    What’s the Best Way to Invest in Bonds?

    Question: I want to invest in bonds. What’s the best way to go about it? How do yield fluctuations affect prices? What about interest rates?

  • May 7, 2012

    As a Retiree, How Should I Calculate My Asset Allocation?

    Question: When calculating my asset allocation, should I put dividend-paying stocks in the stock or bond category? I’m retired and don’t want to invest too aggressively.

  • Oct 11, 2011

    How Safe Are Savings Bonds?

    Question: How safe are Series I savings bonds? Can things like the recent debt-ceiling crisis affect them?

    – Janice Shabra, Green Valley, Ariz.

  • Aug 18, 2011
    4:42 PM ET

    How Should I Build a Bond Portfolio in My IRA?

    Question: Currently 40% of my retirement funds are in cash because I fear interest rates can only go up.  I’m earning only 1% and I realize this money should probably be invested in bonds.  I would prefer ETFs, but am open to managed funds.  Whatever funds I use would be within my IRA.  I am 64, but do not anticipate needing this money for a very long time, if ever.  My first question is allocation: Is a total bond market ETF adequate, or should I also invest in a foreign fund, high-yield fund, and/or TIPs?  What funds would you recommend, and what allocation?  My second question is even more important to me.  How do I get from cash to bond funds or ETFs?  All at once?  Two percent a month for 50 months? Short, intermediate, or long term?

    -John Duft, St. Jacob, Ill.

    Should I Buy Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities?

    Question: I’ve got most of my money in a tax-free municipal bond fund, but there seems to be a lot of fear in the muni market. Are Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS) a good alternative and if so, how do I buy them?

    – Chris Mooney, Watertown, Mass.
