7 Best Corporate Bonds to Buy and Hold for 2019

Niko Finnigan, co-founder of Delta Wealth Advisors in Indianapolis, says target date bond funds offer an attractive opportunity for buy-and-hold moves. “Target-date bond funds offer a yield to maturity, which means bondholders can calculate how much they can expect to earn until the bond fund matures at a given time,” he says. IBDK may be suited to short-term, buy-and-hold strategies, since “investors can capture much of the bond market’s yield by purchasing short-term bonds,” Finnigan says. The exchange-traded fund offers exposure to investment-grade corporate bonds maturing between Jan. 1, 2019 and Dec. 15, 2019. It’s an option to consider for managing interest rate risk.
