"The walls are lined with them," said the Glen Burnie resident, shrugging.

It's easy to explain the flood of investor money into bond funds.After all, three-month bank certificates of deposit yielded about 5.5 percent in the fall of 1991. These days, yields are stuck at around 2.5 percent.This dramatic drop in return dictates new strategies, so the higher yields of tax-free and taxable bond funds have lured considerable investor money.If an investor realizes that the value of bond funds can fluctuate on interest rate movement, and that factors such as duration of the underlying bonds and credit risk also play a role, he'll likely be rewarded.
