Later on as the economy picks up and the Fed starts raising interest rates, THEN I'll buy bonds again.

This seems like an interesting approach, although most people who thought rate rises were inevitable thought they would have already occured by now.

They were wrong about that, and they could be wrong about the "later this year" hypothesis as well. The fact is, this economy is crawling along weaker (on the corporate front) and slower than just about anyone expected, given the amount of stimulus injected over the past 18 months.

Could the masses be wrong, and rates simply stay low for a prolonged period? The people in japan didn't think it could happen.
