Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2014

  • We continue to focus on higher-coupon bonds priced at premiums in order to take advantage of their attractive relative value. In addition, higher-coupon bonds offer greater protection from rising interest rates than lower-coupon bonds.
  • We continue to selectively increase weightings in lower-quality bonds due to attractive credit spreads and solid underlying fundamentals.
  • The portfolio continues to maintain an overweight to revenue bonds, including healthcare and transportation bonds, relative to its benchmark, the Barclays 1-15 Year Municipal Bond Index, given the dedicated income stream and favorable return prospects.
  • The portfolio is overweight bonds with maturities of six to eight years, relative to its benchmark, rather than a more barbelled structure due to the steepness of the yield curve and total return potential.
