Jeffrey Gundlach cautious on High Yield, also sees Munis 15-20% lower
Jeff Gundlach, a well known bond manager and DoubleLine Capital CEO, was on CNBC today talking about munis and high yield, two bond asset classes that have been moving in different directions of late. He was cautious on both classes saying that the yields in high yield were priced for low default rates and did not adequately compensate for high volatility. He doesn’t think high-yield is about to tank, but he is still cautious on the asset class. On munis, Gundlach said that he is "agnostic" a potential crash. Nevertheless, he believes "the fundamentals are bad" and sees munis going "at least 15 to 20%" lower.
