JP Morgan Says You Should Flee into Bonds

JP Morgan Says You Should Flee into Bonds

(New York)

Where to put one's money in 2019? That is the difficult question every investor must face at the moment. For a long time "TINA", or "there is no alternative", was the mantra which kept guiding capital into stocks alongside miniscule yields. Now with rates and yields rising and stocks having seen big losses, where should investors turn? The reality is that bonds seem likely to outperform stocks next year, at least according to JP Morgan. The bank thinks EM debt is likely to have a good year as once the Fed stops tightening the Dollar will likely weaken, giving a boost to EM assets.

FINSUM : In our view, a lot of damage has already been done to stocks and there are now some very interesting buys. Furthermore, short-term debt has seen yields rise high enough that you can get decent returns without a lot of interest rate risk.
