  1. In 2062, I will, if still alive, be over 100 years old! So I can’t count on cashing in at maturity.

    Given that maturity won’t bail me out if interest rates soar, is there an advantage to buying such a long dated bond? Deflation, I know, but no one is using the ‘D’ word lately.

  2. Tim.. Bargains or Ford and Prudential….The market is Crazy… …..PS.. maybe all good….Georges

    1. They will be bargains at 25 or below, but I doubt they trade that low right away–maybe later depending on interest rates.
