The good news: Brazil’s trade surplus reached $5.882 billion in June, the nation’s Trade Ministry said today. And now the not so good news: Brazil's central bank cut its forecasts for economic growth and increased inflation projections as the economy deteriorated in the second quarter. In its quarterly inflation report released Thursday, the bank forecast gross domestic product growth of 1.6% this year, down from the 2.5% forecast in the March report. In both cases, the figures were in line with market projections. The government recently reduced its GDP expansion forecast down to 2.5% from 3%, while the markets on Monday lowered their projection for the seventh week running. Now set at 1.55%, the estimation has almost halved from the 3% predicted in January. As for consumer prices, the bank forecast inflation ending 2018 at 4.2%, up from the 3.8% forecast in March but still below the 4.5% target.

Invesco's Anness: why I'm buying emerging markets: Invesco Perpetual Global Opportunities manager Stephen Anness has taken advantage of investment opportunities created by the emerging markets sell-off. Stephen Anness, manager of Invesco Perpetual Global Opportunities has increased exposure to emerging markets following the recent sell-off. ‘The last two months have been a difficult time for anything emerging markets-related and we’ve been finding a number of opportunities where the common thread is emerging markets exposure,’ the manager said. These include companies listed in an emerging market, as well as developed market companies viewed as an emerging market proxy due to their significant revenues from developing economies. For example, Anness bought Sberbank, a state-owned Russian financial services company that was among the worst hit stocks from US sanctions launched against Russian oligarchs in April. He has also increased the fund’s exposure to Brazil. Here, he bought shares in the country’s largest telecommunications provider Telefônica Brasil and small house builder EZTEC ahead of the general election in October. This has created uncertainty and resulted in market weakness. The team also initiated a position in Santander earlier this year and hold Standard Chartered in the portfolio, two banks with significant emerging markets exposure. Anness added that a number of Asian companies in the technology supply chain are currently on the radar, including Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. ‘These are very good companies with very good balance sheets – some have come down by 20 or 30%. The to-do list is growing quite nicely with all of this volatility,’ he said. Although it can feel counter-intuitive, Anness says investors must embrace volatility in order to tap into attractive investment opportunities. ‘As much as I dislike it in the short term and find it quite frustrating, I’ve always said we should embrace volatility. When everyone is nervous about life and people are losing their heads that’s the optimum time to be buying,’ the fund manager said. When we find an idea, we fund it,’ said Anness. ‘I don’t want the tail of the portfolio to grow and have lots of irrelevant holdings take up too much time,’ he said. Value bias: While Invesco Perpetual Global Opportunities does not follow a strict value, growth, momentum or quality philosophy, Anness notes that the fund currently has a skew towards value. The team looks for industry leaders – best-in-class companies that can compound value for many years to come – trading at a ‘substantial’ discount to their view of intrinsic value. ‘This discount affords us a margin of safety – a strong level of asymmetry,’ he said. At the other end of the spectrum, the team invests in ‘special situations’. These are companies that are undergoing a turnaround under new management or have fallen out of favour because of a specific event.

Brazilian equities extended their recent slide amid political and fiscal worries on Friday. Stocks on the benchmark Bovespa stock index tumbled across the board for a fourth straight session, as traders continued to fret ahead of an unpredictable October election in which market-friendly candidates have failed to gain traction, according to recent polls. Recent government intervention in oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA has also caused traders to question the resolve of the current government - and the ability of the next one - to stay on a path of pro-market policies and relative fiscal austerity. "It's still an uncertain scenario, without a positive conclusion coming to light for local financial markets," said a Rio de Janeiro-based trader.

Brazil's economic expansion continued in the first quarter as the country's vital agricultural sector expanded rapidly from the previous three-month period. Gross domestic product grew a seasonally adjusted 0.4% in the first quarter from the last three months of 2017, and expanded 1.2% from the same period a year earlier, Brazil's statistics agency said Wednesday. The agricultural sector grew 1.4% in the first quarter from the last three months of 2017, while contracting 2.6% from the same period a year earlier. Industry grew 0.1% in the quarter and 1.6% from a year earlier, while investment increased 0.6% in the quarter and 3.5% from a year earlier.

