Where to Buy 7% Spanish Bonds

Spanish bond yields notched new highs Monday, as investors continued to flee the country for safer havens. But for yield-hungry investors with an appetite for risk, does the selloff represent a buying opportunity?

Stephen Finn / Shutterstock.com

The country’s 10-year government bond rose above 7% for the first time today since the creation of the euro in 1999. It’s also above the level at which other debt-laden countries, including Greece, Portugal and Ireland, were forced to request full-blown sovereign bailouts from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.  Some analysts, however, say Spain’s economy is so large, central banks will go to great lengths to prevent a default of the nation’s sovereign debt. “If Spain doesn’t default or restructure, you’re going to see those bond yields come down and the price of those bonds go up,” says Ethan Anderson, a senior portfolio manager with Rehmann Financial who has been buying shares of global bond funds with exposure to Spain.

For regular investors who want to wager on Spain sorting out its debt problems, only two mutual funds and one exchange-traded fund invest more than 5% of their portfolios in Spanish bonds, according to fund researcher Lipper. The $222 million Transamerica International Bond fund (TABAX), which launched a retail share class in March, has 5.3% in Spanish bonds. (Institutional shares of the fund returned an average 6.8% a year over the past three years. Anderson uses the $1.7 billion Wells Fargo Advantage International Bond fund (ESIYX), which invests 4.6% in Spanish bonds and has also gained an average 6.8% a year over the past three years.

Of course, investors who are looking to place a bigger bet on the country can buy individual bonds issued by the Spanish government by going through their brokerage firm. (There is no equivalent of Treasurydirect.gov, where U.S. investors can purchase Treasurys via an auction.) Because bonds are sold over the counter and don’t trade on an exchange like stocks, brokers will need to ask around to find out which financial firms have Spanish bonds and what prices they’re selling for, says Anderson. Investors typically need to invest at least $10,000, he says; the bigger the purchase, the better the price.

Some advisers and analysts say yields on Spanish bonds are too tempting for investors to ignore – especially compared to crowded safe-haven investments. At 1.6%, the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond is near an all-time low and 10-year German bunds are hovering at 1.45% yield. In contrast, bonds from countries like Spain have room for higher returns as their bond yields come down, says Anderson. Spain’s economy is so large that the European Central Bank, along with other governments’ central banks, will be willing to help prop up the economy, he says. European leaders may give Spain more flexibility and time to take austerity measures required before the country can receive bailout funds, says Anderson.

Still, advisers caution that Spanish bonds remain a risky gamble. Similar to the situation in Greece, the austerity measures required for the government to qualify for bailout funds can also create more strain for Spain’s economy, where the unemployment rate is already above 20%. If Spain restructures or is forced to default on its bond payments, bondholders may suffer losses, advisers say. “I’d be more comfortable going to Las Vegas than I would be investing in Spanish bonds right now,” says Brian Kazanchy a wealth manager at RegentAtlantic Capital in Morristown, N.J.

Investors can find similar yields elsewhere, although with different kinds of risk. High-yield bonds in the U.S., for instance, are yielding between 7% and 8%, says Kazanchy. While many of these companies boast strong cash balances, they have heavy debt loads that increase their default risk, he says. Another option: master limited partnerships, publicly traded companies that transport and store oil and natural gas and offer payouts as high as 6%. However, MLPs are often difficult for retail investors to understand and have complicated tax reporting requirements.

      this is the wrong forum, but its a simple. for xp right click on desktop > properties > desktop tab > customize desktop > click icon and change. For an OS before xp it should be in basically the same place.
