MAY DAY MAY DAY - Tories loose majority and tech stocks stumble - Three to buy with updates

by , 13 June 2017

Global Markets are busy digesting the UK election results, which indicated the Tories have lost their small majority. The UK now sits with a Hung Parliament, which will see the UK enter the Brexit negotiations set to start next week on the back foot. It will be interesting to see if the EU takes a harder line with them than previously expected. The weaker pound should buoy the FTSE. The ECB left interest rates unchanged.

A sector rotation seems to be on the cards as tech stocks listed on the Nasdaq fell more than 2.6%, while financials and industrials rose on Friday.

Higher US rates are on the cards as traders see a 95.8% probability of an interest rate hike after the Fed conclude a two-day policy meeting on 14 June.

On a local front, SA was spared a downgrade to junk by Moody as they dropped local and foreign currency ratings to one level above junk status with a negative outlook. Around 90% of SA's debt is Rand denominated, so a fall to junk in the local currency could spur a sell off of Rand denominated debt and cause a much weaker Rand.

All the negativity has seen our market continue a sell off, with today, marking the ninth red day in a row. We anticipated this dip as we near futures closeout and are still expecting a rally into the close out auction at 12h00 on Thursday 15 June.

Last week, our JSE All share Index was softer by 1,3%, Financials fell 2,4% on growth concerns and the Moody's downgrades. Resources bucked the trend, appreciating 1,2%.

Last week's movers and shakers…

• Best Performers: Datatec, Sibanye, Assore, Adcorp and AngloGold.

• Worst Performers: Brait, Transhex, MMI, Steinhoff and Torre.

Datatec responded well to announcements of the sale of its subsidiary Westcon; while Brait continues to be downgraded based on the performance of UK assets.
