US Treasurys should “definitely” be shorted, as rising rates are going to be a concern once the fears over Japan and Middle East settle, according to James Shelton, CIO of Kanaly Trust.
“Pimco’s sold all of their Treasurys…and who’s going to buy Treasury bonds when QE2 [quantitative easing] ends and potentially there’s not another QE3?” Shelton told CNBC.
Shelton said investors should look at areas where they can get “better yields” that are safer such as MLPs*.
In the meantime, Sarat Sethi, partner and portfolio manager at Douglas C. Lane & Associates, said he is in favor of the tech sector.
“Compared to 10 years ago, most technology companies have huge amounts of cash on their balance sheets, good earnings power, and dividends of 2 to 3 percent,” he explained. “All these companies are increasing dividends, as opposed to two years ago where they were buying back stocks.”
