内容简介:

By Jiangzhi Huang (Penn State Univ) and Ying Wang (SUNY-Albany)This paper examines the ability of government bond fund managers to time the market, based on their holdings of Treasury securities during the period 1997-2006.  We find that, on average, government bond fund managers exhibit significant and positive timing ability at the one-month horizon, under a holdings-based timing measure. In particular, fund managers specializing inTreasury securities are more likely to better time the market than general government bondfund managers. We also find that more successful market timers tend to have relatively higher Morningstar ratings, larger fund flows, lower expense ratios, higher Sharpe ratios, and higher concentrations of holdings of Treasury securities.
