Transaction detail

Today I am sharing with you about the transaction that I made on May 27. The details are as follows:

Bought bond

  • Company: Lumen Technologies
  • Bond: LUMN 7.995 06/01/36
  • Face coupon rate: 7.995%
  • Maturity date: June 1, 2036
  • Bought face value: US$2000
  • Bought bond price: US$83.81
  • Commission fee: US$2
  • Bond yield: 9.96%

Reasons of buying Lumen Technologies corporate bond

I haven’t increased holdings of U.S. bonds for a long time. One of the reasons is that because I know that the general direction of the United States is to raise interest rates, that is, the attractiveness of U.S. bonds will decrease, so fewer people invest in bonds, which leads to a fall in bond prices. But seeing that U.S. debt has fallen by a certain extent. In addition, the rating of this US bond is still BA2/BB from IB, which is very attractive, so I decided to use the passive income recently received by the portfolio to increase the holdings of this US bond in order to increase the income return of the portfolio.
