A year ago I posted about an article that I read suggesting that bonds were nearing the top of a bubble.

The post is linked below.

I put a reminder for a year later to see how bonds had done for 2012 and while they as an asset class (especially treasuries) did OK in 2012 they definitely underperformed domestic equities.

However, the first month of 2013 turned out to be a different matter. Domestic equities knocked the lights out, but have given back some of that so far this month.

According to one article I read, treasuries lost 5-6% in January which put their performance versus equities about 10% below equities for January. Treasuries have had a better February so far though.

The article linked below states that treasuries are overvalued. Personally I put more stock in Bill Gross's statements in the article than Jim Rogers', George Soros' former partner.
