Emerging Asia Hit by Biggest Foreign Investor Exodus Since 2008

“A falling tide lowers all boats, it seems. Overseas funds are pulling out of six major Asian emerging equity markets at a pace unseen since the global financial crisis of 2008 — withdrawing $19 billion from India, Indonesia, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand so far this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.”


/ 2 /

Chasing Yield during ZIRP & NIRP Evidently Starved Human Brains of Oxygen. Now the Price Is Due

See Argentina’s 100-year dollar-bond and emerging-market “turmoil” as the Hot Money flees.
Let’s be clear: It’s not just Argentina. But Argentina is the most elegant example. The exodus of the hot money from emerging markets where cheap dollar-debts were used to fund pet projects and jack up leverage is – once again – in full swing. Cheap dollar-debt in emerging markets is an old sin that, like all old sins, is repeated endlessly. The outcome is always trouble. But during the act, it sure is a lot of fun for everyone.

The exodus of the hot money is even gripping the non-basket-case emerging economies of Asia where it’s causing the worst indigestion since 2008. Bloomberg:

Overseas funds are pulling out of six major Asian emerging equity markets at a pace unseen since the global financial crisis of 2008 – withdrawing $19 billion from India, Indonesia, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand so far this year.

While emerging markets shone in the first quarter, suggesting resilience to Federal Reserve tightening, that image has shattered over the past two months. With American money market funds now offering yields around 2% – where 10-year Treasuries were just last September – and prospects for more Fed hikes, the bar for heading into riskier assets has been raised.

“It’s not a great set-up for emerging markets,” James Sullivan, head of Asia ex-Japan equities research at JPMorgan Chase, told Bloomberg. “We’ve still only priced in about two thirds of the US rate increases we expect to see over the next 12 months. So the Fed is continuing to get more hawkish, but the market still hasn’t caught up.”

PRESSURE on China... & other Emerging Markets

CN:ShComp ... 3-yr :


India:Sensex ... 3-yr :


PH:PSEI ... 3-yr :


WARNING ! De-coupling Underway, as a strong US economy raises: inflation & interest rates

Well over a month ago we warned our followers of a “capital market shift” that was taking place in the global markets.  Nearly 3 months before that time, we warned that China's economy was about to enter a sustained economic downtrend cycle that could be dangerous to the global markets.  Today, we offer further evidence that the global markets are, in fact, shifting away from a price correlation to the US Majors and this move could be a warning sign that emerging markets and global markets could lead the world into an extended stagflation cycle.

Think about this for a minute, as we briefly discussed in our last article, what would happen if the US markets continued to rally on a strong economy with strong consumer participation while the US Fed was slow to raise interest rates while supporting a transitional shift of the US economy towards more manufacturing, technology, and expectations?  How would the world's economies react to such a shift given their current economic cycles and opportunities?  Would they be able to keep up with the US or would they start to trail further and further behind the US?

It is our belief that any continued strengthening of the US economy could, in fact, present real dangers for many of the world's economies simply because they may fall completely out of sync with the US stock market as their currencies, economies and consumer expectations fail to keep up with the US capabilities.  How all of this will play out over the next few months/years is our concern.  We know it will result in some tremendous trading opportunities for investors, but it could also create a new class of undervalued assets that could present some real long-term opportunity over the next 20+ years.

. . . What about India & SE Asia?  Our custom India index has shown relatively FLAT recent price activity compared to the SPY.  Overall, our opinion is that India has yet to completely diverge from the US majors and we urge all investors to be aware that any further price breakdown in this India custom index will warn that the Indian/SE Asian economies are losing their battle to stay correlated to the US markets going forward.  Right now, there is evidence of weakness in the India custom index – yet there are limited signs of a broken correlation to the US markets.  It certainly shows that this price disconnect could be happening and likely is happening – yet we don't have clear signs that this custom index is breaking to new lows (yet).

: SHcomp-Psei-Ukx :


Stagflation? Nearly always BAD for Stock markets

Inflation in the U.S. accelerated during May to the fastest pace in over six years, reports Bloomberg. The consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.2 percent from April and 2.8 percent from a year earlier. Average hourly wages, however, were unchanged from May 2017 when adjusted for inflation, which shows employees’ incomes were stagnate.  The trend of no growth in real purchasing power for employees cannot go on forever.  The first rounds of teacher strikes this past school year likely won’t be a onetime event or one sector of the economy shock.  Labor markets are tight.  Immigration labor is being choked off from participation in the future which should lead to increased Unit Labor Costs.  Cornerstone Macro notes that Unit Labor Costs accelerated sharply in the 1970s driven by a jump in compensation gains which led inflation and gold during that decade.