Even the normally bullish emerging markets champion Mark Mobius said there’s worse to come for emerging markets. According to the expert, there’s a danger of contagion from the deteriorating situation in Turkey, and Argentina and Brazil aren’t doing well. “We still could have some downside in the emerging markets. “But selectively, you have some good opportunities. Now would be a stock picker’s market,”

Brazil's Bovespa equities index fell over half a percent on Friday, as a truckers' protest entered its fifth day, hobbling a wide range of industries from aviation to agribusiness. Negotiators for several truckers groups protesting high fuel prices had agreed on Thursday to suspend a nationwide highway blockade after the government vowed to subsidize and stabilize diesel prices, which may cost the state some 5 billion reais ($1.37 billion) this year. But adhesion to the agreement has been spotty at best, with police saying on Friday that there were still blockades in 24 of the nation's 26 states, including 74 just in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, a key trade route with Argentina. The key automaking sector ground to a halt on Friday, as did Santos, Latin America's largest port, while grocers' aisles went understocked and long queues formed outside gas stations. In the early afternoon, the federal government authorized the military to clear highways by force, while Sao Paulo, South America's largest city, declared a state of emergency. "Everyone is focused on the truckers," said a Rio de Janeiro-based trader. "The government has little or no negotiating room." The Bovespa had fallen 0.6 percent by the afternoon. That fall would have been worse if it were not for a 2.1 percent rise by state-run oil major Petroleo Brasileiro SA, whose shares had previously tanked after the company cut diesel prices 10 percent, presumably to assuage truckers. The announcement of subsidies by the government on Thursday made clear that the state, not Petrobras alone, would bear the brunt of the losses.

The government of Brazil lowered its prediction for 2018 GDP growth from 3% to 2.5%, the Ministry of Planning announced on Tuesday. In 2017, the Brazilian economy grew by 1 percent of GDP, ending a bitter two-year recessive cycle. Inflation in Brazil unexpectedly slowed in mid-May to 2.7%. The result undershot even the lowest estimate in the poll, Standard Chartered's forecast of 2.75 percent, and held well below the bottom end of this year's central bank target range of 4.5 percent, plus or minus 1.5 percentage points. Double-digit unemployment rates and widespread idle capacity have kept a lid on price hikes as Latin America's largest economy recovers slowly from its deepest recession in decades, despite record-low interest rates. While a selloff in the Brazilian real to a two-year low could generate inflationary pressures by boosting import prices, analysts say the weak economy is likely to curb the pass-through effect. The central bank last week defied widespread expectations it would cut interest rates in a decision that was widely seen as a response to a weaker currency. The minutes from its meeting showed policymakers weighed a rate cut before ultimately deciding to hold borrowing costs. "The central bank made it clear at this month's meeting that the easing cycle is now at an end," said economists at Capital Economics in a report. "Inflation shouldn't be a major headache ... instead, the next move in rates is likely to hinge on what happens around October's presidential election."

Surprising such a big drop in the share price of JPB of 6% when the Brazil Bovespa was only down 0.65% and so far this year is up 8.74%. Investors are concerned about the future as the country will elect a new president in October, and many market-watchers are worried that the next leader could halt or reverse economic reforms begun by President Michel Temer. Markets have largely supported those reforms. The Brazilian economy contracted by 0.13 percent in the first quarter of the year, according to the central bank's Index of Economic Activity. The figures for 2018 so far show a worse development than predicted. Due to worsening indicators, financial analysts in Brazil on Monday lowered their estimations for 2018 from 2.7 to 2.5 percent while the Brazilian government is maintaining its estimation of 3 percent GDP growth for 2018. The Brazilian, Argentinian and Mexican currencies weakened and stocks across Latin America fell on Friday as a global emerging-market selloff drove many investors to unwind bets on stronger currencies despite increased central bank intervention. The real fell as much as 2 percent against the dollar to the weakest since March 2016. The currency weakness came even after Brazil's central bank increased market intervention and unexpectedly refrained from cutting interest rates this week.

The Brazilian economy could expand more than the central bank’s 2.6 percent forecast in 2018, central bank chief Ilan Goldfajn said on Tuesday, though the official estimate is “well-calibrated.” Speaking in an event in São Paulo, Goldfajn said that the nation’s recovery from the deepest recession in decades still looks consistent despite recent volatility in economic activity readings.

