    to what we were just talking about with the big outflows at PIMCO . Investors aren't giving up on fixed income; they're just buying different funds. Toward the top of the list [TICKER:MWTRX] is MetWest Total Return Bond (MWTRX). I assume that that is money coming from PIMCO and going right into that fund? Kinnel: Exactly. We had a chance to visit both firms back to back in March. It was fascinating because, of course, MetWest is a prime beneficiary. They are getting huge inflows. They are hiring. Things are going great for them. And it makes sense that they would get a lot of that money. It's a firm that was started by ex- PIMCO managers and run in a lot of ways like [TICKER:PTTAX] PIMCO Total Return, though with less-extreme use of derivatives. But they do use a lot of different levers--duration bets, yield-curve bets, sector bets, even some currency. So, it's a lot like PIMCO , only organizationally much more stable. So, it makes sense [that the fund is getting inflows]. So far, the inflows don't seem to have had a big impact, but I definitely think it's worth watching because they don't want to be as derivative-dependent as PIMCO . So, that would imply that there's maybe a lower ceiling on how much they can manage. Benz: I guess that's a question for you, Russ: I know, in the past, we've said, "Oh, don't worry too much--especially if it's a core bond fund that's seeing big inflows." But are there limits to how large one of these core bond funds can get before you start worrying about performance? Kinnel: So, I think [that the impact of flows] in a core bond fund, especially at a big organization like MetWest or PIMCO , is much smaller; but over time, it can have a real impact. If you look at even [TICKER:PTTAX] PIMCO Total Return, it used to be able to add more value through issue selection, but as it got bigger and bigger, it was much more about making market calls with derivatives. You can always bet on interest rates falling or this end of the yield curve moving that way or whatever, and so it did change even [TICKER:PTTAX] PIMCO Total Return over time. But it's a much more minor impact than, say, a small- or mid-cap equity fund where it can have a profound impact. Benz: [TICKER:DODIX] Dodge & Cox Income (DODIX) is another fund that apparently would seem to be a beneficiary of money coming out of [TICKER:PTTAX] PIMCO Total Return. Kinnel: That's right. It's obvious why this fund would have appeal. It's been a good performer; it's got a lot more corporates than your typical intermediate-bond fund, but also tremendous stability. Dodge & Cox's people tend to make a career of it. So, if PIMCO's got all of this turmoil, it's understandable [for investors to look at a fund like Dodge & Cox where nothing ever happens];
