    • As of the end of last month, low volatility ETFs have seen a full $13B of inflows this year, and over the last 12 months, the MSCI World Minimum Volatility Index has surged 13.3% vs. a 0.5% decline for the MSCI World Index.
    • Thanks to pricier valuations for low vol names, SSgA head of research Dave Mazza suggests the next 12 months, not to mention the next three to five years, won't be as favorable. If you're buying low vol to help smooth out your portfolio's volatility for the long-term, that's fine, he says, but if you're looking for better returns than a broader index, you'll be disappointed.
    • Commonwealth Financial Networks portfolio manager Peter Essele: "Every dollar that moves in [to low volatility] is becoming more and more exposed to overweighted securities that are trading well above long-term averages."

    • "There are a lot of dumb ideas now masquerading as smart beta," says Rob Arnott. "My fear is that a potential crash that we hypothesized—in a few overvalued ‘smart beta’ strategies—may make the ‘smart beta’ label a subject of future jokes, and a chapter in the [Chartered Financial Analyst] program."
    • Smart-beta ETFs have received record inflows over the past year, and the vast majority of new ETFs launched this year have been smart-beta products, according to ETFGI.
    • Low-volatility ETFs have garnered $14.32B YTD, while value-oriented strategies have received $6.83B, and dividend-oriented $3.09B.
    • Arnott: "Many of the most popular new factors and strategies have succeeded solely because they have become more and more expensive ... If valuations were to revert back to their historical levels, these recently popular strategies can bring terrible performance."

    • That the valuations on these popular names are stretched isn't new news, but, putting numbers on it, JPMorgan's Dubravko Lakos-Bujas says prices are 30% above levels justified by profitability, and 10% above fair value based dividend growth.
    • This can be resolved in one of two ways, he says: Either momentum stocks snap back, causing low-vol to lag, or the whole market turns lower. Either way, investors in USMV or SPLV, to name two, should take caution.

    • The iShares MSCI USA Minimum Volatility ETF (NYSEARCA:USMV) is this year's most popular stock ETF, garnering $2.8B of inflows.
    • “A lot of people don’t believe in the rally,” says Pravit Chintawongvanich, from Macro Risk Advisors. "Lw volatility stocks are going to be things like utilities, consumer staples, telecoms, real estate investment trusts -- sectors that have outperformed."
    • Checking the scorecard, USMV is higher by 1.8% this year, outperforming the S&P 500 410 basis points. On a year-over-year basis, USMV is doing better by about 760 basis points.

    • The SocGen strategist says the West is about to be hit by a wave of deflation from emerging market economies and that central banks were unaware of the disaster about to hit them.
    • “I realize most people think I am talking utter garbage but I’m used to that. And maybe I am! But the truth will come out in the next recession which may be pretty close now,” Edwards says.
    • “The previous bear market low was in March 2009 when the S&P reached 666. I think we’ll go below that within this bear market.
    • “Developments in the global economy will push the U.S. back into recession. The financial crisis will reawaken. It will be every bit as bad as in 2008-09 and it will turn very ugly indeed.
    • “Emerging market currencies are still in freefall. The U.S. corporate sector is being crushed by the appreciation of the dollar.
    • He says the U.S. economy is in far worse shape than the Fed realizes: “We have seen massive credit expansion in the U.S. This is not for real economic activity; it is borrowing to finance share buybacks.”
    • Edwards attacked the “incredible conceit” of central bankers, who had failed to learn the lessons of the housing bubble that led to the financial crisis and slump of 2008-09. “They didn’t understand the system then and they don’t understand how they are screwing up again. Deflation is upon us and the central banks can’t see it.”
    • Note: Edwards's "Ice Age" thesis goes back to Aug. 2008, and was reiterated in Dec. 2009, Sept. 2011, and May 2012.

    • Volatility in the PowerShares S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (NYSEARCA:SPLV) has been higher than the S&P 500 each day since Feb. 27, according to Bloomberg, with the gap peaking at 244 basis points on March 18 - the widest since the ETF opened for business in 2011.
    • “There’s no guarantee that the name of an ETF, the label, means it’s going to perform the way it’s advertised,” says Morningstar's Michael Rawson. “Investors need to know there’s no magic formula.”
    • The SPLV holds the 100 stocks in the S&P 500 which have fluctuated the least over the prior 12 months. One reason for the high volatility of late, says Rawson, could be energy stocks - the SPLV owns none vs. the S&P's 8.24% weighting, and volatility in the energy names tumbled lower in March.
