Bond issuers promise to pay bond holders a given amount of interest for a pre-determined amount of time until the loan is repaid in full (otherwise known as the maturity date).

Fixed-rate bonds pay out a pre-determined amount of interest each year, while floating-rate bonds can pay higher or lower interest each year depending on prevailing market interest rates.. However, facts—like interest rates, earnings and other economic data—continue to suggest a slow-growth-not-no-growth economy with “wealth-building opportunities.” Jim notes: “Add to some of your best long-term managers who are capable of stepping in on days when the market swoons to add to some of their best ideas at deeply discounted, fear-driven prices.”
