A world apart

Oct 29th 2009 | DELHI
From The Economist print edition

India is caught in two minds about financial globalisation


Eyevine
THE world is divided into two, according to Shachindra Nath, chief operating officer of Religare Enterprises, an Indian financial firm. On one side of the divide is a world with “cash but no opportunities”; on the other, a world with “no money, just opportunities.” In October Religare announced its ambition to shepherd money across this divide, by creating an “emerging-market investment bank”. The bank will be run from London by Martin Newson, a former head of global equities at Dresdner Kleinwort.
Religare will start small, attaching itself to growing companies and expanding with them. As India’s companies go global, finding customers and buying companies abroad, they will want their banks to be global too, Mr Newson argues. His bank may still lack manpower (it has about 80 bankers) and experience (last year, it completed only two deals in its home market), but Mr Newson applauds India’s “get-up-and-go, ‘let’s attack’ attitude”.
He would find a quite different mindset at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the country’s central bank, which polices the flow of money across India’s borders and keeps tabs on the foreign adventures of the country’s financial firms. The RBI has a defensive approach to financial globalisation. The laws of economic gravity suggest capital should flow from where it is abundant to where it is scarce. But, the RBI fears, that flow can overwhelm an economy.
In 2007, for example, it tried to restrain a vigorous inflow of capital by making it harder for foreigners to play India’s booming stockmarket and by tightening limits on corporate borrowing abroad. When capital flows abruptly reversed in 2008, it eased these limits. Now that foreigners are again flocking to India’s stockmarket (see chart), capital inflows are once more playing on the RBI’s mind. At the IMF’s annual meetings in October, the RBI’s governor worried that if he had to raise interest rates earlier than other economies, the gap in returns might attract more foreign money. At the RBI’s latest meeting on October 27th, he kept rates on hold.

Despite these concerns, India is steadily becoming more financially stitched in to the rest of the world. Its foreign assets and liabilities add up to over 60% of GDP. In the 1990s that ratio was only about 40%. It has risen partly because India’s own companies are eager to acquire foreign firms. In March 2009 India’s stock of direct investment abroad was worth over $67 billion, more than twice the figure in March 2007.
As India’s companies straddle borders, capital controls become harder to police. Foreign affiliates can transfer money into India disguised as a payment for services provided by their parent company. But if controls don’t necessarily stop Indian multinationals raising money, they do stop India’s financial system from meeting these firms’ requirements. For example, India prohibits companies from listing their shares at home and on a foreign exchange. This ban was one reason, if hardly the only one, why Bharti Airtel, India’s biggest mobile-phone company, was unable to merge in September with MTN of South Africa.
A 2007 report commissioned by the government to assess Mumbai’s prospects of becoming an international financial centre argued that India has a comparative advantage in financial services, like the one it has in information technology. India, after all, has a common-law legal tradition and a stockmarket that is 130 years old. Many bankers working in London, Dubai and Singapore have their roots in India. Religare is hoping to hire a few of them.
It is not the only Indian financial firm with ambitions abroad. Indian banks have 141 foreign branches and 21 subsidiaries. Of the new private-sector banks, ICICI bank has the most foreign outposts. Its willingness to dabble beyond its borders marked it out for suspicion when crisis struck and doubts about its foreign exposures grew.
In November 2008 the RBI had to lend foreign currencies to Indian banks to help them meet the obligations of their foreign branches. It is now determined to monitor their activities more closely. Banks say “we know how to manage our stuff, there are no government guarantees, so why are you bothered?” says Rakesh Mohan, a former deputy governor of the RBI. But “when push comes to shove, you always have to be bothered.”
The RBI’s prudence was justified by events. But it has its costs. By reining in its domestic banks, it prevents them from serving the global needs of India’s companies. Tata Steel, for example, bought Corus with loans from banks in London, not Mumbai. The RBI worries about the foreign borrowing of Indian firms even as it makes it impossible for them to find necessary finance from domestic providers.
Mr Mohan thinks the RBI’s approach is on the right side of history. He points out that the regulatory reforms the G20 now recommends are for the most part policies that the RBI was already pursuing. This includes its willingness to supervise the foreign subsidiaries of Indian banks. Was India ahead of the curve? “Maybe accidentally”, he laughs.
But as more big Indian firms become multinational companies, it will be harder for politicians to resist the demands for a freer flow of finance. “It’s one thing for India to impose restrictions upon foreign multinationals like Enron or IBM,” says Ajay Shah of the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy, “but it’s harder for the Indian government to hobble its own multinationals. I think this is a qualitative change.” Indian companies are too ambitious to confine themselves to their borders. Likewise, India itself is too big a prize for foreign capitalists to ignore. Money has a way of finding opportunity.

