The article focuses on the report of UBS Financial Services Inc. regarding the impact of baby boomers' retirement on bond yields in the U.S. According to analyst Matt Fabian, retired investors are inclined to reallocate assets to fixed income and away from equity investments. Other factors that influence yields' stable-to-lower status in the long run is attributed to upward pressure on federal and state tax rates and improvements on municipal credit quality.