Great expectations by Marina Gerner: So what is the outlook for the BRICS? Stammers says that, ultimately, China and India are looking to become leading global providers of goods and services, so they make things. In contrast, Russia and Brazil are expected to become the global giants in commodities, so they provide the basic raw materials needed to make those things. Paul McNamara, an investment director and lead manager on emerging market bond, currency and hedge fund strategies at GAM, says: ‘China and India matter a lot; the other two are secondary.’ All the BRICS countries face different obstacles. ‘Russia is crippled by dysfunctional institutions and corruption, but Brazil is slightly better off,’ comments McNamara. Redwood says Russia has ‘suffered a setback from the lower oil price, which has hit its export earnings and tax revenues, and from Western actions, which have made some trade and transactions more difficult’. Redwood observes that Brazil has been through a bad political and economic crisis, with recession, high inflation and difficult corruption problems forcing changes of government. He says: ‘There is now some hope of recovery, but there remain deep-seated economic and political problems to resolve fully.’ South Africa too has been suffering from political instability and failing economic policies. ‘Future sustained progress in both Brazil and South Africa will need stable reform-oriented governments that can shake off the problems of the past,’ he adds. India has become the poster child for reform-led recovery in emerging markets, argues James Penny, senior investment manager at TAM Asset Management. ‘With the appointment of prime minster Modi, the country has been put on a path of steep and deep economic and government reform to bring its economy and vast middle-class population to the forefront in the modern market.’ ‘India has scope to become one of the world’s largest economies, but it still has a lot further to go to increase incomes per head.’ Moreover, South Africa, Russia and to some extent Brazil rely on mining and the production of oil and commodities, whereas China and India are more dependent on imports of raw materials. Dominant China: However, Penny says the biggest and, on the global stage, the loudest of the BRICS nations remains China. The country continues to make headlines speculating about whether its economy could suffer a ‘hard landing’ in the face of its highly leveraged corporate sector and a fall in GDP to 6 per cent. But he is keen to put these figures in context: ‘Let’s be clear here,’ he says. ‘The US is struggling to find 4 per cent GDP growth, the UK is looking at 1.5 per cent, and the world is worrying about a Chinese slowdown to 6 per cent GDP growth?’ -China, not India, will dominate future Asian growth: The growth rates of the BRICS economies, with the possible exception of India’s, over the next 10 years is likely to be about half that of the previous decade, according to Smith. India’s and China’s shares of global GDP growth will probably be smaller, but the countries will remain dominant. ‘China will remain the largest [BRICS] economy and should continue to command investors’ attention,’ he says. ‘But if India opens up and reforms, investors should begin to devote more of their attention to the subcontinent.’ That said, he points out that, given the relative size of the two economies today, it would still take more than 30 years for India’s GDP to exceed China’s, even if India achieves all its reform goals and China achieves few of its aims. Ultimately, the strength of the BRICS as an investment proposition is their very diversity, argues Ballard. ‘They are so different that they provide an element of diversification beneficial for any long term investor.’

Yields on Brazilian interest rate futures dropped on Thursday after the central bank unexpectedly indicated it will continue cutting interest rates, while fears of a U.S. trade war with China helped put pressure on Latin American markets. The bank on Wednesday reduced the benchmark Selic rate by 25 basis points to an all-time low of 6.50 percent. But policymakers were explicit in forecasting another cut at their May meeting, contradicting the consensus that this week would mark the end of the deepest easing cycle in a decade. After that, unless conditions change radically, it would stand pat, according to a policy statement. "Unless the Brazilian real comes under pressure for domestic or external reasons, the central bank will be in no hurry to begin the tightening cycle," economists at Societe Generale wrote in a report.

QP - If you would like to look at a general Asian trust ex-Japan there is JP Morgan Asian Investment Trust (JAI) which is also paying an increasing dividend on a quarterly basis. I do not know whether my e-mails to JP Morgan's trusts have any influence, however for a couple years I pushed very hard for JAI to invest in Vietnam and guess what, they started to do so late 2015. Another interview Mobius recently gave: This summer he plans to launch a fund management firm called Mobius Capital Partners and plans to continue to invest in emerging and frontier markets and will help manage environmental, social and governance strategies. As well as China, Mobius is bullish on Vietnam and Brazil.

QP - Mobius has set up his own Emerging Markets Fund and is why I think he is doing the rounds. India - I would stick with JP Morgan trusts...JII which is solely invested in India. A number of times I have written to JII asking them if this trust could invest a small percentage in other Indian sub-continent countries in a similar way to the China trust invests in Taiwan and Hong Kong, the Brazilian trust in other Latin American Countries and Russia in other CIS states.
