As the Dow lost a remarkable 559.91 points, in the midst of yields on 10-year Treasury notes rising to an impressive 2.425%, wealth managers found themselves bombarded with nervous investors looking for real time answers.  As chief investment officer of Capital Investment Advisors, Reiner effectively sought to calm the rising tide of concerned investors by sending out a client letter detailing its view on interest rates and their impact on holdings.  The letter emphasized the fact that the sudden rise in rates was a jolt, not a trend. And further advised the spike in rates was an anomaly, and the market would settle itself out.

 

Reiner went on to say that Capital Investment Advisers wouldn’t be making drastic changes to portfolios, as they have stayed a course of strategically shifting out of bonds and into stocks and other income-oriented alternative investments.

 

“Any time we see the market do what it’s doing right now, given how its valued, there is opportunity,” he said.  “The market tends to correct itself quickly.”
