As a result of the Japanese quantitative easing and low interest rates globally, markets have rebounded with interest re-emerging for companies which pay attractive yield. It is becoming apparent that bonds do not offer investors an attractive yield, and investors need to take on equity risk in order to receive a reasonable return. In Australia this has been demonstrated most notably in the strong share price appreciation of the banks. We discuss this issue this month in relation to our current portfolio positioning, and in particular we focus on the valuation of the banks at present.
