In this lecture we discuss credit ratings and credit rating agencies, particularly as they relate to bond sales, credit risk, and default risk. We explain what credit risk is and what the ratings actually mean in terms of the risk of an organisation failing to meet its bond payment obligations. Along the way, we briefly mention commercial paper, liquidation rankings, the relationship of preference shares to bonds, and several more jargon terms used in the credit ratings arena.

Sandy Liang: What is the Credit Market Saying About the Business Cycle?
We recently caught up with Sandy Liang, President, Purpose Investments Partners, and Portfolio Manager of Purpose Investments' Credit and Fixed Income Funds and ETFs about the conflicting interpretation of signals coming from the credit market about where we are in the cycle. You might be surprised to find out what Sandy Liang thinks. "First of all the business cycle is the business cycle. A lot of investors are in the business of trying to forecast because when you're fully invested in equities, that's how you get really hurt, going into a recession. You can be down 20% before you know it," says Liang. "The great thing about what we do, is that we are credit investors. So we lend money, and we make a coupon off our investments every month. So when you're in the credit market, and you're a lender, the downturns are not nearly as severe." "A typical downturn, even high-yield market, which is not investment grade rated – so we're talking single-B on average – a typical downturn in the asset class, is maybe low to mid single digit negative return, in the depths of a recession," says Liang. "In that context, as an active manager, we can tailor our strategy so we can go more interest-sensitive, and more defensive when we see a downturn coming." Tune in as he shares his thoughts on the credit market, and about where his team is positioned given the current market conditions. *Sandy has more than 25 years of experience managing credit investments. He spent 17 years on Wall Street, leading fixed income for Cobalt Capital Management, and as a Senior Managing Director at Bear, Stearns & Co., where he was voted to Institutional Investor Magazine’s All-America Fixed Income Research Team for seven consecutive years.*

Money market mutual funds
Money market mutual funds Although banks are convenient and safe, money market mutual funds and short-term bond funds are good alternatives to what the bank has to offer. First let's examine money market mutual funds. These can be thought of as a variant of a bank checking account. The main advantage that money market mutual funds offer is higher yields. Money funds invest in short-term, high quality securities Money market mutual funds are investment companies that buy short-term securities like 90-day US Treasury bills, large bank certificates of deposit, and short-term corporate debt called commercial paper. Money market mutual funds must invest in short-term securities so that the average maturity of the portfolio cannot exceed 90 days. Because of these short-term investments, money market mutual funds are virtually immune from the interest rate risk that haunts mutual funds that invest in longer-term bonds. Money fund safety versus bank accounts By law money market mutual funds must invest at least 95 percent of their assets in either US government securities or other securities of the highest credit rating. Thus, money market mutual funds almost can be thought of as being safer than bank deposits. Money market mutual funds do not enjoy the federal deposit insurance that banks have. However, this deposit insurance is not the cure-all that many think that it is. For instance, if a bank folds, the deposits in the bank may be frozen for up to 30 days. As long as your deposit is under $100,000 you eventually should get all of your money back, but that could take months. Also, when a bank fails, you will get your original deposit back, but you may have to give up some of the interest you earned. Why banks are risky without insurance Without the deposit insurance, banks would be riskier places for deposits than money market mutual funds. Banks take most of their deposits and lend the money on either a long-term basis for things like commercial real estate, or lend the money to high risk borrowers like credit card users or auto purchasers. Banks typically keep less than 20 percent of their deposits in their vaults to pay off depositors. If enough depositors want their money back, banks can't call their long-term loans back to fulfill the depositors demands. When this happens, the bank must merge with someone or file for bankruptcy. Unfortunately, this isn't a rare occurrence. In the 1980s over 800 commercial banks and 600 savings and loans filed for bankruptcy. Why money funds are safe Money market mutual funds are less likely to fail because they invest in high-grade, liquid, short-term debt. If lots of fund investors want their money back, the mutual fund simply sells the high-grade securities to the market, and uses the proceeds to pay off customer redemptions. In fact, to date only one money market mutual fund has lost money for its investors, and that was a strange fund that was set up to invest for banks and was closed to the public at large. Mutual funds also provide another safety valve that banks don't. The securities that the mutual fund purchases on behalf of investors are stored with a third-party custodian. This third party helps to prevent the mutual fund management from embezzling or otherwise misusing investor's funds. Invest in US government bond funds Still, if you want ultimate safety, you should consider investing in a so-called US government money market fund. These funds typically place all their investments in securities that are backed by the "full faith and credit" of the US government. Even here, you need to be a little careful. Beware of investing in so-called "government plus" money market funds. Such funds may invest in derivative securities which are backed by US government obligations. Such derivative securities may have little credit risk, but they may have a good deal of interest rate risk, even if they are short-term securities. The American money markets are extremely efficient, and any fund that has a higher than average yield is either run frugally or is taking on extra risks. Be aware of what you're getting. To avoid nasty surprises in this kind of mutual fund, or any mutual fund, make sure to read the fund's prospectus before investing.

