  • 42/72   Fertility, Phones, Reforms: A Trader Checklist for Suga’s Japan
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- With Yoshihide Suga now a certainty to be formally declared the next prime minster of Japan on Wednesday, market watchers are eyeing what the election of the unassuming son of a strawberry farmer means for the country’s equity markets.While Suga had long been seen as one of the top contenders to replace Shinzo Abe when he stepped down, the speed at which ruling Liberal Democratic Party elders moved to throw their weight behind him was nonetheless surprising -- although so far his policies haven’t turned heads.Japan’s Suga Wins Ruling Party Race to Replace Premier Abe “In the short-term we don’t expect any major shifts in policy until the Covid-19 threat has disappeared,” Jefferies analysts including Sean Darby wrote after Suga’s appointment by his party. “Japan is recovering much quicker than the markets would have expected three months ago. Strong monetary growth accompanied by tangible profits ought to keep a bid on Japanese share prices.”One group less than pleased to see Suga as prime minister will be investors in Japan’s mobile carriers. Suga has spent much of the past two years attacking the three legacy carriers for their perceived lack of competition, which Suga contends has led to Japanese customers having higher mobile phone bills than those in other countries. He has also repeatedly highlighted the fat profit margins of the three, and on Sunday threatened to raise the fees the carriers pay for the use of radio waves.NTT Docomo Inc. and KDDI Corp., the country’s two largest carriers, have lost a combined $20 billion in market value since Abe announced he was stepping down. Shares in Rakuten Inc., which has recently entered the market as the fourth carrier in a move meant to spur competition, have meanwhile risen 31%.Docomo and KDDI continued sliding on Tuesday following Suga’s appointment, both dropping more than 2%.Fertility Stocks“With the exception of several major telecom stocks, Japan’s risk markets have been pleased with Suga’s clear front-runner status, and will likely continue to be so after his easy victory,” wrote John Vail, Nikko Asset Management’s chief global strategist. “He is not only continuing Abenomics, but likely enhancing its Third Arrow economic reforms. Japan continues to have one of the most stable and business-friendly governments in the developed world.”One area of Suga’s focus that has lit up equity markets since he began campaigning to replace Abe has been a call to cover fertility treatments under the national insurance system, in an attempt to shore up the country’s falling birth rates. Shares in companies involved in fertility treatments have been an early “Suganomics” winner, with Aska Pharmaceutical Co. up 15% and CellSource Co. adding 40% since Abe stepped down on Aug. 28.Next CabinetWith Suga now confirmed as head of the ruling party, focus is shifting to who he will pick for his cabinet, which is set to take office on Wednesday. Deregulation, structural reforms and support for Japan’s regional areas are expected to be focuses of the cabinet, which must first tackle the ongoing damage of the coronavirus pandemic. The cabinet will be filled with “reformers,” Suga said Monday.Structural reforms will buoy Japan’s potential growth rate and exert an upward pressure on bond yields over the longer term, according to Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities.Local media reports indicate that Finance Minister Taro Aso and Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi will retain their roles in the new administration. Health Minister Katsunobu Kato is being eyed to replace Suga as Chief Cabinet Secretary, NTV reported.But the main question for market watchers is likely to be the prospect of a possible snap election.“Given the industrial reforms and deregulation Mr. Suga strongly desires to achieve will likely take time to implement, we expect attention to focus on whether the new administration goes to the polls by year’s end in a bid to secure enough time for policy implementations,” Goldman Sachs economist Naohiko Baba wrote in a note Monday.With Suga’s support riding high, a snap election could be a positive for equity markets. SMBC Nikko analysts Masashi Akutsu and Hikaru Yasuda wrote in a Sept. 2 note that share prices tend to start rising from around 30 days before a lower house election and accelerate after the vote, in cases when the ruling LDP didn’t lose seats.A Snap Poll Could Be a Catalyst for Japan Traders: Taking StockSuga said Monday it was difficult to dissolve the lower house and call a snap election due to the virus situation, but indicated that could change if the pandemic started to die down.(Adds Docomo, KDDI share moves in sixth paragraph, cabinet appointments)For 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.