A bit late, Barrick aims for 'full leverage' to gold price

Gold has been going up for 10 years and they're still short 2 million ounces.

Barrick Gold Posts US$5.4 Billion Net loss on Windup of Gold Hedging Program
By Kristine Owram
The Canadian Press
via CanadianBusiness.com
Thursday, October 29, 2009
http://www.canadianbusiness.com/markets/market_news/article.jsp?content=...
TORONTO -- Barrick Gold Corp. lost US$5.4 billion in the third quarter due to the windup of its gold hedging program, but the big miner said this move, as well as several low-cost projects set to come online in the next few years, position it to prosper from a rising gold price.
"Our production will be higher next year and at lower costs. We have a world-class pipeline of projects under construction and a number of additional projects in various phases of feasibility studies," Barrick president and CEO Aaron Regent said on a conference call Thursday.
"Our company structure has been simplified with the elimination of the hedge book, we have a strong financial position to support our operations and projects, and finally we have a number of competitive advantages which we believe will continue to pay dividends in the future," he added.
The market agreed, sending Barrick's shares up by $2.62 or 7.1 per cent to $39.66 in Thursday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The Toronto-based gold miner, which reports in U.S. dollars, said its quarterly loss included a non-cash accounting charge of $5.7 billion related to its hedging program.
Adjusting for the accounting charge, Barrick had a profit of $473 million or 54 cents per share, up 17 per cent from $404 million or 46 cents per share last year.
Barrick is the world's biggest gold company, with third-quarter sales of nearly $2.1 billion in the third quarter -- up from just under $1.9 billion last year.
Regent said Barrick took several steps during the quarter to improve the company's performance and strategic positioning going forward.
That included plans to eliminate its gold hedging program within 12 months.
The hedging program, which was designed to lock in prices for future sales to provide insurance against a drop in gold prices, has become a drag for Barrick. The hedges prevented Barrick from taking full advantage of the rising price of bullion, which has recently been trading above US$1,000 an ounce.
"We made this decision to gain full leverage to the gold price on all future production based on an increasingly positive outlook for gold," said Barrick chief financial officer Jamie Sokalsky.
Sokalsky said the company has so far raised a total of $5.1 billion by issuing equities and long-term debt and as of Wednesday had eliminated 1.1 million ounces of gold hedges, or approximately one-third of its hedged position.
"By eliminating the gold hedge book, the company will fully participate in future gold price movements," Sokalsky said.
"Our overall leverage is reduced and the capital structure is simplified and strengthened. And we know that investors prefer fully unhedged producers and with this plan we are now better aligned with those interests."
Barrick said its average realized gold price for the quarter was $971 per ounce, or $11 higher than the average spot price of $960 per ounce.
And Regent said he expects the price of gold to continue to rise due to the current macroeconomic environment.
"Low interest rates, the increase in the money supply and current and future government deficits is continuing to put pressure on global currencies and is increasing the risk of significant inflation in the future. This has resulted in an increased demand for gold by investors around the world," he said.
"While gold prices appear high in nominal terms, in real terms they are still 50 per cent below the peak levels realized in 1980, and from an industry perspective mine supply continues to decline and we expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future," he added.
Barrick produced 1.90 million ounces of gold in the quarter at total cash costs of $456 per ounce, or net cash costs of $371 per ounce after applying credits from sales of non-gold metals such as copper and silver that are mined along with the gold.
Revenues fell short of analyst expectations but Barrick's adjusted earnings were above a consensus estimate compiled by Thomson Reuters.
On average, analysts had called for $2.147 billion in revenue and 47 cents per share before unusual items such as the charge for the hedging program.
Barrick said it is on track with its full-year production guidance of 7.2 million to 7.6 million ounces of gold at total cash costs of $450 to $475 per ounce or net cash costs of $360 to $385 per ounce.
The company expects production in 2010 to grow to between 7.7 million and 8.1 million ounces of gold at lower cash costs than this year.
Barrick has several low-cost projects positioned to come online over the next five years, including Cortez Hills in Nevada, expected to begin production in the first quarter of 2010; Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic, expected to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2011; Pascua-Lama on the border between Argentina and Chile, expected to begin production in the first quarter of 2013; and Buzwagi in Tanzania, which began production in May and is on track to produce 200,000 ounces this year.

