China Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Sector: Structural growth for long-distance heavy-loading transportation

We expect the hydrogen-powered FCEV to be an essential supplement to battery electric vehicles (BEV) in cold winter regions and long-distance and heavy-loading transportation. We estimate China's FCEV sales to jump from 3k units in 2022 to 30k/80k units in 2025/2030 and China's hydrogen price to decline from ~Rmb60 per kg in 2022 to Rmb35/Rmb20 per kg in 2025/2030. As a result, hydrogen-powered heavy trucks’ fuel cost per 100km is estimated to decline from ~Rmb780 in 2022 to ~Rmb450 and ~Rmb280 in 2025 and 2030, respectively, below the diesel engine heavy trucks’~ Rmb340 in 2030.

Asia Pacific Strategy: Input costs pressures—identifying the weak links

Input cost inflation is inflicting significant damage on Asian earnings. We find that cost pressures are less serious than in Europe but bigger than in the US. The outlook for 1Q pressures is fairly flat, but 2Q should see renewed margin contraction. Commodity pricing, rather than wages, is the main problem. Margin trends beyond 2Q will in large part depend on commodity price moves. Our analysis finds that commodities importers in general and especially Japan and Philippines are sensitive to input cost inflation. Commodity exporters Indonesia, Australia and Malaysia appear resilient. Our existing positions already Overweight the three resilient markets, Underweight Japan and give a Market Weight to Philippines.

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.
