PTTRX has a minimum initial investment of $1,000,000. Bond has a minimum investment of the price of one share. If you are thinking of a Pimco bond fund, take a look at PONDX or PBDDX. Otherwise, BOND looks like a winner, big time. Just my suggestion...
Still don't see the reason for the difference in yield. BOND is supposed to be the ETF alternative.
You can buy PTTDX which is the same fund as PTTRX except for the higher fee structure...roughly twice, bringing down the yield by about the same amount as the increased fee. I will look at the other two funds you mentioned. I like Bill Gross, and his track history is
pretty good. Big question, whats gonna happen with bonds this year?
