US Dollar in Focus as Debt Ceiling Deadline Looms

A government shutdown in the US looms if lawmakers cannot find agreement - here's a look at what it might mean for the Dollar.
The Dollar faces a testing period ahead as lawmakers in Washington turn their attention to the annual debt ceiling debacle which, if unresolved, could see the US government forced to shut down as early as next week.
A government shutdown is the process the Executive Branch must enter into when Congress and the President fail to pass emergency legislation to fund government operations and agencies.
A temporary extension to the debt limit, agreed in September, is set to expire Friday, 8 December. Extraordinary measures, such as a government shutdown, could enable the Treasury to meet its obligations for several months.
Congressional Budget Office staff estimated in November that these measures could see the Treasury through until early April, meaning fears of a technical default by the United States should remain benign until then.
A government shutdown is politically contentious as it almost always means the furlough of federal workers. In the December month, right ahead of Christmas, this can be costly for lawmakers who will face mid-term elections in 2018.

perterpan Petron Malaysia Refining and Marketing Berhad - Hit by Margin Compression
Author: PublicInvest | Publish date: Fri, 23 Feb 2018, 09:46 AM

Petron Malaysia Refining and Marketing Berhad (Petron) recorded a full year FY17 net profit of RM341.8m (+44.8% YoY), excluding exceptional items amounting to RM65.6m owing to compulsory divestment of service stations. The lower-than-expected net profit achievement, meeting only 79% of our and consensus 90% full-year estimates, was the result of margin compression following the faster rise in crude oil prices (cost of goods) against product prices (sales). Operating margin halved to 3.7 % in 4QFY17 against 7.8% for the same period a year ago. The company declared RM0.25 dividend per share for FY17 meanwhile, higher than FY16’s of RM0.22, though in line with our expectation. In the short-term, oil price volatility may persist but in the long run, the outlook on oil prices remains sanguine driven by the re-acceleration of global economy. This will be led by the improving prospects of major economies and hence the pickup in industrialization activities, which in turn will underpin the recovery of demand for oil. We remain positive on the prospects of Petron and reaffirm our Outperform target on Petron with a target price of RM13.62, suggesting a potential upside of 13.5%.

Higher 4QFY17 revenue (+23.6% YoY) driven by higher global oil prices and volume sold. Global oil prices in 4QFY17, using Brent prices as a benchmark, recorded a 24.4% YoY jump to USD61 per barrel. Petron also registered higher sales volume of 9.1 million (+9.6% YoY) barrels for the quarter, owing to better economic conditions and steady increase in the number of petrol stations.
Net profit for 4QFY17 dropped 8.6% YoY to RM101.8m despite the 23.6% increase in revenue. Operating margins took a hit as it dipped to 3.7% in the quarter (4QFY16: 7.8%), no thanks to the faster increase in crude oil prices compared to product prices, leading to compressions.
Outlook. Despite the steady rise in oil prices, the company remains vigilant and cognizant of the persistent volatilities resulting from continued imbalances in oil supply and demand. We believe the company will continue to improve their efficiency as a natural defense against this however. Additionally, we foresee the company will continue to leverage on firmer demand as a result of steady economic conditions which underpins their drive to add more petrol stations in the near future.

RedEagle KUALA LUMPUR: The steps taken by the new Pakatan Harapan government to remove political uncertainty, including the setting up of the Council of Eminent Persons, will see more fund flowing into the country.

Aberdeen Asset Management Chief Executive Officer Martin Gilbert said the country's economic environment is positive compared with the situation before the recently concluded 14th General Election.

"Generally, it is good news. Following the establishment of the council, which includes the former Bank Negara Malaysia governor, both foreign and local fund managers are reassured of a stable economy," he told reporters after the meeting between Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz and 180 fund managers here today.

Gilbert said the meeting was very useful with the world's longest serving central bank governor giving her input on the current economic issues in Malaysia, plans going forward and her role in the council.

"With her knowledge of the financial markets, I think this will make global asset managers look more closely at Malaysia going forward," he said.

Asked on rating agencies' concern on Malaysia's ability to fill the revenue gap without the Goods and Services Tax, he said these agencies would have to look at the economy as a whole.

"The great thing for Malaysia is that all of the (economic) dynamics and growth are good.

"However, we will have to wait for the government's plans," he added.

Aberdeen Asset Management has US$800 billion (US$1 = RM3.95) assets under management, with US$5 billion invested in Malaysia. -- BERNAMA

masterus Dr M: Govt looking to replace ringgit notes with new ones

PETALING JAYA: The government is looking to replace the current currency notes with new ones to combat corruption.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said in an interview with Channel NewsAsia that there could be a change in the currency or go cashless to combat corruption.

“It’s not an easy thing because when you want to replace the currency, you must know how much currency is in circulation... because we have to replace what is in circulation and that is a very big amount,” he said.

“If you were to replace, you need to print huge amounts of paper money and that is not a decision that one makes lightly.