JP Morgan Analyst Discusses REIT Debt Levels, Investment Grade Ratings
Mark Streeter, managing director at JP Morgan Chase, joined REIT.com for a video interview during REITWise 2014: NAREIT's Law, Accounting and Finance Conference held in Boca Raton, Fla. Streeter was asked about appropriate debt levels for REITs and how the industry as a whole performs in this area. He noted that since the financial crisis, the REIT industry has been more focused on the metric of debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). "The debt-to-EBITDA metric is more comparable across sectors, and that's been driven in part by the desire by investors and the ratings agencies to really compare REITs to the broader market," Streeter said. He added that the right level of leverage is dependent on the asset class. "You really need to drill down to where the asset's valued on an equity basis" to determine the appropriate amount of leverage that the market valuation can support, Streeter said. Streeter also commented on the merits of obtaining an investment grade rating. "I think most of these REITs are focused on running now with investment grade credit ratings. We're up to 60 names that are actively issuing in the bond market right now and have pursued investment grade credit ratings, and there's still a pipeline of many more names that are looking to tap the market," Streeter observed. "Most REIT CFOs are very focused on having access to public and private capital, secured and unsecured, just like they're focused on having access to public and private equity... I think it's the most prudent strategy to have a rating," Streeter said. "We've seen many, many new names come to the market recently. There's been a whole host of new REITs to the market that have really benefitted from having that access and having that credit," he added. Streeter also said he is trying to keep investors focused on the fact that from a credit perspective, the REIT industry continues to perform well. "The bonds don't default. They're basically worth par. You have very protective covenants. It's a very unique asset class in the investment grade credit market," he pointed out. By Sarah Borchersen-Keto

DoubleLine Capital Celebrates Recent Listing of DoubleLine Opportunistic Credit Fund
DoubleLine Capital LP (NYSE-Listed DBL) visits the NYSE to celebrate the recent initial public offering of the DoubleLine Opportunistic Credit Fund (the "Fund"). The Fund, organized as a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company, began trading on the NYSE on January 27 under the ticker symbol "DBL." The Fund's investment objective is to seek high total investment return by providing a high level of current income and the potential for capital appreciation. In honor of the occasion, Ron Redell, President of DoubleLine Funds, joined by Jeffrey Sherman, Portfolio Manager with DoubleLine Capital LP, rings The Closing BellSM. About DoubleLine Opportunistic Credit Fund The DoubleLine Opportunistic Credit Fund (the "Fund") is a newly organized, non-diversified, closed-end management investment company. The Fund's investment objective is to seek high total investment return by providing a high level of current income and the potential for capital appreciation. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Fund investing involves the risk of principal loss. DoubleLine Capital LP acts as the investment adviser for Fund. As the Fund is newly organized, its shares have no history of operations or public trading. Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value, which may increase investors' risk of loss. This risk may be greater for investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period after the completion of this public offering. There are risks associated with an investment in the Fund. Investors should consider the Fund's investment objective, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus, which contains this and other important information about the Fund, should be read carefully before investing. A copy of the prospectus can be obtained from your broker. An investment in the Fund should not constitute a complete investment program. This document is not an offer to sell securities or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor shall there be any sale or offer of these securities, in any jurisdiction where such sale or offer is not permitted. The Fund is a "non-diversified" investment company and therefore may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a limited number of issuers than funds that are "diversified." Accordingly, the Fund is more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence than a diversified fund might be.

