Axios: Why Trump gives Putin a pass on Mueller investigation revelations
Axios
President Trump no longer doubts the basic intelligence assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election — he just seems incapable of taking it seriously, and tells staff that is simply what nations do, several sources close to Trump tell me. Between the lines: There is no evidence that could ever change Trump’s mind, the sources said. Why it matters: To the extent that Trump does confront Putin over meddling at tomorrow's summit in Finland with Vladimir Putin — and the president has Read the full story

Renewable energy has quietly become one of the best places for investors to find high-quality dividends that sport high yields as well. Yieldcos like Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP), TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP), Pattern Energy (NASDAQ:PEGI), and NRG Yield (NYSE:NYLD) (NYSE:NYLD-A) have yields of over 5% along with long-term contracted cash flows to sell energy to utilities. | Yieldcos don't make a lot of news in the market or generate much buzz in the media, but they're about as stable as dividend stocks get, with consistent cash flows that are contracted for years, even decades, into the future. And with renewable energy only growing in popularity, the opportunity to buy more assets to grow their dividends seems almost limitless.

Are Individual Bonds Safer than Bond Funds? | Pragmatic Capitalism 082017
Cullen Roche: This is important. A lot of people argue that individual bonds are safer because they can be held to maturity, but a bond fund is nothing more than the summation of all the individual bonds it holds. So, you’re getting greater diversification by reducing the single entity risk in the portfolio, but because you’re diversifying the portfolio you’re blending the maturity date so that the portfolio is constantly being rolled over across time. While it does not have a specific maturity date it does indeed have bonds maturing inside of the portfolio which means that, if you hold the bond fund for the entirety of the average maturity, your portfolio will mature on average and the probability of you seeing negative returns over that period is very low. And because you’re more diversified there is a high probability that you’re taking less risk than the individual bonds.¹
I would argue that the bigger risk with owning bond funds is that you can see their price daily. While this is also true for individual bonds it’s far less transparent and generally harder to find. In the world of indexing and ETFs we can log-in and check the price of any fund we like. This creates increased behavioral risk in bond funds because the volatility is more noticeable even though the same exact thing is happening in the individual bonds. This is just short-termism at work in the bond market. If you’re going to buy%

How to Overcome Your Fear of Bonds - Pragmatic Capitalism 020818
Cullen Roche: Get over your fear of “bond funds”. Many investors think there’s increased risk in a bond fund because it can’t be held to maturity like an individual bond, but a bond fund is nothing more than a portfolio of individual bonds. The key difference is that they have a “constant maturity” in most cases. This is a lot like a bond ladder in that the portfolio does have an average maturity, but it gets reinvested at higher or lower yields as parts of the portfolio mature over time. So, if you buy a bond fund with an average effective maturity of 10 years that’s a heckuva lot like owning an individual bond with a 10 year maturity. The key difference is that the bond fund diversifies out most of that single entity risk. | A related risk here is individual fund risk. For instance, you might own multiple bond funds across different sectors of the global economy. These funds should be allocated so that they’re consistent with whatever your overall fixed income goal is, but it’s important not to think of these funds as individual securities and instead think of the entire bond piece as one bond fund. This way you reduce the risk that you’ll focus excessively on the worst performing parts of the bond portfolio when you should be thinking of how the entire parts are working together. And remember, the goal of diversifying is to reduce cross-asset correlations so if you’re diversified and something in your portfolio isn’t working then it means you’re doing it right!

You shouldn’t fear bonds just because yields are rising - MarketWatch
Cullen Roche: But the real kicker here is understanding that the total return on bonds has been pretty muted despite rising rates. That’s because the rate of change hasn’t been dramatic by any means. And for bond returns, the rate of change in yields and the starting point is everything. In a sharply rising rate environment, the interest paid doesn’t always offset the loss in principal. For instance, if you bought an aggregate bond index one year ago, you were buying an instrument that paid about 2.25% with an average effective maturity of 5.9 years. But rising rates have resulted in a 3.11% principal decline leading to a total return of -0.86%. And of course, if you actually hold onto this bond for 5-plus years, there’s very little chance you’ll see principal losses because the underlying bonds will mature at par, you’ll recoup your short-term principal declines plus you’ll earn the interest all along the way.

