    Junk Bond ETF Focuses on High Liquidity and High-Yield

    In times when markets are frantic and investors need to unload quickly, high liquidity is a boon and that is where an ETF like SPDR Blmbg Barclays High Yield Bd ETF (JNK) can be advantageous. The focus of the ETF is to track the price and yield performance of the Bloomberg Barclays US High Yield Very Liquid Index (VLI). Eighty percent of JNK's total assets comprise the Bloomberg Barclays VLI and based on the chart below, a steady climb of the higher bottom levels may signal a possible run up in the second half of 2018.

    Where Are the Benchmark-Beating Bond Funds?

    Longtime readers of Morningstar's research have heard us relentlessly beat the drum for funds that charge low fees. For all our manager research analysts' combing through historical portfolios, scrutinizing performance data, and grilling portfolio managers to formulate views on a fund's People and Process Pillars, there's no surer indicator that a fund has an advantage over its peers than a cheap price tag. Expenses are especially crucial to consider for fixed-income funds, because returns between bond funds tend to be more compressed.

    Investors are retreating from these bond ETFs as yields rise

    A swift rise in bond yields in 2018 has sent fixed-income investors scrambling, with major categories of bond exchange-traded funds seeing steep outflows, while other groups have found favor. While flows into bond products remain positive overall—extending a decadelong rotation into fixed-income from stocks—investors have retreated from notable categories, a sign they believe yields could continue rising, which would mean further deterioration in the funds, as prices and yields move inversely to each other. Notably, the yield for the U.S. 10-year Treasury note (XTUP:TMUBMUSD10Y=X) topped 3% on Tuesday and neared its highest level since 2011.

    How Big a Problem Could US Debt Become?

    If we turn back the clock to before the recession, we find that US debt levels weren’t this high, and unconventional programs like quantitative easing helped the economy recover from the Great Recession. The US Treasury must deal with higher interest rates and borrow more to keep the economy running, and this cycle could turn into a downward spiral unless revenues increase. The US Treasury is the king of the credit markets, and it’s followed by investment-grade (LQD)(VCSH) bonds and junk (JNK) bonds.

    Have We Missed a Greater Threat in the Recent Market Turmoil?

    The recent market turmoil that shook investors’ confidence has settled for the time being, but the fear that another correction is around the corner could be unsettling. The reason for the market correction was the continued increase in bond (BND) yields, which resulted from rising inflation expectations. While everyone was focusing on market turmoil, investors may have missed out on the possibility of increased government debt, fueled by recent tax cuts and an expansive budget.

In his pre-released statement, he noted high asset price valuations, a firming of inflation pressures and ongoing labor market tightness as reasons to continue on the path of increasingly aggressive policy tightening. Treasury bonds strengthened, pushing down yields.
