  • Jeremy Grantham Reduces More Than 250 Stakes in Second Quarter

    Jeremy Grantham (Trades, Portfolio), chairman of the board of Boston-based asset management firm Grantham Mayo Van Otterloo, is known for his ability to identify speculative market “bubbles” and using that knowledge to lead clients away from financial disasters.


    Like most of the gurus we follow, Grantham bought some stakes, sold some stakes and added to some others in the second quarter. But, by far, most of his activity involved reducing existing stakes – more than 250 of them.

The intro quote above pretty well sums up his outlook. All about that (bass) Fed, about that (bass) Fed. The jingle continues to ring in my mind.

  • What Do High-Yield Maturities Tell Us About Timing the Credit Cycle? Another Take on the Wall

    Everybody involved in the credit markets wants to know when the cycle will turn. On the one hand, it feels like we are in the later stages of the current cycle and investors are afraid to overstay their welcome. On the other hand, credit spreads are close to historical averages while many competing asset classes seem overvalued. For those who are currently invested in high-yield bonds and leveraged loans, accurately timing the cycle will be the difference between safely clipping coupons and realizing painful losses. And for those of us who specialize in distressed debt investing, the turn of the cycle should create the next great opportunity. Most investors base their high-yield outlook on expected defaults.


    Credit strategists and portfolio managers frequently point to the timing of debt maturities – the so-called “maturity wall” – as a major determinant of near-term default rates. Presumably, with fewer debt maturities, there will be fewer defaults, and therefore higher returns. This assumption makes intuitive sense. After all, the inability to pay debts as they come due is a classic definition of insolvency. The more time companies have until their debts mature, the greater the chances they can find a way to refinance. Today, many credit strategists point to the relative lack of near-term high-yield maturities as a reason for investors to be constructive on credit.

      


  • Why Jeremy Grantham Believes We’re Not In a Bubble...Yet

    With the Shiller P/E ratio nearing all-time highs, many famous investors have expressed concerns that we are in a new stock market bubble.


    For those who need a primer, Robert Shiller of Yale University invented the Shiller P/E to measure the market's valuation. His valuation metric is believed to be a more reasonable market valuation indicator than the P/E ratio because it eliminates fluctuation of the ratio caused by the variation of profit margins during business cycles.

      


  • Predictable and Undervalued Companies - Part IV

    With these articles, I want to highlight all the companies that according to GuruFocus have a predictable business and are undervalued according to the Price/DCF (Average). I also apply another filter to those results to give you only the companies that have a significant EPS growth rate.


    When a company is undervalued but earnings are growing, we can believe that sooner or later Mr. Market will take care of the price.

  • Why Ray Dalio Has 60% of His Portfolio in Emerging Market ETFs

    Ray Dalio (Trades, Portfolio) is the founder of the largest hedge fund on the planet, Bridgewater Associates. With over $160 billion in assets under management, his investment company has some of the best performance statistics of any manager over the long term. His Pure Alpha Fund (the largest) has lost money only three times in 20 years, producing a near 20% annual compound return before fees.


    While you need an initial investment of $100 million and at least $5 billion in total investable assets to buy into his funds, individual investors can glean some of Dalio’s best ideas from his SEC filings every quarter. Two major holdings stick out.
