Prudential High Yield Bond comment - Sep 19

2019/10/25 00:00:00
The SARB announced that it would keep interest rates on hold at 6.5% at its September MPC meeting, and its latest quarterly projection model pointed to no interest rate changes through year-end. The growth outlook for 2020 and 2021, however, was revised down from 1.8% to 1.5%, and from 2.0% to 1.8% respectively. Preliminary results showed that GDP expanded 3.1% in the second quarter, well above market consensus of 2.5%. With inflation under control at 4.3% y/y in August, the SARB also lowered its inflation forecast for 2019 to 4.2%, from 4.4% previously. Ratings agency Moody’s announced that it would keep SA’s growth forecast for 2019 at 0.7%, after revising it down from 1.1% in June. Moody’s is currently the only credit-ratings agency that has not downgraded SA to sub-investment grade.
In a string of poor economic data, retail sales dropped from 2.4% y/y in June to 2.0% y/y in July; the Absa Purchasing Managers’ Index declined to 45.7 in August from 52.1 in July (well below the 51.4 market consensus); and manufacturing production contracted 1.1% y/y in July from +3.6% y/y in June. The government’s gross loan debt increased to 58.3% of annual GDP for Q2 2019, surpassing the February 2019 budget’s projection of 56.2% for the full 2019/2020 fiscal year.
In September, the BEASSA All Bond Index posted 0.5%, inflation-linked bonds (the Composite ILB Index) delivered 0.4%, and cash as measured by the STeFI Composite Index returned 0.6%.
The fund returned 10.8% over the past 12 months, compared to 11.4% delivered by the All Bond Index over the same period.
