I wouldn't be looking at any type of bond fund right now. We are at 45 year low interest rates. When they go up (maybe in a year, maybe in 3) those bond funds are going down.

Unlike a stock fund where the fund manager might find values and it might rise in a falling market, I think it's an almost certain bet that a bond fund WILL go down as rates rise.
