Investors back away from junk, this week pulling the highest amount out of the 3rd largest high-yield ETF (PHB) since the fund's inception nearly 5 years ago. The 2 larger funds, (HYG, JNK) haven't been spared either. After a strong start to 2012, BAML's junk bond index has lost 1.7% since April's end.

    I don't see the problem. Others may be using these funds as a piggy bank to buy rising stocks. All my ETFs are still paying their usual dividend and I have been adding during the decline. As the price goes down the yield goes up.
