DoubleLine Deputy CIO, Jeffrey Sherman shares with CNBC’s Sara Eisen and Carl Quintanilla his strategy for fixed income with a balanced portfolio offsetting the risks of higher-yielding credit with longer-dated Treasuries. He adds this is not a time to add to credit and if you don't own enough duration, it is an attractive entry point. Moving to the economy, Mr. Sherman notes the uptick in delinquencies in consumer loans (credit cards, autos and marketplace loans) and even some lower FICO mortgages suggesting more pressure on the so-far resilient consumer.
