    This ETF is designed for preservation of capital. .Don't even think you are going to get any share increase. It comes in handy when there is a market correction or meldown.

    Bought into this fund 3 months ago. I think it’s been up 3 days in 3 months! This thing is a dog! 👎

    why has this gone down so much so fast in the past couple weeks?

    I bought in June 2017 VCSH for $61653 and sold recently for all my holdings for $60702. I believe I got about $600 dividend after tax, but it is definitely not a safe haven to park your money when the Feds are rising interest rates. The loss becomes even bigger when you include broker fees.

    I sold all my stocks at the price I bought them, so I only gained the dividend. I don't understand why the stock has fallen nearly $1.5 when the stock market is crashing and the FED interest rate is decreasing. Could it be that investors are selling to get free cash to buy new bargain stocks?

    Since Fed is likely to raise rates 4 times in next 365 days.
    You have to ask yourself-should I be in this fund.
    Will this fund outperform guaranteed 1 year CDs of 2.7%
    in next year. Doubtful

    probably the best bond fund to be in at this time.

    Very good ETF for troubled times.

    Looks like it’ll move back above $83! Can it break its highs of a few months ago? Hoping so!

    I am pretty disappointed with the performance of VCSH. Although it dropped nearly 1% after the FEDs increased the rate with 0.25%. This seems to be in line with bonds. VCSH's average maturity is 2.5 years so it should fall 0.75, but I thought it was safe for big moves due to its short maturity. I am still with a tiny profit as it provides 2.4% dividend. What I fear is that this year the FEDs are expected to increase the rate with 3x0.25.

    This fund is in free fall- in 10 days it has lost 6% (down 9% at the open on3-16) where BND is only down 2%--why? because of margin calls on the hedge funds?

    rates dropped--this should have gone up a little--right?

    the best alternative right now I think is Vanguard Ultra short-term Bond Fund vusfx and the Admiral version vusfx paying about 2.8% with only tiny tiny movement in price. At the end of each month it drops .04 as the dividend gets paid out Vanguard money market Prime pays 2.4% and stays at $1

    I find it a decent place to park cash while waiting for some of this volatility to calm down. Still think we are due for a few more big drops this year. Dividends paid around the 5th or 6th. Yes, VCSH will still bounce around a little but it holds a broad range of bonds and is easy to get in and out of.

    Any idea why the stock lossed 0.83%?

    I am puzzled too. I do not see dividends (I checked on Morningstar). Usually dividends are on the first day of the month. Sometimes on the second or even third day. Never towards the end of the month.

    best alternative right now is Vanguard Ultra short-term Bond Fund VUBFX which is paying 2.7% and about one year duration. at the end of each month it drops .004 Orso so as the dividend gets paid

    I bought this dog for the dividend and for a small increase in share price, I hoped for 2 or 3 percent. I would be OK with a certain 5 or 6 percent combined at year's end. However the stock price has not gained and in fact has gone down. I'm out of this loser.
