Bond Investors Pursued Yield In The First Quarter
Appetite for yield ruled taxables in March and the first quarter. That was reflected in total returns for riskier debt. Flexible income funds led all taxables in Q1 with a 2.91% gain on average, on top of a 0.95% March gain, according to preliminary Lipper Inc. data. High-yield bond funds were close behind, tacking on 2.75% in Q1 after a 0.97% March advance. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Treasury funds lost 0.79% in Q1 and inched up 0.09%
