The difficult part of this equation is that most of these funds still expect a 6-8% return on their portfolio. Not sure where that is going to come from out of the magic alpha ether.

There must be something in the water: three big deals have failed to materialise. HSBC has withdrawn its £5bn plan to buy Nedbank; Sinochem will not bid against BHP Billiton’s already toppish $39bn offer for PotashCorp; and rigor mortis has set in on BHP Billiton’s proposed iron ore joint venture with Rio Tinto. Each story is different.
Many stories, but one common theme: economic caution. HSBC did not want to take its chances in South Africa; no one wanted to test Chinese intentions; and there was little appetite for a huge joint venture in an already concentrated sector. It is still far too early for deals that ignore precedents or test limits.illashenko МегаБлог
Today’s pessimists foresee a grim 3D scenario for the global economy: debt, deflation, and depression. The bulls see a 3P scenario: productivity, profits, and prosperity.
“There are two schools of thought,” says Jim Casey, managing director at JPMorgan. “The first looks at absolute interest rates, which are at historic lows, and which could therefore indicate we are at a market top. The second looks at credit spreads, and these are still much higher than the historic average.”

The growing market for exchange traded funds provides asset managers with practical asset allocation tools, but currently ETFs are mainly used as buy-and-hold instruments in static asset allocation. This seems surprising as one of the main advantages investors see in ETFs is their liquidity, which remains largely unused in static asset allocation.
С чем я не согласен (т.е. согласен с Розенбергом в неочевидности этих тезисов)
1.Double-dip risks have been averted
2.A muddle-through economy will generate $95 of earnings next year
3.Home prices have stabilized
4.The mid-term elections are a critical inflection point
5.QE2 is coming, and it will work
Интересно об отчетности.
И снова мы не замечаем бревен в глазу: а что между рецессиями провалов не было?

Yes! We Can!

Uncertainty changing investment landscape (PIMCO)
Uncertainty changing investment landscape
First, investing based on “mean reversion” will be less compelling. Even though flatter distributions with fatter tails have means, the constituency for mean reversion investing will shrink as those means will be much less often realised in practice. A world where the realised return rarely equals the expected valuation creates a bigger demand for liquid, default-free assets; it also lowers the demand for more volatile asset classes such as equities. These shifts are already taking place.
Second, frequent “risk on/risk off” fluctuations in investors’ sentiment are here to stay. Investors, based on 25 years of rules of thumb that “worked” during the great moderation, thought they knew more about the distribution of risk than they in fact did. This led to overconfidence during the bubble. The crisis reminded investors that these rules of thumb are less useful, if not dangerous.With declining confidence in a reliable set of investing rules, markets have become more susceptible to overreactions to daily news and, are, therefore, more volatile. Just think of the number of triple-digit days in the Dow. Moreover, because of the complex and broader involvement, real and perceived, of governments in the economy, separating policy signal from noise, and execution versus intent, has become as important as – but harder than – forecasting the macro data.
Third, tail hedging will become more important. An understandable consequence of the crisis is less trust in diversification as the sole mitigator for portfolio risk. We are already seeing increased investor interest in tail hedging, though the phenomenon is still limited to a small set of investors.
Fourth, historical benchmarks and correlations will be challenged. In this new “unusually uncertain” world, many investors will need to fundamentally rethink the design of benchmarks and the role of asset class correlations in implementing their investment strategies. The investment industry is yet to give sufficient attention to this.
Finally, less credit will be available to sustain leverage and high valuations. Even apart from the inevitable response to regulatory actions aimed at derisking banks, a world of flatter and fatter distributions will reduce available supply of leverage to finance trades and balance sheet expansion.
