    No real surprise here, I guess. The stated rationale is the investment co. "going short term" in anticipation of increased longer term rates in the future (hopefully soon!). Thus avoiding the NAV decrease when global rates increase and therefore longer term bond prices plummet.


    My beef, if I have one, is that I am already in short term bonds to the extent I wanted to be. I did not need GIM to suddenly go that way too! Now, I have too much in short terms to suit me. Any suggestions?
