Investment Insights Podcast – Crisis in High-Yield Markets?

miller_podcast_graphicBill Miller, Chief Investment Officer

On this week’s podcast (recorded December 11, 2015), we look at Third Avenue’s high-yield fund collapse and its potential impact on the market as a whole. This week we lead with what we don’t like:

What we don’t like: Investor fear has risen with the closure of the Third Avenue Focused Credit Fund; belief now that there are wider problems in the high-yield markets; issues and pressure stem from the energy sector as oil prices have fallen a lot; larger fear that this will spread to the economy as a whole; investors will be looking across all sectors for potential problems

What we like: We tend to believe this is more contained and hopeful that there will be better opportunities in the high-yield space in the near future;

What we’re doing about it: Continue to maintain within high-yield while keeping an eye on investor sentiment
