meaning - MUNICIPAL BOND ARBITRAGE definition - MUNICIPAL BOND ARBITRAGE explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ?sub_confirmation=1 Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Municipal bond arbitrage, also called municipal bond relative value arbitrage, municipal arbitrage, or just muni arb, generally consists of building a leveraged portfolio of high-quality, tax-exempt municipal bonds and simultaneously hedging the duration risk in that municipal bond portfolio by shorting the equivalent taxable corporate bonds. These corporate equivalents are typically interest rate swaps referencing Libor or BMA (short for Bond Market Association). Muni arb is a relative value strategy that seizes upon an inefficiency that is related to government tax policy; interest on municipal bonds is exempt from federal income tax. Because the source of this arbitrage is artificially imposed by government regulation, it has persisted (i.e., it has not been "arbed away") for decades. The arbitrage manifests itself in the form of a relatively cheap longer maturity municipal bond, which is a municipal bond that yields significantly more than 65% of a corresponding taxable corporate bond. The steeper slope of the municipal yield curve allows participants to collect more after-tax income from the municipal bond portfolio than is spent on the interest rate swap; the carry is greater than the hedge expense. Positive, tax-free carry can reach into the double digits. The bet in municipal bond arbitrage is that, over a longer period of time, two similar instruments--municipal bonds and interest rate swaps--will correlate with each other; they are both very high quality credits, have the same maturity and are denominated in U.S. dollars. Credit risk and duration risk are largely eliminated in this strategy. However, basis risk arises from use of an imperfect hedge, which results in significant, but range-bound principal volatility. The end goal is to limit this principal volatility, eliminating its relevance over time as the high, consistent, tax-free cash flow accumulates.
