Subject:  Bonds good place for temporary return? Date:  10/28/2008  11:02 AM

I have a cash balance with my online broker earning very little. I know nothing about bonds, but are they a better place to park cash on a temporary basis? I am thinking about BND and LQD. Are there any disadvantages? Clearly the value can go up or down, but over a few months I am reluctant to have cash earning a negative real return.
