I have been considering a low-cost investment grade bond fund, such as Vanguard Long-Term Investment-Grade Fund Investor Shares (VWESX), which currently yields 6.06%.

Investment grade bonds pretty much follow Treasuries. On the low investment grade end, there has been an increase in risk premium, but you are still looking at investing in a long term fund at a time interest rates have come down.

The place to look, if you want a fund, is Vanguard's junk fund. But that means guessing, at least over the long term, junk will recover to at least current trading valuations, (I am tempted in my 403(b).)
