The yield from treasuries is low and may yield
insufficient income. It is true corporate bond funds
asset value, will vary somewhat with the market but
no where as much as common or preferred stock. The
nice part is the fixed income comes in twice a year!
Admittedly, a poorly managed fund could fail to be
savy enough to switch bond holdings when market
conditions dictate - thats what management fees are
suppose to reflect. I was careful to emphasize a
WELL managed fund in my posting. Bear in mind, when the
bonds go to maturity you do get back 100cents for each
dollar of face value.
