IMPORTANT NOTE: For all practical purposes this is an adjustable rate junk bond fund. We don't particularly like owning funds that appeal to investors fearful of interest rates climbing as they often are taking more credit risk than they should be comfortable with. Fund inflows should help this fund. If it's not available to you, don't use another junk bond fund as an alternative, consider an investment grade short term bond fund like BSV.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The longest duration and lowest credit risk fund you can buy because it is made up of zero-coupon government debt. This fund is here primarily because in a bad recession, one in which interest rates plummet and defaults rise (and stocks fall), EDV can go up 50% or more, and yet is a viable low-cost longer-term holding.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This fund is also available as a super cheap (0.12% expense ratio - just like the ETF) admiral class open-end fund: Vanguard Mortgage-Backed Securities Index Fund Admiral Shares (VMBSX), with a $10k minimum. For those that can make the $50k minimum, Vanguard GNMA Fund Admiral Shares (VFIJX) is a slightly more volatile (higher duration/higher yield) choice. Vanguard GNMA Fund Investor Shares (VFIIX) is a good $3k minimum alternative.
