regarding your treasury bond due 2019,
for what its worth....
I've got 10 to 15% of my portfolio in various US Treasury strips, maturing in 5 to 20 years or so. All had yields to maturity of 5 to 6.5% when I bought them.
Present yield is obviously a lot less. But I'm not selling them now, I'm happy with the YTM, and don't have to worry about what to do with the money if I did.
