    Business and Market Discussion / View from India

    Troubled property developer China Evergrande said Thursday that it will suspend trading of all its local bonds for one day for investors to assess the impact of a credit rating cut by China Chengxin International. Evergrande's Shanghai traded corporate bonds were downgraded to ‘A’ from ‘AA’ by China Chengxin.

    Hong Kong shares continued their steep decline into a fourth day on concerns over the potential default of China Evergrande and tighter scrutiny of the Macau casino industry. The Hang Seng Index touched a ten-month low. The benchmark index was down over 500 points at one stage, before closing 365 points, or 1.5% lower, at 24,667. The Hang Seng Tech Index tumbled 1%. Shares of China Evergrande fell to their lowest level since October 2011, losing more than 10% at one stage before closing 6.4% lower, taking its losses for 2021 to over 82%. Macau casino operators were hammered again yesterday by regulatory risks following their crash on Wednesday. The Macau government has opened a 45-day public consultation on revising its gaming law. The sell-off has erased more than US$19 billion in market value from Macau casino stocks over the last two days.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Kenny Wen of Everbright Sun Hung Kai and Nate Taplin from the Wall Street Journal’s Heard on the Street. With a view from India is Toby Lawson, CEO of Societe Generale India.

    Kenny Wen, Wealth Management Strategist at Everbright Sun Hung Kai says it is still too early to be looking for a bottom in Hong Kong stocks despite the Hang Seng index being the world’s worst performer this year amongst global indices.

    Nate Taplin, Asia Editor of the Wall Street Journal’s Heard on the Street thinks that the increased scrutiny of Macau's gaming industry is raising concerns in investors’ minds about further regulatory crackdowns.

    Business and Market Discussion

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced yesterday a budget to stabilise the economy, containing HK$120bn of counter cyclical measures. But the level of sweeteners at HK$80 billion this year, is 33% lower than last year’s HK$120 billion. The budget deficit is forecast to be a record HK$257.6 billion this year. That’s less than the government’s previous forecast of HK$300bn.

    In a budget of halves, there were several familiar measures, but at half last year’s level. The salaries tax and profits tax waiver for the coming year was halved from HK$20,000 last year to HK$10,000 this year. And the handouts to the needy were also halved, with people getting an extra half a month’s worth of welfare, old-age, and disability allowances, instead of a full month as before. Last year’s cash handout of HK$10,000 was replaced with HK$5,000 worth of electronic spending vouchers.
    Shares in Hong Kong plunged after financial secretary Paul Chan increased stamp duty from 0.1 to 0.13%. It’s the first time stamp duty in the city has been increased for almost 30 years. The Hang Seng Index tumbled 914 points or 3% to end the day at 29,718, its biggest fall in 9 months. Shares of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing fell as much as 12.3% before later trimming losses to 8.8% but still its biggest drop since 2015.
    On today’s Money Talk, reviewing the 2021-22 budget is personal wealth advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong and Samuel Faveur, Chief Executive Officer of Mandarin Capital.

    Personal Wealth Advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, thinks that the measures contained in Hong Kong’s 2021-22 budget are "band-aids" but not a real cure for an economy affected by the pandemic.


    Samuel Faveur Chief Executive Officer at Mandarin Capital laments that the budget is not efficient enough as the measures introduced lean towards corporates and is rather weak on the social aspect.


    Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong thinks that the new unemployment loan scheme is unlikely to work and believes that more follow up plans and execution detail will be needed.