Foreign direct investment

Overtaking

Oct 28th 2009
From Economist.com

Emerging economies get more foreign direct investment than developed ones


FOREIGN direct investment inflows will barely reach $1 trillion in 2009, a decline of more than half since 2007, predicts the Economist Intelligence Unit, a sister company to The Economist. And for the first time emerging economies will attract more than half of the global total. Flows to poorer economies, especially Asian ones, are proving more resilient than flows to rich economies which are suffering the worst recession in several decades.
AP

Recession Over? Not with 21 % unemployment

There is articcle written by  Ilece Glink , starting as follows:
How bad is the economy? Despite what you see going on with the stock market, and the continuing talk about profits and green shoots, it’s pretty bad.
The undersigned commented this article under the name Fernando56
On CBS MoneyWatch. Stating the following::

"All depends who manage the statistics and which method am I using to refuse what the reality tells me. It is like, state that the discount rate is a leader and not a follower of market interest rates. The reason is that under no interference from monetary authorities, The Federal Reserve System should seek to discouraging banks from using the discount window, by setting the discount rate at level in line or a little bit higher than the alternative of treasury bill and Federal funds rates (See: The Stock Market Logic, Norman Fosback, page16).

The point still based upon the credibility of those who direct the surveys, the way they are done , the methodology used and finally if the outcome released correspond to the investigation real outcome. With this high volatility in the markets, I honestly  doubt that the recovery is underway."

New Video Looks at S&P Potential Top

There is compelling evidence that we may have seen a top in the S&P index. In my new short video, I show you the evidence that I have found which may point to the fact that we are going to see a correction in this index.
While the S&P index needs to put in more work to create a major top, there are early signs that this may be happening. I think when you watch this video you will come to the same conclusion as I did in regards to this market.

Market Watch?s top stories of the week

MarketWatch's top stories of the week

By MarketWatch

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- U.S. stocks had a roller coaster end to the week, falling enough on Friday to undo healthy gains from earlier in the week. The main driver in the market has been earnings and even though a lot of companies are beating analyst expectations with ease, very few are reporting results that show any true strength.

Friday, a lot of the decline was attributed to a drop in oil and other commodities, which was triggered by a rise in the dollar. Stocks in the energy, materials and industrials sectors led the way lower.

On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) fell 109.13 points or 1.1% to close at 9,972.18. For the week the index fell 0.2%. The Nasdaq Composite Index (.COMP) dropped 10.82 points or 0.5% to close at 2,154.47 on Friday and logged a weekly decline of 0.1%. The broader Standard & Poor's 500 Index (.SPX) fell 13.31 points or 1.2% on the day to close at 1,079.60 for a weekly loss of 0.7%.

Check out MarketWatch over the weekend for all the news you need to keep up. Our weekend features include a look at how to use exchange traded funds to invest in oil and our stockpicker of the quarter. We'll also have a look at commercial real estate trends in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, please take a moment to view our weekly preview videos.

 Asia's Week Ahead: Awaiting Data Flood

 Europe Week Ahead: Oil Majors and SAP in Focus

-- Christopher Noble , assistant managing editor

Predictions of a pullback

U.S. stocks staged a sharp late-session drop in the last 40 minutes of trade Wednesday, erasing a day of modest gains. That move dovetailed with calls from analysts saying equities' seven-month climb left the market vulnerable for a fall. Even analysts who believe the market will continue its climb as the year wraps up said a pullback was due. Read more about their predictions .

Strength in the euro

Europe's single currency traded above the $1.50 level versus the U.S. dollar for the first time in 14 months Wednesday, breaking through an important psychological barrier that will create added heartburn for euro-zone officials worried the strengthening currency will crimp opportunities for an export-led economic recovery. Read more about the euro's move .

Currency 'death spiral'

Greenlight Capital is betting on the possibility of a major currency collapse and a surge in interest rates, the hedge-fund firm's manager David Einhorn said, citing ballooning government deficits in some of the world's most developed countries. Greenlight has been buying physical gold this year because Einhorn is concerned that efforts to save the financial system and fuel economic recovery are undermining the value of such currencies as the U.S. dollar. Read more about his thesis .

Cause for crisis

 See video The prospect of global imbalances, shorthand for the lopsided nature of a world economy in which the U.S. borrows and Asian countries save, is back on policymakers' watch list. Only this time, government officials still cleaning up the past two years' financial and economic crisis have fresh examples of what can happen when the U.S. and other developed economies save little and borrow lots from savings-rich export nations such as China. Read what Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said on the matter .

Uncharted waters

One of the biggest IPO stories of the year has been China-based water-treatment-equipment company Duoyuan Global Water, whose success reflects a growing desire among global investors to hold specialized commodities, in particular a commodity -- water. For investors who want to dip into the play, there seven actively managed and exchange-traded funds to choose from, all of which were started in the past two years. Read more about them .

