Investor's Seeking Safety At Almost Any Cost

I've been looking at various government and corporate bonds for the fund, and it is just crazy what is happening.  Investors and institutions are just snapping up anything, even with little or no yield, and locking their money up for anywhere from 6 months to years! 

 

This is the complete opposite of what was happening in 2008 and 2009.  You could load up on quality short-term or long-term bonds at huge discounts.  The herd is going the wrong way and it is going to cost them dearly!  We may not be far from Buffett's "harem" quote when equities were no longer liked by anyone for years to come.  They may continue to tread sideways as their earnings continue to build for the next few years.  Cheers!

One, especially when young and getting new capital in on a regular basis, can only hope!  8)
