BlackRock's bond guru says 'Fed needs to let the balance sheet grow'Rick Rieder, global chief investment officer of fixed income at BlackRock, said the Federal Reserve "needs to let the balance sheet grow" to prevent a recurrence of this week's spike in the overnight repurchasing rate. The so-called repo rate is the amount hedge funds and banks have to pay to borrow funds for a single day. Rieder made his comments at the CNBC Institutional Investor Delivering Alpha conference on Thursday. Investors say a larger portfolio by the central bank would boost bank reserves and alleviate the lack of cash in funding markets. At a Wednesday news conference, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said: "[It's] certainly possible that we will need to resume the organic growth of the balance sheet earlier than we thought. That's always been a possibility, and it certainly is now." Rieder said that the "tightness of financing markets is very important, people don't appreciate that." "The fact that [the surge in repo rates] played out aggressively as it did, it pushed the Fed to act," he said.

Jim Chanos announces short position in GrubHubLegendary short-seller Jim Chanos of Kynikos Associates on Thursday announced his fund has taken a short position in online food-delivery company GrubHub Inc. during the CNBC Institutional Investor Delivery Alpha conference, arguing that the company is "making almost no money per order, it's something like 15 cents." Chanos said that the company's financial position will only worsen from here as labor costs rise, in part due to new regulations that could classify gig-economy workers as employees rather than independent contractors. He also cited stiff competition from Uber Inc. , whose Uber Eats division has been growing revenue in the food-delivery business at a rapid pace. Chanos said that GrubHub does not have the financial "wherewithal" that Uber does and that competing with Uber "is like being locked in a cage with a psychopath with an ax." GrubHub shares fell 5.5% during Thursday trade.
