“Bizarre behavior” in 2020

Gundlach expanded on this saying that while 2016 elections struck people as being unusual, “the 2020 election will be far worse in terms of bizarre behavior.” He also mentioned that we could even see violence and maybe even riots during the elections.

Where to make money in 2020

In this context, it is going to be difficult for investors (SPY) (VOO) to make money. In such a scenario, Gundlach suggests investors go back to “something as unspectacular as two-year treasury bonds.” In terms of bonds (BND) (AGG), Gundlach has time and again mentioned that there is high-grade corporate debt. A large chunk of these bonds should be rated junk (JNK) instead of investment-grade. During a downturn, the supply of bonds will rise even further without any corresponding increase in natural buyers.
