At the request of so many investment advisors, my friends at Riskalyze share the big trends in the assets going into and coming out of advisor portfolios every week. The underlying data is aggregated from hundreds of thousands of client accounts across the $120 billion and counting that advisors manage on the Riskalyze platform*. I hope we can uncover interesting trends for you each week…
November 27th – December 3rd
- US Growth (IJK, IJT, IVW, VBK)
- Floating Rate (LFRAX, OOSAX)
- US Equity (SPY, QQQ)
Losers (advisor flows FROM these investments increased substantially):
- Silver (SLV)
- Utilities (XLU)
- Doubleline Total Return (DLTNX)
Josh here – well, it didn’t take much other than a spike in treasury yields and a 3% S&P 500 rally to convince us all that there’s a “new paradigm” now at hand and we’re all about to get laid. At least, that seems to be the prevailing sentiment these days in the investment markets. Allocations are being undertaken as though 4% GDP growth and rising rates to accompany that economic growth are a fait accompli. I’m not mad, just saying.
Riskalyze CIO Mike McDaniel tells us that “Advisor use of US Growth and US Equities ratcheted up big week over week with 8 of the top 10 winners falling into US equity category(s). Advisor use of SLV and XLU continued to decline week over week by over 7%.”
So, we’re buying the stuff that grows and selling the stuff that yields. Got it. Full speed ahead!
It’s also interesting to see Jeff Gundlach (DoubleLine Total Return) getting redeemed a bit, but this could have more to do with rebalancing – he’s largely gotten both the election and the post-election rate picture right, after all.
