Bill Gross Releases New Investment Outlook, ‘Neither a Lender Nor a Stockholder Be’

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., Oct. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Legendary bond and fixed income investor William H. (Bill) Gross today released a new Investment Outlook, “Neither a Lender Nor a Stockholder Be.” In his latest Outlook, Mr. Gross writes that he’s skeptical about a return to a bull market anytime soon: “Once the Fed stops and then lowers short-term rates, we’ve got a bull market optimists claim. Well not so fast.”

Mr. Gross doesn’t believe the Federal Reserve under Jerome Powell is willing or able to lower short term rates significantly enough while confronting a future of 3% inflation. “I’d pass on stocks and bonds in terms of future total returns,” Mr. Gross writes. “Best bets are arbitrage situations such as ATVI (Activision) and CPRI (Capri) that yield annualized returns of 10-20%. (ATVI should close in 2 weeks or so). Pipeline MLPs are still a favorite of mine due to their favorable partnerships tax benefits but pricewise are a little toppy due to oil prices that seem vulnerable to the downside.”

Mr. Gross concludes by noting, “In any case, keep your eye on real (and nominal) 10 year Treasury rates. They need to come down a lot to validate existing forward P/E ratios. They may not.”