BDC Buzz
Business development companies (BDCs) were created by Congress in 1980 to give investors an opportunity to invest in private U.S. small and middle market businesses typically overlooked by banks. Most BDCs are publicly traded, providing investors with higher than average dividends (between 7% and 14% annually) by avoiding taxation at the corporate level. This allows them to pass along ordinary income and capital gains directly to the shareholder.
BDCs are required to distribute at least 90% of taxable income and gains to shareholders to avoid corporate income tax as well as maintain at least 200% asset coverage ratios (much lower than typical banks).
The purpose of this site is to provide investors with access to research on BDCs as well as comparative analyses so that investors can choose a BDC that fits their investment needs.​

John McCain is the single greatest political leader of our time - The Washington Post
John McCain is the single greatest political leader of our time
At long last, have they left no sense of decency?
White House official Kelly Sadler, during a meeting Thursday, had this to say about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for opposing President Trump’s CIA nominee over her failure to condemn torture: “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”
Also Thursday, on Fox Business Network, retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney had this to say about the torture of McCain, who was shot down over Hanoi with grievous wounds, but refused release to deny his captors a propaganda victory: Torture “worked on John. That’s why they call him ‘Songbird John.’ ”
And three days earlier, Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), a Trump cheerleader, declared the terminally ill McCain was “ridiculous” to prefer that Trump, who has belittled McCain and his heroism, not attend his funeral.
Hatch, Sadler, and the host of the Fox Business show have all apologized, as they should. But how did we let partisanship take us to this ugly place?
McCain is still with us, and this is no obituary. But as Trump loyalists besmirch this good man, I thought I would put in writing what I have often thought over the years: John McCain is the single greatest political leader of our time. He is, in a way, not of our time, for his creed — country before self — is unfamiliar to many who serve in office and utterly foreign to the man in charge.
Only once during the nearly quarter of a century I’ve been covering politics did I think I could work for a politician, and that politician was McCain. I first got to know him in early 1999, when there were just a few of us driving around New Hampshire with him in an SUV, before the “Straight Talk Express” rolled. Had he beaten George W. Bush (he surely would have defeated Al Gore), and had he been president on Sept. 11, 2001, I know he would have done great things with the national unity Bush ultimately squandered.
I’ve had a closer relationship with McCain than with other politicians. I remember flying with him and Cindy McCain to Phoenix during the 2000 campaign, talking about sports, music, a war buddy — and the issue that defined him: removing the corrupting influence of money from politics. That’s why so many liked him even if they disagreed on the issues: With McCain, everything was going to be on the level.
I believed, perhaps naively, that in the free marketplace of ideas, uncorrupted by special interests, we would usually arrive at a sensible consensus. A generation after Sen. Eugene McCarthy (D-Minn.) inspired his “Clean for Gene ” followers, McCain inspired me.
On my Bush-Gore election ballot, I wrote in McCain. When I saw him later in the Senate, I’d greet him as “Mr. President.” He’d reply by calling me “Mr. Pulitzer.” I took pride in 2009, when McCain read aloud a column of mine on the Senate floor and called me “one of my favorite columnists.” He regretted that a few months later, when I took him to task for momentarily shedding his “maverick” ways, and he tried to disavow me.
There have been many such moments of disagreement and disappointment: when he put Sarah Palin on his ticket in 2008; when he took a hard-right turn in 2010 to fight off a primary challenge; and when another tough primary in 2016 led him to go easy on Trump.
But the Mac always came back, and never more forcefully than over the past 16 months. In his forthcoming book, he labels “unpatriotic” the “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.” His single bravest moment may have been earlier, though, when he angered supporters in 2008 by taking the microphone from a woman at a campaign rally who had called Barack Obama an “Arab.” Said he: “No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with.”
McCain has, in achievement, equaled or surpassed his mentors and models, Barry Goldwater and Mo Udall. Formally launching his 2008 campaign in Prescott, Ariz., where both men had roots, McCain invoked the friendship of these ideological opposites, who “taught me to believe that we are Americans first and partisans second.”
I was with McCain when he returned to Prescott for his last stop of that campaign. Again invoking Udall and Goldwater, McCain retold Udall’s joke about Arizona being “the only state where mothers don’t tell their children they can grow up to be president.”
In Phoenix for a wedding last weekend, I made a pilgrimage north, past the turnoff for Prescott and on to McCain’s beloved Sedona. Driving and walking among its red-rock hills, I reflected for hours on the man who had so often spoken of that beautiful place, and who so often had been my antidote to cynicism. As I write this, there are tears on my cheeks.
Godspeed, John McCain. You were not to be president, but you are my hero.
