As for corporate bonds, you get no qualified rate either nor do you on CD dividneds. I don't know of any mutual funds that give qualified dividends, but there may be some.

Any mutual fund that invests in securities that pay dividends that would be qualified if held directly by an investor also pay qualified dividends. The year-end 1099 details what portion of the mutual fund dividends are qualified, ordinary, capital gain distributions, etc.
