  1. Tim,

    I would have thought if a bear market is near and interest rates are rising, this would a big negative for stocks like BT. You could see them under their IV and be a better by.

    • That’s a good point, Jeff, and something we wrestled with. Where we came out was that: (1) We don’t know whether the market will enter bear territory or continue to rise, (2) The overall portfolio is nevertheless positioned for a bear market, given cash weighting and mostly conservative portfolio holdings, and (3) to avoid BTT in these circumstances would effectively be “double counting” our concerns around elevated market valuations.
