  • 22/27   Plunging Penny Stocks Stir a Mutual Fund Crisis in Indonesia
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- A crisis of confidence is brewing in Indonesia’s mutual-fund industry after some asset managers created products that invested in tiny, illiquid stocks, which have plunged in value.The volatility has triggered a “serious issue” in the nation’s capital markets that’s raised public concerns, said Wimboh Santoso, chairman of Indonesia’s Financial Services Authority. The regulator last year restricted sales of certain mutual funds offered by 37 investment managers, an increase from around only a dozen in the previous year.“If the integrity of trading activity in capital market is doubted, insurance companies or other companies that invest in mutual funds or stocks can be affected,” Santoso said in Jakarta on Wednesday. “This is dangerous.”Small-cap investments, with shares often illiquid and vulnerable to being rigged, are at the center of the problem. Asset manager PT Narada Aset Manajemen failed to meet redemption demand from investors and PT Minna Padi Aset Manajemen was reportedly ordered to liquidate six of its mutual funds in order to meet withdrawal requests.Forty-one stocks identified by the Indonesia Stock Exchange as prone to manipulation are also core components of several funds. Concerns about manipulation of share prices also caught the attention of President Joko Widodo, prompting him to order sweeping rule changes in the financial industry, with a focus on capital markets.Overall mutual-funds redemptions surged 37% from a month earlier in November, when the problems surfaced. By December, the value of redemptions exceeded that of subscriptions.Similar issues surrounding small caps have occurred in other markets. South Korean regulators recently stepped up scrutiny of a so-called pump-and-dump scheme involving the nation’s small stocks.While limited to specific companies in Indonesia, the concerns have undermined confidence in mutual-fund products, according to Edward P. Lubis, chairman of the Indonesian Investment Managers Association.“The small cap stocks are very susceptible,” Lubis said, adding 10 to 20 stocks saw prices tanking by more than 50% in the past two to three months. “The stocks fall so much and they are not traded; the liquidity isn’t there.”The bourse and its regulator, the Financial Services Authority, need to set up a mechanism to monitor stock manipulation via “market-making” activities, Bobby Gafur Sulistyo Umar, a deputy chairman at the Indonesian Public Listed Companies Association, told a January parliamentary hearing. Responsibility to curb illicit trading activity lies with the two entities, he said.The frequent appearance of some small stocks on the exchange’s regular “unusual market activity” notice should already serve as a warning for investors, said Laksono Widodo, director of trading and membership at the bourse.The Jakarta Composite Index, down 0.8% this year through Thursday, was little changed on Friday.(Updates with Jakarta Composite Index movement in last paragraph)To contact the reporters on this story: Tassia Sipahutar in Jakarta at ssipahutar@bloomberg.net;Ishika Mookerjee in Singapore at imookerjee@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lianting Tu at ltu4@bloomberg.net, Margo TowieFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 24/27   India Needs Foreign Capital to Fund Record Borrowing, IDFC Says
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- A bond fund manager who correctly predicted that India’s central bank would introduce a U.S. Federal Reserve style Operation Twist, now says that the nation needs more foreign capital to fund its record borrowing.India’s borrowing may rise to 7.6 trillion rupees ($107 billion) for the fiscal year starting April. 1, according to Suyash Choudhary, head of fixed income at IDFC Asset Management Co. The market can only handle it if more foreign investors are allowed to participate and the central bank continues its Operation Twist, where it buys longer-maturity bonds and sells shorter-term ones.Otherwise, the large borrowing size “will be a huge cause for concern,” Choudhary said, adding that the long end of the sovereign bond curve may remain volatile and the benchmark 10-year yield could rise over the 6.75% mark.The market has struggled with a record government borrowing of 7.1 trillion rupees this fiscal year and while the central bank’s unprecedented bond operation kept long-end yields in check, fears that the budget deficit may widen further has pushed up yields since November. The 10-year bond was steady at 6.6% on Friday.Overseas funds have long sought greater access to Indian debt but they hold just 3.4% of the almost 60 trillion rupees of outstanding sovereign bonds. Choudhary suggests that the government lift a 