ILB vs. ETF Alternatives
The Global Advantage Inflation-Linked Bond Strategy Fund (ticker: ILB) is an actively-managed exchange-traded fund comprised of primarily high-quality inflation-linked bonds that span developed and emerging markets. The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its assets in inflation-linked bonds, which are fixed income securities tied to the consumer price index of a given country or region, and are designed to provide protection from inflation. The fund is benchmarked to both the GDP-weighted Global Advantage Inflation-Linked Bond Index and the Barclays Capital Universal Government Inflation-Linked Bond Index. The fund may not use options, futures or swaps.

- Expectations of U.S. and euro zone break-even rates seem to be heading in opposite directions, as investors wager on opposing consumer price outlooks. The break-even rates, as measured by the difference between yields on 10-year nominal Treasury notes and TIPs, are at about 2.3% in the U.S. This greatly differs in the euro zone, where Germany reports a rate of 1.3%.
- TIPs are expected to gain in popularity over the next year, as break-evens expect to rise in par with U.S. inflation. However, the euro zone is currently dealing with a falling inflation rate. Despite the European Central Bank instituting a 2% inflation mandate, annual inflation in the euro zone was only 0.5% in May.

- "The default rate is non-existent," he says, agreeing that fundamentals in high-yield look good. "Instead of a default cycle, we've had a refinance cycle." The issue, however, is valuation. At the end of 2013, the 30-year Treasury yielded about 4%, while BB corporates "unbelievably" yielded just 4.5% - a "remarkably low incremental yield."
- His feelings about overvaluation extend to the investment grade corporate market (LQD) as well.
- Most curious to Gundlach is how universally the long bond is hated at 4%, while junk yielding 4.5% gets so much love.
- Besides Treasurys, Gundlach sees value in emerging market bonds. The risk is in the currency, but this can be eliminated by buying dollar-denominated paper.
