  • TOP 10 TOTAL BOND, MUNI & PREFERRED STOCK ETFs 0 comments

    This posting completes a comprehensive review in the fixed-income ETF segment. While this review seems a grab-bag collection of issues, we like keeping the list of choices at 10. This seems more manageable for most investors. We're not necessarily recommending one issue over another and where other interesting choices exist we mention them within each featured issue's review. Let's remember, in the fixed-income sector there are many choices, but with many being repetitive it's not necessary to cover them all. Each sponsor might disagree naturally.

    Our goal is to cover the most important ETFs within each category using high assets under management, liquidity and/or strategies that make a difference in the critical tests. Newer issues tied to new indices with long (more than five years) of historical data may be worth investigating, featuring and using as a replacement if necessary.

    We'll begin our review with Total Bond ETFs which have the characteristic of incorporating many different maturities and issues into one all-inclusive issue.
