NZ Fin Min Ramps Up Alternative Policy Message

2344 GMT [Dow Jones] NZ Finance Minister Michael Cullen continues to ratchet up government moves pursuing alternative tightening measures to work alongside monetary policy to "address short-term pressures in the housing market." Says he's pleased that IMF supports government efforts to explore new options; "In the IMF's view various tax and prudential measures deserve further scrutiny and this is consistent with the government's view." Says government's proposal for Financial and Expenditure Select Committee to review operation of monetary policy is aimed at ensuring best options will be used to cool housing sector

Embattled Qantas board under increasing pressure from government to state whether its 49% foreign ownership cap has been breached: Australian Treasurer Costello says board better have a good explanation if limit's been passed, says board has legal obligation to abide by legislated limit; Transport Minister Vaile yesterday wrote to QAN demanding immediate review of airline's share registry. Neither laid out what any potential consequences could be. With market due to open in about half an hour, Qantas at this point remains in trading halt

IMF Warns Of Sharp Fall In NZD, Eyes Higher Rates

International Monetary Fund warns that NZD/USD could suffer "sharper depreciation in case of a global event such as a sudden unwinding of the carry trade." In its annual review of NZ, IMF also says NZD well above its long-run average, not supportive of an unwinding of country's large current account deficit. IMF also supports government moves to consider additional measures to cool housing market; "Directors broadly supported the view that limiting the ability to deduct losses on housing-related investments from other income, combined with more active enforcement of current tax laws, might help to discourage property speculation," it said. Also thinks NZ interest rates could go up further as inflation still high, cautions government against providing too much fiscal stimulus in May 17 budget. Pair, which tapped post-float peak of 0.7493 3 weeks ago

Weekly Market Overview

This week, we have three major central banks Interest Rate Decision. Will greenback last week’s gain continues in the week ahead? Probably not.

On April 17th, United Kingdom released its CPI (yoy) was way beyond the consensus of 2.8% came out at 3.1%. This indicated two things, first, it syndicates that Bank of England failed to provide the appropriate policy to maintain UK’s Inflation and second, UK inflation is beyond the comfort zoom, thus, BOE will most likely increase its interest rate from 5.25% to 5.50%. Despite, that market has already digested most of this event; however, further bullish pound movement can be expected before and after the news.

Speculation on EU rate hike remains high. Although, the forecast on May 10th, this coming Thursday European Central Bank’s rate decision is UNCHANGED but central banker, Mr. Trichet might give out more hints on when will the central bank increase its rate another 25 basis points. Euro might not be as volatile as Cable but in the relatively short term, it is expected to move higher against greenback.

In conclusion, this week will be the interest rate dominants week in all financial market. PNX believes U.S. dollar will have a difficult time continues its last week gain against European currency. Cable and EURO, especially Cable will likely anticipate mid term gain against Greenback.

P.S. Bank of England is in the process of advance its policy making transparency to the market. Please put extra attention on this Thursday’s rate announcement.

S&P 500 Record Stoked by Companies' Growing China, German Sales

By Michael Tsang and Daniel Hauck

May 7 (Bloomberg) -- When the stock market's benchmark for Corporate America rallies to a record, investors can attribute the bull market to its growing dependence on the Chinese.

Companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 Index get 49 percent of their sales from outside the U.S., up from 30 percent in 2001, according to S&P, whose index includes the biggest corporations. The balance may tip this year as global growth outpaces the U.S. The world economy will expand 4.2 percent in 2007, twice the U.S. pace, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

The single most contributing factor to the excess amount of liquidity in the system is the ageing of the baby boomers and the amount of money now being saved in superannuation. This is particularly exemplified in Japan where superannuants retire at an earlier age than most other countries. These people are retiring with assets on a per capita basis on average of USD 300k. Faced with low returns in Japan they seek higher returns elsewhere in countries such as NZ, Australia, UK and USA.
In Australia while we run a aurrent account deficit of approx 5% of GDP we have almpst AUD 1 trillion in super funds and managed funds. Managers face difficulties finding a home for most of this money.

Sale of the century - Apr 26th 2007 - From The Economist print edition - Companies are buying back their own shares at a record rate

BUY now while stocks last. The retailers' traditional slogan is being re-enacted in the American stockmarket. The supply of quoted shares is shrinking fast.
If business conditions are getting more difficult, a bit of financial engineering will help. Buying back shares with borrowed money boosts earnings per share, so profit growth can continue to look healthy. That was an important driver in the final stages of the 1990s bull market.

