As you know if you’re a regular viewer on this channel,I’ve been making a lot of noise recently now that T-bills are offering yields around 5%. That’s a very big development, as investors who are concerned about today’s financial markets now have somewhere safe to park their capital, keep it relatively liquid, AND get paid a decent return on it. That hasn’t been the case for a long time. 1 year T-bill yields have been at record lows for much of the past decade, down near 0% for many years. The last time they were this high was 2006. And with the inflation rate, as measured by CPI, falling – it may not be very long before T-bills offer a positive real return when adjusted for inflation. Again, that hasn’t been the case for a very long time. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had investors tell me “I’m too spooked by the turbulence of today’s uncertain markets. If I could just find a safe place to get a 4 to 5% return on my money for the time being, I’d be thrilled.” Well, that’s now possible given where short term yields are.
