    Go to cash!

    by davidgardiner1978 Jun 26, 2015 8:11 PM

    Bond funds have never been an alternative to cash except for possibly ultra-short term funds. With money yields as low as they are a good quality, low duration, diversified bond fund is yielding at least 2%-3% even in today's market. and has a chance of capital appreciation. Their downside risk is relatively low in the near term. With cash all one gets is a miniscule amount of interest which isn't even enough to make up for inflation..

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Bond funds are no longer a good portfolio balance to cash! Unfortunately a bond bubble is here, and bonds more than not go down when stocks go down! Cash is the only answer in this bubble market.
