Bonds, Bonds, Bonds

Recommended Posts


A stable part of a diversified portfolio.

This I agree with, but to buy after a 29 year bull market in the asset class represents a huge risk IMO.

There is no point buying an asset class that is highly, highly overvalued simply because it diversifies the other assets that you may own. Mean reversion in bond prices downwards must occur soon. No bubble can be held up indefinately.

So the question;

What bond subclasses or funds offer value?

I could possibly be tempted into Emerging Market debt in good currencies (Singapore, Malaysian, Aus, Canadian, etc) or large cap corporate debt that offered some form of inflation protection.

Western government, No thank you.

So where if any value is there in bonds in 2011 and for the next inflationary two decades?
