  • USA subprime võlakirjade ja kinnisvaraturu probleemid ette näinud võlakirjaturu staar Bill Gross on taas positiivne mortgage debt suhtes

    Pimco's Bill Gross triples bet on mortgages

    Government policy is moving to sanctify the status of the government-sponsored agencies," Gross said, according to the newspaper. "It became a question of which institutions would be sheltered by the government umbrella."
    Gross' change of heart follows a year when his fund with roughly $128 billion of assets under management outgained nearly all its peers.
    He had slashed holdings of mortgage and corporate debt, and correctly predicted the U.S. housing slump and deep interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.
    Gross said Pimco has been buying largely mortgage agency debt and "not the subprime garbage." He also called U.S. Treasuries "the most overvalued asset," according to the newspaper.
    Mark Porterfield, a Pimco spokesman, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
    Pimco Total Return invested just over 20 percent in mortgage debt a year ago, according to the newspaper.
    Such debt comprises 43 percent of the Lehman Aggregate Bond Index, the newspaper said. The index is a widely used benchmark for the U.S. fixed-income market.
    The Total Return fund has returned 3.51 percent this year, outpacing 98 percent of its U.S. intermediate bond fund peers, according to fund information service Morningstar Inc. Over the last year, it has returned 11.8 percent, outgaining 99 percent of its peers.

  • All Signs Point to More Downside

    Attack is the best form of defense.
    -- Proverb

    A change in market direction is playing out in textbook fashion. Last Friday and Monday the market began to struggle as dip buyers began to lose traction. On Tuesday and Wednesday, bids disappeared, as fear over high oil prices took hold, and then on Thursday, we saw some modest buying on low volume. That leads us to this morning, where crude oil is once again weighing on the market action.

    All signs point to a more severe market pullback. Such things generally don't play out in a straight line, but the price action is exactly what you'd expect to see as the market rolls over and the fundamental news has suddenly become far less optimistic.

    In retrospect, the bounce of the March low based on the idea that "the worst is over" was classic bear-market thinking. Folks are always anxious to be optimistic again after an ugly pullback, and invariable do so too quickly. The real pain of a bear market comes when hope is revived and then crushed.

    Obviously, I'm not overly optimistic about the market at this point, which brings up the issue of how you deal with it. Many investors get in trouble in a poor market by being too passive. They hold on to stocks with the thinking that this too shall pass, and our favorite stocks will rebound if we simply stay patient. When pullbacks persist, and we see our portfolio slowly drip lower, we then throw in the towel and take much deeper losses than we would have if we had acted aggressively in the early stages of a pullback.

    If the market is making a change in trend, as I believe is the case, now is the time to be aggressive in repositioning yourself. Many have had a good run off the March lows, and rather than hope to keep that going, now is the time to protect those gains and not let them slip away.

    It is possible the market may find its footing and resume its uptrend, but aggressive defense at this point in time will not foreclose you from changing back to a more bullish posture. It is always far more important that you protect gains and capital in a struggling market than it is that you be positioned for potential profits.

    The easiest thing to do in a market that is starting to act poorly is nothing. It is inaction due to vague hopes that causes us to sit and do little while our positions start to break down. The vast majority of the losses that occurred back in 2000 were due to investors sticking their heads in the sand and hoping things would improve. Those who held on to their gains were those who were aggressive in playing defense.

    We have a weak open on the way, as crude oil causes more nervousness. With a three-day weekend ahead of us, trading is likely to be thin and choppy, so be careful out there.
