Investment Talk - summary
Summary from Investment Talk by PMB Fund Managers :
Last 6 months : Developed market outperformed emerging aconomies.
Next 6 months, expect the opposite
Economic Outlook Malaysia
- +ve (high savings, sound fiscal policy, high disposable income) ...-ve due to debt ratio
52.3% (high vs other SEA economies)
- in a rising interest rate scenario - FD bank 3.15% but matches by inflation of 3.5% --->
negative real return of -0.35%
-good to move to stocks - div yield 3.8% + capital appreciation (stocks good hegde
Economic Outlook US, Japan, Europe
- generally more -ve due to high debt levels 94% US, Europe 70%
- Europe debt crisis still unresolved, bond holders refuse accept cuts in repayment.
- risk is that US and Europe borrow from outside, Japan although high budget deficit
borrow from its public sector
- possibly end of QE2 in USA may result in stable US Dollars (from more weakening)
and lower commodity prices and lower inflation globally.
- federal reserve (US central bank) still in easing mode @ 0.25% fed funds rate
- outlook economy seems stabilising after a period of tightening monetary policy, maybe
another 100 basis points rise to 7%.
- year 2010 underperform due to tightening policy (curb credit growth & property prices
- many Public mutual China funds underperformed @ 2010 also due to funds buying
China stocks listed on Hang Seng (HK) which are denominated in HK Dollars and
pegged to US Dollars. SO when translate to Ringgit --> exchange loss (paper loss)
- outlook 4 to 5 years : China have 12 yrs plan; last plan focus on private consumption.
Near term stocks expect to range trade until property and inflation normalise and Interest
rates allowed to stabilise.
(Inflation = excess fat/lemak so kena makan interest rates (pill kurus))
- expect next year, when Europe and maybe US start naik interest rates, money will flow
back to asia (and china)
Interest rate picture
- asia economies (incl China) have moved up interest rates since past 2 years
- Europe expected to start soon
-US when ?
Outlook Stocka Malaysia
- strong Ringgit
- Stabilisation of global financial crisis
- high div yield 3.8% vs FD 3.15% (12 months)
