Note that in the past, weak PMI results have often produced rallies in expectation of more aggressive PBoC policy easing. HSBC chief economist's commentary was mixed, noting firmer domestic demand but a contraction in export orders for the first time since April of last year. Input and output prices were also still in contraction, justifying continued policy support to deal with economic activity "remaining sluggish". Separately in China, local press cited an official with the NDRC suggesting the govt may push forward some infrastructure projects in 2015 to promote regional development in the midwest parts of the country.- Hong Kong Financial Sec Tsang unveiled 2014 final GDP slowing to 2.3% from 3% in 2013 and guiding 2015 in 1-3% range - well below 3.9% annual average of the past decade. Tsang added Hong Kong govt will offer some stimulus via lower income tax and will be prepared to offer new measures for the property sector in the event of market turmoil. Hong Kong-traded Macau gaming stocks were also sharply lower on chatter the govt will hold talks with Beijing about potentially capping the number of visitors from China due to the adverse effects of the gambling industry on the residents.- Down under, Australia PM Abbott announced regulators will begin to charge foreign home buyers an application fee, though he also insisted the move is not intended to deter foreign investment. Treasury Sec Fraser also noted residential property sector is still growing strongly while household spending and overall economy are below trend. Australia economic data indicated as much, with Q4 construction showing renewed growth in residential segment of +2.5% v -1.6% prior and a decline of -2.9% v -0.1% prior in non-residential space. Wages were also softer than expected, falling to the lowest annual rate of increase in 17 years, boosting the likelihood of a dovish RBA policy statement next week. In New Zealand, RBNZ Gov Wheeler noted Auckland is faced with a housing shortage, but it was mainly a problem from the supply side.- Japan Upper House approved Yutaka Harada as a board member for the BOJ. Recall on Feb 5th, nomination of Yutaka - a staunch reflationist who could support further easing - was welcomed by Yen bears. Separately, Sankei reported Japan govt could consider annual targets to help rein in deficits. - Among the FX majors, USD remained under pressure across the board as markets continued to reprice the likelihood of a liftoff in US fed funds rate following the perception of a rather dovish set of comments from Fed Chair Yellen to Congress. USD/JPY fell about 40pips to 118.60, AUD/USD was up 60pip above $0.7880 with added lift after stronger China flash PMI, GBP/USD was up about 30pips near 3-month highs of $1.5480, and NZD/USD was up about 60pips from the lows around $0.7540.***Equities***US markets: - CBI: Reports Q4 $1.47 v $1.43e, R$3.37B v $3.45Be; +4.7% afterhours- VRSK: Reports Q4 $0.65 v $0.63e, R$464.9M v $456Me; +1.5% afterhours- HLS: Reports Q4 $0.55(adj) v $0.52e, R$613.4M v $605Me; +0.3% afterhours- FSLR: Reports Q4 $1.89 (gaap) v $0.71e, R$1.01B v $1.27Be; -0.9% afterhours- PZZA: Reports Q4 $0.52 v $0.50e, R$425.5M v $412Me; -4.2% afterhours- HPQ: Reports Q1 $0.92 v $0.91e, R$26.8B v $27.4Be; -7.0% afterhours- SLCA: Reports Q4 $0.61 v $0.71e, R$249.6Mv $238Me; -8.0% afterhours- DWA: Reports Q4 -$3.08 v -$3.15e, R$234.2M v $268Me; -8.7% afterhours- LC: Reports Q4 $0.01 v $0.01e, R$69.6M v $65.2Me; -10.4% afterhours- SAM: Reports Q4 $1.40 v $1.51e, R$233M v $239Me; -12.8% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: Wanxiang Qiaochao 000559.CN -1.8% (to delay launch of Fisker Karma EV); Surfstitch Group SRF.AU +4.6% (H1 results); Southern Cross Austereo SXL.AU +12.8% (H1 results); Retail Food Group RFG.AU +11.3% (H1 results); Seven West Media SVW.AU +9.0% (H1 results); Wynn Macau 1128.HK -6.4%, Sands China 1928.HK -6.2% (Macau, Beijing consider to restrict arrivals from mainland)- Financials: Huaxia Bank 600015.CN -1.6% (Deutsche Bank may re-consider holdings in Huaxia Bank); Cedar Woods Properties CWP.AU +4.5% (H1 results); Charter Hall Group CHC.AU +4.3% (H1 results)- Materials: Rusal 486.HK +1.8% (FY14 results); Pact Group Holdings PGH.AU -10.0% (H1 results)- Industrials: Worley Parsons WOR.AU -14.1% (H1 results); MacMahon Holdings MAH.AU +26.5% (H1 results)- Healthcare: Ain Pharmaciez 9627.JP +10.6% (9-month results) - Source