Risk & Performance: Comparing Investment Grade & High Yield Corporate Bonds
Take a closer look at the risk/reward profiles of investment grade and high yield corporate bonds in the current climate with S&P DJI’s J.R. Rieger and Shaun Wurzbach.
How to invest in bonds
How to invest in bonds Bonds - funds vs. individual So now that we've looked at attributes of various bonds and other fixed income investments, let's see how you might go about actually investing in them. First, I'd recommend that you limit your fixed income investing to mutual funds, banks or insurance companies. With the exception of US Treasuries, buying individual bonds is generally not a good idea unless you have at least $50,000 to invest in a variety of bonds. Unless you have that much money to put into bonds, you'll lack the diversification necessary to reduce credit risk to a manageable level. Also, the secondary market in bonds for individuals is not very good, so you're better off sticking with mutual funds. You can, however, buy your own US Treasury bonds. You can buy them directly from the US government at little cost. But I'd stay away from US EE savings bonds. These offer poor yields and you can easily lose up to six months in interest if you aren't careful. EE Savings bonds have minor tax advantages, especially when it comes to paying for college, but the rules are complicated and limited to lower income people. Savings bonds just aren't great investments. Bond market is efficient - like a commodity If you decide to use a bond mutual fund for investing, remember that bond funds offer higher yields than banks, but the bond fund will complicate your taxes. See my tape on mutual funds for more information on fund taxation. Also, when investing in a bond fund, don't pay for a so-called hot manager who charges you high fees and justifies these fees by trying to beat the bond market. Bonds and other fixed income investments are largely commodity products. Consider, for example, the US Treasury market. The Treasury market is huge, and all the securities have the same, excellent credit rating. There's no reason to pay high fees for a US Treasury bond fund, yet some funds charge their investors over 2 percent in fees. These investors are simply wasting their money. With US Treasury bonds currently yielding about 7 percent, these investors are giving up almost a third of their income. They could just as easily shift to a US Treasury bond fund that has an expense ratio of only 0.3 percent. Watch out for temporary fee waivers However, especially with money market mutual funds, you need to be careful that the fund's current high yield isn't the product of a temporary fee waiver. To attract new investors, many funds waive their management fees for six months or so. This raises their reported yield, and new money pours in. After the fund has plenty of new investors, the fund raises its fees again back to its old levels. Maybe pay more for junk bond managers About the only time you might want to pay extra for a bond fund manager is in the area of junk bonds. Most investment grade bonds already are rated by independent rating agencies like Moody's or Standard & Poors, so it's doubtful that your bond fund manager can add value by picking out the good credit risks from the bad ones. But junk bond investing is trickier. Here it may pay to hire fund analysts who will dig deeply to discover a company's true ability to pay off its debt. In this case, it's more like trying to find a good stock. Still, you shouldn't pay more than 1 percent of assets to find a good junk bond fund. Copyright 1997 by David Luhman

