Bill Gross (BOND) is "lightening positions" in MBS after they've been a big winner for his funds this year (interesting: the MBB has actually declined since the Fed began QE∞). He's also cutting back on his holdings of corporate paper (LQD). Expecting the Fed to eventually produce higher inflation, he's added to his holdings of TIPS (TIP), while cutting back on non-inflation protected Treasurys.
