Paul Tudor Jones Is Expecting A Bear Market, Yet Buying These Stocks

Billionaire Paul Tudor Jones runs a $7 billion hedge fund, called Tudor Investment Corp. The fund has been fighting for years to bring the profits to its investors, and the current year is bringing a little bit of optimism, as it has gained 9% through October. In this article, we’ll take a look at Paul Tudor Jones’ top stock pick in the third quarter.

Before we proceed with the most important new holdings in Tudor Investment Corp’s equity portfolio, let’s take a look at what he said about the US tax cuts at the recent Greenwich Economic Forum in Greenwich, Connecticut. Jones holds the opinion that US tax cuts may cause the bubble in credit to pop. He predicted that We’re going to stress test our whole corporate credit market for the first time.” Let’s remind you that, although Jones’ hedge fund hadn’t had luck with its performance in recent years, Jones has been right with his forecasts, as he had predicted “Black Monday” stock market crash back in 1987. Hence, when it comes to corporate credit we can probably expect some tough times.


According to Jones, thanks to zero and negative interest rates, there has been too much lending, and current levels of leverage may be alarming. Credit markets have been affected by various factors such as trade wars, oil prices, etc. with global high yield bonds being hit the most, going through its worst period since the market crash in 2008. Jones said that stocks, bonds, currencies and real estate are all overpriced, and that “the next trade will be a “front-end rates trade” of figuring out when policy makers will cease interest rate hikes.”

Let’s take a look at what Jones thought were the safest bets, what are his top stock pick for the third quarter 2018.

1. Hanger Inc (NYSE:HNGR)
