If you're thinking of buying shares in a single state muni bond fund...I read an article in the WSJ a while ago, I think it was on December 5...which said some single state muni bond funds were holding a lot of debt from Puerto Rico. Some of the numbers were very high...I believe in excess of 25% of the funds' portfolios. The article listed specific funds. You might find the article with a google search. Anyways, don't let the name of a muni bond fund fool you. You might find yourself owning a lot of Puerto Rico debt instead of debt from your city/county/state. Bill Gross was on TV today, gave his two cents that he didn't think Puerto Rico would be allowed to default. And he mentioned buying 5-year Mexico debt which was paying about 5%.
