Thinking About Some MUB

|Includes: iShares National AMT-Free Muni Bond ETF (MUB)

I was looking for a way to get short municipal bonds a few months back but was quickly distracted by something and forgot about it.  I was reading an article penned by one Meredith Whitney this morning who was repeating her pessimistic outlook on US states and municipalities which reminded me that I need to find that darn muni-bond ETF so I did some looking and came across MUB which is the iShares S&P National AMT-Free Muni Bond Fund.  While I still have to do more research on what exactly this ETF holds, it looks like a decent exchange-traded proxy for municipal bonds so I may spend some time on this one.  According to Thomson the yield is 3.559% and it may be hard to borrow.
