Thoughts on DEEAX as bond portion of retirement account

90 percent equities, 10 percent bond. The 10 percent is in DEEAX. Bonds are getting slammed now and looks like te hurting will continue for the foreseeable future. FYI I'm 31.

Not sure why one would want to hold an extended duration bond fund in a rising interest rate environment.

This. If you want to go bond look international or go short/intermediate term high yield.

And I would add bank loans/floating rate fund. Great yield and should see some appreciation.

in addition to floating rate i'd look at some of the more unconstrained bonds funds that basically have no duration and go long or short interest rate. JP Strategic Income, John Hancock Strategic Income, and Goldman Sachs strategic income are all ones to look at.

My choices with my company's program are DEEAX, IPTSX, and AIAVX. What would you chose? As I'm only 31, would you just put this 10 percent into equities for a bit as I can bear the risk at this age?

The ING Pimco fund you quoted is minus 3.28 YTD.

At age 31, 51 or 71, in this market, get out of bonds. At your age, go to equities. At my age, I'm in cash and high paying dividend stocks.

Well, my personal investments are in equity mutual funds, with a good portion in Exxon and McDonald's; however, I don't have too much choice in the retirement funds, as you can see by my extensive choice in bond above. Guess ill spread it across a few other equity funds.

Of those three I would pick the Pimco, but I am not I would be in cash or maybe a balanced fund with that portion of my portfolio.
