- There’s been plenty of prognosticating about what will happen to the bond market’s unprecedented bull run once U.S. interest rates start rising from rock-bottom levels. A quick scan of history provides plenty of support for the optimists. Every time the Federal Reserve has raised rates over the past four decades, betting that longer-term Treasuries would outperform short-term debt has proved to be a big winner as higher rates stemmed inflation and kept economic growth from overheating. What’s more, returns consistently exceeded corporate bonds in the first year of tightening, with Treasuries underperforming just once. Yields on 10-year notes, which guide interest rates on trillions of dollars of debt, ended at 2.13% on Friday, lower than they were a year ago. In 2010, yields reached 4%. (Bloomberg)
