According to Janet Yang, CFA, the Capital Group has experienced some transitions and the company’s stocks have trailed bonds. The materialistic allocation funds are being given priority and it has emerged ahead of moderate allocation funds. This has resulted in materialistic funds having the smallest stakes in equities while the moderate one ends up the most. However, Janet claims that checking in detail; the allocation funds can be said to be successful.
According to Tim Armour, The United states economy is not growing as strongly expected in the second half of the year. The expectation has been that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates sooner rather than later. According to him the Federal Reserve still needs to go ahead with raising rates because near-zero interest rates come with undue risks to investors.
