The yield from treasuries is low and may yield insufficient income. It is true corporate bond fundsasset value, will vary somewhat with the market butno where as much as common or preferred stock. Thenice 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 aresuppose to reflect. I was careful to emphasize a WELL managed fund in my posting. Bear in mind, when thebonds go to maturity you do get back 100cents for each dollar of face value.
