I am still having trouble weaning myself away from stocks into bonds. I also wonder if this is a good timing to go into bonds at a time when there is rumbling for rise in interest rates for 2 years now. Thanks to you, I now have a decent position in NKX (2.5% though) and I wonder how much to bump it up. Its Puerto Rico exposure has gone down and CA economy has clearly firmed up. It should be less risky. Any thoughts?

Secondly, this is my only bond holding other than a pittance in HYLD. I do have solid MLP presence (taking the tax bull by its horns and I am still alive!) along with MFO for income. Do you think I need to diversify away from NKX or I can just up the position 4x?
