Opportunities are abundant in fixed income, says Newfleet’s David Albrycht

Investors sitting in fixed income would do well to stay there, according to Newfleet Asset Management’s David Albrycht.

“We’re getting all-in yields we haven’t seen going back to the global financial crisis,” said Albrycht, the firm’s chief investment officer, on CNBC’s “Closing Bell.” Short-term Treasury yields jumped on Monday, with the rate on the 1-year note briefly touching 5.553% — its highest level dating back to Aug. 25, 2000.

If you're in fixed income, stay: Newfleet's David Albrycht

“It’s a great time, if you’re not in fixed income, to be dollar cost averaging,” he said. “If you’re in fixed income, stay.”

Investors should also think about their reinvestment risk and their timing if they’re sitting in money market funds and certificates of deposit, Albrycht added. Indeed, the Crane 100 Money Fund Index has an annualized 7-day current yield of 5.15%.

 “It was the right move to get out of your bank account, your deposit account, but think about dollar cost averaging into fixed income, especially if the Fed can orchestrate a softer landing or a mild recession,” he said.