  • 57/72   Biden and Trump deliver starkly different messages on wildfires
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    * Democrat stresses climate crisis and pitches green investment  * Trump to speak at event for California national guard  * US politics – live coverageThe climate crisis and record wildfires in the western US forced their way into the presidential campaign on Monday, with Joe Biden calling Donald Trump a “climate arsonist” and Trump falsely claiming that the planet “will start getting cooler” and that the science is still uncertain.The historic fires in California, Oregon and Washington have killed at least 35, forced tens of thousands to evacuate and subjected millions to some of the worst air pollution in the world – yet the subject has been slow to penetrate mainstream politics, amid the Covid-19 pandemic and a national reckoning on racial injustice.In a speech in his home town, Wilmington, Delaware, on a hot afternoon on the heels of the hemisphere’s hottest summer yet, Biden emphasized the wildfires’ connection to the human-made climate crisis and pitched his plan to invest in green infrastructure in order to create jobs and stimulate an economic recovery from the pandemic.“If we have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires, how many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out, how many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?” Biden asked. “If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more of America ablaze … when more of America is under water?”The former vice-president highlighted how the climate crisis is touching all Americans, from the western fires to midwestern floods, droughts and windstorms and Gulf coast hurricanes.default Trump meanwhile blamed the fires on poor forest management, spoke of “exploding” trees and disputed the science showing the world will only get hotter if fossil fuel and other climate emissions from human activity are not steeply curtailed.During his visit to California, for a briefing on the wildfires and to bestow awards to California national guard members who helped rescue campers stranded by one of the strongest of dozens of infernos, Trump also questioned the usefulness of US climate action.“When you get into climate change, well, is India going to change its ways? Is China going to change its ways? Is Russia going to change its ways?” he told reporters when he arrived in Sacramento. “We’re just a small speck. They make up a big preponderance of the pollution.”The US is in fact the biggest historical emitter of climate pollution, although China is currently the top emitter.In a later briefing, Trump interrupted an official, Wade Crowfoot, the secretary of California’s Natural Resources Agency, to argue the climate “will start getting cooler, you just watch”.Crowfoot responded: “I wish science agreed with you.”To which Trump retorted: “I don’t think science knows actually.”Crowfoot later tweeted: “It won’t actually get cooler, Mr President,” alongside a temperature graphic.> It actually won’t get cooler Mr. President. ClimateChangeIsReal pic.twitter.com/gYWtitBdcN> > — Wade Crowfoot (@WadeCrowfoot) September 14, 2020Lacking forest management does exacerbate wildfires, but hot and dry conditions because of climate change are a major contributer.California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, in the briefing with Trump acknowledged a need for better forest management but said “we come to the perspective, humbly ... that climate change is real and that is exacerbating this”.Trump, who has previously denied climate change exists and downplayed its impact.The two men’s responses illustrate the importance of the November election in determining the trajectory of global climate action.If Biden wins, the US will recommit to climate efforts, potentially encouraging deeper action from the rest of the world. The scale and speed of Biden’s response would depend largely on congressional politics and could be hampered by his hesitancy to call for a rapid end to the use of fossil fuels, but he has vowed that climate will be a top priority.If Trump wins, he will continue to cheerlead fossil fuels, stripping environmental standards and helping the industry compete with clean energy.Julien Emile-Geay, an associate professor of earth sciences at the University of Southern California, said: “Voters will soon have to choose between an administration invested into denying objective information – including, but not limited to, all the science it finds inconvenient – and a Democratic ticket that, for all its faults, at least acknowledges this reality.“This is what political choice has turned to in 2020: a referendum on objective reality.”In his speech, Biden said Trump “has no interest in meeting this moment. He’s already said he wanted to withhold aid to California, to punish the people of California. Because they didn’t vote for him. This is another crisis. Another crisis he won’t take responsibility for. The west is literally on fire.”The conditions in the US are precisely those climate scientists and activists have warned about for years. On the west coast, dozens of fires are burning. On the Gulf coast, states are bracing for a possible second major hurricane this season, as Hurricane Sally heads for eastern Louisiana and the Florida panhandle.“It’s clear that we’re not safe in Donald Trump’s America,” Biden said. “This is Donald Trump’s America. He’s in charge.”Touting his proposed legislative program, he took further shots at the president.“When Donald Trump thinks about climate change, he thinks hoax. When I think about climate change I think jobs. When Donald Trump thinks about renewable energy he sees windmills somehow as causing cancer. I see American manufacturing. When Donald Trump thinks about LED lightbulbs, he says they’re no good, they always make him look orange …”Globally, most countries are likely to miss a 2020 deadline to advance their climate plans, the United Nations climate chief, Patricia Espinosa, told Climate Home News. That includes China – the biggest emitter of heat-trapping climate pollution.A 2015 international agreement was meant to be the first step for countries to begin to significantly limit warming. But the world is far off track. Having warmed more than 1C since industrialization, it is now on a path toward 3C or higher.Joan E Greve contributed reporting

Another crisis he won’t take responsibility for. The west is literally on fire.”The conditions in the US are precisely those climate scientists and activists have warned about for years. On the west coast, dozens of fires are burning. On the Gulf coast, states are bracing for a possible second major hurricane this season, as Hurricane Sally heads for eastern Louisiana and the Florida panhandle.“It’s clear that we’re not safe in Donald Trump’s America,” Biden said. “This is Donald Trump’s America. He’s in charge.”Touting his proposed legislative program, he took further shots at the president.“When Donald Trump thinks about climate change, he thinks hoax. When I think about climate change I think jobs. When Donald Trump thinks about renewable energy he sees windmills somehow as causing cancer. I see American manufacturing. When Donald Trump thinks about LED lightbulbs, he says they’re no good, they always make him look orange …”Globally, most countries are likely to miss a 2020 deadline to advance their climate plans, the United Nations climate chief, Patricia Espinosa, told Climate Home News. That includes China – the biggest emitter of heat-trapping climate pollution.A 2015 international agreement was meant to be the first step for countries to begin to significantly limit warming. But the world is far off track. Having warmed more than 1C since industrialization, it is now on a path toward 3C or higher.Joan E Greve contributed reporting

  • 59/72   Iran considering assassinating US ambassador to South Africa for retribution over Soleimani killing, reports claim
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Iran has considered an assassination attempt against the US ambassador to South Africa as a retaliatory measure against the US for its drone strike in January that killed Iranian Major-General Qassem Soleimani.  The ambassador, Lana Marks, a longtime friend of Donald Trump who was unanimously confirmed to her post by the Senate in 2019, has been informed of the potential plot, Politico reported, citing two anonymous sources, one of whom was “familiar with the issue” or another who had seen intelligence suggesting the potential assassination.
