Lakson Outlook - March 2016

Economic & Markets Review - Pakistan Economy CPI inflation clocked in line with expectations at 3.9% YoY in March 2016, slightly down from 4.0%, last month. On a month-on-month basis, there was a minor increase of 0.2% in as compared to a decline of 0.3% during February. Food inflation picked up by 0.2% in March compared to a decline of 2.0% last month. The rebound in inflation is expected to be contained in the coming months, even though the government has slightly raised petrol prices, which will have a direct and indirect inflationary impact.

Yield Curve 12.0% 11.0% 10.0% 9.0%

Macro indicators continued their positive trend in Mar'16, where Large-scale manufacturing (LSM) grew by 4.1% YoY in 7MFY16. Private sector credit off-take increased by 9.8% YoY, likely benefitting from monetary easing in CY15. As per provisional data, tax collection in 9MFY16 was up 19.7% YoY at PkR2.1tn, and on track with the Government's target for FY16. FDI inflows for Feb'16 recorded at USD 103 million compared to USD 89.1 million in Feb'15, taking 8MFY16 FDI position to USD 751 million, reflecting an encouraging growth of 4.8%YoY. The current account posted a USD 157 million surplus in Feb'16 against a USD 590 million deficit in Jan'16 primarily benefiting from low oil prices and higher remittances. Pakistan's current account deficit (CAD) shrank by 23% YoY over 8MFY16 to USD 2.0 billion from USD 2.6 billion in the corresponding period of the previous year. The deficit is now 1.2% of GDP as opposed to 1.7% in 8M2015. The reduction in the deficit can largely be attributed to a 6% YoY growth in remittances and an 8% YoY decline in the import of goods and services. Outstanding advances worth PKR 3.15 trillion were extended to the private-sector in the 7 months of the current fiscal year - an increase of 10.0% YoY. Advances for machinery import saw the largest increase (up 79%), followed by fixed assets (up 25%) and securities shares and other financial instruments (up 22%). These are encouraging signs for policy makers who have through an expansive monetary and fiscal stance attempted to kick start GDP growth to 5.0%+. Fixed Income Review The SBP decided to maintain the discount and policy rate at 6.5% and 6.0% respectively in its latest monetary policy review. The decision was premised on an expected though moderate rebound in inflation and fears that excessive easing could be undone by an upswing in the commodity cycle which would also create pressure on the PKR. In the 3 T-Bill auctions held for the month, the SBP accepted bids worth PKR 488 billion against a target of PKR 450 billion and maturity of PKR 468 billion. The last auction of the month saw cut-off yields for 3M, 6M and 12M T-Bills decline to at 6.1697%, 6.1812% and 6.2079% respectively. Yields dropped by 4 bps in 3M and 6M tenor while 12M saw yields drop by 3bps and participation remained skewed towards 12M as compared to 3M and 6M tenors. In the PIB auction held in March, 3, 5, 10, and 20-year bonds were offered for sale where the cut-off yield settled at 6.3%, 7.0%, and 8.2% in the 3 year, 5 year and 10 years respectively while no bids were received in the 20 year tenor. Bids totaling PKR 219 billion were received for the 3, 5 and 10-year PIBs against the target of PKR 50 billion while the SBP accepted PKR 115 billion. Equities Markets Review March saw upward momentum continue, with the KSE-30 index up by 4.3% at 19,167 points. The index was driven by the heavyweight Oil and Gas sector (+14%) and Cement Sector (+11%). Overall recovery was the outcome of a) improved global equities outlook amid a dovish US Fed stance and commodity price uptick, b) the regulator and the exchange scrambling to address relatively lower liquidity/volumes in the market and c) progress on Pakistan's reclassification into the MSCI Emerging Markets Index also acted as a trigger. Volumes saw considerable improvement averaging 144.9mn shares in March vs. 136mn shares in February. Sector wise, Oil & Gas led the board, posting gains of 14% for the month followed by Pharma (+12% on drug price increase), Cements (+11% on robust dispatches growth), Food (+9% on news of EFOODS' potential acquisition) and Telecom (+9% on expected setting of floor on cellular service tariffs). On the other hand, Banks and Power declined by 2% and 2% respectively as compressed margins and foreign selling took its toll. Foreign investors remained net sellers during the month with outflows of USD 14.6 million, though lower than the USD 39.5 million recorded in February.

Consumer confidence surprised with an uptick to 96.2 in March from 94.0 in February. Market momentum remained bullish in March despite unemployment data deteriorated as a dovish FOMC/weaker US Dollar helped trigger a strong rebound in commodities, emerging markets and broader risk assets.

China's official manufacturing PMI rebounded to a nine-month high of 50.2 in March from 49.0 in February, much stronger than the market expectation of 49.4, reflecting a recovery in real activity as distortions due to the Lunar New Year holiday faded.
