China Market Strategy - 2H21 Outlook: Beyond normalisation and regulation

The strong economic rebound since 2H20 continued its momentum in 1H21, but in a divergent fashion. We expect continued recovery in 2H21, but slower given the higher base. As economic normalisation nears an end, we see early signs of less aggressive tightening or even moderate easing but no U turn in policy. Regulatory changes would definitely promote competition, leading to more innovation in the long run, despite generating short-term uncertainty, in our view. We expect China's equity market to remain resilient on the back of recovering economy, lower tightening and more reasonable valuation, despite uncertainty in variant development, regulations, and geopolitical tension.

Asia Technology Strategy - 2H21 performance should catch up with strong fundamentals

Most key tech end products' demand is tracking better than year-start expectations, with consumer notebooks tracking substantially better, servers and TVs tracking slightly better and smartphones broadly in line. Automotive tech demand is further adding to the strength. AxJ tech earnings are forecast to grow at a 23% CAGR over 2020-23 (30% CAGR over the next two years). In addition, earnings estimates have been seeing sustained EPS revisions throughout this year. We expect the long-held relationship between EPS revisions and stock performance will reassert itself in 2021 again. We retain our positive view on semis with still-solid demand drivers and supply also capped through 2H21.

CIO View: Hong Kong readies to make tech world its oyster

The introduction of the Hang Seng TECH Index (HSTI) is an important statement of intent that dovetails with both our thoughts on key issues and on our investment preferences – both in terms of geography and sector. While we remain neutral on equities overall, we have continued to advocate being selective about key exposures. The HSTI is certainly worth considering on multiple fronts.

CIO View: Lightening tightening

We assess the prospects for the Asian high yield space in the context of its sharp re-bound. The segment remains attractive, but also plagued by significant uncertainty and risks. Our base case points to investors enjoying a total return of around 8% over the next 12 months, which warrants our neutral stance on this asset class. Nevertheless, we remain mindful of developments in a key risk area – US-China tensions.

CQi Materials - 3Q outlook weaker but remains positive

None of the CQi-tracked materials panels saw their YoY demand indices go up in June. For July, the panels expect their YoY demand indices to remain at June's level. In 2Q, the demand growth on most material panels was far below their expectations. The panels expect their 3Q growth to continue softening but stay positive YoY.

CQi surveys reveal modest price corrections recently in each core segment of the solar supply chain. The price adjustments come in the wake of continuous price hikes in the past five months have softened domestic and overseas new order growth on the CQi panel in June.

Rethinking Retirement

Increasing life expectancies and falling fertility rates have led to aging populations becoming a reality in many countries across the globe. Population projections suggest that, by 2032, the total number of people aged 65+ in China will surpass the number of people between 10 and 25 years of age. 

Changing demographic profiles are putting pressure on existing pension systems around the world. For example, in 2050, China would have faced public pension spending of an estimated 10% of GDP, more than doubling from 4% in 2015-16. 

In an in-depth study, the Credit Suisse Research Institute (CSRI) is calling for an urgent rethink on retirement provisions in the face of aging societies.

HOLT® China Online Healthcare Insights: Opportunities behind the high market-implied expectations

With the accelerating digitalization trend, China online healthcare companies are priced with a larger gap between market-implied CFROI® and near-term CFROI forecasts than the overall healthcare sector. However, this expectation gap is comparable to listed peers in the US market and consistent with other high-growth sectors. We focus on three online healthcare companies in this note.
