Beware! Why most bond mutual funds aren’t worth the trouble or cost.


Bond mutual funds can be desirable if you want the yield you can get from longer-term bonds but want the freedom to access some or all of your investment in the nearer term. But beware--most bond funds are not worth your trouble, especially those that come with an up-front or back-end sales load or funds with high-expense share classes such as class C shares.
