    Bought this fund on 5/29/12 at 10.72 which is where it just closed. Has provided total liquidity and between 2 and 3% yield for 7 years. My adviser basically told me that it is safe place to stash cash. Better than and CD or bank account.

    Bought this fund May of 2012 as a place to stash cash and paid 10.72. So for 8 years it has paid better than any savbings or checking account and as much as most CDs but has given me total liquidity. Also because I reinvested the dividends during times when the NAV was low I accumulated a lot of shares. Have had to sell some along the way but it is and has been one of the best and safest places to stash cash while maintaining a modest dividend and total liquidity.

    Wow. NAV of 11.02. Its been like 20 years since it was that high. Of course the yield has plummeted.

    so what is up with this fund. sold a house and put some cash here to play safe and liquid and down 500 bucks in 2 days?

    It has been 18 years since this fund traded with this high of a NAV. People are panicking and pouring money into safety. Not a great yield but beats the hell out of cash in a bank or a CD.

    Boy check out the 3 month chart on this bad boy in times of turmoil. Big move tonight to 10.90. Looks like the wind is finally at our backs.

    Much as I would prefer that the dividend were increased rather than the NAV I'll gratefully accept the rise to what is a multi year high NAV.
  • p

    NAV at multi year low. OTOH yield is now over 2%. Since I reinvest all dividends I'm happy to be buying more and more shares at lower and lower prices. Hopefully I won't need to sell any shares for quite some time at these low prices.

    When are we hitting bottom? Don't know. But as long as you don't need to sell, just hang in there. Interest rates will go up and that will eventually impact yield. It is a short term fund that is funding quality corporations. Just have some dwell time as interest rates catch up. You can cash out. But then where you go?

    I did same. Sold home stashed cash down several thousand. I would have put in inflation protected fund if I was smart. No where to hide? Thoughts?

    When feds took rates to zero I expected an immediate gain in this fund but instead it dropped considerably. I can only guess many sold this fund to rebalance into stocks. Not as stable and safe as I expected.

    The NAV was last this high some 19 years ago. Not sure I fully grasp the significance of that but it surely has me very tempted to cash it in and get something with a higher yield. Anyone have other thoughts?

    pinot noirist - Looks like you've been on this board for a while and make intelligent remarks... do you have any insight as to why the funds returns relative to the category have suffered in the past year? In prior years, it's been comparable (usually better) that the category return, but the YTD returns this year are lagging. Any idea what's up? Thanks in advance...

    I believe that the highest this fund has been over the past five years is 10.80, so we are just a few pennies shy of a 5 year high mark. Since I reinvest I guess I would prefer it go down a bit so I wuld buy more shares not less every month. OTOH since I use this in essence as a safe place to stash "cash" with quick access and higher yield and greater liquidity than a CD I suppose I should be happy that its value is so high. Can't have it both ways I guess.

    Based on current NAV and last dividend this fund is now paying under 2% yield. Granted it is hard to find many places with a higher yield that area s safe but seriously that's the worst it's been for a long time.

    $10.83 at today's close is a 5 year high. This is one of the best places to stash cash for short term or long term. Beats the hell out of any CD because the yield is better than most and total liquidity.

    Vanguard eliminated the 30% limitation on investments in non-investment grade bonds today. Any indication of how far they will go to increase returns?

    Looks like the Feb dividend was 2.5 cents about par for the course.
