    Cut not so bad

    I had not looked to see that they had lowered duration that far. Big bet on rising rates in the future. I expected the cut due to GIM cuts and negative UNII in last report. They may have generated some capital gains if they sold bounds during recent rallies to lower duration. I use this as a major bond portion to balance equity exposure. Management team has been top notch. Bit ugly today though as expected.

    Hey 5.6% in this environment is still good and remember these guys usually kick in some capital gains at year end as well. I have been a long term holder and continue to find this an excellent alternative for diversification as US stocks are looking fully priced lately....i.e. Getting more risky....you are also still buying at a discount and fund has a times traded with a nice premium.
