Started the year at 11.22....currently at 11.22....paid a couple dividends....could head a bit higher, especially if the market realizes there's really no positive news out there.... It's not equities but it's solid.
This bond is on a slow boat heading downwards so people don't flee from it all at once. The fall from the 11.60's down to this current 11.17 and falling..shows $ trouble on the horizon in all bond funds. Smaller dividends and hope is all it's gonna offer as Interest rates rise to cover the banks bottom lines. You'll see.! The rates are gonna steadily rise and bonds are already heading the opposite direction like a see saw..! Stagnant is the word of the day now in bonds, and stagnant means loss.
