What Should Scare Every Bond Investor

Posted by D4L | Friday, October 12, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Bonds look very, very, expensive compared to stocks when focusing on their ability to generate income. Large Cap Stocks (the S&P 500) are now paying a higher dividend yield than the 10-year treasury.

This is very unusual. Since 1990, the treasury note / S&P 500 Dividend yield ratio has averaged 2.4. As stocks have a track record of dividend growth and a treasury bond has a fixed coupon payment, it makes sense that stocks should generate less income than bonds. However, something right now is not right!
