re: No love for bonds?

Wonder if I should get out of VWINX.

I've been trying to decide on a good alternative to that fund. I'm pretty heavy in there now.

Who cares. What does PIMCO know about bonds anyway. All they have is Bill Gross and he is no Jim Cramer.

Totally depends on the kind of bond. Long-term bonds are paying relatively well compared with other kinds of bonds, but they are perceived as being quite risky since rates can only go so low.

VWINX (Wellesley) is 60% bonds/40% stocks and is up 1.6% so far this year.

Maybe I should be looking at balanced funds.

We own a lot of balanced funds. If you are going to go that route I suggest you look at GLRIX as a wingman to VWINX. HBLIX is also has a decent one.

It's been pretty good to me since I got into it 15 months ago.

I'm not sure if I have a reason to be worried or not.

I am admittedly not bright on bonds. I have a just a little bit of BND and that is it.

I need to read something that breaks them down in simple terms and then I can handle the complicated issues after that since finance is something I enjoy reading about. Just need to get the feet wet.

We sold all BND, IEI, etc.....we still own VWINX and will probably continue to own it.
