Quick view: Market plunge due to over-exuberance

06/02/2018

Oliver Blackbourn, Fund Manager with Janus Henderson’s UK-based Multi-Asset Team, comments on the dramatic plunge in stock markets globally. He discusses the factors that have contributed to the sell-off.
 
For a time following the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), bad news was considered good news. Disappointing economic data was met with further monetary policy support, or at least the expectation of it. This is no longer true and, judging by the panic of the last 48 hours, may have even reversed.
 
At the time of writing, markets have plunged at the signs of faster wage growth and a strengthening US economy that may lead to higher inflation and faster interest rate hikes. A quickly rising cost of borrowing is unwelcome at a time when levels of corporate debt already look high.
 
Few places to hide
 
With the US Federal Reserve taking away the easy stimulus punchbowl from the quantitative easing (QE) party and the European Central Bank (ECB) telling markets that they have probably had enough, asset prices are losing some of the support that has driven valuations to expensive levels. There are few places to hide when everything has risen so strongly.
 
Market complacency and recent low volatility (ie, a lack of sharp price swings) have likely led to some investors assuming that markets will keep climbing, rather than whether this climb is backed by rising corporate earnings. History provides many examples of what happens when investors overextend themselves. However, for more dynamic investors, these falls could represent an opportunity.
 
Economic data releases have indicated that global growth continues to strengthen and inflation is still relatively subdued, meaning that this still appears to be a decent environment for the growth of corporate earnings. Having previously moved to ‘fade the surge’ in the recent exuberance, we are looking for the appropriate moment to reinvest at more reasonable prices.
 
 
Glossary:
 
Corporate earnings = Corporate earnings are the amount of profit that a company produces during a specific time period, often defined as a quarter (three calendar months) or a year.
 
Dynamic investors = investors that are prepared to buy and sell assets to take into account market price fluctuations and their views on particular areas of the market. These are as opposed to ‘buy-and-hold’ investors, who typically make no changes to their portfolios even if market prices fluctuate.
 
Fade the surge = tactically sell some assets in an investment portfolio to manage risks.
 
Inflation = the rate at which the prices of goods and services are rising in an economy.
 
Easy stimulus = central bank measures that aim to stimulate an economy, seeking to maintain a plentiful supply of money and keeping borrowing costs low (eg, through low interest rates).
 
Quantitative easing = a measure whereby a central bank creates large sums of money to purchase government bonds or other securities, in order to stimulate the economy.
 
Valuation = valuation is a method of calculating theoretical values of companies and their stocks. The main use of these methods is to predict future market prices, or more generally, potential market prices.

Specific risks

  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • The Fund may use derivatives towards the aim of achieving its investment objective. This can result in 'leverage', which can magnify an investment outcome and gains or losses to the Fund may be greater than the cost of the derivative. Derivatives also introduce other risks, in particular, that a derivative counterparty may not meet its contractual obligations.
  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • If the Fund holds assets in currencies other than the base currency of the Fund or you invest in a share class of a different currency to the Fund (unless 'hedged'), the value of your investment may be impacted by changes in exchange rates.
  • If the Fund or a specific share class of the Fund seeks to reduce risks (such as exchange rate movements), the measures designed to do so may be ineffective, unavailable or detrimental.
  • Certain funds are able to invest in shares issued by investment trust companies, including split capital investment trusts. The level of risk depends on both the share class and prevailing market conditions. Moreover, many split capital investment trusts use gearing (borrowing) which can lead to considerable volatility in their asset values and share prices. This can increase the level of risk compared with those that do not have a split capital structure and those that do not employ gearing. In certain market conditions some split capital investment trusts can lose their value.
  • Securities within the Fund could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, especially in extreme market conditions when asset prices may be falling, increasing the risk of investment losses.
  • The Fund invests in other funds (including exchange traded funds and investment trusts/companies), which may introduce more risky assets, derivative usage and other risks, as well as contributing to a higher level of ongoing charges.

Specific risks

  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • The Fund may invest in other funds, which may increase losses due to investment in risky assets such as property or commodities, restrictions on withdrawals, less strict regulation and use of derivatives.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • The value of a bond or money market instrument may fall if the financial health of the issuer weakens, or the market believes it may weaken. This risk is greater the lower the credit quality of the bond.
  • Changes in currency exchange rates may cause the value of your investment and any income from it to rise or fall.
  • If the Fund or a specific share class of the Fund seeks to reduce risks (such as exchange rate movements), the measures designed to do so may be ineffective, unavailable or detrimental.
  • When interest rates rise (or fall), the prices of different securities will be affected differently. In particular, bond values generally fall when interest rates rise. This risk is generally greater the longer the maturity of a bond investment.
  • Any security could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, increasing the risk of investment losses.

Specific risks

  • Some or all of the Annual Management Charge and other costs of the Fund may be taken from capital, which may erode capital or reduce potential for capital growth.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • An issuer of a bond (or money market instrument) may become unable or unwilling to pay interest or repay capital to the Fund. If this happens or the market perceives this may happen, the value of the bond will fall.
  • The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk or managing the portfolio more efficiently. However this introduces other risks, in particular, that a derivative counterparty may not meet its contractual obligations.
  • The Fund may use derivatives towards the aim of achieving its investment objective. This can result in 'leverage', which can magnify an investment outcome and gains or losses to the Fund may be greater than the cost of the derivative. Derivatives also introduce other risks, in particular, that a derivative counterparty may not meet its contractual obligations.
  • If the Fund holds assets in currencies other than the base currency of the Fund or you invest in a share class of a different currency to the Fund (unless 'hedged'), the value of your investment may be impacted by changes in exchange rates.
  • If the Fund or a specific share class of the Fund seeks to reduce risks (such as exchange rate movements), the measures designed to do so may be ineffective, unavailable or detrimental.
  • When interest rates rise (or fall), the prices of different securities will be affected differently. In particular, bond values generally fall when interest rates rise. This risk is generally greater the longer the maturity of a bond investment.
  • Certain funds are able to invest in shares issued by investment trust companies, including split capital investment trusts. The level of risk depends on both the share class and prevailing market conditions. Moreover, many split capital investment trusts use gearing (borrowing) which can lead to considerable volatility in their asset values and share prices. This can increase the level of risk compared with those that do not have a split capital structure and those that do not employ gearing. In certain market conditions some split capital investment trusts can lose their value.
  • Securities within the Fund could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, especially in extreme market conditions when asset prices may be falling, increasing the risk of investment losses.
  • The Fund invests in other funds (including exchange traded funds and investment trusts/companies), which may introduce more risky assets, derivative usage and other risks, as well as contributing to a higher level of ongoing charges.
