Yesterday we talked in our screencast about the debate surrounding the existence (or not) of the equity risk premium. In today’s screencast we came across a number of posts talking about the potential for a “bond bubble.” This comes out especially when one compares where blue chip companies like Johnson & Johnson can issue bonds vs. the current dividend yield on the stock.
