Daily Morning Note – 06 March 2020



Asian stocks looked primed for heavy losses after U.S. equities tumbled with Treasury yields on renewed worries about the impact of the coronavirus. Gold surged with the yen and the Swiss franc, and equity futures declined more than 2% in Japan and Australia.

The S&P 500 Index fell more than 3%, with investor confidence shaken as virus cases continued to rise across the U.S. despite efforts to contain the outbreak and its impact. The yield on 10-year Treasuries slumped to as low as 0.90% and Australian equivalents tracked those moves Friday, plumbing fresh all-time lows. Global equities have recovered some of the recent losses but still remain about 10% below the all-time high reached last month.

The remaining stake will be held by Shanghai Shengji Industrial, a subsidiary of a leading developer in China, CIFI Holdings (Group), according to a media statement by Keppel Corporation.

HONGKONG Land Holdings reported a 92 per cent drop in net profit for the full year ended December 2019 to US$198 million from US$2.5 billion a year ago owing to net losses from lower valuations of the group’s investment properties versus net gains a year ago.

India’s central bank on Thursday appointed an administrator for Yes Bank and limited withdrawals in a rare late-night move to help shore up the country’s fourth-largest private lender.

Airlines face a revenue hit of up to US$113 billion in 2020 due to coronavirus, a trade group warned on Thursday, as more consumers cancel trips due to the outbreak.
