Views are as of the date above and are subject to change based on market conditions and other factors. These views should not be construed as a recommendation for any specific security or sector.
Ultrashort funds are not "money market" funds.  A money market fund attempts to maintain a stable net asset value through compliance relevant SEC rules.  Ultrashort funds are not governed by those rules, and their shares will flucuate in value.
Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.
Duration is a measure of a security's price sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Securities with longer durations are more sensitive to changes in interest rates than securities of shorter durations.
