Unlike active stock pickers, the best managers from the likes of PIMCO, DoubleLine, Guggenheim and Loomis Sayles have proven track records of adding value for their investors versus a passive benchmark. Look back through my blog and you will see numerous references to some of my favorite funds like the DoubleLine Total Return Bond Fund (MUTF:DBLTX) or the PIMCO Income Fund (MUTF:PONDX). More recently, we have focused on their complimentary exchange-traded fund portfolios via the PIMCO Active Bond ETF (NYSEARCA:BOND) and the SPDR DoubleLine Total Return Tactical ETF (NYSEARCA:TOTL).
The DoubleLine Total Return Bond Fund posted an estimated net outflow of $1 billion in January, its third straight net cash withdrawal after it bled $3.5 billion the previous month, data from research firm Morningstar showed on Wednesday. The fund, which launched in April 2010 and is DoubleLine's flagship, attracted a net $3.05 billion in new cash for all of 2016, the Morningstar data showed. Overall, DoubleLine's U.S. open-end mutual funds saw outflows of $190 million for January, Morningstar said.

The S&P 500 edged lower on Monday as Trump's protectionist stance sent investors scurrying for safe-haven assets.

In his first investor webcast this year, Gundlach said after the recent huge run-up in U.S. stock markets, investors should look to "peel off" their exposure to equities. Gundlach, known on Wall Street as the 'Bond King', reiterated an investment call he made in late 2016, saying he expects markets to reverse their post-election moves.
