The Bond Report 4.19.10 - (courtesy of LB)

A weak day in fixed income across the board as bonds sold off a little in the afternoon and equities rallied as carry trades recovered from last weeks' Greece/Goldman shock. Vanguard put out an interesting note today regarding the Bear Flattener and warning investors that holding the Short End into a tighter FED might result in Investor Pain.

Hard to see today's trade as anything more than a little profit taking by traders on the right side of last week's action, or perhaps this was simply the result of EVIL HEDGERS like LB.

Corpies: LQD -0.25%; AGG -0.18%; JNK -0.43%; HYG -0.19%;
Govies: TLT -0.25%; IEI -0.21%; TIP -0.24%

We retained our EVIL HEDGE position on the long end but otherwise did nothing.

In summary:

If you're the BLACK LAB (into a tighter FED)...

 And LB is too much of a gentleman to say (so CV will say it for him)... "Macro Man... you're STILL blowing those pretty BUBBLES"...

Recovery Tilting to V-Shape as Profits Prompts Growth Revision


"The odds that the U.S. will relapse into recession have fallen to 15 percent from 25 percent at the start of year, thanks in part to rising profits, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s in West Chester, Pennsylvania."

The expansion will feed back into corporate earnings and pave the way for a further rally in the stock market, LaVorgna said.

“Businesses, broadly speaking, have the financial firepower to go out and invest and hire,” Zandi said.

"Now Janet Yellen, who is said to be President Barack Obama’s pick to be the next Fed vice chair, is also more positive about the outlook.

“It’s fair to say that my own thinking has recently turned a corner, and I am becoming more and more confident that the economy is on the right track,” Yellen, who is currently president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, said in an April 15 speech.


So there you have it people... Get out there tomorrow and BUY AS MANY STOCKS AS YOU CAN FIND... ON MARGIN
