Portfolio Positioning as of 06/30/2015

  • Following a mild first-quarter contraction, the U.S. economy was bolstered by a resurgence in consumer spending and further labor market improvements. Despite early signs of wage inflation, the Federal Reserve adopted a more dovish stance in its policy deliberations, and reiterated its commitment to supporting economic growth. This change in tone led to modest depreciation of the U.S. dollar against developed currencies such as the euro and contributed to the stabilization of oil prices.
  • We slightly reduced our equity allocation through sales of profitable positions in U.S. growth stocks, while maintaining an overweight to international equities. Although the Greek debt crisis and weakness in Chinese shares dominated overseas headlines late in the quarter, non-U.S. stocks—particularly those in developed European markets—should continue to benefit from a relatively strong U.S. dollar, lower energy costs, and highly accommodative monetary policy.
  • In fixed income, we took advantage of tightening credit spreads to reduce our allocations in high-yield bonds. In addition, we added to our position in investment-grade bonds, when valuations became more attractive as longer-term interest rates reached their highs of the year. We continue to maintain a small overweight to credit-sensitive fixed income, however, as fundamentals remain favorable and defaults are running well below long-term averages. Furthermore, attractive yields and relatively limited interest-rate sensitivity should support credit as the Federal Reserve moves closer to “liftoff.” 
  • We added to our positions in emerging market currencies during the period, and now we are neutral versus our long-term targets. While we expect secular U.S. dollar appreciation, aggressive central bank stimulus should lead to more balanced global growth, which is supportive of emerging economies. As in past quarters, we continue to favor countries that should benefit from low oil prices as well as those with ties to an improving European economy.
