loganair: Ian Cowie: I may be nuts but I like Latin American trust now by Ian Cowie: They say a drowning man will clutch at straws but this DIY investor was pathetically grateful to find one investment trust firmly in the blue when his screen was awash with red during the global markets sell-off on Monday. While the FTSE 100 index of Britain’s biggest businesses slipped to a six-month low and other benchmarks fared even worse, an unloved emerging markets fund I have been holding onto out of sheer contrariness lived up to its name and emerged from the day with its share price 5% higher. On looking more closely, I see that it has risen by 12% in the last month, having lost a similar amount over the last year, but is 59% up over the last three years, according to data from Numis Securities. Its name? Please don’t laugh but it’s BlackRock Latin American (BRLA). Like many investors, I had grown so used to bad news from Brazil — in which the trust has nearly two thirds of its assets invested — that I had sub-consciously stopped looking at this long-standing holding because it hurt to do so when everything else was going well. Now the tide has turned elsewhere, however temporarily, BRLA has taken a turn for the better. What’s going on? Perhaps counter-intuitively, politics can provide uplift for markets, as well as its more familiar depressing influences. It seems Brazil has woken up to the risk of turning into another Venezuela and the fifth-biggest electorate on earth has voted for a right-wing populist. Jair Bolsonaro, a former army captain who talks nostalgically about Brazil’s military rule between 1964 and 1985, has a long way to go before gaining power but the prospect of socialism, higher taxes and confiscation, appears to be receding. Bolsonaro’s success in the first ballot was enough to boost Brazilian share prices and provide a bright feature amid the gloom this week. More importantly, his pledges to cut tax, privatise state-owned businesses and reform ruinously unaffordable state pensions might form the basis for long-term economic recovery. Brazilians don’t need to be interested in political theory to see the practical consequences of the alternative ideology. Millions of Venezuelans are fleeing from the latest example of how socialists set out to create a paradise on earth but end up building an open-air prison where dissenters disappear. But international investors should not really be surprised by the ‘Bolsonaro bump’. After all, the election of another right-wing populist in North America in November, 2016, was followed by a 50% increase in the Dow Jones index of US blue chip shares. To trump that, so to speak, most economists and metropolitan media pundits — like me — are still sucking their teeth and warning that Bolsonaro will struggle to deliver medium to long-term economic growth. That may explain why BlackRock Latin American is trading at a 16% discount to net asset value (NAV). But I cannot resist pointing out we have heard such doom-saying before. While none of us has a crystal ball, we can all take comfort from experts’ inability to predict the future in the past. Pole position in that fiercely-contested field of failure must go to the Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman. Immediately after Donald Trump’s election victory, Krugman sagely observed in the New York Times that: ‘If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.’ Since then the economist has been telling anyone who will listen that the president and his tax cuts — the biggest in 30 years — have nothing to do with the economy or share prices. Maybe so, but the recovery that never was seems to be going very well. No wonder City traders define an economist as a man who knows 69 different ways to make love but doesn’t know any women. So this DIY investor intends to hang on to his stake in Brazil — even if naysayers claim I’m nuts.
loganair: 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.
loganair: QP - I Invest in JPB as a Retail Investor there are few other ways to invest in Brazil. And as you mentioned it is an easy way to invest in Brazil, especially if one has other JP Morgan Investment Trusts. Overall the Trusts share price has doubled in the past couple of years. I do agree with you about the 2% fees that the trust charges, far too high. The excuse the trusts Mangers make is because JPB is only a small trust in value terms they have to charge a higher percentage fee. Personally I would not invest in Unit Trusts, especially with a recession around the corner. With a Unit Trust, when investors sell their 'units' the Trust has to sell their shares to pay out whereas an Investment Trust does not have to. Compared to other 'Vehicles' of investments, Investment trusts are easy and simple to understand and that's the way I like it. The upside may not be as much, however the downside is not as down as other Vehicles. As far as I can see there are only 3 Investment Trusts for Latin America, JPB, Black Rock Latin America and Aberdeen Latin America Income.
loganair: It seems to me, much of the rise in JPBs share price over the past couple of days has been the narrowing of its negative NAV.
loganair: I do not usually make predictions on a share price, however it seems to me that JPB may reach 50p far, far earilier than I ever thought it may do and can now see possibly that 60p is on the cards by the end of this year.