Third Friday Total Return Fund, one of the best performing hedge funds on a risk-adjusted basis, ...
For 20 years, Michael Lewitt has managed billions of dollars for institutions like Texas Teachers, LA County Employee Retirement, and large hedge funds like Omega Advisers. He also wrote “The Death Of Capital: How Creative Policy Can Restore Stability” (John Wiley & Sons) and is the Editor & Publisher of The Credit Strategist, a monthly newsletter that has focused on the global economy and financial market since 2001. It was one of the few publications to predict the 2001 and 2008 credit crises. Since Sept. 2012 Michael is the general partner of The Third Friday Total Return Fund, one of the best performing hedge funds in 2015 on a risk-adjusted basis: While the fund started in 2007, the strategy started 10 years before that, meaning that the fund’s underlying options strategy has been developed and perfected over 20 years through many difficult markets Since fund inception in May 2007, net annualized return +7.86 % compares favorably against +2.75% for the HFRI Composite Hedge Fund Index and annualized total return of +6.05% for the S&P 500. In 2015, The Third Friday Total Return Fund earned a net return of +8.26 % versus -0.85% for the HFRI Fund Weighted Composite Hedge Fund Index and +1.38% total return for the S&P 500. The fund had only only two negative months (one by only -0.02%) while the S&P 500 was negative in 6 of the 12 months of the year. In Jan. 2016, the fund was up +0.23%. Fund uses no leverage and invests its collateral in Treasuries, cash, and a diversified short-to-intermediate portfolio of municipal and corporate bonds. In 2015, cash positions were well over 50% throughout the year. In this Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE video, Michael Lewitt explains what attracted him - a veteran with almost 30 years in the industry having managed billions in credit funds - to take over the general partnership of Third Friday. By selling at the money straddles of S&P index and hedging them by buying out of the money puts and calls, the fund is truly market-neutral and protects capital with several “rings of defence” against normal and outsized market moves. What’s interesting about the strategy is that it extracts returns from volatility and time value in options - characteristics that are always present in markets. The fund also benefits from a loss mitigation mechanism: Its recovery from the one seriously negative month in 2015 (-3.14% in August) demonstrates how the strategy is designed to recover from losses by taking advantage of the rising options premiums that naturally follow bad months to generate higher returns in the subsequent months. Straddles on the S&P 500 index are among the most liquid instruments in the world. Accordingly, the fund can accommodate significant growth without any diminution in liquidity or return. Hear Michael also speak about: How will the strategy do if markets plunge 1000 points in one day? The role of discipline Liquidity profile and capacity. Current investor base and available fund vehicles Michael Lewitt started his career 1987 at Drexel Burnham Lambert. He was recognized in the Financial Times as having been one of the few investors and strategists to forecast the financial crisis of 2008, and also predicted the credit crisis of 2001-2002. In 1991 Michael co-founded and served as President of Harch Capital Management (HCM). From 1991-2001 he was co-lead portfolio manager and from 2001-2011 lead portfolio manager for billions of dollars of below investment grade corporate credit strategies (including hedge funds, CDOs and separate accounts) for institutional and individual clients. Michael successfully invested on both the long and short sides of the debt markets during this period. He also functioned as chief legal and compliance officer of the firm. Over his 20 years at HCM, Michael led an investment team that generated consistent market-beating returns. Third Friday relies on execution of a strategy that has been developed and perfected over the last 20 years through many difficult markets. The initial strategy was created in the 1990s and was run initially as a family partnership and operated as such for several years until Michael Lewitt joined the fund in November 2012 to grow it into an institutional hedge fund.

Why long/short credit?
Tactical credit strategies, such as the WHV/Acuity Tactical Credit Long/Short Fund, are becoming increasingly attractive for their potential to generate yield and reduce volatility in the latent fixed income universe. Unconstrained by any one asset class or style of investing, their dynamic nature allows them to move in and out of asset classes and capital structures to take advantage of the opportunity set that is offered by the market. Further, the ability to move long and/or short may offer additional advantages for credit, including the potential to insulate a portfolio in down markets.

