Fixed-income may not be being given away as it was in 2010, but there's still value, says Jeff Gundlach, scoffing at talk of a bond bubble. "Raise your hand" if you own Treasurys for yourself or a client, he asked a room full of advisors (none went up). Bonds are not "over-owned" in the U.S., he says, showing cash and fixed income make up  a higher percentage of household financial assets in other countries.

    The only way for people to be drawn to fixed income is where they fear the economy will be flat or negative in the future, I don't think in the US we are there yet.

    "Over-owned" is a term of questionable utility. More useful is to consider that the yield on a 3-year treasury note is about one-sixth the annual rate of inflation.

    If you can't help but worry about it you shouldn't be in it. Better yet, have something in everything so you might feel good about something and worry about something at the same time. Ever worry about something that didn't happen? That's why you need something to worry about, it may not happen. You may be wrong, never happen, right?
