I looked at the funds in your comparative chart. The yields are KMM 9%, FAIRX 0.79%, APPLX 0.15%, YAFFX 0.30% (all per Yahoo). KMM is a world bond fund. It is subject to interest rate risk; however the average duration is 3.58 pretty low: fund will decline about 3.58% for every 1% rise in interest rates. So this fund looks like a nice candidate for fixed income - unless of course foreign bonds get crushed by the current crisis.
