High Yield Bond Update: A Q&A with Seth Meyer


In this interview, Portfolio Manager Seth Meyer, CFA, discusses some of the factors that are influencing the U.S. high-yield market.
 

Q: How late-cycle is the U.S., and how does this impact your view of credit quality?

Seth Meyer: Since the Second World War, the average economic expansion in the U.S. has lasted around 60 months. The current expansion has already lasted 96 months, leading us to believe we are much closer to the end of the business cycle.

Age of post-WWII economic expansion in the U.S. (months)

As we conduct our fundamental, bottom-up credit research, we emphasize two key things: management teams focused on deleveraging and companies with free-cash-flow generative business models. When valuations get tight and we are near the end of the credit cycle, we are looking for stability of free-cash- flow generation. Our approach to quality is less about emphasizing higher-rated high-yield securities, and more about identifying what we believe to be higher quality business models. In this environment, we typically find names in less cyclical sectors to be attractive.

Q: Has faith begun to fade in an extended economic and credit cycle under President Trump?

SM: In our view, the most accretive economic event that President Trump could carry out is corporate and personal tax reform. However, the hurdle is clearly higher now than it was in November 2016, and the administration’s inability to-date to execute on the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act creates doubt about Trump’s ability to accomplish any reform legislation, whether in health care, taxes or infrastructure spending. That said, Trump has more cross-aisle support in Congress for tax reform than he does for health care reform. We believe that if the administration can accomplish tax

reform, particularly corporate tax reform, the cycle can be extended. Failure to execute even a watered- down version of tax reform would likely cause investors to lose faith in the administration’s ability to extend the cycle.

Despite distractions and the administration’s lack of accomplishments thus far, the insatiable demand for yield, in combination with positive gross domestic product (GDP) and employment growth, relatively strong company fundamentals and the potential for tax reform, creates ongoing investor interest in high yield. Spreads will likely widen if we see recessionary pressures or a turn in GDP, but we see markets expressing extreme complacency that such an event will not happen right now.

Q: Although high yield is less sensitive to rate risk than investment-grade credit, does monetary tightening by the Federal Reserve (Fed) pose any risks?

SM: Fed tightening puts the most pressure on the front end of the yield curve. However, it typically leads to volatility in longer duration assets (including the five-year part of the curve, which high yield is most exposed to) and the most interest rate sensitive sectors. As you look lower down the ratings quality spectrum, issuers will be less correlated to a rate hike. With BB-rated bonds (nearly 50% of the high-yield market as represented by the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Corporate High Yield Bond Index) the most correlated to moves in interest rates, we expect a component of interest rate sensitivity as the Fed tightens but not to the same degree as we would see in investment grade.

Q: Does the Fed’s tightening raise your interest in financials?

SM: The most recent tightening does not raise our interest in financials, as financials tend to perform well with a steeper yield curve. At the moment, the dampened outlook for growth and inflation is leading to a flatter curve, creating an unfavorable environment for financials. If, however, the Trump administration manages to successfully implement growth-enhancing reforms, the back end of the curve is likely to sell off, and then we would find financials attractive. In such an instance, the Fed would be behind the curve. It would take them a lengthy period of time to catch up, so we would expect financials then to benefit from a steeper curve for some time.

Q: Do any sectors look more attractive or less attractive, and why?

SM: We are looking for companies with stable free-cash-flow profiles. Cable communications and food and beverage issuers are attractive at this juncture, as are health care issuers, specifically hospitals. The societal need for hospital services leads to these asset-rich entities being strong risk-adjusted opportunities, in our view. Some are selling assets; others are diversifying business models out of the pure acute care hospital and into higher margin businesses such as ambulatory surgery centers.

Furthermore, most U.S. hospital issuers have opted to conserve capital and pay down debt as they consider the implications of still-undecided health care reforms.

We are less focused on retailers, including fast fashion and most department stores, that are facing challenges as consumers shift their shopping online.

 

Fixed income securities are subject to interest rate, inflation, credit and default risk. The bond market is volatile. As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. The return of principal is not guaranteed, and prices may decline if an issuer fails to make timely payments or its credit strength weakens.

