Portfolio Positioning
as of 6/30/2022

  • There have been several macroeconomic factors that have kept a lid on equity returns thus far in 2022. Technical signals continue to be challenged; inflation is too high; liquidity, as measured by central bank balance sheets, which was expanding throughout 2020 and 2021, is now shrinking; credit spreads are widening; earnings are growing but seem more likely to be revised lower than higher in the months ahead. All these headwinds create a challenging backdrop for the convertibles market in the near term.
  • Inflation appears to now be sowing the seeds of a potential economic slowdown, as higher prices have cut demand in areas such as retail and housing. At the same time, efforts by central banks to bring down inflation has led to wealth erosion in financial assets while yields have fallen off their peak. As a result, this evidence of a slowdown appears to be gathering momentum.
  • We continue to find Convertibles attractive, particularly those with lower equity sensitivity than the broader market.  As of the end of the quarter, more than a quarter of the U.S. convertible market is more bond-like than equity-like – a significantly higher percentage than we’ve seen in some time.  Many of the underlying stocks of these issuers have corrected significantly over the last year but have strong credit characteristics and enough time left before maturity where the embedded options can still deliver upside well above the stated yield-to-maturity, in our view.