Top 3 Investment-Grade Corporate Bond ETFs
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Depending on your stage of life or the asset allocation in your portfolio, bonds may be a solid choice to provide fixed-income stability and a hedge against more risky equity investments. (See also: 6 Asset Allocation Strategies That Work.) Interest rates have been historically low for many years, making the gold standard, U.S. treasuries, less attractive. That's where investment-grade corporate bonds come in. Corporate bonds offer significantly higher yield in many cases, without an equally significant bump in risk. Yes, corporations do go bankrupt on rare occasions, but investment-grade bonds focus on companies with excellent credit ratings and very low risk of default. (See also: How to Invest in Corporate Bonds.) The problem is that picking institutional bonds is a skill best left to experts, and their fees can easily gobble up gains. Fortunately, there are a number of high-quality investment-grade corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are comparatively inexpensive and highly liquid. You also avoid the market-timing mistakes that so commonly befall amateur investors. Most investors should view bonds and bond ETFs as a strategic asset – a buy-and-hold investment that serves a specific purpose in their overall asset allocation. (See also: Evaluating Bond Funds: Keep It Simple.) If you're looking for a few good corporate bond options to round out your portfolio, here are a few ETFs that rise above their peers. All year-to-date (YTD) performance figures are based on the period of Jan. 1, 2017, through July 14, 2017, unless otherwise noted. Funds were selected on the basis of a combination of assets under management (AUM) and overall performance. All figures are as of July 15, 2017. iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) Issuer: BlackRock Assets Under Management: $36 billion YTD Performance: 4.52% Expense Ratio: 0.15% This is the largest of the corporate bond ETFs and has returned nearly 5.56% since its inception in 2002. The fund tracks the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, investing roughly 90% of its assets into securities in the index, with the balance in cash funds. There are currently 1,691 holdings, heavily tilted toward the banking and consumer non-cyclical sectors. Top issuers include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS). LQD's low expense ratio and solid performance figures make it an attractive choice. One-year, three-year and five-year returns are 0.28%, 3.72% and 3.68%, respectively. (See also: Don't Doubt the Data: Bond ETFs Will Keep Growing.) Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH) Issuer: Vanguard Assets Under Management: $19.93 billion YTD Performance: 1.90% Expense Ratio: 0.07% Short-term bonds generally mature within one to five years, and yields are lower than those of their longer-term cousins. This fund tracks the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Corporate Bond Index and invests about 80% of its assets into securities on the benchmark index.

Money and Finance: Crash Course Economics #11
So, we've been putting off a kind of basic question here. What is money? What is currency? How are the two different. Well, not to give away too much, but money has a few basic functions. It acts as a store of value, a medium of exchange, and as a unit of account. Money isn't just bills and coins. It can be anything that meets these three criteria. In US prisons, apparently, pouches of Mackerel are currency. Yes, mackerel the fish. Paper and coins work as money because they're backed by the government, which is an advantage over mackerel. So, once you've got money, you need finance. We'll talk about borrowing, lending, interest, and stocks and bonds. Also, this episode features a giant zucchini, which Adriene grew in her garden. So that's cool.

February’s higher than expected wage data highlighted concerns on both the level of inflation as well as the Fed’s reaction function. This translated into both higher yields and higher volatility. Yields in the US rose significantly, making the US one of the worst performing bond markets. Performance within spread sectors was mixed as investment grade corporate credit and agency mortgages posted negative excess returns while local Emerging Markets posted positive excess returns. The Fund was positioned well to navigate this volatility in markets and outperformed its benchmark during the quarter. A combination of yield curve, country and currency positioning led much of the outperformance. The Fund benefited from having a lower duration exposure than the index in places like the US, UK and Canada, where yields were rising. We also benefited from overweight positions in Portugal, Spain and South Africa, where yields fell during the quarter. The Fund is well positioned to capitalize on opportunities if volatility persists in markets. On a sector basis, we continue to maintain overweight positions in Emerging Market Debt, inflation-linked bonds and investment grade corporate bonds. The overweights are offset by underweight positions in Developed market sovereigns and US agency mortgage backed securities. While the Fund has been underweight duration relative to the index, we have been looking for opportunities to cover some of that short position as rates have risen closer to fair value. The Fund’s currency strategy is centered on a core short US dollar position. However, we also see value in a number of relative value currency pairs like being long Scandinavian currencies against the Euro and being long the Japanese Yen vs. other Asian currencies. Going forward, we think headwinds are likely to persist for fixed income markets. A renormalization of monetary policy in the US, UK and Canada is likely to continue over the next few quarters. It is important to note, though, that the pace of that renormalization is likely to be quite slow and while rates will be rising from current levels, they will still remain low on a historical basis. Despite the net decline in US equity prices and rise in volatility, financial conditions remain accommodative. This is an environment which we think will reward active managers like ourselves, offering many relative value opportunities within countries and sectors.

