Bond vigilantes find counterparts in the stock market

 

A bond vigilante is a bond market investor who protests monetary or fiscal policies he considers inflationary by selling bonds, thus increasing yields. … As a result, bond prices fall and yields rise, which increases the net cost of borrowing.

 

Bond vigilantes could be discovering allies in the stock market.

With inflation worries once again in trend and the U.S. budget deficit experienced soaring, vigilantes have {targeted|stormed|floaded fixed income trading floors and seem to be merge in equity markets too, where they could penalize already worn out stocks for policymakers’ and lawmakers’ conducts.

 

“The stock market is feeling the bond market’s pain. Absolutely, no doubt – we have stock vigilantes too,” says Ed Yardeni,

The nickname “bond vigilante” was coined by Yardeni in 1983 to describe investors’ insistence on high yields to compensate for the possibilities of inflation and budget deficits for the duration of the Reagan administration. A stock version of a vigilante would seek to sway lawmakers and policymakers by slamming equity prices.

 

Bond yields began to escalate on Feb. 2 after U.S. government data proved the biggest wage gains since 2009, convincing investors of the growing threat of inflation, long tame since the 2007-2009 recession.

 

U.S. stock investors have now became oversensitive to rising yields after the past week’s upturn, which elevates borrowing costs and could lessen economic earnings and production, Yardeni assumed. That also comes against the backdrop of racking up government debt.
