April Q&A: New Answers on Stocks, Gold, Uranium, Junk Bonds and More

Welcome to our latest round of Q&A! This time, my insightful readers didn’t just have questions – they had answers.

  • One reader offered an excellent recommendation for how to play the HY bond market – and I wholeheartedly agreed.

If you can’t trust your fellow thieves, there’s no justice in the world.

And for investors, of course, it’s become increasingly clear that you can’t trust the markets.
