Gundlach cuts DoubleLline's high-yield holdings to just 3%

"There's no way for prices to go up at this point," says Jeff Gundlach of the junk bond market. The average junk bond yields just 5.3% and trades above 104 cents on the dollar, he says, higher than the 103 level at which many bonds can be called by their issuers.

“If a bond is priced to call, and rates rise, it might not get called. People may think they own a short-term portfolio but if interest rates rise it might turn into a 10-year bond instead. It would also roll up the yield curve ... This could be a debacle."

I’m not worried as much about interest rate risk and credit risk ... I’m worried more about liquidity risk and naively owned positions."