loganair: Do Brazil’s woes mark the bottom for emerging markets? By John Stepek. The stockmarket can be brutal on the ego. We’ve all seen it. A chief executive or a high-ranking board member steps down – and their company’s share price goes up. Ouch. Obviously, the bruised ego pains can be soothed by the corresponding increase in the value of their shares package. But still. It can’t be nice to know that your contribution to the company effectively had a negative value. So think how much worse former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva must feel. He gets taken in by the local police for questioning. And suddenly it’s the end of an entire nation’s bear market… Brazil’s rich political soap opera: Last week, former Brazilian president Lula was “detained̶1; as part of a probe (the “Lava Jato” probe) into tales of corruption at Brazil’s state-owned oil giant Petrobras. Suggestions are that Lula (who left office in 2011) was getting kickbacks of some sort. Investigations are ongoing. But it’s all just part of Brazil’s rich political soap opera. Current president Dilma Rousseff (also of the ruling “Workers’; Party”) has separately been accused of knowingly manipulating public accounts. An impeachment process against her is also under way. Yet markets have shot up on the Lula news. The Brazilian real jumped by more than 2% against the dollar, and the Brazilian stock exchange – the Bovespa – surged. As Neil Shearing of Capital Economics notes, the key here is that if the investigation into Lula can prove that funds taken from Petrobras were used to finance Rousseff’s re-election campaign in 2014, then that result could eventually end up being annulled, and fresh elections called. But that’s a long way into the future. As Shearing puts it, markets seem to be “looking through the possibility of a further period of political uncertainty and towards the possibility of new elections and a shift towards more centrist market-friendly policies”. This does seem somewhat hopeful, particularly – as Shearing notes – given “the backdrop of an economy that is in its worst recession since the 1930s, together with growing disenchantment with the ruling elite”. That’s not exactly a recipe for electing a market-friendly government (as we’ve seen in both the US and the UK). But could there be more to Brazil’s rebound than this? The real reason to buy emerging markets – they’re cheap: It’s always darkest before dawn. Buy when there’s blood on the streets. The bear case is always most compelling right before everything turns around. They’re all good contrarian points, and they’re exactly the sort of sentiment that John Authers was getting at in the Financial Times this weekend when he asked if Lula’s predicament could mark the bottom for emerging markets. As you’ll have noticed, it’s not just Brazil that’s been suffering. Most emerging markets have been crushed by a combination of the strong dollar and collapsing commodity prices. But that’s left them looking cheap. Many emerging markets are trading at levels not seen since 2008. And many of their currencies are at record lows versus the US dollar. Meanwhile, the kicker is that the two factors that have been crushing them have slowly but surely been turning around in the last few months. The prices of several key raw materials have been creeping back up. And as for the US dollar, following the Fed’s tiny rate rise in December, and the fit of market nerves that ensued, the market no longer expects rates to keep rising quite as rapidly as it once feared. As a result, the dollar’s relentless rise has eased somewhat. In short, while Lula’s troubles are a nice, big, obvious news event to hang a “This is the bottom” sign on, the reality is more straightforward than that. As Authers puts it: “It might well make sense to buy emerging markets again, simply because after long years of a bear market they are far cheaper, while the US market looks expensive by almost any sensible metric.”
loganair: 31st December 2015 - Portfolio analysis by JP Morgan: The trust's net asset value outperformed the benchmark in December, while the share price also underperformed. Asset allocation was positive, driven by our reduced exposure to both energy and materials. Commodity prices including oil and iron ore fell precipitously in 2015, driving down returns in these sectors. Energy and materials represent two of the trust's most significant underweight positions at the sector level. Stock selection was weak and detracted from overall performance during the month, notably in consumer staples and industrials. During the month, we added to our position in Cielo, a leading payment processor in Brazil, following some recent underperformance. The portfolio is tilted towards the export sector and beneficiaries of the weak currency. In the domestic market, we continue to limit our exposure to stocks with secular drivers or business models that have proven relatively recession-proof.
loganair: 30th November 2015 - Portfolio analysis by JP Morgan: The trust's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark. Stock selection in the materials sector contributed positively to performance. We have a longstanding underweight in the sector as we struggle to find companies that meet our fundamental requirements based on economics, duration and governance. Our lack of exposure to Vale, a Brazilian multinational diversified metals and mining corporation, added to performance. The Brazilian government has filed a lawsuit suing Vale and BHP Billiton for USD 5.2 billion in order to remedy environmental issues caused by a collapsed dam. The stock fell approximately 25% on the back of this negative news. Stock selection was strong in both consumer sectors?discretionary and staples. Stock selection was weak in industrials, as a weak currency continued to weigh on returns, but our overweight in the sector was rewarded. Holdings in information technology were positive, while financials hurt from both a stock and asset allocation perspective.
loganair: Votiem, I buy on a monthly bases via JP Morgan monthly investment plan, which I switch around the various JP Morgan Investment Trusts. When in comes to my monthly investments my investment time frame is long term, usually 10 years or maybe more, this month and last I have doubled the amount I invest and am happy do continue to do so at this amount until JPB rises above 50p as at some point next year the Brazilian economy is expected to return to growth and in my good opinion at that time the JPB share price will also rise.
loganair: Each year the share holders of JPB vote on whether to shut up shop or carry on. What worries me is this year the share holders may decide to shut up shop right when Brazil is at rock bottom, at the worse possible time when JPB is at their lowest share price, when in my good opinion is the time to buy. I look at my investments in Investment Trusts as a long term investment, at least 5 to 10 years rather than short term Speculation. If Brazil starts having some good governance and gets their financial house back into order, the current finance minister has a very good reputation, then I can see JPB share price doubling in 5 years.
