OppenheimerFunds’ Investment Grade Debt team believes that an investment-grade allocation should be the ballast for an overall portfolio by holding its value under stressed market conditions. The use of stop-outs plays an essential role in the team’s approach.

Stop-outs are predetermined buying or selling actions at specified levels that would potentially neutralize the effect of a drawdown on the portfolio’s value, thus helping remove emotion from investing. Our portfolio managers use stop-outs when the value of a security drifts away from the team’s fundamental view.
