So much for those "1994 won't happen again" stories. On a percentage basis, the rise in the 10-year Treasury yield (to over 2.6% from 1.6% less than 2 months ago) is the worst since 1962, according to BTIG. "The Fed had no idea how leveraged or bubbled-up the world's positions were," says Andrew Brenner of National Alliance Securities. "Nothing is sacred today." Income funds: Alpine Total Dynamic (AOD -3.6%), Pimco High Income (PHK -1.6%), Eaton Vance Tax-Managed (EXG -3.6%). Equity REITs: Omega (OHI -2.3%), HCP Inc. (HCP -2.3%), Medical Properties (MPW -4.2%), Realty Income (O -0.4%).
