I'll be looking where ever I find the most attractive opportunites. I search by YTM range and maturity date range. You probably won't be suprised to hear that my muni bonds are almost all revenue bonds.

To borrow a phrase from Charlie, the really safe stuff is (almost) always richly priced.

IMHO, revenue bonds are where value can be found in munis. Revenue bonds are almost universally assumed to be riskier that GO bonds (and probably they are) and therefore they seem to typically offer much more attractive yields. IMHO, if your willing to do the research into the security of the revenue source for the bonds, some good opportunities can be found.

I have no particular insight into where the best opportunities will or will not materialize. As I alluded to earlier, I never search specifically for GO or revenue bonds, but sometimes GO bonds do show up in my screens.