Bond ratings are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest)

Nasdaq Technical Take: Breaking down BCOM


Yesterday crude oil made fresh lows for 2017 and its YTD performance is now a negative (19.8%).  It is weighing on the broader commodity class and related tracking instruments as crude makes up ~12% of the Bloomberg commodity index (BCOM).  After five straight down years from 2011 to 2015 with average annual declines of (13.5%), the BCOM index appeared to be emerging from a vicious bear market in 2016 when it rebounded 11.4%.

However, 2016 is looking more like a bear market rally as this year’s rout in oil, along with a range of other commodities like natural gas, soybeans, sugar, corn and coffee, have driven the BCOM index to a YTD decline of (8.9%).  Last week the BCOM broke a nine-month support level at 82 and this week is seeing downside follow-through.  MTD it is down (3.7) for its worst monthly decline since July 2016.  The weekly RSI is making 15-month lows at the current 33 level, while the next the next obvious support level is down another 3.8% at 77.  This year’s deflationary price action is occurring as the Federal Reserve just raised the overnight lending rate three times in six months, along with recent projections to taper the balance sheet and another rate hike in the second half of 2017.  Barring a turnaround in crude and the broader commodity complex, one has to wonder whether or not the Fed will need to taper its own forecasts.

Nasdaq Market Intelligence Desk - Equity Market Insight June 22, 2017


As of 12:30PM:

  • NASDAQ Composite +0.13% Dow +0.11% S&P 500 +0.1% Russell 2000 +0.4%
  • NASDAQ Advancers: 1354 / Decliners: 845
  • Today’s Volume (100day avg): +21%

US stocks are mixed this morning, while Biotechs (+1.3%) continue their recent surge. Yesterday’s EIA report initially gave Oil prices a boost, but a late day sell-off put the price per barrel at its lowest level since November. Gold is higher for the 2nd straight day, a streak the precious metal hasn’t posted in 2 weeks.

  • The low volatility and high call skew (implied volatility vs out of the money calls) in Gold has set up for an attractive opportunity in SPDR Gold (GLD) Call Spreads according to derivative strategist Chris Jacobsen from Susquehanna. An investor would be expecting to see moderate rise in GLD’s price for the trade to pay off.
  • The Nasdaq Biotech Index is tracking towards its best week since November, widely outpacing the rest of the Healthcare space. Insurers are getting a boost this morning after the Senate’s healthcare proposal was revealed. Republican’s plan will add $50 billion over the next four year to healthcare exchanges, as the cash injection is a “stabilization” effort. The vote will be brought to the floor next week.
  • Tomorrow will be the 1 year anniversary of Brexit with the UK seeing their currency fall 15% vs the US Dollar over the past year. The BOE recently made some surprising statements on possibly raising rates to support the British Pound, while curbing inflation. Nomura analysts believes the BOE will speed-up hike efforts and raise rates at the August meeting. The firm originally expected the next hike in mid 2019, but “With the bank growing increasingly intolerant of above-target inflation, it has begun to feel that weaker data would now be needed to prove the case for keeping policy on hold”, they stated in a report today.

标普500(ES)连续形成第三个周十字线


标普500(ES)随昨日形成第三个连续周十字线而走低。尽管ES一直是我观察列表中最强的指数期货,但目前交易处于略低于2017高点,受从刚刚低于上行通道阻力线获利回吐的影响,ES走势很不稳定。虽然ES仍有机会再次从4小时图表的上行支撑线拔高,我将耐心的等待出现下跌,,一旦发生下跌时,我将开始择机做空。日和4小时的RSI(相对强弱指标),Stochastics(随机指标)和MACD(指数平滑异同平均线)均出现下滑或盘整近日的损失。理想情况下,我会在红色区域做空(日图表),并将目标定在下周中的绿色区域。如果我是一个波段交易人(虽然在我个人账户中很少隔夜持有,我设置的止损更窄),我可能会在琥珀色/黄色区域可设置一个止损。
