I wonder why their yield is so crappy, .05% ?
1% or more is available from several banks. Not that 1% is great, but still....

I still don't get it...

With the bulk of the holdings in very short term gov't paper there isn't much available for the fund to invest. Add in a little bit of expense fees (.20%) and there's little if any thing left. I only use this account anymore for my brokerage sweep acct with an avg balance of a couple hundred bucks.
