European Bond Research - September 4, 2019

Posted by Pierre Robert on Sep 4, 2019 12:16:29 PM
THREE EVENTS HELPED TURN markets and bond yields higher. The first was Boris Johnson losing a majority of parliament, possibly forcing an extension to Brexit and a deal. Hong Kong's tensions are lessened with the much lower possibility of Chinese intervention. China announced a stimulus program to stabilize its economy. FTSE 100 +0.44%, German DAX +0.89%, CAC 40 +1.1%, STOXX Europe 600 +0.82%. The 10-year Gilt gained 8.9 basis points.

RENAULT LOST A TOP EXECUTIVE  due to the continued strife between Nissan and Renault. Those tensions threaten Nissan and Renault's alliance and make a merger with Fiat less likely. (Advantage Data Inc.).  Extensive corporate-bond index data showed a net daily yield increment for high-grade versus high-yield constituents. High-grade bonds edged out high-yield debt as of 3 PM, London time.  Among European high-grade bonds showing a concurrence of top price gains at appreciable volumes traded,  Renault SA (EUR) 2% 9/28/2026 made some analysts' 'Conviction buy' lists. (See the chart for Renault SA  bonds below).