Warren Buffett on the Financial & Housing Crisis and Credit Rating Agencies (2010)
A credit rating agency (CRA) is a company that assigns credit ratings for issuers of certain types of debt obligations as well as the debt instruments themselves. In some cases, the servicers of the underlying debt are also given ratings. More on Buffett: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=22f3a19f1003df6e04ad734879f32fb7&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=warren%20buffett In most cases, the issuers of securities are companies, special purpose entities, state and local governments, non-profit organizations, or national governments issuing debt-like securities (i.e., bonds) that can be traded on a secondary market. A credit rating for an issuer takes into consideration the issuer's credit worthiness (i.e., its ability to pay back a loan), and affects the interest rate applied to the particular security being issued. The value of such security ratings has been widely questioned after the 2007--09 financial crisis. In 2003, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission submitted a report to Congress detailing plans to launch an investigation into the anti-competitive practices of credit rating agencies and issues including conflicts of interest. More recently, ratings downgrades during the European sovereign debt crisis of 2010--11 have drawn criticism from the EU and individual countries. A company that issues credit scores for individual credit-worthiness is generally called a credit bureau (US) or consumer credit reporting agency (UK). Credit rating agencies have been subject to the following criticisms: Credit rating agencies do not downgrade companies promptly enough. For example, Enron's rating remained at investment grade four days before the company went bankrupt, despite the fact that credit rating agencies had been aware of the company's problems for months. Or, for example, Moody's gave Freddie Mac's preferred stock the top rating until Warren Buffett talked about Freddie on CNBC and on the next day Moody's downgraded Freddie to one tick above junk bonds. Some empirical studies have documented that yield spreads of corporate bonds start to expand as credit quality deteriorates but before a rating downgrade, implying that the market often leads a downgrade and questioning the informational value of credit ratings. This has led to suggestions that, rather than rely on CRA ratings in financial regulation, financial regulators should instead require banks, broker-dealers and insurance firms (among others) to use credit spreads when calculating the risk in their portfolio. Large corporate rating agencies have been criticized for having too familiar a relationship with company management, possibly opening themselves to undue influence or the vulnerability of being misled. These agencies meet frequently in person with the management of many companies, and advise on actions the company should take to maintain a certain rating. Furthermore, because information about ratings changes from the larger CRAs can spread so quickly (by word of mouth, email, etc.), the larger CRAs charge debt issuers, rather than investors, for their ratings. This has led to accusations that these CRAs are plagued by conflicts of interest that might inhibit them from providing accurate and honest ratings. At the same time, more generally, the largest agencies (Moody's and Standard & Poor's) are often seen as promoting a narrow-minded focus on credit ratings, possibly at the expense of employees, the environment, or long-term research and development. These accusations are not entirely consistent: on one hand, the larger CRAs are accused of being too cozy with the companies they rate, and on the other hand they are accused of being too focused on a company's "bottom line" and unwilling to listen to a company's explanations for its actions. While often accused of being too close to company management of their existing clients, CRAs have also been accused of engaging in heavy-handed "blackmail" tactics in order to solicit business from new clients, and lowering ratings for those firms . For instance, Moody's published an "unsolicited" rating of Hannover Re, with a subsequent letter to the insurance firm indicating that "it looked forward to the day Hannover would be willing to pay". When Hannover management refused, Moody's continued to give Hannover Re ratings, which were downgraded over successive years, all while making payment requests that the insurer rebuffed. In 2004, Moody's cut Hannover's debt to junk status, and even though the insurer's other rating agencies gave it strong marks, shareholders were shocked by the downgrade and Hannover lost $175 million USD in market capitalization. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Credit_rating_agency

