Tuesday's primary highlights

** The primary market remained buoyant on Tuesday where another nine transactions printed for a combined EUR16.8bn, spearheaded by Jumbo deals from Spain and KfW (more on those below). Tuesday's bumper total means that we have already seen more supply this week (EUR22.9bn) than in the whole of last week (EUR21.62bn). For information on the nine EUR deals to price Tuesday including pricing steps, see our newly formatted IGM's DAILY EUR NICS & BOOKS report

** The headline issue of the day was Kingdom of Spain's syndicated EUR8bn Oct 2027 deal on the back of blowout demand of over EUR28.9bn. The extremely enthusiastic investor response allowed Spain to print at m/s +70 from a +mid 70s IPTs starting point, which equated to some economic funding for the borrower with the trade appearing to price inside Spain's existing curve

** KfW refreshed its well-stocked global Euro curve with a EUR5bn Oct 2024 line at m/s -28. Books on this one topped EUR7.55bn. For relative value analysis on the KfW & Spain trades, see earlier IGM SSA PREVIEW

** In FIG, the focus was on the higher beta end of the capital structure where HSBC Holdings Plc took advantage of the ongoing search for yield with a EUR1.25bn PNC12 AT1 which was 4X covered. See IGM's FIG SNAPSHOT

** Gecina became the latest IG corp to price a three-part issue comprising a EUR500m 7yr floater and 10/15yr fixed rate issues which were also EUR500m apiece. Demand was strong at over EUR6bn, allowing the spread on each tranche to be tightened 22bps during execution. Elsewhere, Deutsche Bahn returned to the Sterling market after a near 4yr hiatus. See IGM CORP SNAPSHOT

    China Insight: A return of focus to credit clean-up in 2021

    14 Dec 2020

    Concerns over China corporate credit risk have come to the forefront since the beginning of Q4, highlighted by three high-grade issuers' defaults: 1. AAA-rated Huachen Auto Group (onshore), 2. AAA-rated Yongcheng Coal & Electricity Group (onshore), 3. AAA-rated Tsinghua Unigroup (offshore) Coincidentally, all of these three issuers are state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in nature. This, to a certain extent reflects central government's bias in favour of a return to policy normalisation and possibly a second round of financial deleveraging (following the first round in 2017). Chart 1 shows that China's total debt to GDP ratio may have reached as high as 290% by the end of this year, so there is a need for deleveraging regardless of the defaults YTD being smaller than those in the previous two years both in terms of the total number and the total size of events (chart 2). From the perspective of the policymakers, with various kind of economic activities having returned to their pre-COVID levels, a return of the focus to credit clean-up should be more beneficial to long-term economic development...

    China Insight: Slower and bumpier RMB appreciation in year ahead

    07 Dec 2020

    There is good chance China will be the only major economy in the world to generate positive GDP growth (around 2%) in 2020 due largely to its effective pandemic containment measures and consequently the faster recovery of the production and consumption. As far as the FX is concerned, RMB has been appreciating against USD since the beginning of June on the back of broad-based weakness of greenback (chart 1). Besides, RMB has also been appreciating against all EM Asia currencies (except KRW) since USD's multi-month downtrend kicked off in early-summer. We attribute the RMB's outperformance relative to the rest of EM Asia to growing hopes of a victory of Biden in the 2020 presidential election, who's obviously far less hostile to China and promised to remove the existing tariffs on China in case he becomes the next US president...
