"My 2 cents would be to take the money and run...If it is an intermediate or long term bond fund its price will drop"

It is indeed an intermediate fund:

OIMCX
ONE GROUP INTERMED BOND FUND CL C

OK, this will show just how Foolish I am, but if interest rates go up, then won't that eventually reflect in higher interest paid on bonds ? Which will increase the yield ? And that's a good thing, I think (?).

Is it true that IN GENERAL when stocks are doing well, and the stock buying public thinks they will continue to do well, money is moved out of bonds (and other instruments I am sure) and into stocks? Which would drive the price of bonds down ?

Thanks, Scott
