Leveraged loan returns were in the middle of the pack among the five asset classes LCD tracks monthly, behind equities and high yield bonds, while outperforming investment-grade corporate bonds and 10-year Treasuries.
The 10-year Treasury yield climbed to 2.12% on May 29 from 2.05% at the end of April. For the first five months of 2015 the story is similar. The 10-year yield is down slightly from the year-end mark of 2.17%. As a result, 10-year Treasuries and investment-grade corporates are lagging loans on the year-to-date leaderboard. High-yield bonds, meanwhile, are ahead, and equities slightly behind. - Steve Miller
