comment How much should I fund an HSA? Is there a danger in over-funding one?
I gave preference to an IRA, because you can get a current-year deduction for a traditional IRA contribution, then convert it to a Roth IRA later, based on your tax situation. I valued the tax-saving strategies over the HSA's access to funds for medical needs.

comment Yield of a municipal bond with a sinking fund?
Thanks, but my question concerns a different issue. I understand how to calculate yield to maturity, as long as the entire principal is paid back at the maturity date. What I'm unclear about is the effect of a sinking fund on expected yield. If I buy bonds today at a premium and they are redeemed at par far earlier than maturity, this capital loss eats up part of my return -- but how much?

comment Yield of a municipal bond with a sinking fund?
Can't tell for sure, but since the schedule lists a price (par) and the bonds are listed as lacking "sinking fund protection," I'm presuming the issuer is paying off the debt by calling a portion of the bonds each year.
