  • Analysts Weigh In on Bill Gross 'Mistake' on Bonds Tuesday, 30 Aug 2011 | 11:02 AM ET

    Pimco's manager in charge of the world's largest bond fund, Bill Gross, may have made a mistake when betting against US bond prices earlier this year, but the economy has deteriorated faster than anyone had appreciated, analysts told CNBC Tuesday.

  • "Obviously in hindsight it¿s a bit of a mistake. Treasuries makes up roughly a quarter of the US bond market so saying we¿re going to completely abandon them in a fund as large as the one Bill Gross runs is a huge bet and it¿s a huge bullish bet on the credit markets, it¿s a huge bearish bet on government bonds. Now clearly that hasn¿t come true but economic conditions have deteriorated far quicker than either we or Pimco could have anticipated. And the Federal Reserve has made this additional commitment in the last couple of weeks. It has really supported the government bond market and that¿s to detriment of many other asset classes in the fixed income universe"¿ Guy Lebas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott
