U.S. fund investors pull most cash from 'junk' in two months: Lipper

by Trevor Hunnicutt

U.S. fund investors pulled $3.1 billion from high-yield “junk” bonds during the latest week.

Stocks and high-yield bonds often trade in sympathy with one another, and high-yield bonds are sometimes seen as predicting what stocks will do next.

The bonds’ decline comes even as other risky assets, including global stocks, have been thriving this year.

JNK has been below its 200-day moving average every day but one since Nov 1st.

Equities attracting $9.1 billion, taxable bonds taking in $2.5 billion and municipal bond funds reeling in $1.2 billion.

Investors withdraw record $23.9 billion from U.S.-based stock funds: Lipper

by Trevor Hunnicutt

U.S. fund investors sucked $23.9 billion out of the stock market during the latest week, marking the largest withdrawals from those funds on record.

Stock ETF outflows were $21 billion, compared with modest mutual fund withdrawals of $3 billion, according to Lipper.

By comparison, those mutual funds lost $236 billion for the week just from negative performance.

Technology stock funds’ $1.1 billion outflow during the most recent week marked the largest withdrawals since September 2016.

Financial sector funds, which are seen profiting from rising rates by boosting lending, took in $861 million.

Treasury fund inflows of $2 billion were the largest since September, Lipper said, though high-yield junk fund outflows rose to $2.7 billion.

Equity holdings in biggest one-month fall in two-years: BAML survey

by Claire Milhench

Investors’ allocation to equities fell to a net 43 percent overweight from a net 55 percent overweight, the largest one-month decline since February 2016.

BAML said this 12 percentage point drop was short of the 16 percentage point monthly fall required to signal that a risk asset rout was complete.

Noted a record 20 percentage point jump in the number of investors taking out protection against a sharp fall in equity markets in the next three months, to a net minus 30 percent in February.

Cash levels rose to 4.7 percent from 4.4 percent.

Risks:-
1. Inflation-induced bond crash
2. Policy mistake by the Fed or the European Central Bank
3. Global economy is in a “late cycle” phase,

Allocation to emerging market equities held at a net 41 percent overweight.

February may set a record for U.S. stock outflows amid volatility resurgence

By Ryan Vlastelica

The outflows represent about 0.5% of total U.S. stock fund assets: ICI

About $49.5 billion were pulled from U.S. stock funds in the first three weeks of February.

That represents the largest outflows for the category on record in terms of dollar value, surpassing a previous peak of $45 billion in July 2002.

Nearly $50 billion in redemptions represented a mere 0.5% of the $10 trillion in total assets currently held in domestic stock funds (including both mutual funds and exchange-traded funds).

Global funds cut stock exposure to four-month low amid trade war fears

by Claire Milhench

Investors cut their equity holdings by almost 1 percentage point to 48.1 percent of global balanced portfolios — the lowest level since November — while raising bond holdings by 2.3 percentage points to 39.3 percent.

Within equity portfolios, managers cut their U.S. exposure to 38 percent, the lowest since April 2016.

Investors cut their euro zone equity holdings slightly to 19.9 percent, but while some investors said growth might be slowing, with the stronger euro hampering export growth, it would not fall sharply.
