Fixed income market outlook with Jeff Moore - May 2021
In this episode, we are joined by fixed income portfolio manager Jeff Moore. Jeff runs the Fidelity Multi-Sector Bond Fund, Investment Grade Total Bond Fund, and several other mandates. Jeff explains that inflation is currently running high, but it is a challenge to determine whether this reflects activity from a year ago or today. He expects inflation is going to be in the 4 to 5% levels for a while. The bond market is fairly robust now relative to equities. He says that he is diversifying his portfolio, but nothing looks cheap at the moment. Jeff shares his views on the emergence of cryptocurrencies. Canadian housing rates are extraordinarily low, and a 1% change isn’t going to be devastating for borrowers. Jeff explains that for young people trying to buy homes, it’s a slightly different story. He also discusses immigration and birth rates as well as corporate markets and emerging markets. Recorded on May 12, 2021

Jeff Moore is the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture, or OKPOP, a forthcoming museum that that will honor the state’s greatest creative talents. When OKPOP opens its doors in late 2022, it will be the culmination of 15 years of planning and Jeff has been there since the beginning. OKPOP has been developed in partnership with the Oklahoma Historical Society, the institution where Jeff began his career as a curator. In 1995, Jeff had the opportunity to work on the Historical Society’s first new museum in decades, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton, Okla. The vibrant and contemporary project was transformational for Jeff, who knew from that moment that he wanted to be a part of these types of endeavors. In this episode, Jeff talks about the origin for his love of history, the relatively recent challenge of looking at pop culture from an intellectual standpoint, and the process of collaborating with Oklahoma creatives to capture their lasting legacy for future generations.

Micro-cap investor Jeff Moore (who also writes http://ragnarisapirate.blogspot.com/) discusses his bull case for Thryv (THRY). Thryv is an interesting company: their core value comes from their legacy Yellow Pages business, and they're using the cash flows and relationships from that melting ice cube to start up a SMB SaaS service. Jeff argues there's huge upside as the company taps their customer base, acquires smaller competitors, and the market starts to recognize the value of their SaaS business.Chapters0:00 Intro1:20 Thryv Overview6:15 Thryv Software discussion12:25 Why is a SaaS business attached to a Yellow Page company?14:30 Why is churn so high?20:05 Who are Thryv's competitors22:00 Don't all yellow page companies go bankrupt?28:30 Walking through Thryv's SOTP40:25 Discussing Thryv's management team45:45 What to make of the CEO buying stock while largest shareholders sell down?SHOW LESS
Navigating the fixed income market with Jeff Moore - March 2021
Every month, portfolio manager Jeff Moore brings his unique perspectives on global fixed income markets, using a multi-sector lens. Reflation and reopening are the big topics right now, and Jeff’s view is that we will reopen gradually over the next few months. The market is in the right place for now, and has done a good job of pricing in reflation, fiscal stimulus, a blue wave in the U.S., etc. Investors should think about inflation being around 3%; by December, Jeff thinks it will be back around 1% – a “snapback and then a rollback.” Jeff’s biggest concern about coronavirus variants is that we have added a lot of debt as a result of a series of shutdowns and recoveries. For some countries, this debt will be a big issue. That said, it looks like the U.S. will snap out of it a little faster than the rest, due to massive stimulus – but while the U.S. will likely have the fastest recovery, it will also have the highest interest rates.
