About Risk 

An imbalance in supply and demand in the municipal market may result in valuation uncertainties and greater volatility, less liquidity, widening credit spreads and a lack of price transparency in the market. There generally is limited public information about municipal issuers. As interest rates rise, the value of certain income investments is likely to decline. Longer-term bonds typically are more sensitive to interest-rate changes than shorter-term bonds. Investments in income securities may be affected by changes in the creditworthiness of the issuer and are subject to the risk of nonpayment of principal and interest. The value of income securities also may decline because of real or perceived concerns about the issuer's ability to make principal and interest payments. Investments rated below investment grade (typically referred to as "junk") are generally subject to greater price volatility and illiquidity than higher-rated investments. Derivative instruments can be used to take both long and short positions, be highly volatile, result in economic leverage (which can magnify losses), and involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying instrument on which the derivative is based, such as counterparty, correlation and liquidity risk. If a counterparty is unable to honor its commitments, the value of Fund shares may decline and/or the Fund could experience delays in the return of collateral or other assets held by the counterparty. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.

The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers is responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on how a fund ranks on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure against other funds in the same category. This measure takes into account variations in a fund's monthly performance after adjusting for sales loads (except for load-waived A shares) redemption fees, and the risk-free rate, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Load-waived A share star ratings do not include any front-end sales load and are intended for those investors who have access to such purchase terms (e.g., plan participants of a defined contribution plan). Not all A share mutual funds for which Morningstar calculates a load-waived A share star rating may actually waive their front-end sales load. Therefore, Morningstar strongly encourages investors to contact their investment professional to determine whether they are eligible to purchase the A share without paying the front load. The Morningstar Rating may differ among share classes of a mutual fund as a result of different sales loads and/or expense structure.

Ratings are based on Moody's, S&P or Fitch, as applicable. If securities are rated differently by the ratings agencies, the higher rating is applied. Ratings, which are subject to change, apply to the creditworthiness of the issuers of the underlying securities and not to the Fund or its shares. Credit ratings measure the quality of a bond based on the issuer's creditworthiness, with ratings ranging from AAA, being the highest, to D, being the lowest based on S&P's measures. Ratings of BBB or higher by S&P or Fitch (Baa or higher by Moody's) are considered to be investment-grade quality. Credit ratings are based largely on the ratings agency's analysis at the time of rating. The rating assigned to any particular security is not necessarily a reflection of the issuer's current financial condition and does not necessarily reflect its assessment of the volatility of a security's market value or of the liquidity of an investment in the security.

Insights & Analysis

Commentary

A Word On The Markets as of Mar 31, 2016

The U.S. municipal bond market generated a gain for the first quarter of 2016, with the Barclays Municipal Bond Index3 advancing 1.7% for the first three months of the year.

Muni performance was generally supported by strong demand from investors seeking haven from financial market volatility that persisted due to ongoing global growth concerns. Municipal mutual fund flows were consistently positive throughout the quarter, as investors sought the tax-free income, relative safety and diversification benefits of the municipal asset class. Municipal performance was further supported by declining U.S. Treasury yields, as the Federal Reserve signaled a slower path for interest rate hikes.

However, in a reversal of a 2015 trend, munis lagged U.S. Treasurys. As a result, intermediate- and long-term securities ended the period at comparatively attractive valuations. Meanwhile, the supply of munis declined a bit compared to the same three-month period in 2015. While overall supply was lower during the quarter, new money deals increased considerably compared to the same three-month period in 2015, potentially an early indication of renewed willingness for issuers to take on new debt to fund infrastructure and other projects.

Across the curve, yields moved somewhat proportionally lower, although intermediate-term yields declined most significantly. The continued low-rate environment fueled investors' appetite for higher-yielding securities. On a total return basis, longer-duration bonds outperformed shorter-duration securities, and lower-investment-grade munis outpaced many higher-quality securities. Meanwhile, below investment-grade bonds typically outperformed their higher-quality counterparts, primarily due to strength in the tobacco and transportation sectors.

Performance Summary 

Eaton Vance National Municipal Income Fund (the Fund) underperformed its benchmark, the Barclays Municipal Bond Index (the Index)3, at net asset value for the quarter.

  • The Fund's use of tender-option bonds (TOBS) contributed to its performance relative to the Index.
  • The Fund's overweighting to the industrial development revenue/pollution control revenue (IDR/PCR) sector aided relative performance, as did advantageous security selection among such securities.
  • A larger-than-Index exposure to zero coupon bonds, and positive security selection among bonds structured in that manner, was another plus.
  • Detracting from relative results was the fund's use of U.S. Treasury futures to hedge against potentially rising interest rates.
  • Security selection among resource recovery bonds also hurt performance versus the Index.

Contributors 

Factors contributing to the Fund's relative performance compared to the Index during the quarter:

  • Investments in TOBs helped the Fund's performance versus the Index. These securities act as a financing mechanism allowing investors to borrow at shorter-term rates and invest in higher-yielding bonds. The Fund's TOB holdings afforded it leverage to invest in more municipal bonds and, therefore, benefit more fully in the municipal market's first-quarter rally.
  • An overweighting to the IDR/PCR sector was additive, as the sector outpaced the broader muni market thanks in large measure to investors' appetite for comparatively high-yielding securities. Security selection in the sector also proved beneficial, as the Fund's holdings in the group generally outpaced similar securities in the Index.
  • Relative performance also was boosted by the Fund's overweighting in zero coupon bonds, which generally outpaced coupon-bearing bonds as long-term municipal yields declined during the quarter. Relative Fund performance was further boosted by positive security selection among zeros.

Detractors 

Factors detracting from the Fund's relative performance compared to the Index during the quarter:

  • The Fund's use of U.S. Treasury futures detracted from performance versus the Index. These contracts, used to hedge against rising interest rates, underperformed the Index as the value of such protection decreased during the quarter given the receding likelihood of an interest rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve. This Index is not hedged.
  • The Fund also was hurt by its positioning in the resource recovery sector, with Fund holdings in the group generally trailing similar securities in the Index.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

Late in the period, the Federal Reserve voiced concern about global growth and indicated it expects to make only two rate hikes in 2016, rather than the four rate hikes it had signaled earlier this year. We believe this "low-for-longer" backdrop should provide continued support for munis. We also expect that muni supply/demand conditions should remain favorable in coming quarters. Although improving state and local budgets could encourage issuers to take on new debt to fund infrastructure and other projects, we don't anticipate outsized new bond issuance this year. In addition, in an environment where economic growth is slow and financial market uncertainty persists, we believe demand for munis could remain strong.

Given our outlook for a continued low-rate environment, we believe tax-sensitive income seeking investors may continue to seek munis as a source of yield. Attractive valuations may be another lure. We continue to closely monitor events in Puerto Rico. Additional defaults on the island's debt will likely occur in the coming months. If a default by a Puerto Rico issuer disrupts the broader muni market, we would consider any price volatility as an opportunity.

If a counterparty is unable to honor its commitments, the value of Fund shares may decline and/or the Fund could experience delays in the return of collateral or other assets held by the counterparty. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.
