S3 E1: Maybe It’s Different This Time

Channel 11 host and DoubleLine Portfolio Manager Ken Shinoda welcomes Graham Hopper, head of the firm’s Relationship Management, Advisor Group, to talk about what’s going on in the markets, themes to follow in 2022 and what’s on the mind of DoubleLine clients in a period of tightening Federal Reserve policy. They begin with a look at back at the topics discussed in 2021 (1:15) before turning to factors that might impact the new year with an eye on sources of return in fixed income, equities and alternatives such as private debt and commodities (3:40). Mr. Hopper quotes a client’s term, “benchmark hell,” to describe the challenge of pursuing returns in an environment overshadowed by the S&P 500’s performance. Subjects tackled include inflation (10:38), market expectation for rate hikes (19:40), keeping short duration (27:13), historic response to the Fed hiking rates (30:58), what is the level of the 10-year Treasury that cracks equities (47:40) and value versus growth in equities (54:15), among other topics.
