High yield investments offer high returns, but greater risks. Knowing how the high yield investment generates its returns and what factors can cause those returns to go down or up are the details you need to understand to gain the rewards.
When you evaluate investments that appear to pay more, question everything and pay attention to the details. You should have a full understanding of the factors that influence the return including financial operating conditions, industry competitors and overall economic conditions.
Whilst high yield investments may generate a significant return on investment, you must be prepared to see your original sum invested (the principal) fluctuate, sometimes drastically.
High yield bonds
High yield bonds are issued by companies whose financial strength is likely to change, fail or collapse. Often referred to as "junk bonds", they must pay a higher yield than other safer alternatives in order to attract investors. You can buy individual high yield bonds or a high yield bond mutual fund for diversified options.
Yukon is in the north-western corner of Canada between Alaska and the Northwest Territories. The Yukon hosts significant deposits of gold, copper, lead, asbestos, cadmium, zinc, silver, tungsten, coal, nickel, barite, iron ore, molybdenum, platinum group elements and gemstones are to be found in the area, giving a varied and sometimes untapped mineral richness.
High-grade silver-lead veins discovered in the Keno Hill area in 1906 led to the intermittent production silver, lead, zinc and cadmium from underground mines and several open pits between 1921 and 1988.
Placer mining has played a vital role in the Yukon economy for over 100 years. Since 1886, in excess of 20 million crude ounces (600 million grams) of placer gold have been produced in the territory.
Exploration of the Yukon has uncovered over 80 mineral deposits with significant established reserves. 2,700 mineral occurrences have been found on only 3.6 percent of Yukon land that has mining claims. The area is ripe for further mineral exploration.
