    The junk bond market has good things to say about the stock market

    As junk bond spreads were blowing out in January 2016, the price of oil price was collapsing and I sought the advice of a seasoned bond trader on some legacy junk bond positions for a new client. It looked like those low-rated bonds were about to go to high-yield heaven. The bond trader, Mike Lanier, was remarkably calm.

    Junk Bond ETFs Could Disappoint This Year

    High-yield corporate bond exchange traded funds, such as the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corp Bond ETF (HYG) and the SPDR Bloomberg Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK), struggled last year. Some market observers believe the junk bond rally could be short-lived and that the asset class could disappoint again this year. “According to Bloomberg, high yield bonds limped into 2019 after suffering from a December selloff that was the worst month for the asset class since 2011,” said State Street in a recent note.

    Is it Still High Times for High Yield?

    Exchange-traded fund (ETF) flows are showing that a risk-on sentiment is slowly creeping back into the markets, making the case for high-yield bond funds again. A volatile end to 2018 no doubt elicited a risk-off sentiment that permeated throughout the capital markets, but thus far in 2019, high-yield bond funds experienced an aggregate one-month inflow of $2.2 billion, according to data from XTF. According to Guggenheim Partners’ Scott Minerd, a spike in corporate defaults could be exactly what causes the party to end for all markets.

    Jeffrey Gundlach expects 2019 to continue to be a volatile year. Gundlach believes that higher yields on bonds (HYG) (BND) will hurt stocks in what he’s called a “tug of war,” as reported by CNBC. Gundlach believes that due to buybacks, the equity markets have turned into a collateralized debt obligation residual, which he believes is “getting thinner and thinner, riskier and riskier.” He added, “So, the balance sheets of corporations are balanced on ever-dwindling equities as they buy back shares and increase their leverage ratios.

    Dimon Says Market Overreacted and Predicts Decent Growth in 2019

    Dimon Says Market Overreacted and Predicts Decent Growth in 2019 ## Jamie Dimon thinks markets overreacted Jamie Dimon, the chair and CEO of JPMorgan Chase (JPM), believes that the recent market sell-off was an overreaction and there is no recession on the immediate horizon. During an interview with Fox Business on January 7, which was released today, he said the markets are overreacting to short-term sentiment around a whole bunch of complex issues. He, however, added that some of that was a “rational response” to concerns about slower growth, higher chances of recession, and trade conflict. ## Debt markets He mentioned that while the lack of deleveraging and the liquidation of the debt markets were mainly responsible for the US economy (IVV) (QQQ) getting into trouble in 2008, now we are facing a lack of bond issuance (HYG) (AGG). He added that in December as growth slowed down, people got scared and issuers didn’t issue, leading to widening credit spreads. He believes that this will change and is more of a normalization process after abnormally low spreads for a long time. December 2018 was the worst December for stocks since 1931. The major concerns plaguing the markets (SPY) include the ongoing US-China trade war, a possibility of monetary policy mistakes from the Fed, earnings (QQQ) deceleration, China’s (FXI) slowdown, and a potential global slowdown. ## Decent growth in 2019 Dimon also sounded optimistic about the other indicators for the US economy (DIA) such as a job market with more jobs and higher wages. He also thinks that consumer spending is also quite strong at this time. Apart from this, he thinks the Fed’s more accommodative response recently, strong earnings, and firm employment market would mean that America could see decent growth in 2019.
