Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance is for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, the Fund's current performance may be lower or higher than quoted. The Fund's performance at market price will differ from its results at NAV. Returns are historical and are calculated by determining the percentage change in net asset value or market price (as applicable) with all distributions reinvested and includes management fees and other expenses. Until the reinvestment of Fund distributions is completed, returns are calculated using the lower of the net asset value or market price of the shares on the distribution ex date. Once the reinvestment is complete, returns are calculated using the average reinvestment price. Performance less than one year is cumulative.

This data reflects distributions paid on Fund shares held for the full calendar year and is not predictive of the tax character of current or future distributions. Fund shareholders should refer to the individual IRS Form 1099-DIVs provided to them shortly after each year-end to determine the appropriate federal income tax treatment of the distributions they receive. Eaton Vance is not responsible for any errors in tax reporting that may result from using the above data. Non-qualified ordinary dividends are subject to federal income tax at ordinary rates. Qualified dividends and capital gains distributions are taxable at long-term capital gains rates. Nondividend distributions, also known as return of capital distributions, are not subject to current federal income tax. Instead, the tax cost basis of each shareholder receiving a return of capital distribution is reduced by the amount of the distribution.

In recent years, a significant portion of the Fund’s distributions has been characterized as return of capital.

Insights & Analysis

Quarterly Commentary

A Word On The Markets  as of Jun 30, 2015

High-yield corporate bond returns were flat for the quarter. Demand for high-yield bonds started off strong in the first weeks of April, as interest rates remained low and oil prices rose off their bottom. However, flows into the asset class began to slow, as volatility increased and yields on 10-year German bunds and U.S. Treasurys moved higher. A string of strong U.S. economic numbers in late May and June accelerated prospects for a near-term interest-rate hike, which further unsettled investors. Then, in late June, Greece became the first developed country to miss a payment to the International Monetary Fund. Uncertainty about whether Greece would be forced out of the eurozone, along with a potential default by Puerto Rico and declining stock prices in China, weighed on the markets.

Mortgage rates rose along with U.S. Treasurys, causing mortgage-backed securities (MBS) prepayment speeds to fall in April and May from their March highs. Historically, there has been a 45- to 60-day delay between a rate move in Treasurys and the time that a new mortgage closes. As such, the second-quarter move in Treasurys may serve as a continued tailwind for slower MBS refinancings in the third quarter. Despite the potential for this tailwind, MBS spreads over Treasurys were modestly wider for the second quarter due to interest-rate volatility.

In regards to the loan market, the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan Index (the Index)6 advanced a mere 0.69% for the three months ended June 30, 2015, amid softening technical conditions. Performance for the period was composed of 1.17% in coupon income and a price decline of -0.48%. Second quarter results edged up the Index’s year-to-date performance to 2.83%, carried predominantly by the strong technical footing that underscored the opening quarter of the year. On fundamentals, the loan market’s benign environment continued throughout the quarter, and the lagging-12-month loan default rate eased to 1.24% by amount, down from 3.79% a quarter earlier (as EFH rolled off the tally) and up to 0.81% by number of loans, from a three-year low of 0.61% a quarter ago

Performance Summary 

Eaton Vance Limited Duration Income Fund (the Fund) had total returns of 0.43% at net asset value and -4.38% at market price for the quarter.

  • The Fund’s investments in seasoned MBS outperformed the Treasury market, as measured by the BofA Merrill Lynch 1-10 Year U.S. Treasury Index.7 Despite agency MBS spreads widening relative to Treasurys during the quarter, the Fund’s agency MBS outperformed both Treasurys and generic mortgages. The Fund’s investment in more prepayment sensitive, negative duration MBS were a strong contributor to performance, as rates rose and mortgage prepayments declined.
  • The Fund’s floating-rate loan investments slightly underperformed the loan market, as measured by the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan Index (Loan Index), for the period. While delivering lower overall credit risk compared to the Index, the Fund’s quality bias also served as a contributor to performance, as BB-rated loans, to which the Fund is overweight, outperformed the Loan Index. The Fund’s underweight to lower-quality, CCC and D (defaulted) rated loans – which underperformed the Loan Index during the period – also contributed to performance relative to the Loan Index. However, despite the benefit of the credit quality bias, an overweight to the health care and steel sectors detracted from the Fund’s performance. An underweight to utilities – which underperformed the Loan Index – helped performance.
  • The Fund’s high-yield bond investments outperformed the high-yield market, as measured by the BofA Merrill Lynch U.S. High Yield Index (High Yield Index). The Fund’s performance was primarily driven by credit selection. This was especially true in the energy and metals/mining sectors, which were the top performing sectors in the portfolio. Credit selection in securities rated B, BB and CCC also helped relative performance. In terms of duration, the credit selection in bonds with a duration between two and five years and an underweight position in bonds with a duration of over 5 years boosted performance relative to the High Yield Index. Credit selection in the gaming sector, an overweight position in the cable/satellite TV sector and an underweight position in the financial services sector slightly hurt performance.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

We are cautiously optimistic about the outlook for high-yield bonds. On a macro level, we’ve been encouraged by the U.S. economy’s momentum and its resilience in light of recent events in Greece. Improved economic growth typically keeps a lid on defaults and often boosts the financial strength of many high-yield issuers. In addition, high-yield bonds offer a potential yield advantage that attracts investors in a low interest rate environment. While no one can predict exactly when, expectations are that interest rates will eventually begin to increase.

Management also believes that the Fed’s decision on when to begin reducing its balance sheet will have a significant impact on fixed-income markets, but that change could be upwards of a year away. Until then, supply/demand technicals remain supportive of MBS, as Fed reinvestments absorb roughly 30% of agency issuance. We believe that high coupon, seasoned agency MBS will continue to offer the most value in the agency MBS market and will likely not have the extension risk that lower coupon generic MBS have, which may be valuable if rates rise.

Looking ahead, we believe loan market defaults should broadly remain at bay, barring any exogenous shocks and so long as the U.S. economy continues its slow growth apace. With credit risk broadly benign for now, the main risks for the loan market appear to be of a technical nature, for example, an unexpected macroeconomic event or a major shift in flows. On fundamentals, we believe limited near-term maturities, ongoing cash flow growth and relatively strong credit profiles are likely to shield the market from any material upswing in defaults for now. Still, we’ll continue to emphasize the importance of fundamental credit selection, both now and in the years ahead.
