Bond Ideas for 2018

In the last 1 month, LippoMalls shares and bonds dropped 5% but as fast as they dropped, they have all bounced back up!

Maybank Kim Eng has compiled a list of bonds, please find them in this link here: https://app.box.com/s/a4wal0dj1tzysaimwiw12pshgw964gro

  • The column E “Yield” applies to YTM (yield to maturity). It is accurate for straight bonds, but may not be accurate for perpetuals.
  • Price are based on prices on 10th Jan 2017.
  • Prices already include commission of 0.25% embedded.

This is a long long list. To spare you the effort, I have here a selection of bonds that caught my eye. If any of these bond prices weaken, I may look to enter.
