    when would u go in

    I have cash from riding the S&P for a while in my 401K, I want income soon (close to retire), I want to put some in this fund. When would u jump in, I thought if it goes down to 10.7 I would go in. My thinking is it will go down when rates rise, Am I off base here? I am a novice, I figure u people are best to ask....

    • I thought ikala.geo was crazy when he posted in January that he would buy in when this got to 10.7. Six months after his post he's looking pretty good. I would have never guessed this could drop that far this fast.

    • Don't wait for a specific NAV. Dollar cost average the sum that you want to invest in PTTRX over several months. Hope this helps.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • 10-year at about 2.2

    • Not now..bonds are headed towards the basement...time to jump out of bonds not get in. The market and interest rates are going to rise. It's the banks turn to start making a killing again. Same as it ever was..

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • PTTRX is one of the most stable bond funds, The most I have seen this fund move down is 10percent in 2000/2001 and 2008/2009... look at performance only 2 out of 26 years down. Excellent long term fixed income instrument. The curent down trend is only 7 cents in 50 days or so. 11 a share ,, but I have been adding since capital gains were paid. 50% 401k in this fund 50% cash. Iam 59years old and want to maintain my capital. I feel stocks are still to risky with the state of the ecomomy and I may miss some 10-15% rallies ... so what .. I sleep at night. If rates go up Iam staying in PTTRX.

    • This fund isn't typical in the sense that price movement doesn’t reflect the value of your investment. The chances of it dropping to 10.7 are extremely slim. Do a little homework on the fund and learn why it has price drops and why those can actually be good. This fund is a good place to have your money during the later years of life.

      I’m about eight years away from retiring and feel this fund is right for my needs.

      • I am thinking I was doing my homework by asking the question on this board. I am also thinking because a little more than a year ago it was 10.7 by pure market force at that time, when the rates rise for the segment of bonds in this fund the price will drop. Now would you care to actually give an answer to my question (its a number)? Your answer leads me to think this guy should jump in now or anytime, but how about this novel idea, I get in when the price goes down a bit, enjoy the higher return for less money?
