European Bond Research as of December 6th, 2017

JUNK BONDS CAME UNDER MORE PRESSURE,  outpaced by investment-grade debt in net prices, for a second day.   Profit-taking,  political infighting  (in both Europe and the U.S.), and the occurrence of massive   pullbacks in shares of Hammerson PLC and Saga PLC, all factored into the mostly risk-averse European session.   More bumps along the road in Brexit  (British exit from EU) were also in the mix, as London traders faced the backdrop of an earlier sell-off in Asian markets, while the   oil-and-energy sector was roiled  by a pullback in global crude-oil prices.

CAUTION AND PROFIT-TAKING kept Europe's   investment-grade bonds with a slight edge  over junk debt in today's trading. A   mix of European economic data  kept price swings channeled in fairly thin bands, as   inflation took a downturn,   GDP came in above forecast, and jobs data showed the   lowest unemployment since '09. The   oil-and-energy group fared well, giving important sector cues to corporate-bond traders, as   Nymex  oil prices hovered around $54 and   BP PLC shares initially rose 3.6%. However BNP Paribas weighed on the financial group, off 2.9% on disappointing quarterly revenue, while   Weir Group PLC tanked 7.3%.

CAUTION BECAME MORE ACUTE, leading European investment-grade bonds to easily outpace junk debt in net price gains linked to actual trades. Bids for high-yield debt were damped in parallel with a downside shift to the red in the pan-European Stoxx 600, as investors 'hunkered down' ahead of a key U.K. election vote Thursday. In a 'tough-to-call' test of Prime Minister Theresa May's conservative majority, implications will emerge for her forward strength in Brexit negotiations. Meanwhile a Middle-East spat between Qatar and its neighbors weighed on high-yield debt prices, as Nymex oil fluctuated in the $47 range.
