LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DoubleLine Capital has published on DoubleLine.com a research paper analyzing the performance of two non-market cap-weighted (aka "smart beta") large-cap U.S. stock strategies during rising and falling rate environments versus widely followed large-cap stock indices.
The research paper, written by DoubleLine's Cross-Asset investment team, is titled "Investing in Different Interest Rate Environments: DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE® Strategy as a Potential Solution to the Rising Rate Conundrum." The Cross-Asset team is headed by Jeffrey Sherman. Mr. Sherman also serves as deputy chief investment officer of DoubleLine Capital and co-portfolio manager, with DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach, of the DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE® Strategy.

The potential for a rising-rate regime, the paper states, behooves investors to reconsider their equity allocations. The Cross-Asset team analyzed the returns of two strategies: (1) the Shiller Barclays CAPE® U.S. Sector Total Return Index ("Shiller Barclays CAPE®"), a non-market cap-weighted, rules-based (aka "smart beta") index, and (2) the DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE®, an investment strategy pairing Shiller Barclays CAPE® with a short-to-intermediate term fixed income strategy actively managed by DoubleLine. The returns of the two strategies were compared with the returns of three passive, large-cap equity indices – the S&P 500, Russell 1000 Value and Russell 100 Growth – over rising and falling interest rate periods.
From its October 31, 2013 inception through January 31, 2017, on average, DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE® outperformed, or "enhanced," its smart-beta component (Shiller Barclays CAPE®) and outperformed the three passive equity indices. Thus, the DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE® strategy merits consideration for investors seeking to position equity exposures for rising interest rates.
