"In any event, why limit yourself to Treasuries? If you're willing to expose yourself to what I believe is miniscule incremental credit risk, you could bump your returns a bit by getting into hi-grade corporates (AAA and AA ratings)."Although I own no individual bonds, to me the main attraction with Treasuries is that I can buy them for no commission. Perhaps Treasuries w/no commission = corporate bonds with commission. Also Treasuries have a small advantage on taxation, since they are exempt from state and local taxes. So perhaps these two things make them equal if holding in a taxable account.ricerFool
