Treasuries rise on unemployment data

Publication: CNN Money
Date: January 7, 2011
Expert: William Larkin
Abstract: Blake Ellis of CNN Money interviews Cabot Money Management fixed-income portfolio manager William Larkin about the recent rise in Treasury prices. Larkin says yields have the potential of climbing higher in the near future, though there are several external factors that could deter yields’ growth. “We’re back in the normal recovery period. Over the next year we’re probably likely to see that progression toward that 4 percent mark if things continue to improve to the upside. We’ve got a lot of positives but a lot of structural negatives that could hold yields down. Europe, trade problems, volatile currency fluctuations — these are all things that disrupt the economy and tend to push people into safer asset classes like Treasuries,” Larkin says.

Abstract: Sheyna Steiner of Bankrate.com speaks with William Larkin fixed-income portfolio manager at Cabot Money Management, about the low yields on bonds and their negative returns. Today’s inflation rate coupled with today’s yields leads to negative returns and a decrease in purchasing power over time. Larkin believes there is little relative value to be found in bonds in today’s environment. “If we look at the parts of the market that are under the long-term inflation rate, for instance the U.S. Broad Market, 1 to 3 years (an index) is yielding 1.6 percent. So that means that a good portion of the bond market is likely to return, in real terms, inflation-adjusted negative returns — unless deflation really kicks in,” says Larkin.

Abstract: Anthony Silva of WBZ Radio sits down with Rob Lutts, CIO and president of Cabot Money Management, to discuss reasons why this may be the time to invest in the stock market over pulling money out of it. “Investors are abandoning traditional investment ideas of investing invest both for growth and for safety and security. By taking their money out of equity and putting it solely in bonds, investors are abandoning any possibility of growth and of performance better than that of low fixed income returns, so I think it’s a mistake. Investors should look at equities today as an opportunity,” says Lutts.
