I think the run of outperformance of bonds is over, I think it actually ended last year sometime. Unless we see sustained negative interest rates (which I think is rather unlikely) bonds should be underperformers for a while, particularly when interest rates start rising (atlhough we could be waiting a while for that) add in a little expense ratio, and a rising S&P, and you have a nice little red thumb.
