Commentary 31/01/2017

The New Year opened under better auspices than 2016. Leading financial markets closed in neutral to positive territory, with the exception of European government bonds. Rising numbers on the PMI indices confirm the improvement in business and consumer confidence, serving to get cyclical stocks back into the headlines. On the corporate side, the quarterly reporting season is in full swing. It got off to a good start with positive growth in all regions and most companies publishing better-than-expected numbers. Investment grade spreads narrowed slightly during January, despite the rising sovereign yields, a widening core-periphery spread, and particularly high levels of primary issuance. The weakness of European sovereign bonds was very marked this month. The market was surprised by a number of euro zone economic indicators (notably inflation) which were greater than expected, and by uncertainties over the political future of Europe. The corporate investment grade market outperformed sovereign debt, but could nevertheless not help being pulled down by the general downtrend. Lower-rated credit outperformed, while financial bonds outperformed industrials. On the European credit market, too, 2017 started on a constructive note and performed well in January. Credit has been supported by strong technical factors, high subscription rates for mutual funds, and the resumption of ECB repurchasing at a sustained pace after the year-end slowdown, hitting a weekly average of €1.8 billion. In this environment, credit indices are trading at relatively tight levels, with the iTraxx Crossover at 300 bps, relatively unchanged over the month. The primary market for high yields was not as dynamic as expected, working partly to the benefit of the syndicated loan market. However, the so-called scarcity of new issues, a very significant additional technical factor, has served to sustain credit risk premiums on the secondary market. Among the headlines affecting the high yield market this month was Dieselgate. This is still a reality and now impacting Fiat Chrysler, accused by the US Environmental Protection Agency of concealing software leading to excessive emission of pollutants, as well as Renault, with the opening of a judicial investigation in France based on suspicions that it cheated on emissions, too. Meanwhile, the European Commission has approved the Areva rescue plan (with a €4.5 billion injection from the French state) under a number of conditions, and in particular that Areva's reactor business be sold off. M&A news has been plentiful: in addition to Essilor and Luxotica's merger between equals, Safran has announced its acquisition of Zodiac Aerospace. The stock market battle over Lavendon has finally come to an end, with Loxam set to buy Lavendon for nearly €720 million, as TVH bows out.

(1) The rating grades the funds on a scale from 1 to 7. This rating system is based on the average fluctuations of the net asset value over the past five years. It corresponds to the variation range of the portfolio upwards and downwards. If the net asset value is less than 5 years old, the rating is determined by other regulatory calculation methods. Historical data such as those used to calculate the rating may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile. The current category is neither a guarantee nor an objective. Category 1 does not signify a risk-free investment.
