Booming Philippine Markets Pin Hopes on Duterte for Next Rally

21.07.2019 18:00


(Bloomberg) -- When President Rodrigo Duterte delivers his annual speech to the nation on Monday, he’ll have plenty to brag about. The Philippine economy is among the fastest-growing in the world and markets are booming.But global risks are rising amid the prolonged trade war, and investors looking for the next leg of the market rally will scrutinize Duterte’s economic priorities as he embarks on the last half of his six-year term. Top on their minds are the $180 billion infrastructure program and new tax policies.“If Duterte hits the right notes, markets would have another leg to rally on," said Jonathan Ravelas, chief market strategist at BDO Unibank Inc. “There’s great interest in these measures to be prioritized to sustain the kind of growth rates we’ve been seeing.”Duterte is scheduled to speak before lawmakers at about 4 p.m. in Manila., after market close.PesoIf history is any guide, there’s a big chance the peso will rise the day after the State of the Nation Address. The currency has risen in nine of the last 10 years, posting an average gain of 0.15%.“We remain bullish on peso and we would like to sell the dollar-peso on rallies,” said Qi Gao, a Singapore-based currency strategist at Scotiabank. The currency is among those that will benefit the most as the Federal Reserve’s dovish stance lures inflows, he said.The peso closed at 51.04 per dollar on Friday, near its strongest level since January 2018. The currency’s next resistance is at the 50 pesos a dollar, Gao said.StocksFor stocks traders, it may be bad news first before good news, according to three decades of data. On the day of the president’s speech, the benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange Index retreated about two-thirds of the time, and posted an average loss of 0.4%.The gauge recovered more than half of the time the day after since Congress was restored in 1987, posting an average gain of 0.3%. The trend will likely hold and given the current market momentum, the index will hit 8,500 sooner than later, according to Jun Calaycay, head of research at Philstocks Financial Inc., who called the bull market a week before it happened.“The market is used to Duterte’s controversial antics," Calaycay said. “But should he start talking about policy, regulation and his legislative agenda then that would be a plus.”Local BondsPhilippine peso bonds are outperforming peers in emerging-markets as the central bank embarks on interest-rate cuts. Ten-year bond yields fell below 5% this month from more than 8% in October.“Relative to the rest of EM world, the Philippines is an island of stability, continuing a pace of high growth and foreign investment,” said Edwin Gutierrez, head of emerging-market sovereign debt at Aberdeen Standard Investments in London, who remains long on Philippine bonds.Meanwhile, the government’s push to cut corporate income taxes will attract more foreign investors while the move to tax foreigners working in the offshore gaming sector will generate additional annual revenue, said Alan Atienza, treasurer at Philippine Bank of Communications in Manila.--With assistance from Lilian Karunungan.To contact the reporters on this story: Ditas Lopez in Manila at [email protected];Ian Sayson in Manila at [email protected] contact the editors responsible for this story: Cecilia Yap at [email protected], ;Tomoko Yamazaki at [email protected], Karl Lester M.

Volodymyr Zelensky Ukrainian comedian-turned-president on course for election win

21.07.2019 15:42


Ukrainians gave their comedian-turned-president Volodymyr Zelensky a mandate to reboot the country’s politics on Sunday by handing his party a record score in parliamentary elections, exit polls showed. Zelensky’s Servant of the People party – named after the sitcom he starred in before his shock presidential win in April – took 43.9 percent of the vote in Sunday’s election, according to combined figures from three pollsters. It was the highest score in a parliamentary election for any party since Ukraine gained its independence with the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. The pro-Moscow Opposition Platform-For Life came second with 11.5 percent, the polls said. The exit polls only showed results for the half of seats assigned by party lists. The rest, in which members are directly elected in their districts, will be crucial in determining how Zelensky will try to form a government. Full, official results will be announced Monday. Without a majority, he will need to form a coalition and has indicated a preference for another new political force, the Golos (Voice) party of rock star Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. It took 6.3 percent, crossing the five percent threshold needed to enter parliament. The result is the culmination of a stunning turnaround in Ukrainian politics and will bring a host of newcomers into parliament and government. They will face a long list of challenges in a country heavily dependent on foreign aid and scarred by years of war with Russia-backed separatists. Speaking shortly after the exit polls were released, the 41-year-old Zelensky said his primary goals were to bring peace and tackle corruption. "Our main priorities – and I repeat this for every Ukrainian – are to end the war, return our prisoners and defeat the corruption that persists in Ukraine," he said at his party’s election headquarters. Zelensky’s victory in April was seen as a rejection of the country’s traditional elite for failing to end the separatist conflict, revive the economy or tackle widespread graft. Former president Petro Poroshenko’s European Solidarity party and former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko’s party Batkivshyna ("Fatherland") also entered parliament with 8.9 and 7.6 percent of the vote, according to the exit polls. Faced with a hostile parliament after his win, Zelensky quickly called snap elections and vowed to bring in a new generation of politicians to lead the country. Zelensky said after the exit polls that he would "be pleased to invite Mr. Vakarchuk for talks" on forming a coalition. He also said he was looking for a "new face and a specialist in the economy" to become the next prime minister. Vakarchuk, the 44-year-old lead vocalist of one of Ukraine’s most successful rock bands, Okean Elzy, only founded his party in May. He said after the exit polls that it was "too early" to talk about the specifics of a coalition but that he was "ready for talks with other political forces that have the same principles as us".

Many voters seemed excited by the prospect of new political forces coming to power. Kateryna, a 31-year-old Kiev woman on maternity leave, said she cast her vote for Vakarchuk because she "believes in his young intelligent team". "It is the first time I am voting for someone because I like them, not because I have to choose the lesser evil," she said. More than 20 parties fielded candidates. The strong score for the Opposition Platform-For Life was expected as opinion polls had consistently shown the party in second place. One of the party’s top candidates, Viktor Medvedchuk, is close to Vladimir Putin, claiming the Russian president is his daughter’s godfather. The two met for talks in Russia just days before the vote. More than 13,000 people have been killed since the conflict with Moscow-backed separatists erupted in eastern Ukraine in 2014. Sporadic fighting continues along the frontlines, with four Ukrainian soldiers killed by sniper fire and mine blasts since Friday. Only 424 of the 450 seats in Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, will be filled this election, as the rest represent Crimea, annexed by Russia in 2014, or territories controlled by separatists. Of the seats being filled, 225 members are elected from nationwide party lists, while the rest are directly elected in their districts.
