When you bail you pay income taxes. So no hurry. Wait until you see a good option for the funds.

Are your E bonds continuing to pay interest? Most continue to earn interest after maturity for years, but eventually stop paying interest.

If they are paying interest at attractive rates, keep them. If not, watch the tax situation and time cashing them in to keep your rates low.

At the moment, dividend paying stocks are about the only decent fixed income investment, but we hope interest rates will rise over the next few years. So holding the E bonds until better rates are available could be a decent strategy.
