But if you don't use bond funds for the fixed income portion of a portfolio, what do you do?

Why have a fixed income portion of your portfolio at all? Is there a law somewhere?

OP seems to have written his own Law. in which case, there aren't alot of good choices right now.

Bond funds are seldom a good buy, compared to stocks or cash.

depending on rates, i like them better than cash (but not as well as actual bonds or CDs)

... when rates puked, *i* tried to move from a CD ladder to dividend-stock ladder