Apple's earnings climb

Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) nearly posted an all-time closing high Tuesday, one day after the company posted strong fourth-quarter results that included a 46% rise in earnings due to better-than-expected sales of Mac computers, iPhones and iPods. Whatever concerns about the economy remain, over the past three months, there seemed to be little impact on Apple's largely consumer-driven business. Read more about Apple's results.

Altitude for Amazon

Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) surged to a new all-time high Friday morning after the online retailer reported a 69% jump in third-quarter earnings and a better-than-expected forecast for the current quarter. A pair of brokers upgraded Amazon before the opening bell, while several others lifted their price targets following what many termed as blowout results for the third quarter. The company beat Wall Street's targets in both earnings and revenue and gave a fourth-quarter forecast that topped expectations as well. Read about Amazon's results .

Valuing Fannie and Freddie

Analysts at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods said this week that the common shares of Fannie Mae (FNM) and Freddie Mac (FRE) are likely worthless, even if the troubled mortgage-finance giants end up being recapitalized by the banking industry. KBW analysts led by Bose George downgraded shares of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to underperform from market perform and cut their price target on both stocks to zero from $1. Read about their rationale .

Ending incentives

The Federal Reserve moved this week to get banks to remove incentive compensation packages that might put the institution at risk. If the pay package is found to create too much risk for the bank, under the proposal the Fed could take enforcement action if the plan is not amended. Incentives played a key role in the run-up to the financial crisis. Read more about the proposed changes .

The 'inside' path to profit

The insider-trading case against Raj Rajaratnam, founder of the Galleon Group hedge fund, is more proof that, as much as Wall Street likes to tout the financial prowess of its best and brightest, the reality is something far less dazzling. And now Rajaratnam has been charged with one of Wall Street's simplest and oldest shell games: trading on nonpublic information. We've lost even before the amusement begins. The question is: Why do we keep coming back? Read David Weidner's column .

The Economist : EDITOR'S HIGHLIGHTS


www.economist.com

NOTICE: We recently began limiting access to certain sections of Economist.com to subscribers only. Content in our newsletters remains unaffected by these changes.

Dear Reader,

This week we have a 14-page special report on the world's most important political relationship: China and America. From climate change to the economic recovery, there is a host of problems that demands the United States and its closest rival work in concert. Yet relations are dogged by fears of a new cold war, or even a hot one, breaking out between the sole superpower and the "new Prussia". Our cover leader argues that America should take a much more confident approach with a country that for all the talk of a G2 is a fraction of its size and which is riven with political tensions. In broad terms the danger is that a frightened United States will be too tough on China over the economy, especially trade; and not tough enough on human rights.

What’s funny about the S&P?

By: Adam Hewison

There’s no question about it, the markets can be very difficult at times. On the other hand, you can laugh all the way to the bank if you approach the markets in a systematic way.
I was looking once again at the S&P 500 and many people have said the market has gone up, not on the fundamentals, but on the perception that things are going to be better. Perception is one of the most powerful elements of the market. I would say that perception trumps both the fundamental and technical.
So what’s going to happen to the S&P 500? Is it going to continue going higher for the rest of the year, or are we close to a turning point?
In my new short video, I outline several key areas that this market is fast approaching. These levels could be the Achilles heel for this market and potentially set the direction for the rest of the year.

Ted Butler on King World News: Morgan holds 40% of Comex silver shorts

1a ET Saturday, October 17, 2009
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):
Interviewed for about 10 minutes Friday by Eric King of King World News, silver market analyst and newsletter writer Ted Butler remarked that JPMorganChase is now is responsible for about 40 percent of the short position in silver on the New York Commodities Exchange, an appalling, market-dominating share whose apparent approval by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission worries and baffles Butler.

IBM Beats Earnings Forecasts, Raises Outlook, But Stock Falls

IBM Thursday raised its full-year outlook and reported higher-than-expected quarterly profit as its growing focus on higher-margin software and services businesses helped it cope with weak technology spending.

But investors dumped IBM shares [IBM  127.98    -0.37  (-0.29%)   ] after the results, sending the stock lower in after-hours trading. Click here to get after-hours quote
International Business Machines said it expects full-year earnings of at least $9.85 per share, up from its previous outlook of at least $9.70 a share. It had also raised its outlook last quarter as well from a previous forecast of $9.20.
"We are optimistic about 2009 as we again raise our full-year expectations and we remain well ahead of pace for our 2010 roadmap of $10 to $11 per share," said Chief Executive Samuel Palmisano.
IBM has managed to escape the worst of the tech downturn of the past year as it shifts more of its sales from servers to software and services in outsourcing, automation and technology support — areas that have remained relatively strong as companies seek ways to cut costs.
The company reported its third-quarter net profit rose to $3.2 billion, or $2.40 a share, from $2.8 billion, or $2.04 a share, a year earlier. Analysts on average expected a profit of $2.38 per share, according to Thomson Reuters.

