WSJ Warns Of Bond Bubble

News summary by MFWire's editors

Just when mutual fund investors were starting to venture back in equity waters, market jitters are once again sending them fleeing to bond funds. That flight has some bond managers talking about a bond bubble, reports the Tuesday WSJ Fund Track column.

Among the PMs quoted are Bill Eigen, manager of the J.P. Morgan Strategic income Opportunities Fund (JSOAX), who tells the paper that: "People are conditioned to push the 'fixed-income' button [in times of trouble] because for nearly 30 years you didn't have to do anything to make money."

Also quoted is James Swanson, chief investment strategist at MFS Investment Management and Tom Atteberry, co-manager of FPA New Income Fund (FPNIX).

The article serves as a basic reminder to investors that bond prices fall when yields rise.
