Fund Manager Commentary
China's manufacturing PMI rose to 51.6 in February from 51.3 in January. The rise was led by a strong production index and new orders index. It suggests manufacturing activity growth momentum likely picked up amid positive market sentiment. The export orders and import indices continued to improve, painting a solid trade picture near term. On CNH bond space, there was a primary issuance in February – Ocean Wealth Ltd's 3-year bond where China Orient Asset Management is the obligor. The deal was well supported in both primary market and secondary market.
The dim sum bond market was slightly positive in February. The FTSE BOCHK offshore RMB bond index has reported a total return of +0.48% in the past month. On a month-over-month basis, overall average yield has tightened from 4.73% to 4.69% while overall high yield bonds have tightened from 6.62% to 6.25% and investment grade bonds were almost flat. At the same time, the average yield for Chinese sovereign bond has widened from 4.34% to 4.36%.
Renminbi deposits in Hong Kong decreased to RMB 522.48 billon at the end of January from RMB 546.71 billon at the end of December. The total remittance of RMB for cross-border trade settlement amounted to RMB 271.03 billion in January compared to RMB 287.63 billion in December. PBOC USD-CNY fixing ended the month with 0.24% depreciation, while the USD-CNH almost flat at -0.04% by the end of February.
Despite high uncertainty associated with the Trump administration's trade policy, the Chinese economy appears to have stayed robust at the beginning of 2017, as evidenced by solid PMIs, better exports and imports in January and strong credit expansion. In our view, the above-mentioned indicators point to solid industrial activity and investment growth in Q1. On strategy, RMB 142 billion of CNH bonds will mature in 2017, representing 30% of the total outstanding amount (excluding CDs). Among corporate bonds, we favour short-dated high-yield property names as a big part of Chinese corporate bonds will mature in the first half of 2017. However, short-term funding costs remain high. The high-yield property names provide around 8% yield, which is enough to cover the funding cost. We think reinvestment needs will support the secondary market especially for 2018s bonds and any refinancing needs from issuers will be well supported too.
Note: CNH is the currency symbol for offshore RMB. Offshore RMB bonds are also known as dim sum bonds.
