Nothing anyone here wouldn't know but for someone i-rate conscious who doesn't qant 100% in equities, a laddr is a good route.
20% in 2 yr, 20% in 2yr and so on til 6.

As those bonds come due, see where things sit, if rates are up, equities may be cheaper, if 10 yr fixed income still isn't attractive, do a fresh 7 yr from taht point.
It means trying to NOT be a hero, reinvests over a timeline, because nobody KNOWS.
