Here I stand, poor fool that I am,
no wiser than before

Goethe, Faust.


The decision seems to have been made for the stock market. With all-time highs continuing, markets – and therefore investors – are increasingly assessing the likelihood of a recession in the next 12 months as less. According to a survey by Absolute Strategy Research, 225 fund managers who collectively manage $8 trillion in assets predict a gentle slowdown in the US economy. The US bond market, however, paints a contrasting picture: the persistently strong inversion of the yield curve, in which long-term bonds have lower returns than short-term ones, continues to signal an expected recession. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York regularly publishes the implied probability of recession derived from yield curve analysis. The sobering conclusion is that an impending recession is still to be expected. Here I stand, poor fool that I am, no wiser than before.

The dynamics of the global stock markets developed almost synchronously in March: The MSCI USA rose by +3.1%, closely followed by the Japanese MSCI with +2.9%, the MSCI China with +2.8% and the MSCI Europe with +3.5%. US corporate bonds posted a total gain of +1.3%, comparable to European corporate bonds which gained +1.08%.

In March, the stock portfolio recorded further growth. Consumer goods companies such as Target and Dutch Brothers as well as the payment service provider PayPal topped the list of winners. However, shares in companies such as Zscaler, Crispr Therapeutics and Zoetis in particular suffered losses. Shares from Upstart, Visa, Novo Nordisk, SAP and Microsoft were once again purchased. The bond portfolio also achieved further increases in value; positions with higher risk premiums or long maturities were particularly in demand. Only a Swedish covered bond, medium-term US government bonds and a bond from the telecommunications company Altice saw lower demand. Intermediate-term US Treasury bonds were sold in March.

We are currently concentrating on the controlled expansion of our equity positions, with the demanding valuations suggesting at least a cautious approach.
