I'm looking for recommendations for a good bond index fund or etf that is broadly-based, has an extremely low expense ratio, but de-emphasizes (or even eliminates) the lowest-yielding categories (such as US treasuries) so they don't dilute the yield. (Is that the general strategy of "core" bond funds?) I'd prefer to stay away from high-yield funds though. Thx!