In the long run, this is not sustainable. But so far, investors do not seem to have noticed. Slowing profits forecasts have been offset by an increase in the prospective profits multiple on American shares. Corporate borrowing rates are at cyclical lows, increasing the incentive for companies to buy back shares and for private-equity groups to launch takeovers. For as long as that buying spree continues, those who worry about the long-term will look out of touch.

May 7 (Bloomberg) -- Anyone who says the dollar is weak after it fetched a record-low $1.3681 against the euro and the fewest pence against the pound in 25 years is expressing a euphemism.

The currency may decline at least another 10 percent by the end of 2008, say Jay Bryson, an economist at Wachovia Corp., and Kenneth Rogoff, the former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund. The dollar has only fallen 3.4 percent in the past two years to a 10-year low, according to a Federal Reserve index that weighs trade with 38 countries including China, Mexico, Canada and countries in Europe. It tumbled 30 percent in the three years ended 1988.

Trichet, G-10 Colleagues, May Say Investors Under-Pricing Risk

By Gabi Thesing

May 7 (Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank President Jean- Claude Trichet and his Group of 10 colleagues may say investors aren't taking full account of potential risks as markets surge.

``There is too much money around globally, coupled with a degree of complacency toward risk,'' said Ken Wattret, chief euro- area economist at BNP Paribas in London. ``Central banks have been too accommodative for too long, contributing to all the cash that's sloshing around the system.''

French elections btw. have to be seen in developments into June, as stated earlier. So a no event for now. Official rioters in Paris is It said to be some 10K, but difficult to say exact numbers imo.

...follows from link lower, interesting the problem of welfare and unions in France printed

Indeed, one wonders if Royale is not a mirror image of Hillary, saying people should vote for her because the opponant is evil, doesn’t care anything for children, is a warmonger, and will cause poor people to riot in the streets.

Sarcozy dared to describe “youths” as “scum” and “thugs” for rioting and burning about 10 000 cars during the summer, thereby winning the Imus award for colorful language.

Yet the dirty little secret is that if Sarcozy wins, the one who will benefit the most will be the suburbs.

The French welfare system prevents the economy from forming new jobs. And, of course, law and order mainly benefit not the rich, who live far from the ghettos of the “immigrant suburbs’, but those who are languishing from joblessness and suffer from petty crime or worse by unemployed youth.

The trade unions are part of the problem…
Various governments have tried over the past 12 years to implement laws to free a stagnating economy, each time backing down after noisy street protests, some of them led by Thibault and his followers from the placard-wielding far left… Only about 8% of French workers belong to trade unions but they have a powerful grip on public services and some important companies, making it easy for them to paralyse the country by blocking transport systems.

And Sarcozy has the nerve to diss the ideas of 1968, which allowed street mobs to run the government.

To those of us of a certain age, it sounds like Reagan redux. Or Rudy Redux.

Le nouveau président de la République entrera officiellement en fonction le 16 mai. Entre temps, il devrait se retirer dans un lieu tenu secret, pour "décompresser" mais aussi mettre en place ses équipes. Le gouvernement devrait être désigné entre le 19 et 20 mai, avec pour mission de mener la majorité au succès pour les législatives des 10 et 17 juin.

However, Mr Sarkozy’s triumph was marred by sporadic violence on Sunday night as demonstrators took to the streets in Paris, Lyons, Marseilles and Bordeaux to protest against the tough-talking former interior minister.

In the southern city of Toulouse, hundreds of demonstrators marched through the town centre setting off smoke bombs and stoning shop windows. A handful of protesters even tried to break into the town hall.

The scale of Mr Sarkozy’s victory, though, is only likely to embolden the leader of the ruling UMP party to push ahead with radical reforms this summer.

Mr Sarkozy has promised to cut taxes and loosen France’s tightly regulated labour market to stimulate faster growth in the world’s sixth-biggest economy. But he must first secure a parliamentary majority in legislative elections next month.

Failed Qantas Bid A Mild Negative For AUD - ANZ
Some unwinding in large, long-AUD hedges related to Airline Partners Australia bid for Qantas (QAN.AU) may follow news the A$11 billion bid failed, says Tony Morriss, senior currency strategist at ANZ Bank; bid collapse poses a mild negative for AUD in coming days as likely to damp positive-AUD sentiment linked to M&A activity. AUD/USD at 0.8212 in early Asian dealings; up from 0.8193 late Friday though softer overnight; will extend correction should payrolls-linked USD weakness continue.