Revenue fell 7 percent from a year earlier to $23.6 billion, although it rose 1 percent from the previous quarter and was better than Wall Street's forecast of $23.4 billion.
The company also forecast a return to revenue growth in the fourth quarter.IBM shares, which had risen about 24 percent in the past three months on hopes of a recovery in technology spending, fell 3.3 percent to $123.80 after closing at $127.98 on the New York Stock Exchange.
"We expected them to exceed expectations on both numbers. I also think you can interpret that the dynamics within the technology category are vastly improving. I think IT spending appears to be on the mend," said Keith Wirtz, president and chief investment officer at Fifth Third Asset Management..


Is there anything like a perfect Portfolio?

Adam Hewison makes a reflection if there is anything like a Perfect Portfolio. I consider is worthwhile to listen and learn what he has for us now,as always he has proven to be on the right direction

I’ve given a lot of thought as to what’s going to happen in the next three years. Specifically, what I am going to do with my own portfolio and my own money. I have scoped out several markets that I think are going to offer excellent opportunities, no matter what happens to the economy. Yes, you heard me right. No matter what happens to the economy, I believe that this “Perfect Portfolio” will work for you in the next 36 months whether you have 10,000 or 10,000,000 million dollars.
In this video I show you exactly the number of trades you would’ve made with the “Perfect Portfolio”.
We back tested the portfolio using our “Trade Triangle” technology for 42 months through some of the toughest, most difficult markets the world has ever seen. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the results of these two portfolios.

What’s the latest with Crude Oil? By Adam Hewison

I’ve had a number of requests from MarketClub members to produce another video on crude oil. Part of that may have come from the crude oil alert that we put on our blog on October 12.
What is interesting about crude oil is the fact that seasonally, it should be going down. However, the market appears to be doing just the opposite. We have written about this before and when something is supposed to happen and the opposite occurs, it’s time to pay attention.
http://www.ino.com/info/462/CD3233/&dp=0&l=0&campaignid=6
What was also interesting in crude oil is the fact that all of our “Trade Triangles” are all green giving a perfect 100% Chart Analysis score. This indicates that there are some strong trends in place and the odds are that the market should go higher. However, this is not a guarantee and all trades should be managed with stops.
In my new short video, I show some levels that crude oil could potentially go to. I also indicate a key level that many professional traders are watching and if this level is broken, it will certainly be a game changer.
http://www.ino.com/info/462/CD3233/&dp=0&l=0&campaignid=6
This video is free to view and there are no registration requirements. The one request we have is that you comment on our blog about your thoughts on crude oil.
All the best,

Market analyst Hutchinson acknowledges gold suppression

11:50a ET Wednesday, October 14, 2009
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Market analyst Martin Hutchinson's latest column, published this week at Prudent Bear, acknowledges the likelihood that central banks will try to manipulate the price of gold so that they might avoid having to do anything about the difficult problems signified by a rising gold price.
Hutchinson's commentary takes note of the Financial Times story GATA brought to your attention last week with a little preface of commentary, "Ohmigod! Commodity Investors Might Have to Buy ... Actual Commodities":
http://www.gata.org/node/7869
Hutchinson writes:
"Given the predilections of today's policymakers, it is unfortunately unlikely that they will tighten monetary policy sufficiently to break the commodity flight, whatever the gold price does. Instead, led by the determined Keynesians of the International Monetary Fund, they are much more likely to attempt to control the gold price itself, either surreptitiously by selling off massive quantities of the world's gold reserves, or openly by imposing limits on gold futures trading and possibly, like Franklin Roosevelt in 1933, making it illegal for ordinary individuals to own gold or to buy gold futures.
"That will of course only make matters worse; it would be equivalent to trying to avoid a speeding ticket by smashing the car's speedometer. Manipulating the gold price to pretend that liquidity is not excessive does not stop liquidity from being excessive. Nor does it lead any but the stupidest institutional investor to believe that his urge to invest in physical commodities is misguided. Rather, it will cause commodities investment to be carried out through shell companies in tax havens, away from regulators' radar screens. The effect on global supply chains will be equally damaging, but policymakers will no longer have a straightforward way of determining how to avoid the resulting economic depression."
