JNK Vs. SJNK: Is Shorter Better?

I often like to take a fund or ETF and set it next to a counterpart to see which one wins when examining their risk/reward profiles. Sometimes, two funds deliver similar returns or offer similar dividend yields or operate within the same sector or strategy but deliver their results in very different ways.


Today, I wanted to take a look at the SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:JNK) and its shorter-term counterpart, the SPDR Barclays Short Term High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:SJNK). Specifically, I wanted to pay special attention to the yields offered by the funds and the risks taken in order to achieve them. The High Yield Bond ETF should be paying the higher yield but is the additional risk taken to get that yield really worth it?
