Screen Fixed-Income Investments

Find the perfect individual bond for the income-producing portion of your portfolio with online bond screening tools.

Investing in individual bonds [Hack #80] provides you with another safety net to preserve your principal while providing income. When you build your own bond portfolio you can customize it so the bonds mature exactly when you need the money. For example, if you want to create a bond portfolio that matures when your kids’ college bills are due or when you retire—and you don’t want the fees and additional risks of bond funds [Hack #64] —do some research and buy individual bonds. Online screening tools for individual bonds can help, but free tools that locate individual bonds are rare. The Yahoo! Finance’s bond screener (http://bonds.yahoo.com/search.html) and BondsOnline’s Fixed-Income Research Center (http://www.bondsonline.com/asp/research/intro.asp) enable you to search for bonds that meet your needs without paying for the privilege.
