This will improve, because bonds mature at par, then you re-load at higher interest rates. The ETF is down, but don't sell. This will correct and you will benefit from higher interest rates. Be patiebt.

We are likely bottoming in the interest rate cycle. He sees interest rates staying much lower for much longer, but thinks they are probably bottoming. If there is a very glacial rise in interest rates as he expects, that is very good for short term interest bonds. This is a good ETF if you want to hold it for that.

Short-term corporate bonds, ZCS-T or CBO-T? They both have very similar holdings. This one weights the bonds in the portfolio related to the size they have in the market, whereas CBO weights them with a traditional laddering strategy, each ladder getting an equal weight. It is really hard to say which is better, because all bond ETF’s are ladders of a sort.

Short Term Corp Bond ETF. Doesn't think there are risks any more with corporate bonds. This will give you a bit of yield pickup without venturing into preferreds. (Similar to XCB-T, which he owns.)
