Portfolio Intelligence podcast: the Fed holds the key to the economic cycle

Co-Chief Investment Strategists Emily R. Roland, CIMA, and Matthew D. Miskin, CFA, discuss what the U.S. Federal Reserve’s (Fed’s) current outlook for inflation and growth mean for the maturity of the current economic cycle.

Read bio

After the recent rise in interest rates and a $1.9 trillion stimulus package, investors are looking for clues when the Fed might begin to tighten. However, at the March meeting, the Fed signaled it was willing to let inflation run over 2%, which pushed back expectations of a potential rate hike. The investment strategists explain what this could mean for both equity and fixed-income portfolios.

“As we head into the back half of the year, we could start to see things sort of return to normal, and that this supercharged backdrop starts to sort of settle in a little bit. And at that time we think that fundamentals rather than macroeconomic factors like inflation and rates are actually going to come into the spotlight a little bit more.”—Emily R. Roland, CIMA, Co-Chief Investment Strategist, John Hancock Investment Management

About the Portfolio Intelligence podcast

The Portfolio Intelligence podcast features interviews with asset allocation experts, portfolio construction specialists, and investment veterans from across John Hancock’s multimanager network. Hosted by John Bryson, head of investment consulting at John Hancock Investment Management, the dynamic discussion explores ideas advisors can use today to build their business while helping their clients pursue better investment outcomes.

John Bryson: 
Hello, and welcome to the Portfolio Intelligence podcast. I'm your host, John Bryson, head of investment consulting at John Hancock Investment Management. As always, the goal of this podcast is to help investment professionals deliver better outcomes for their clients and their practice. Today is March 17, 2021, and we've got two things going on. We've got St Patrick's Day and the Fed meeting. And any time we hear from the Fed, I love to connect with Emily Roland and Matt Miskin, our co-chief investment strategists at John Hancock Investment Management, to hear their take. So, as I mentioned, we had the Fed meeting today. We've got a lot of stimulus going on, a lot of things to talk about, but before we dig in too deep, Emily, I want to ask you, why should we care about the Fed at all? What's its role in the big picture of things?

Emily Roland: 
Thanks, John, and happy St. Patrick's Day to you. I know we share a similar Irish heritage and we're both looking forward to carrying on our family traditions later today. I want to talk about the Fed because I think in broad terms, because I do think it's a really important question. And the idea here is that the Fed actually holds the key to the economic and the market cycle. So essentially what happens is that early in a market cycle, inflation starts to accelerate, growth accelerates, the Fed remains fairly accommodative, but as the cycle progresses, the economy starts to overheat, inflation picks up and the Fed steps in to remove the froth essentially, and they'd start to tighten credit conditions. That is typically the series of events that eventually leads into a recession. So markets are hyper-focused on every single word that we hear out of the Fed, because it gives us a sense of where we are in the economic cycle and sort of how long that the party can go on for. Now, right now, we're at the early part of the cycle.

Emily Roland: 
The economy's starting to really pick up, gain steam, we've got another big round of fiscal stimulus that's supercharging economic growth here. One of the challenges to this is that the cycle's happening fast. In fact, it's aging very, very quickly. We all feel like we're aging quickly, not exactly an analogy that I love using as a woman in her forties, but it's happening. And so the key question that's coming in for investors is how soon is the Fed going to need to signal to us that they're going to tighten financial conditions? And the bond market started sniffing that out over the last number of weeks here as the 10-year Treasury has backed up and anticipation of maybe inflation coming to the forefront sooner rather than later. And some of this was flushed out at the Fed meeting today, and I know we'll talk about that in just a minute, but the Fed again, really is kind of the key central factor as far as markets and cross asset class returns are concerned.

John Bryson: 
Great. And for what it's worth, as we're on a podcast, you don't look a day over 30, so ...

Emily Roland: 
Thanks.

John Bryson: 
You got it. Hey, Matt. So let's dig in a little bit today. What we heard from the Fed. What did we learn today?

Matt Miskin: 
So the first thing we got was the summary of economic projections, and these come out on a quarterly basis. It is created by the FOMC members of the Fed. They all get to provide their own individual forecasts on GDP, unemployment, inflation, and future rate hikes. And what we found today was that the Fed and FOMC members believe that inflation is going to be above 2%, 2021, 2022, and 2023. And yet they do not believe they are going to raise rates at all over that period. So the risk to this meeting was that the Fed was going to see higher inflation and that they were going to suggest that a rate hike was going to come in 2023. The FOMC members actually did not do that. And the biggest development that's been going on as this Fed meeting happened was the Fed has changed their inflation framework.

Matt Miskin: 
They now are using what's called average inflation targeting, AIT, which is looking for a slightly or moderately above 2% inflation for some period of time. So think several quarters to maybe even a year. But what we show in the summary of economic projections is they see above 2% inflation and they're still not going to raise rates; at least that's what they're saying right now. So the 10-year Treasury yields on the back of this, going up to the Fed meeting, had risen pretty meaningfully to about 1.68% post the Fed meeting. It did come down some as the bond market was likely looking for a more hawkish or tighter policy guidance out of the Fed today, so that's what we got really no change other than that. The QE [quantitative easing] program, $120 billion a month between Treasuries, mortgage-backed securities, still on track, likely to continue at least through the summer at this point. But for the markets, what I think was the change where the new information was, even though inflation is going to run a little above 2%, the Fed is not planning to raise rates anytime soon.

