What happened to PRTBX, the all-treasury fund from the people who brought you PRPFX? It's all treasurys and all-short term for the low, low price of 0.7% O0
Looks like it hasn't paid anything for a while, which is weird for an income fund. Closed?

Damn! With an expense ratio of .72% this one is a money loser for the actual investor. Here's the Morningstar link:

It sports a total loss of 3% over ten years and I'm pretty sure it's quite a bit worse in real terms.

Maybe their selling point should be, “Look, you’re going to lose money on this, but it’ll be a steady, safe loss with minimal volatility.”

Yeah, you can't have sequence-of-return risk if there are no returns!

Listen, I hate to think of all the wasted people hours setting up and running this gem. How about if I just send you a monthly check?
