Chinese equities may underperform even if Evergrande fears fade

Even if concerns about potential spill-overs to China’s financial system from troubles at Evergrande fade, we still expect Chinese equities to underperform equities elsewhere over the next two years.

What to make of the stock market sell-off

Although we think that there may be some further rotation away from “growth” stocks over the next few years, as Treasury yields rise, we doubt the S&P 500 will have an awful year.

We think the Turkish lira’s stability will prove short-lived

For the first time in several months, the lira remained subdued following an interest rate announcement from Turkey’s central bank, perhaps as the decision to keep rates on hold was widely anticipated. We expect further reductions of the one-week repo rate later this year, which leads us to think that the lira will weaken against the US dollar in 2022.

We think the sell-off in E-Z government bonds has further to run

While the yield of 10-year Bunds has risen a long way recently, and is now above zero for the first time since before the onset of the pandemic, we think it will increase further still. We also expect long-dated government bond yields to rise further in the euro-zone periphery, and by more than in Germany.

A deeper dive into Chinese equities’ sectoral performance

While financials and real estate have been among the worst-performing sectors in the MSCI China Index this year we think that there may be scope for them, as well as the energy sector, to outperform the materials and health care sectors and “technology” sectors over the next two years. This is because the dismal prospects for earnings in financials, real estate and energy already appear to be reflected in current market prices, whereas expectations for earnings in other sectors still seem too upbeat to us.

The German election & the outlook for E-Z bonds & the euro

We think that regardless of which coalition ends up governing Germany in the aftermath of the general election, there won’t be a big shift in fiscal policy or Germany’s attitude towards European integration. Accordingly, we remain comfortable with our view that government bond yields in the euro-zone will rise more slowly than in the US and weigh on the euro/dollar exchange rate between now and the end of 2022.

A few thoughts on the FOMC meeting and Treasuries

We doubt that the Fed will spring a surprise today with its communications on tapering or by revising the timing of lift-off in its interest rate projections. But there is considerable uncertainty regarding the Fed’s new projections for interest rates in 2024.  Regardless of what they show, we would still expect long-dated Treasuries to rise over the coming years.
