|U.S. Weekly FundFlows Insight Report: Despite a Fed Rate Hike, Investors Are Net Purchasers of Taxable and Tax-Exempt Fixed Income Funds and ETFs for the Week|
For the first week in eight investors were net redeemers of fund assets (including those of conventional funds and ETFs), withdrawing a little more than $26.3 billion for Thomson Reuters Lipper’s fund-flows week ended June 13, 2018. As a result of general caution ahead of the G-7 summit, central bank meetings, and the Singapore summit scheduled for the week, fund investors were net redeemers of equity funds (-$9.7 billion) and, perhaps surprisingly, money market funds (-$18.1 billion). Despite the interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve Board, taxable bond funds (+$1.0 billion) were net recipients of investor assets, followed by municipal bond funds (+$450 million).
|U.S. Weekly FundFlows Insight Report: Despite Market Rally, Investors Are Net Redeemers of Equity Funds and ETFs for the Week|
For the seventh week in a row investors were net purchasers of fund assets (including those of conventional funds and ETFs) in general, adding a little more than $29.6 billion for Thomson Reuters Lipper’s fund-flows week ended June 6, 2018. However, the headline number was misleading. Despite upbeat economic reports and a market rally during the flows week, fund investors were net redeemers of equity funds (-$4.3 billion) and taxable bond funds (-$1.2 billion). Perhaps as a result of continuing trade war and geopolitical concerns, money market funds (+$34.9 billion) were the primary recipients of investor assets, followed at a distance by municipal bond funds (+$189 million).

POCKETBOOK: Week ending June 17, 2018
Not so subtle signs - The great divide between our two America’s — one in which the wealthy enjoy the fruits of their fortunes and the much larger group that finds making it harder and more challenging than ever—is not-so subtly showing signs of widening.

POCKETBOOK: Week ending June 9, 2018
Fickle trickle - Funny how the average guy and gal have to use a magnifying glass to see the effect of Trump’s trickle down economic policies in their day-to-day lives. Yes, businesses are expanding, the unemployment rate is down and the stock market has yet to stumble and fall. But unless you’re in the top 10 percent of wage earners, odds are your salary hasn’t increased much over the past couple of years.
