I haven't read this weeks barron's yet, but..

On the cover, reference to an article on target-date funds. It suggests the article has a positive slant on these.

Last week or so, a market guest on PBS suggested that target-date funds may not be a good idea if you plan on using those $$ soon. You might be going into fixed income instruments at just the wrong time.

I don't know anything about them. I don't know how rigid or flexible the managers of such funds are allowed to me.

Secondly, a full page article on page L-15 called Bond ETFs You Don't Need. I haven't read it yet.

And you've got quarterly report of all mutual funds and ETFs in this issue.
