<i< For a municipal bond fund to get 6.8% in this day and age, I would think they must be dealing in a. leverage and/or b. low quality municipal bonds. In either case, the fund seems harzardous to me (I've never heard of it before so I have no first hand knowledge of it.)........Hope this helps brucedoe,Thanks for your comments, as they are very helpful. I will have to tread very carefully with respect to such funds, and since I am becoming more and more risk adverse, probably not buy into this one, if any at all.I got this fund recommended by a Motley Fool newsletter called Income Investing written by Mathew Emmert. Since my trust in newsletters has approached the zero mark, and I was hoping that this one may be different, but alas, I am increasingly not very trustful of his recommendations either. Most of his picks are low dividend paying stocks (range of 4% dividends) and thus might be relatively safer than some of his high yielding recommendations such some REITs presently yielding around 10%.If I learn anything else of value regarding VKI, I will post it.Thanks,Henry