John Bryson: 
It's funny. I think over the last couple of weeks, the market has been a little bit spooked by inflation, but the Fed doesn't seem to be that worried about it, which is soothing the markets right now. Emily, I want to come back to you and talk more about this flooding the market with cash. We had a $1.9 trillion stimulus package that passed and we might have more. So can you talk about the impact that it's having on markets, whether it be fixed-income equities, on the economy in general?

Emily Roland: 
Yeah, absolutely. And as it relates to the Fed, the Fed has been asking really since the crisis began for more fiscal stimulus. They've been telling policymakers in Washington that we need more in order to create a bridge, to help heal the jobs market and help bring the economy back to prepandemic levels, and they got it. And kind of the strange irony of it is that now that we have this additional fiscal stimulus, it's prompting investors to forecast that more inflation is coming. One of the things I thought was really interesting that Powell did in the press conference today is say, look, we have to actually see inflationary pressures come through. We actually have to see it in the numbers. So the bond market is looking at inflation expectations, but if you actually look at the economic data, we're not quite seeing it yet. So that's an important distinction to make.

Emily Roland: 
And one of the reasons that the Fed has said that they're going to stay on the sidelines here for a while and continue with QE and continue with accommodative policy. Now, the other, not so Fed related, but I think important takeaway from this new fiscal stimulus package is that it is accelerating the recovery in the economy here in the U.S. and it's creating a multispeed global economic backdrop, where the U.S. is improving faster than the rest of the world. Frankly, fiscal stimulus hasn't been as potent overseas, and we're emerging from the COVID crisis at a faster pace. And, in our view, this improving relative environment bodes well for U.S. equities. It bodes well for looking to rotate into to more economically sensitive or cyclical areas in the U.S., areas like mid-cap equities and infrastructure. So there's some key implications here to that multispeed environment across our views and Market Intelligence.

Emily Roland: 
And I think that continues and is exacerbated. You asked about an infrastructure bill as well. That's a possibility as we head throughout 2021. There has been a range of proposals on the table in terms of infrastructure spending in the U.S., everywhere from $2 to $4 trillion. In addition, the only difference this time, and this is very much a moving target, is infrastructure spending may need to be paid for with higher taxes. So again, it depends on how this bill ends up going through. The $1.9 trillion relief was through bipartisan support. This may have to be done under a process called reconciliation in Washington, DC, which basically means that it needs to get paid for by raising taxes. So we'll need to see if that's something that could potentially weigh on markets as we look out into the rest of the year, but there’s still a lot to be learned there as we head forward out of Washington.

John Bryson: 
So as we kind of continue this theme around the Fed and stimulus in general, monetary or fiscal, Matt, I want to ask you, you mentioned the rise in rates. You mentioned that we hit about 1.68% and maybe we've come off that high a little bit in the 10-year Treasury, but where do you see it now? And how are you thinking about fixed income positioning in Market Intelligence?

Matt Miskin: 
So the rise in the 10-year and longer dated Treasury yields has been significant. So we were at about 50 basis points back in August. We're now around 1.64%. I mean, that's a pretty sizable jump, and this is now very much in line with that of the taper tantrum, in terms of the drawdown that happened there. 2016 had a bond market drawdown. And those drawdowns were in the ballpark of four to 5%. We're probably down about three and a half right now, all in on the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. So this type of drawdown is not unprecedented. Actually, we've seen this every several years. When the bond market sees these kinds of drawdowns. It's actually usually a better entry point because yields have gone up, and what we've seen is out of investment-grade corporate bonds, in particular, yields have inched up and in certain places they've moved pretty meaningfully.

Matt Miskin: 
For example, BBB and BB corporate bonds have seen yields rise to the tune of almost 1%; out of BB's, you can now get about 4% yields. High yield is about 5%. So higher quality high yield is getting more yield to it, so that's our favorite part. If we were to pinpoint a part of the credit spectrum just below investment grade, those bonds that could be rising angels that can go from high yield to investment grade is where we would use that active management budget, if you will, or tracking error within fixed income. Because as the economy improves, we see better ratings. The yields have gotten better. A 4% to 5% yield right now would be great, but we are balancing that with a bit higher quality mortgage-backed securities and securitized type positions. They have lower duration, about three and a half years.

Matt Miskin: 
The only problem is the yield is lower. So you're talking 1 ½%, 2% in yield, but that's in essence, our foundation. We are looking at bank loans as, as an addition to our calls into the second quarter, a small allocation with a slightly positive overweight though, because it is something out of our kind of strategic longer-term views. We do believe tactically it can make sense to lower the duration of your fixed-income portfolio, but at the end of the day, we don't want our bonds acting just like equities. We have equities in the portfolio to do that, but what we want in our bonds is about five years of duration, so below that of the Aggregate Bond Index, which is about six years, and a better yield in the Aggregate Bond Index, so that the yield on the Aggregate Bond Index about 1.5%, right now. We're targeting about 1% to 3% through a well-diversified fixed-income portfolio.

