    Is the High Yield Party Starting to Wind Down?

    With the extended bull run raging on, it's been a boon for high yield fixed income investors where a risk-on environment has been fueling gains within the riskier bond classes. With the high yield market getting more risky, it's necessary for investors to shed some of that risk and get more strategic with their capital allocation. "As a credit debt holder, you've got no upside, you only have downside [at this point]," said Pilar Gomez-Bravo, director of fixed income Europe for MFS Investment Management.

    Is High Yield Underperformance Clearing the Way for Quality?

    As a result, high yield has underperformed lately as investors flocked to the safer confines of quality oriented assets like investment-grade debt issues. "The market was clearly pricing in a good chance of a trade deal in May and that did not happen," said Todd Schomberg, senior portfolio manager for Invesco Fixed Income. "I wouldn't call it a full-blown flight to quality," said John Hollyer, principal and global head of Vanguard Fixed Income Group.

    Buying Opportunities are Abound in Investment-Grade Debt

    As the capital markets were in the thick of the extended bull run that peaked in the summer prior to the October sell-offs, high-yield assets saw an influx of investor capital, beating out their higher-rated rivals in investment-grade corporate bonds. After investors got washed through the October volatility cycle, that may have tamped down their risk-on sentiment and this is where Goldman Sachs sees a potential buying opportunity after investment-grade debt fell out of favor during the bull run. With investors hungry for risk, the yields in investment-grade corporate bonds weren't enough to satiate that appetite.

    Emerging Markets Watching Fed Decisions Closely

    Come September, emerging markets will be watching the Federal Reserve closely with respect to monetary policy or even more specifically, what the central bank decides to do with interest rates. A rising dollar could mean financial instability for emerging market nations trying to pay outstanding U.S. debt obligations with local currencies.

    Italian Bond Yields Rise Amid Growing U.S.-Turkey Tensions

    Growing tensions between the Unites States and Turkey hit the benchmark 10-year Italian bond yield as it rose to 3.102, almost matching its highest level over two months ago as concern regarding the country's banking sector and its exposure to Turkish borrowers gave investors reason to fret. Exacerbating the issue is a shaky Italian government and persistent questions marks with respect to its political health. “You have risk aversion and concerns about Turkey contagion risk hitting Italy against a backdrop of the Italian government not quite on the firmest footing,” said David Vickers, a senior portfolio manager at Russell Investments in London. Turkey continues to face ongoing pressure on its currency as well as its bonds, which has replaced Argentina as the worst performer for bond investors, according to a report by Bloomberg. Against the dollar, the Turkish lira has experienced a Niagara Falls-like drop to its current, depressed levels the past week.
