You say "need" -- if that is correct you have no business considering VWINX - the underlying investments could drop well beyond the return. A 1% CD return are way better than the mattress technique - nobody lost money in a CD or savings account with $10,000 in since the 30s. If your house burns down or a burglar visits you will loose.
