Bond yields and personal income both surge

Bond yields and personal income both surge

Bond yields took a big leap in recent weeks over inflation concerns, with the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasuries moving up from 1.09% at the end of January to 1.46% at the February close. Rising bond rates in the past have sometimes had an adverse effect on stocks. The more attractive bonds become, as their yields rise, the more likely it is that money will begin flowing out of stocks and into bonds.
