    They have Bond Duration at 7 years, so still likely another 8% to 14% drop in the Bond portion

    For Equity, they went GROWTH at the wrong time.

    This ain't the safe Fund it was for the past 100 year.

    This is now a Casino fund with their new objective

    unfortunately i think there is more downside to come in the very short term. some are talking about another 20 percent down going forward. I am going to wait and see.
  • d
    just sold after 24 years. thinking the bear market rally lost its momentum. will jump back in something when the it turns again, likely something that outpaces the indexes.

    Reading the chart, the 52 year lowest is 68.37 which is its support resistance. It did its unfortunate Death Cross (50MA Crosses 200MA in downward trends) looks like in February which is a bearish pattern. Probably because of dividend payout. Just recently, the 5MA, just crossed the 50MA in an upwards trend on the weekly which caused the 10 and 20 MA to change in the upwards trends. This seems like an early bullish pattern to me. I believe now is the time to buy if you’re interested. If you invest, I suggest investing now, dump at the end of the year when dividends are paid and it trades at its highest, and put it in a stable income fund. Rinse and repeat if your plan allows it. You don’t want to use your gains to pay for someone else’s dividends. <<< not financial advise. Trade at your own risk>>>. Good luck all. Happy Trading

    Great! I invested $10,000 in 1977! With Dividends and capital gains todays worth 899,000!!

    I bought 200 shares at 52 and change, the capital gains distribustion plus all div re invested for another 16 shares. and now I will buy 200 more when it finds a bottom. Always remember this fund has weathered every single storm the market has thrown at it, all the way back to 1929, and she always came back with a vengence. Sleep well!

    Wellington management is one of the top financial companies in the world. In time I believe they may even start rotating their portfolio. out with the old and in with the to speak. The investing landscape is changing so rapidly, right before our eyes, THANKS TO TECHNOLOGY! Things will accelerate going forward, at a pace which we never dreamed possible, all thanks to 5G, AI. automation, if companies don't quickly adapt to current and updated technology platforms, they will eventually fail to those who embraced innovation.

    This fund helps me sleep well at night. Even with falling interest rates; the divies will be reinvested into higher yield bonds...

    Need to see some more recent comments here. I have Wellington and Wellesley, and added FNCMX (NASDAQ Index fund) to add some growth and tech.
  • E

    If i invested into this fund now and held for 30 years? would this be a good buy?
  • T
    yikes- down 6% today must be dividend day
  • m
    I have vested for the past 10 years and in the red. I have not made money. I thought this was safer than other funds, but it's down to price of how many years ago?
  • r
    I see the fund was down 14.15%. Financial stocks Bank of America Corp., Prudential Financial Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., PNC Financial Services Group Inc., and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. were really hard hit. On the other hand, it did return about 8.46% on payout.
  • M
    They switched out of value to tech at the worst possible time after new managers came in.

    All markets were up today (Monday, 1/3). Why did this and other mutual funds lose share value?
