A nasty close is in store for a lousy month for high yield (HYG -1%) as it loses some appeal amid now-visible Treasury rates. The yield spread over Treasurys was nearly 500 bps a year ago, but just 400 now. Through yesterday, investors have pulled about $1.5B from HYG and JNK according to IndexUniverse. Not falling as far as the index funds and actually seeing inflows this month is AdvisorShares' actively-managed high yield ETF (HYLD).
