    Fridson: High-Yield Has Never Been Junkier

    "Over time, covenant quality is worst when the high-yield spread-versus-Treasuries is narrow and when new-issue volume is high," the long-time market observer writes in a client note. "The bottom line is that covenant strength deteriorates when market conditions are most favorable for issuers." In addition, issuers of high-yield debt at the lower end of the quality scale find receptive buyers when the market is strong. Doing so would spark complaints from investors that they are charging high-yield fees to manage money market funds." Reflecting the high-yield market's firmness, the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond exchange-traded fund (HYG) and the SPDR Bloomberg Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) both ended Wednesday near their 52-week highs.

    Fridson: High Yield Has Been Extremely Overvalued for 17 Months

    Investors shouldn't get too complacent about high yield overvaluation -- even though it has remained at extreme levels for going on a year and a half, says Marty Fridson, chief investment officer of Lehmann Livian Fridson Advisors. In his latest article on LCD News, a division of S&P Market Intelligence, he reports: High-yield’s overvaluation intensified in August despite a 24 bps widening of the BAML High Yield Index’s OAS, from 361, to 385 bps. An increase of 42 bps, from 610, to 652, in the fair value spread more than offset that widening of the actual OAS.

    Sell Loan ETF, Buy Junk: Strategist Tchir

    Income-oriented investors should sell the PowerShares Senior Loan Portfolio exchange-traded fund (BKLN) and buy high-yield bonds or funds, says Brean Capital macro strategist Peter Tchir. In a follow-up to his previous recommendation to get out of the popular loan ETF or even short it, Tchir Tuesday expanded on why he prefers junk bonds to more conservative bank loans: "The Floating Rate element seems less valuable as the pace of Fed rate hikes slows significantly, if not coming to a complete standstill. "The seniority of being senior secured is less appealing here.
