Welcome to our Daily Morning Note from our Research team!

PHILLIP SUMMARY

Stocks looked set for a cautious start Monday as Russia’s war in Ukraine pushes into a second month and questions swirl about the economic impact of tighter U.S. monetary policy to fight high inflation. Equity futures were steady for the U.S. and earlier pointed to muted opens in Japan and Australia. China’s planned Covid-linked lockdown in Shanghai may sap the mood when markets in Hong Kong and the mainland begin trading later. Sovereign yields jumped in Australia and New Zealand amid pressure on bonds stemming from concerns about price pressures and tightening monetary policy. The fixed-income selloff pushed the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield to almost 2.5% last week, past a technical trend line that has effectively served as a ceiling since the late 1980s. Crude oil retreated to about $111 a barrel. The dollar was mixed against major peers, with the yen around a six-year low against the greenback.

BREAKING NEWS


SG

Agri-food giant Olam Group has agreed to sell a 35.4 per cent stake in Olam Agri Holdings to the Saudi Agricultural and Livestock Investment Company (Salic) for US$1.2 billion. Salic is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Public Investment Fund of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In a call to discuss the transaction, Olam Group’s chief executive Sunny Verghese said this move unlocks the “hidden value” of the Olam Agri business in the group’s portfolio and unlocks value for the shareholders of the group.

Capitaland Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT) and CapitaLand Open End Real Estate Fund (Coref) have entered into an agreement to acquire a Grade-A office building at 79 Robinson Road for S$1.3 billion. The purchase will be done by acquiring 70 per cent and 30 per cent respectively of the shares of the property holding company Southernwood Property Ptd Ltd, CICT and Coref said in a bourse filing on Friday (Mar 25).

Excelpoint Technology is in talks with a third party on a potential transaction involving the company’s shares, the electronics component distributor said in a bourse filing on Friday (Mar 25) night. Addressing the recent price movements of its shares on the Singapore Exchange, the mainboard-listed company said discussions are ongoing with the unnamed third party. However, it added that there is “no certainty or assurance that such discussions will progress beyond the current stage or that any transaction will materialise as a result of such discussions”.

Singtel’s wholly-owned subsidiary Singapore Telecom International has monetised a 1.6 per cent stake in telecommunications company Airtel Africa through a market placement. The telco raised net proceeds of about S$150 million from the placement exercise, which was “well oversubscribed”, it said in a bourse filing on Friday (Mar 25). The exercise was part of the mainboard-listed company’s capital recycling strategy, it said.


US

General Motors will halt pickup truck production at a factory in Indiana for two weeks next month due to an ongoing shortage of semiconductor chips that has wreaked havoc on the global automotive industry for more than a year. The supply of chips, which are critical parts for new vehicles, was expected to gradually improve for automakers throughout this year, but other problems in the supply chain, including Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, have clouded such expectations.

Bed Bath & Beyond announced Friday that it has struck a deal with activist investor Ryan Cohen, sending the company’s stock higher. Shares closed 2.2% higher Friday. The home goods retailer said in a news release that three people chosen by Cohen’s firm, RC Ventures, will immediately join Bed Bath’s board as independent directors. They include Marjorie Bowen, Shelly Lombard, and Ben Rosenzweig.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

This material is provided by Phillip Capital Management (S) Ltd (“PCM”) for general information only and does not constitute a recommendation, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of any offer to invest in any of the exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) or the unit trust (“Products”) mentioned herein. It does not have any regard to your specific investment objectives, financial situation and any of your particular needs. You should read the Prospectus and the accompanying Product Highlights Sheet (“PHS”) for key features, key risks and other important information of the Products and obtain advice from a financial adviser (“FA“) pursuant to a separate engagement before making a commitment to invest in the Products. In the event that you choose not to obtain advice from a FA, you should assess whether the Products are suitable for you before proceeding to invest. A copy of the Prospectus and PHS are available from PCM, any of its Participating Dealers (“PDs“) for the ETF, or any of its authorised distributors for the unit trust managed by PCM.  

An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products. There can be no assurance that investment objectives will be achieved.  

Where applicable, fund(s) may invest in financial derivatives and/or participate in securities lending and repurchase transactions for the purpose of hedging and/or efficient portfolio management, subject to the relevant regulatory requirements. PCM reserves the discretion to determine if currency exposure should be hedged actively, passively or not at all, in the best interest of the Products.  

The regular dividend distributions, out of either income and/or capital, are not guaranteed and subject to PCM’s discretion. Past payout yields and payments do not represent future payout yields and payments. Such dividend distributions will reduce the available capital for reinvestment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Products. Please refer to <www.phillipfunds.com> for more information in relation to the dividend distributions.  

The information provided herein may be obtained or compiled from public and/or third party sources that PCM has no reason to believe are unreliable. Any opinion or view herein is an expression of belief of the individual author or the indicated source (as applicable) only. PCM makes no representation or warranty that such information is accurate, complete, verified or should be relied upon as such.

The Products is not offered to U.S. Persons. PhillipCapital Group of Companies, including PCM, their affiliates and/or their officers, directors and/or employees may own or have positions in the Products.
