US dollar losing its lustre

NEW YORK: In times of uncertainty or crisis, investors typically take refuge in safe options like the Swiss franc, gold or the US dollar, but under President Donald Trump the greenback has lost its lustre, especially to the euro. After this week’s North Korean missile launch over Japan raised fears it could trigger a major conflict, the single European currency rose above the symbolic threshold of $1.2 for the first time since January 2015. “The dollar and US Treasuries are typically safe haven assets. But no one really wants to own the dollar right now,” said Brad Bechtel, head of foreign exchange trading at Jefferies. US monetary policy also plays a role in the dollar’s relative value as do comments – or the absence thereof – from central bankers.

We are maintaining our FY17 and FY18 forecast.

We are pleased to see the Group's operation continues to improve, especially with the strong growth in NII. While asset quality remains our concern, it is allayed by the fact that we believe that it is well contained. We believe that with the operation improving further in Indonesia, there is still some potential upside to the stock. As such, we are maintaining our BUY call with unchanged TP of RM10.30, based on PB multiple of 1.4x. Although, the expected total returns is slightly below our threshold of +15%, we are making an exception as in our opinion, the Group's earnings recovery have not been fully priced in. Additionally, a dividend yield of +5.8% should limit any potential downside.

shortinvestor77 KUALA LUMPUR: The local banking sector is expected to see its earnings grow 10.6 per cent this year, according to Affin Hwang Capital.

This will ease to a more modest 38 per cent next year before slightly rising 4.1 per cent in 2019, the firm said in a report today.

Affin Hwang Capital said favourable domestic demographic trends (driving consumption and housing needs), ample infrastructure projects in the pipeline and accommodative monetary policy are supportive reasons for the growth in earnings.

“The sector’s overall valuation in 2017 still appears attractive at a 1.35 times price to book value multiple (on a forward basis) against the past 10-year average of 1.6x and the past five-year average of 1.5x,” it added.

Key risks for the sector include new bad loan formation, net interest margin compression, higher funding costs, weaker loan growth and much higher provisions on FRS 9 (financial reporting standards) adoption.

Affin Hwang Capital’s top picks are AMMB Holdings Bhd, Public bank Bhd and Malayan Banking Bhd.

The firm upgraded its rating on AMMB from “hold” to “buy” with a price target of RM5.20 (based on 0.9x P/BV on calendar year 2018). “We believe the recent selling of the stock is unjustified (currently trading at 0.77x P/BV versus the sector at 1.35x), subsequent to the aborted merger plan with RHB Bank Bhd,” it added.

KUALA LUMPUR: AmInvestment Research is maintaining its positive view on the ringgit due to six factors which include the stronger economic growth, healthy inflow of foreign funds into the equities market and easing inflation pressure.

It said on Tuesday its positive outlook was firstly, the better-than-expected 1Q and 2Q GDP growth of 5.5% and 5.8%.

The higher GDP growth has prompted it to revise upwards its full year 2017 GDP to between 5.7% and 5.9% supported by strong exports and complement with domestic activities;

Secondly, it also noted the healthy inflow of funds into the equity market with net inflow year-to-date around RM10.7bil after registering net outflow for three consecutive years while foreign holdings in Malaysian Government Securities (MGS) at 40.32% which is equivalent to RM150.9bil.

Thirdly, it expects inflation pressure to ease in 2H2017 to average around 3.0%-3.3% from 4.1% in 1H2017 bringing the full year average to around 3.5%-3.7% as a result of lower cost push pressures with a more stable fuel price.

Fourthly, the research house envisages the current negative real returns could potentially fade away with the Overnight Policy Rate expected to stay unchanged at 3% as inflation pressure eases.

“Still we maintain a 45% chance for a rate hike by 25bps in 4Q2017 should demand pull inflation picks up strongly while supporting GDP,” it said.

Fifthly, the onshore sentiments on the ringgit has improved supported with strong external reserves which has surpassed the US$100bil mark, now is at US$100.5bil.

As for the sixth factor, it expects the continued weakening pressure on the US dollar index (DXY) index due to the ongoing sentiments in the US. We expect the DXY index to be around 90-91 in 2017.

The DXY is an index (or measure) of the value of the dollar relative to a basket of foreign currencies.

“From our estimates, it shows more room for the ringgit to strengthen. Our fair value for the ringgit is around 3.95 against the US$. However, our year-end target for ringgit is 4.12 while our full year average is 4.31.to 4.33,” it said.

masterus KUALA LUMPUR: The ringgit is expected to continue to strengthen against the US dollar, with an economist predicting it may even hit RM4 to a US dollar at the end of the year.
The optimism is based on the good growth in trade and the gross domestic product (GDP). The economy achieved a 5.8% growth in April-June.
The Malaysian Reserve quoted Sunway University Business School economics Professor Dr Yeah Kim Leng as saying: “The ringgit has been trading higher these days due to the above-expectations performance of Malaysia’s economy, including the growth in trade and GDP.
“Since we have already reached RM4.19 in early September, I would say that it is possible for the ringgit to reach around RM4.10 to RM4 in December.”

masterus China Prepares Sale of $2 Billion in U.S.-Dollar Bonds

The government is preparing to sell $2 billion in bonds this month, and investment banks are pitching for a role in the deal, according to bankers in Hong Kong.

While the planned sale isn't large and is mostly symbolic, it would be China's biggest-ever U.S.-dollar bond sale and its first since October 2004, when the country raised a total of about $1.7 billion from selling dollar- and euro-denominated bonds that matured in five and 10 years.

China's Ministry of Finance didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

China has about $200 million in outstanding U.S.-dollar sovereign-debt issues that it is scheduled to pay off in 2027 and 2096, and those bonds yield about 3.3% and 4% respectively, according to research firm CreditSights. The country issued several global bonds in the 1990s, including a 100-year $100 million bond in 1996 with a 9% coupon.

2. Debt running down fast
3. Business growing with good marketing strategy
4. Proven quality management (vs HY's yet to be tested)
5. Dividend payout (HY not paying)

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile across Japan, its second such provocative move in weeks.
South Korea's military said the missile reached an estimated altitude of about 770km (478 miles) and travelled 3,700km before landing in the sea off Hokkaido.
Japan's PM Shinzo Abe said his country would "never tolerate" North Korea's dangerous actions.
"If North Korea continues to walk down this path, it has no bright future," he said in a statement.

masterus Russian seaports
Published time: 19 Sep 2017 | 13:41 GMT
Novorossiysk commercial sea port © Vladimir Astapkovich
Sputnik /
Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed the government to approve legislation making the ruble the main currency of exchange at all Russian seaports by next year, according to the Kremlin website.

To protect the interests of stevedoring companies with foreign currency obligations, the government was instructed to set a transition period before switching to ruble settlements.

According to the head of Russian antitrust watchdog FAS Igor Artemyev, many services in Russian seaports are still priced in US dollars, even though such ports are state-owned.

The proposal to switch port tariffs to rubles was first proposed by the president a year and a half ago. The idea was not embraced by large transport companies, which would like to keep revenues in dollars and other foreign currencies because of fluctuations in the ruble.

Artemyev said the decision will force foreigners to buy Russian currency, which is good for the ruble.

In 2016, his agency filed several lawsuits against the largest Russian port group NMTP. According to FAS, the group of companies set tariffs for transshipment in dollars and raised tariffs from January 2015 "without objective grounds."

The watchdog ruled that NMTP abused its dominant position in the market and imposed a 9.74 billion rubles fine, or about $165 million at the current exchange rate. The decision was overturned by a court in Moscow in July this year.
