Snapshot - Valuations of APAC USD bonds issued in 2Q2017

** Highlights of the Report**

  • Valuations for the notable APAC USD bond issuances in the second quarter of 2017 paint a contrasting picture between new investment-grade and high yield issues, particularly for the Corporate issuers.
  • New IG issues generally performed better than HY issues by the end of the quarter in which issuance volume fell 18.53% from 1Q2017 to USD99.535bn.
  • Total APAC USD issuance volume in 1H2017 has crossed the USD200bn mark to USD221.715bn.
  • Chinese issuers contributed the most with 44.16% of 1H2017's issuance and looks set to cross the USD100bn mark in 3Q2017.
  • General outperformance of APAC's IG issuance in 20Q2017 could help buoy positive sentiment of new issuances into 3Q2017. HY issuances on the otherhand, largely seemed to fall out of favour post issuance in the second quarter.

    China Insight: Bond market bearishness intensifies

    Recall, we delivered the below predictions respectively in two issues of this publication last month: - 11 September -- "Despite the downward pullback of the yield in recent days, we still stick with our cautiously bearish view on the bonds. We won't be surprised if the 10-year CGB yield finally reaches 3.25% or higher in Q4 if the prevailing mini-deleveraging cycle continues". - 18 September -- "In our view, continued reluctance of PBOC to act generously will reinforce the market perception that monetary easing cycle is already over and borrowing costs will be gradually creeping upward.
