    A Big Deal: Merger-Arbitrage Funds Are Benefiting From Higher Cash Rates

    Liquid alternatives that invest primarily in corporate activities stood out in a volatile 2018 with relatively strong performance, and higher cash rates improve their prospects. These event-driven strategies can invest in any corporate action event but are most commonly involved in merger arbitrage. While higher cash rates should boost total returns for any alternative strategy that uses derivatives and holds cash collateral, its effect on total return is more apparent for lower-volatility strategies like merger arbitrage. Event-driven funds are a subset of the market-neutral Morningstar Category because they primarily invest long and short in equities.

    Morningstar's Annual Global Fund Flows Report Finds Markets Resilient Despite Decreased Demand for Funds in 2018

    CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar, Inc.

    Bill Gross’s Retirement From Janus Marks Sunset of Bond-Star Era

    Gross, 74, announced Monday that he was ending his 47-year career managing investments, leaving the daily grind as his Janus Henderson Global Unconstrained Bond Fund bleeds assets and barely breaks even after fees. At Janus, Gross was given the freedom to do anything he wanted, but his fund ended up not doing much of anything. For investors, his exit comes as the decades-long bull market in bonds, which fueled his success, is waning and interest rates climb off the post-crisis floor.

    Morningstar's Model Retirement Saver Portfolios

    Not only do too-active investors incur higher trading (and potentially tax) costs than more hands-off investors do, but very active investors also subject themselves to the costs of bad timing. Investors crowded into bond funds in the years following the financial crisis, for example, when in reality they should have been rebalancing back into stocks. Morningstar's fund flow data demonstrate how investors make these poor timing decisions.

Assuming an investor focuses on low-cost funds (whether active or index), creates a sound asset-allocation plan, and doesn't undermine his or her results by buying high and selling low, it's possible to create a successful portfolio plan using an all index funds, all actively managed products, or some of both.

    The Year in U.S. Equity Funds, 2018

    A post-Christmas rally erased some of the losses, but through Dec. 27, the S&P 500 was down 5% for the year to date, including a 14% loss in the fourth quarter. The Russell 2000 Index of small-cap stocks was down 12% for the year to date and 21% in the fourth quarter, while the NASDAQ Composite was down 4% and 18% in the fourth quarter. Growth performed better than value, as many growth stocks benefited from strong earnings and a perception that they'll still be able to do well in a slowing economy.
