    Low Supply a Catalyst for Junk Bond ETFs

    Broadly speaking, 2018 has been a trying year for fixed income investors. The Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond Index, one of the most widely followed bond benchmarks, is lower by 1.5% year-to-date, but some corners of the fixed income space are delivering solid performances. Perhaps surprisingly, the positives in the bond space include high-yield corporate bonds.

    Chinese Junk Bond Yields on the Move

    China’s dollar-denominated junk bonds have been on a skyward move since the beginning of 2018 followed recently by 13 consecutive days of declines, but it appears that yields on these below-investment grade debt issues could be on the move up again. While yields were declining since mid-July as a result of the Chinese government undertaking an easing path to give its economy a shot in the arm, Dongxing Securities (HK) Asset Management Co. says this measure could only be temporary. “Although market sentiment has improved quite a bit for now, no one knows at this point how long the easing policy will sustain,” said Chak Lau, a credit investment manager at Dongxing Securities (HK) Asset Management Co. “It’s difficult to say whether the central bank will stop the music and continue to emphasize the deleveraging campaign again.

    China Bond Yields Climb as Government Signals Policy Shift

    The yield on the benchmark 10-year Chinese government bonds ended 2.9 basis points higher at 3.562 percent as Beijing vowed that it would pursue a more "vigorous" fiscal policy in order to stimulate growth as expectations of looser conditions begin to rise.

Premier Li may be concerned about the negative impact of deleveraging on growth,” ANZ economists Raymond Yeung and Betty Wang said in a note.

    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.

    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.