The Types of Bond Funds We Buy
Michael talks about the Types of Bond Funds we buy here at Yardley Wealth Management. Transcript: What type of bond funds do we buy for our clients? We buy bonds for specific purposes, the funds that we buy are short and intermediate term, investment grade and in tax qualified accounts, global bonds. In taxable accounts we will often buy short and intermediate investment grade municipal bonds. We buy the bonds that we do, which are high quality and shorter duration bonds, because those are the bonds people look to buy when the stock market is doing poorly and people are afraid to buy stocks. So when you hear the so called "Flight to Quality" which is when people get nervous about stocks and start buying treasuries or high quality muni's, those are the bonds we buy. The funds we buy buy those bonds and the reason we do that is so that when our clients portfolios suffer because the stocks are going down the bond funds would be going up. So the overall portfolio value is not as adversely affected as if we just had normal bonds or long term bonds or junk bonds. We take a very focused approach that we are going to but short and intermediate term bonds on funds that are going to be globally diversified and with that global diversification comes buying hedge against currency changes. So we don't want our bond funds to go up and down based on how the Euro or the dollar and Yen are doing. So the funds pay a very small amount of money and hedge the currencies so that the returns we get are the returns we would get from the bonds themselves not from the changes in currencies. Just a recap, we really prefer buying bond funds for our clients not individual bonds and the funds we buy are short and intermediate term, they are globally diversified when we can do it and they are of the highest quality. We don't buy junk bonds or we don't buy the extended credit bonds we just buy the ones that are the highest. Thats it, thanks!

Petrobras Will Be Turned Around Says Eaton Vance Fund Manager
Petrobras is a scandal-ridden company, but the oil giant is also a real asset to Brazil, said Kathleen Gaffney, portfolio manager for the Eaton Vance Bond Fund. Gaffney added that Brazil could potentially lose its investment grade credit rating in the next two years, so they realize the time is now to deal with corruption and fixing Petrobras will be a priority. She said the fund does not hedge the currency because they are long term investors and they plan to hold the energy bonds they picked up during the sell-off in the fourth quarter of 2014. Finally, Gaffney said a Fed tightening, which she expects to be pushed out until later this year, will hurt emerging markets selectively.

Moody's decision on SA's credit rating - Zuzana Brixiova
The Rand hit a one month high today following the decision of credit rating agency, Moody's, not to downgrade South Africa. South Africa was hit by a series of downgrades last year which means that S and P and Fitch - the other major rating agencies - rate South Africa as junk when it comes to the sovereign or 'foreign currency' rating. They also rate South African bonds denominated in Rand - which are the majority bonds that the government uses to raise funds - as junk. But Moody's as you can see rates South Africa in investment grade. Last year it took a wait and see stance and - given its note on Friday - the rating agency is happy with the budget and the political changes in South Africa. Markets are cheering the fact that Moody's not only kept its rate unchanged but also changed the outlook from negative to stable. That means we are no longer likely to be downgraded the next time around. For more news, visit: sabcnews.com

Mr. Adrangi is a leading expert on Chinese stock scams and has shared in-depth research with the investment community on fraudulent U.S.-listed Chinese companies. It's not only Sino-Forest Beginning in 2004 and particularly from 2006-2009, more than 400 Chinese companies went public in the U.S. through reverse mergers, avoiding the costs and rigorous due diligence involved with registering in the mainland or Hong Kong. Throughout 2010 and 2011, many U.S.-listed Chinese reverse mergers were exposed as frauds, leading to stock halts, auditor resignations and a general decline in the sector. Red flags at U.S.-listed Chinese companies include inflated margins, low-quality auditors, high CFO and auditor turnover, sham acquisitions, related party transactions, etc. Kerrisdale published research reports on numerous frauds, and benefited as the Bloomberg Chinese Reverse Merger Index (a proxy for this group) fell more than 60% during 2011. Since inception in July 2009, Kerrisdale Partners LP has been ranked among the top performing hedge funds, making most of its money on the opportunistic book and on the short side. Learn from Sahm in this fascinating Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE interview how brazen fraudsters recklessly set up phony firms and produce false reports. However, such stock scams can also occur in non-Chinese companies, particularly in sectors that lend themselves to "stories", such as tech, biotech, metals & mining, oil & gas, etc. Prior to founding Karrisdale Capital Management, Sahm Adrangi was an investment analyst at Longacre Fund Management where he was doing investment research both on Longacre's flagship distressed debt credit fund and an equity fund. Prior to Longacre, Mr. Adrangi worked in the bankruptcy restructuring group at Chanin Capital Partners. Prior to Chanin, he worked in the leveraged finance investment banking group of Deutsche Bank.
