Select Manager Income Plus comment - Jun 07

2007/10/03 00:00:00
Overview June proved to be a tough month in local equity markets. A higher degree of volatility was evident although the market did well to contain its losses. Were it not for the ongoing demand for resource related stocks, particularly from global investors, the market would have ended significantly lower than the -0.95% posted by the All Share index.
Currency The rand remained fairly steady against most currencies, helped by a weaker dollar. The outlook for the currency remains grim as the current account deficit looks unlikely to narrow in the near term.
Fixed Interest Strong growth, sustained worries over the large current account deficit and upside surprises to inflation, dominated economic news locally over the part three months. Most concerning has been the unexpected breach by inflation of the 6% upper limit of the inflation target range. The SA Reserve Bank was left with no option but to raise interest rates in June after leaving rates unchanged at the preceding two meetings. Risks to interest rates remain firmly to the upside. The negative inflation data exposed the overvalued levels of longer dated bonds relative to cash during the past two months. The sharp sell off was justified and the market has now priced in a further interest rate hike of 50bps in August. We maintain that long-term cash yields offer better value in the shorter term.
Equity Despite the solid rand, resource stocks were buoyed by strong investor demand and steady commodity prices. The pressure on interest rate sensitive stocks continued from May as inflation data clearly pointed to further interest rate tightening. The financial sector was hardest hit, ending the month 4.1% lower after a 4.3% correction in May. The mid and small cap indices posted declines of 4.0% and 1.3% respectively. Their respective annual returns of 54.0% and 71.3% remain spectacular. Although fundamentals for equities are less attractive than six months ago, we do not believe that it is significant enough to detract considerably from the relative valuation advantage of equities versus other asset classes. It is however reasonable to expect more muted returns for the balance of the year.
Property The pressure on property stocks continued for most of June. Although the fundamentals have deteriorated for this sector due to the tightening stance of the SA Reserve Bank, we still believe a structural holding in property is essential within an economy which is experiencing an investment boom and growing in excess of 4.5% annually. In the long term, property will generate attractive capital growth while paying out a steady earnings stream.