(From today's Viber chat):

+ THE RECENT RALLY may be STALLING... (see charts above) - But slide is NOT yet Comfirmed

+ Why is this important? Often property stocks (like ALI) may give a 6mo-12mo warning of a Top in Property prices. I have seen this occur in many markets...

It is looking like USA in 2006, and UK one year later in 2007. Similar set-up gave a false signal in HK

Short term Range: BPI-etc / MEG, SMPH, ALI & PSEI ... 10d :


+ Right now... I am wondering if BPI and the banks stocks will lead the PH stock market lower. That's what the charts seem to be hinting


+ On the property side, ALI , and especially SMPH seem to be the main ones to watch. If they both start sliding from here, then maybe it will be a big warning that PH property is peaking. Do you think this is possible??

UK Peak versus possible PH Property Peak?

In reaction to a post on my website about the UK property market:

First time since 1990 I've heard an agent utter the words 'the market is falling'.

That's an important marker.

They probably would not say that unless there was a lot of evidence

The main property bellwether, BDEV, peaked over 9 months ago

That's nicely within the window of "Developer stocks peak 6-12 months before the actual market"

BDEV / Barratt Dev'l ... update :


Compare : PH:ALI, Ayalaland

SMPH has a much stronger chart. SMPH is in a narrow sideways channel as of late.


SMDC is the Philippines. Not Ayala, Not Megaworld, Not DMCI, Not/Nor any other property developer.


It will be interesting to see which direction SMPH will follow now.

The European direction which is down, or the USA direction which is still up.

Time will tell.

SAFE So far...

The charts are up, and the stocks seem to be backing away from the possible downdraft.

PSEI : 7,804.0 : +171.77 : + 2.25%
Smph : P 38.50 : + 1.40  : + 3.77%
ALI --  : P 44.30 : + 1.20  : + 2.78%
MEG- : P   4.94 :  + 0.05  : + 1.02%
BPI -- : P 95.80 : + 4.70  : + 5.16% !!

I think these stocks may be the best bellwether stocks for the PH property market.  I included one bank, BPI, because they have a big property exposure thru financing Ayalaland properties. BDO … and maybe Metrobank might work also. I think I need at least one bank as a bellwether, Do you think one of the might be better than BPI as an "early warning"

PSEI has broken the (330 wk) MA which is generally supportive, and now it is working off the Oversold position,
staying near the bottom of the uptrend channel.  Unless it can rally up to above 7,500 soon,
it is likely to break the Upchannel near 6900 and slide lower.

Andrew Tan's ownership in Megaworld to go down to 50.15% after ...

5 days ago -
A disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange said the ownership in Megaworld of Tan's holding firm Alliance Global Group Inc. (AGI) will go down...

BUSINESSMAN Andrew Tan’s ownership in property developer Megaworld Corp. will slightly be diluted after the company sells part of its unissued common shares to certain investors that hold its perpetual bonds.

A disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange said the ownership in Megaworld of Tan’s holding firm Alliance Global Group Inc. (AGI) will go down to 50.15 percent from the previous 52.54 percent, while New Town Land Partners Inc.’s share in the developer will slide to 14.15 percent from 14.82 percent.

New Town is a unit of AGI.

Megaworld is issuing some 1.82 billion common shares to certain holders of the company’s $200-million senior perpetual bonds, which has a yield of 5.375 percent, that will also be listed at the PSE.  The shares were sold at P5.70 per share, or based on the company’s stock closing price on August 9. 

Megaworld share price was last traded at P4.84 apiece.

It did not disclose the identity of the buyers.

“Upon listing of the subscription shares in the Exchange, the securities shall be repurchased by way of payment by MEG to the holders of the securities at an agreed repurchase price. Said repurchase price shall be used by the holders of the securities to pay in cash the subscription price for the subscription shares,” Megaworld said in its disclosure.

After the sale, the foreign ownership of Megaworld will increase to 20.63 percent from the previous 16.84 percent, while its public float will be reduced to 31.87 percent from 33.67 percent.

Megaworld said its income for the first half of the year ending June grew 18 percent to P8.9 billion from P7.5 billion last year as all of its core businesses grew at a double-digit rate.

Revenues went up 18 percent for the period to P31.7 billion from P27 billion last year. Its residential business, rental and hotel operations, accounted for 63 percent, 26 percent and 4 percent of total revenues, respectively. The balance of 7 percent came from its noncore revenues, the company said.

/ 2 /

Megaworld’s $200-million senior perpetual notes (detail) carry an annual yield of 5.375%, and marked the company’s return to the offshore bond market since 2013. The bonds are listed on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Ltd.

. . . Megaworld has committed to spend P300 billion over the next five years to expand its residential, office, retail, and hotel projects. This year alone, it will spend P65 billion for expansion.