Matt Miskin: 
And so, core plus making up the biggest parts of that, multi-sector, and then some bank loans, is how we would arrange a broader fixed-income portfolio. And it's really built to weather both interest-rate risk and credit risk, both right now, or ones that we're trying to manage within a fixed-income portfolio. And at the end of the day, we have equities really in there for the rising rate period for duration risk, and value equities, as Emily had highlighted, and mid caps and industrials, those are what you have in the portfolio of rising rates. They're working on this rising rate environment, let your bonds be there for acting like bonds, but those select opportunities we think can put you in a better position.

John Bryson: 
Good overview of fixed income. Emily, I want to talk to you about equities. We talked a little bit earlier: The Fed asks for stimulus—they got it. We're seeing the economy of the U.S. and around the world growing, headed in the right direction. All good things, but we're seeing tech weaken. It was the golden child last year, but it's weakening this year. What's your outlook and take on tech?

Emily Roland: 
So believe it or not, this is also related to rates. And essentially what we've seen is that longer dated assets, or sectors, or areas in the market, whose cash flows are expected to come in the future, so longer duration assets, those cash flows are now being discounted at a higher rate as the 10-year Treasury goes up. So those stocks, many of which have had fairly egregious valuations coming into this, are being challenged on the idea that rates are going up. And again, those future cash flows are being discounted at a higher rate. And that's been one of the reasons where we've seen technology really be one of the only areas of the market that's really been shaken by higher rates. Stocks in general can actually usually do quite well as rates are budging higher. This is one reason that we have had a preference for, while we've had a preference for the technology sector and for quality in the portfolio, we have stayed away from the momentum factor.

Emily Roland: 
Some of the key names that you've seen really come under pressure this year have been part of that. We had been concerned about the massive run-up and the overvaluation of that part of the market. We still want to own quality in our portfolio; we still want to own growth. We've talked a lot today, and by the way, growth and quality go hand in hand in many ways, and are exhibited by the technology sector in the U.S. We're talking about a good return on equity, good balance sheets, good earnings stability. We still want to own some of that. So right now, we're letting value work. As Matt mentioned, you want to own value. You want to own these more cyclically sensitive parts of the market as rates go up, but that doesn't mean that we want to abandon growth, and quality, and technology.

Emily Roland: 
And we've just seen that the easiest financial conditions in our lifetime; we're seeing rates responding to that accelerating growth backdrop. But as we head into the back half of the year, we could start to see things sort of return to normal, and that this supercharged backdrop starts to sort of settle in a little bit. And at that time we think that fundamentals rather than macroeconomic factors like inflation and rates are actually going to come into the spotlight a little bit more. And that's when you really want to continue to embrace quality in a portfolio, and it can actually peacefully coexist with value in our view. So we want some of each, a mixture of quality and value, to ride out what should be a fairly choppy environment throughout the year.

John Bryson: 
That's great to hear. And I will say that you and Matt have both been talking about quality and growth for probably the last 18 months and advising people to keep their eye on that. And it's playing out the way that you had kind of talked about. Matt, my last question for the two of you is kind of broaden the comments around the rest of the equity market. You and Emily both talked a little bit about value, a little bit about mid cap. Can you broaden out the outlook for the rest of equities?

Emily Roland: 
Yeah, sure. If we look globally right now, the United States looks to be the best, economically speaking, other than China. And it's going to be, actually, it's going to be a race relative to China this year. So we're hearing GDP forecast for the United States of 8% this year. To put that in perspective, that has only been reached in the early eighties and the late 1950s over the last half-century. So this is going to be some really strong growth based on what you were talking about all that stimulus that's coming in the pipeline. So we are looking to overweight U.S. assets within a broader equity portfolio. We're pulling that from Europe, Japan, and other developed countries in allocations abroad. And then within the international bucket, we are actually overweighting emerging markets. We believe that China is going to be neck and neck with the best growth with the United States.

Emily Roland: 
So you want to have exposure to China as well. And really those two spots within a global portfolio, emerging markets and U.S. equities, we think are going to be the best international developed. It's not that we don't want any in the portfolio, but we just don't like the financials there as much. We'd rather you play the financials and value in the U.S. because the yield curve can steepen here. And we've talked about how much the 10-year's gone up. German yields and European yields are still negative. So U.S. banks look better to us than European banks. Within Europe, we like more growth-oriented companies and consumer discretionary and industrials as a twist there, but overall U.S. and EM are two favorites.

John Bryson:
Excellent. Well, Emily and Matt, it is always a pleasure to talk to you. Folks, if you're not following them on Twitter, I recommend you do. You can find them at emilyrroland or matthew_miskin. I'm going to let you both go and enjoy the rest of St. Patrick's Day. I have visions of Emily serving corned beef and cabbage, and Matt teaching his kids Irish step dance. So it's going to be a fun night at both those households. I'm going to bore my kids with Irish music for the rest of the night. So folks, thanks for listening in.
