NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Whenever I visit a big mutual fund or brokerage company, it's easy to spot who works on the fixed income (bonds) side of the house and who works on the equities (stocks) side of the house. To put it bluntly, the bond guys (and gals) are less emotional than their brethren working equities.Perhaps this is as it should be. After all, the pricing of bonds logically follows changes in interest rates, coupled with an analysis of cashflow to service the debt. A company can either pay its debts or it can't. Stock jockeys on the other hand pair their fundamental analysis with squishy terms like "momentum," and "sentiment" and "resistance levels."
