While savvy investors with vast resources certainly have better chances of catching winners, bond investing can be a daunting task for everyday investors. Luckily, it's easy to follow the market's collective wisdom with a low-cost portfolio like Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond ETF VCIT . This fund earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver because it effectively tracks a well-constructed benchmark and enjoys a sizable cost advantage over most of its peers.
The Dow Jones Equal Weight U.S. Issued Corporate Bond Index has been inching up higher year-to-date--about 27 percent--and interest in these four corporate bond ETFs has increased in the past five days, possibly signaling more capital inflows from fixed income investors seeking higher yields. Vanguard Long-Term Corporate Bd ETF (VCLT) tracks the performance of a market-weighted corporate bond index with a long-term dollar-weighted average maturity and is up 0.46% today. SPDR Portfolio Short Term Corp Bd ETF (SPSB) corresponds to the price and yield performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. 1-3 Year Corporate Bond Index.

The fund-of-funds holds three other Vanguard ETFs that track three different maturity ranges, including the Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH) , Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCIT) and Vanguard Long-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCLT) .
