    Should investors favor cyclical or defensive stocks for the rest of the year? Analysts disagree

    One of the curious attributes of the U.S. stock market in 2018 is that while there are growing concerns over the outlook for growth going forward, sectors traditionally seen as safe have struggled the most, while the ones more closely correlated to macroeconomic conditions have generally risen.

    What This Week's Fed Move Means For Your Bonds

    For several years, the Fed had been raising rates at a relatively slow and cautious pace, in response to seeing the economy expanding at a "moderate pace." Importantly, this week that language changed to "sustained expansion." Central bankers are not likely to make drastic changes in their language, but the view is changing from cautious optimism, to recognizing that the U.S. appears to be seeing a more vigorous period of expansion. This implies the Fed is fairly committed to their current direction. With their interest rate announcement, Fed decision makers also indicate where they expect to see rates in the coming years.

    Are U.S. Interest Rates About to Rise Again?

    With the unemployment rate at a low 3.8%, rising wages and a healthy inflation level, the markets are poised for another rate hike by the Federal Reserve. The federal funds rate is currently in the range of 1.5% to 1.75%, but an increase of a quarter of a percentage point is expected, but not guaranteed. On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve will release the most recent economic forecasts, which could hint at additional hikes.

    How An iShares ETF Protects Corporate Bonds From Inflation

    Investors have fixed-income exchange traded funds dedicated to hedging interest rate risk they can choose from. A new fund features a hedge of its own, but it is an inflation hedge. The actively managed iShares Inflation Hedged Corporate Bond ETF (CBOE: LQDI) debuted last week.

    When The Best Fixed-Income Investment Is Floating-Rate Debt

    In this time of uncertainty surrounding the path of interest rates, floating rate bonds can be a good way to reduce benefit from interest rate hikes, without giving up much income today. Three-month LIBOR, the benchmark rate for most FRNs, is at 2.34%, which is high, by historical standards, versus other short-term rates like three-month T-Bills. You could buy bonds of individual companies, though you then need to do the credit work.

    Fear of Rising Rates Can Sow the Seeds of Bad Behavior

    Rising interest rates can hurt investors' fixed-income portfolios. In this article, I will examine the case of  PowerShares Senior Loan Portfolio BKLN , which has been a popular choice for investors looking to lessen the risk of rising rates. It is also perhaps the poster child for the futility of investors' efforts to stay a step ahead of the Fed. I will also explore other options from the menu of fixed-income exchange-traded funds, and beyond, that might help investors better manage interest-rate risk in their portfolios.

    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.
