Bonds: Top corporate funds of the past 3 years
Despite the sentiment that fixed-income yields are low in the U.S., investor money is pouring in. Those yields are still better than other fixed-income markets across the world, which, in some cases have gone negative. So, unsurprisingly, many foreign investors are looking for yield outside their home markets and U.S. fixed income, across the board, is reaping the benefits.
We've ranked the following bond funds by three-year return figures. However, given the recent surge of foreign money, the one-year numbers are generally even higher. As usual, we also show the expense ratios for each fund. Since ETFs are part of our mix, expenses range from a few basis points (actually, one of them is zero) to about 1%.
