New Vanguard Core Bond Fund

As usual, the Oblivious Investor provides great insights:

Evaluating Vanguard’s New Core Bond Fund

His bottom line:

In other words, if I were to buy the fund, it would be as a low-cost way to bet on the managers’ ability to exclude specific bonds that will underperform (e.g., due to credit troubles) rather than as a way to bet on somebody’s ability to predict interest rates. But personally, I’d prefer to just stick with my index funds rather than make any such bets.

I'm afraid they are right. Personally I own Pimco Income Fund PIMIX, Doubleline Total Return DBLTX and Vanguard Total Bond VBMPX. In the end I bet it all averages out.
Took SS at 62 and hope I live long enough to regret the decision.
