In December or January, read an article that quoted ML as saying yields on the long bond would be up 100 basis points at year end. A week later, read an article in which a much smaller company said treasuries would be a good investment for 2014.

Watching tv this morning, I believe I saw the 30 year treasury yielding 3.2%. I'm not going to bother to do the math, but I think anyone that bought the 30 year on Jan 2 has done very well so far.
