The Shanghai continued to advance following the release of positive Chinese economic data. China new Yuan loans for the month of March totaled CNY1.06T, considerably higher than the CNY620B reported in the prior month. In addition, the Chinese government announced that it will allow local authorities to take a larger portion of the value-added tax (VAT) in a move seen to facilitate business activity, and as a positive step towards new reform measures. The Australia S&P/ASX pared back some of its gains following the release of weaker than expected employment data. The Australian jobless rate climbed last month to 5.6%, the highest level in over three years, while the employment change was -36.1K vs. -7.5k expected, sending the AUD lower from around $1.0550 to $1.0500. The Bank of Korea (BOK) unexpectedly maintained the 7-day Repo Rate at 2.75% (for 6th straight month), despite the political pressure to lower rates, amid the situation in North Korea and weaker yen. Bond yields hinted at a rate cut and declined to record lows following a cut in the 2013 GDP forecast by the Finance Ministry. ***Fixed Income/Commodities*** - (NZ) New Zealand registered to sell up to 100B in uridashi bonds - (VN) Vietnam Central Bank sold 39.2k taels of gold bullion - (JP) Japan MoF sells 551.3B v 600B indicated in 1.8% 30-yr JGBs; Avg yield: 1.492% v 1.820% prior, bid-to-cover: 3.64x v 3.33x prior ***Speakers/Political/In the Papers*** - (JP) Fitch: Japan's QE Should Temporarily Boost Banks' Profits - (JP) Japan, US to announce preliminary agreement on TPP-free trade discussions tomorrow - financial press - (JP) BoJ Gov Kuroda: Easing impact has staying power; reiterates 2% target will be achieved - Nikkei News interview - (JP) Bank of Japan (BOJ) to conduct bond buying operation tomorrow - financial press - (CN) China city of Guangzhou may increase down payment requirement for second homes - financial press >- (CN) China rate swaps rise after Mar loans exceeds expectation - Chinese press - (CN) China 7-day repo rate fell 6bps to 3.15% (lowest level since March 27th) - (CN) China will allow local govt take bigger value-added tax (VAT) share - Chinese press - (CN) China small businesses expressed low optimism for the economy - Chinese press - (AU) RBA's Stevens: Size of Asia financial system has grown substantially - financial press - (AU) Australia PM Gillard: Reached new level in Chinese relations - financial press - (NZ) New Zealand Fin Min English: Fiscal target is net debt 20% of GDP by 2020 - (NZ) RBNZ: Deposit insurance can lead to riskier bank behavior; see very low risk of any bank failure in NZ - financial press - (NZ) Auckland 2012 GDP at +2.8%, ahead of 10-yr avg - New Zealand Herald - (KR) Japan Defense Ministry: North Korea said to be positioning launch pad in possible preparation plans - Japanese press - (SG) Singapore to list CNY equities this year - financial press - (MX) Mexico Central Bank Gov Carsten: Expects GDP at 3.5% this year - (MX) Mexico debt chief: Decline in Mexico bonds yields due to BOJ stimulus, weak US data - financial press - (UK) BoE's Haldane: Financial regulations are too complex, expensive and inefficient - (US) Fed's Fisher: Inflation not on the horizon for foreseeable future; concerned Fed is financing the US debt - financial press ***Equities*** - GM: To invest 4B in Opel unit - financial press - VALE: Expects bank tax bill for the company to drop significantly due to today's Supreme Court ruling on Brazil corporate taxes; today's decision was a victory - LIFE: Thermo Fischer Scientific said to have outbid consortium group with bid in high end of $65-70/shr range - financial press - IP: Third Point (Loeb) increased stakes in IP and LBTYA - CNBC citing Q1 letter to investors; +0.9% afterhours - CVX: Issues Interim Update for First Quarter 2013; -0.3% afterhours - YUM: Reports March China SSS -13%; seeing impact from bird flu scare in the last week; -2.3% afterhours >- IART: Guides Q1 $0.30-0.40 v $0.68e, R$194-197M v $206Me; Issued Voluntary Recall of Certain Products Manufactured in its Anasco, Puerto Rico Facility; -7.0% afterhours - FTNT: Reports prelim Q1 $0.10 v $0.12e, Rev $134-136M v $140Me (previously guided $0.11-0.12, R$138-141M on 1/30); -14% afterhours - BBBY: Reports Q4 $1.68 v $1.68e, R$3.40B v $3.40Be; +1.8% afterhours - ZUMZ: Reports March SSS +2.1% v -8.2%e; +9.6% afterhours - WOW.AU: Reports Q3 Rev A$14.4B v A$14Be - Hyundai Heavy 009540.KR: Awarded KRW2.16T order - financial press - Sharp 6753.JP: May report H2 Op profit 20B v 13.8B prior guidance - Nikkei News
