Fidelity Intermediate Municipal Income

Symbol: FLTMX
Expense ratio: 0.36%

Fidelity Intermediate Municipal Income is a bond fund and a member of the Kiplinger 25. With a 1.3% yield, this fund won’t make you rich. But the interest is free of federal income taxes, so for a top-bracket taxpayer, the payout is equivalent to a 2.3% taxable yield. Average credit quality is a solid single-A.