6% limit on foreign ownership.That goes against the widely-held view among policy makers that opening up the local debt market to foreigners may leave the nation vulnerable to the swings in global capital flows. India’s plans to raise as much as $10 billion via offshore debt announced in July failed to take off amid similar concerns.No PanaceaForeign investors may not be a panacea, they sold 110 billion rupees of government bonds so far in January, on track for the first sell-off since September, according to data from Clearing Corp. of India.On Thursday, the RBI raised foreign ownership limit in the country’s corporate and sovereign bonds to 1.5 trillion rupees for funds that commit to keeping a part of their investment in the country for at least three years. But the 6% cap on sovereign debt investment was left unchanged.Choudhary sees this as a precursor to a potential global index inclusion of India’s bonds. “Last night’s relaxation has to be seen in context that foreign investors have been selling Indian bonds lately,” he said, adding that the market needs a “push factor.”Limited ToolsPolicy makers may have to look for more unconventional measures to prop up an economy that’s growing at its slowest pace since 2009. After cutting rates five times last year, the RBI may be constrained to make further reductions as consumer price inflation hit its highest in more than five years in December.Choudhary expects India to report a fiscal deficit of 3.8% of GDP for the current fiscal year, up from a government’s target of 3.3%. He forecasts the budget shortfall to be about 3.5% for next year.The market needs to know that “the entire supply of bonds needn’t be absorbed only by the domestic players,” he said.(Updates fourth paragraph with latest bond yield level.)To contact the reporter on this story: Kartik Goyal in Mumbai at kgoyal@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tan Hwee Ann at hatan@bloomberg.net, Neha D'silvaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Choudhary suggests that the government lift a 6% limit on foreign ownership.That goes against the widely-held view among policy makers that opening up the local debt market to foreigners may leave the nation vulnerable to the swings in global capital flows. India’s plans to raise as much as $10 billion via offshore debt announced in July failed to take off amid similar concerns.No PanaceaForeign investors may not be a panacea, they sold 110 billion rupees of government bonds so far in January, on track for the first sell-off since September, according to data from Clearing Corp. of India.On Thursday, the RBI raised foreign ownership limit in the country’s corporate and sovereign bonds to 1.5 trillion rupees for funds that commit to keeping a part of their investment in the country for at least three years. But the 6% cap on sovereign debt investment was left unchanged.Choudhary sees this as a precursor to a potential global index inclusion of India’s bonds. “Last night’s relaxation has to be seen in context that foreign investors have been selling Indian bonds lately,” he said, adding that the market needs a “push factor.”Limited ToolsPolicy makers may have to look for more unconventional measures to prop up an economy that’s growing at its slowest pace since 2009. After cutting rates five times last year, the RBI may be constrained to make further reductions as consumer price inflation hit its highest in more than five years in December.Choudhary expects India to report a fiscal deficit of 3.8% of GDP for the current fiscal year, up from a government’s target of 3.3%. He forecasts the budget shortfall to be about 3.5% for next year.The market needs to know that “the entire supply of bonds needn’t be absorbed only by the domestic players,” he said.(Updates fourth paragraph with latest bond yield level.)To contact the reporter on this story: Kartik Goyal in Mumbai at kgoyal@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tan Hwee Ann at hatan@bloomberg.net, Neha D'silvaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 27/27   Japan December factory output seen rising for first time in three months: Reuters poll
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Japan's factory output is expected to have risen for the first time in three months in December, a Reuters poll showed on Friday, offering some relief for an economy weighed down by sluggish global demand and a sales tax hike.  Retail sales likely fell for a third straight month in December as consumers cut back spending after the sales tax increase to 10% from 8% in October, but the rate of decline likely moderated slightly from the previous month.  Industrial output is expected to have grown 0.7% in December from the previous month, the poll showed, which would follow a 1.0% fall in November and a hefty 4.5% drop in October.
