(Bloomberg) -- Emerging-market investors seem to have everything going for them right now, with the November rally offering a hint of what 2021 may have in store.A plethora of tailwinds from accommodative central banks to an impending change of U.S. president and Covid-19 vaccine progress has put the assets of developing nations on course for some impressive milestones. Bonds have wiped out their year-to-date losses, while MSCI Inc.’s currency index is poised for the best month since January 2019 as well as a second successive annual gain. The MSCI stocks gauge is on track for its best month since March 2016.Underpinning the recovery is a resurgence in foreign-investor interest. Fourth-quarter portfolio inflows to emerging markets are poised to hit the highest in eight years, data from the Institute of International Finance show. Yet, for all the euphoria, foreign positioning in bonds and equities for developing nations excluding China remains light, and Deutsche Bank AG’s Sameer Goel, says the rally is far from over.“It’s Goldilocks for emerging markets’ under-invested assets as we go into 2021,” said Goel, the bank’s head of emerging markets macro research in Singapore. They “have considerable cyclical catch-up potential.”Deutsche Bank isn’t alone in seeing further gains. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. have made bullish calls on the asset class in recent weeks. UBS Group AG said last week emerging-market assets may benefit from the prospect of “near-complete normalization” in global economic mobility by the end of next year.Read More: Alternative Data Show Advanced Economies Sliding While EMs Keep GainsMobility is key to the recovery, which is why the possibility of a spike in Covid cases remains a risk as average temperatures drop in many of the developed economies and people socialize over end-of-year holidays. Moves by some central banks including those in Taiwan, South Korea and Thailand to become more assertive in stemming currency gains might also limit gains. The behavior of China’s central bank will also be watched for any signs of resistance to the yuan’s strength.Below are three reasons to be optimistic about the outlook for emerging currencies in 2021 and key events and data to watch out for in the coming week:Attractive ValuationExchange rates in developing economies are still modestly undervalued, with an average Z-score of minus 0.4 using a simple metric of the current REER versus the five-year average. Countries such as Brazil, Turkey, Russia, Hungary and Malaysia have even lower scores, with readings of minus 1.4 or below.History suggests that there’s scope for improvement. The average valuation Z-score hit positive 0.9 in April 2010 following the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. It also reached plus 0.7 in April 2013 following the implementation of the third round of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve. Conditions in both periods were similar to those prevailing this year, with historically low U.S. real rates and improving global manufacturing activity.Real Yield AdvantageAn abundance of caution from the Fed -- which under average inflation targeting, has pledged to allow inflation to run at above 2% -- implies that real yields will fall further.Read more: In Praise of Inflation, Or What Risk Assets Need: Macro ViewWith the stock of the world’s negative-yielding debt exceeding $17 trillion, the hunt for yield favors emerging markets. Juxtaposed against already low U.S. real yields, the 10-year real yields of developing economies -- based on Bloomberg consensus economists’ forecasts –- enjoy a Z-score of positive 0.8 versus the three-year average. The highest scores are for China and South Africa, which both have plus 2.0 readings.Investor DemandTrailing 12-month foreign flows into emerging-market bonds have an average Z-score of negative 0.7 versus the five-year average. For equities, the figure stands at negative 1.3. Considering the light positioning in the debt universe, Indonesia’s rupiah and the Mexican peso are well placed to benefit, while currencies of South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia and Turkey stand to win based on data for stocks.To see the Z-Scores tabulated for all emerging markets, click here.Listen to the EM Weekly Podcast: China PMI, Unexpected Liquidity; InflationIndia DecidesThe Reserve Bank of India is expected to leave its key rate unchanged on Friday as inflation has been running above target for seven consecutive monthsThe RBI may also raise its near-term inflation forecast given the upside surprise since its October review, according to Bloomberg EconomicsGovernor Shaktikanta Das also said last week that the economic recovery had been more rapid than expected, and accordingly, the RBI is expected to raise its GDP forecast for fiscal 2021The RBI has cut interest rates by “a great deal” and more policy space can be created when inflation eases, its executive director and interest rate-panel member Mridul Saggar saidREAD: India Enters Recession as Virus Pummels No. 3 Asian Economy The rupee closed 0.2% weaker last Friday after data showed India entered an unprecedented recessionThe Bank of Thailand’s minutes on Wednesday may contain more information about plans for halting the appreciation of the bahtThe Thai currency was the the third-worst performing currency in emerging Asia after the yuan and the Taiwan dollar last week as the chorus of pressure aimed at the central bank to slow appreciation continuedChina PMI, Korea RestrictionsChina’s manufacturing purchasing managers’ index rose to 52.1 in November from 51.4 in the previous month, according to official data released Monday.

Higher natural gas futures prices for 2021 and a continued glut of crude oil are prodding U.S. shale firms to boost gas drilling and production. Shale producers are increasing spending on natural gas, a change from the past, amid forecasts for a 45% jump in gas prices next year compared to a 15% gain for Brent prices. The largest U.S. shale oil producer, EOG Resources, this month said next year it will start selling gas from 15 new wells from a newly discovered field holding 21 trillion cubic feet of gas.
Dealmaking in private equity faces a big question mark at year-end. In recent weeks, a wave of industry professionals have predicted that PE firms would try to execute a rush of last-minute deals over the final weeks of 2020 to lock in gains before possible increases to the corporate tax rate and closure of the carried interest loophole under President-elect Joe Biden. After all, it has happened before. When President Barack Obama proposed ending the carried interest loophole early in his first term, private equity deal count rose 34% in the fourth quarter of 2010, according to PitchBook data, which was the final quarter before the law could have gone into effect. Fortunately for private equity firms, the proposal never gained enough bipartisan support to pass, despite repeated attempts from the Obama administration. This year, however, the prospects for possible tax increases under a new Democratic administration are more complicated. Nearly a month after the election, it remains unclear whether Biden will have the benefit of passing tax legislation with a Democratic-controlled Senate, or whether Republicans will maintain control of the chamber. The answer will have to wait until Jan. 5, when two runoff elections for both of Georgia's seats will settle the Senate's last undecided races. US private equity exits That leaves private equity in a precarious spot. Biden's tax plan would raise the corporate rate from 21% to 28%, and the carried interest tax, which is typically treated as capital gains and taxed at around 20%, would instead be taxed as income. Increasing the corporate rate could limit companies' free cash flow, hindering the ability of firms to strike deals during Biden's presidency. The latter change would effectively double carried interest tax on high-earning private equity partners, since Biden's plan would raise income tax on individuals making more than $400,000 a year from 37% to 39.6%. But actually passing that tax plan is far from certain in a Senate that Republicans still lead 50-48. The Senate would only flip blue if Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock can prevail over incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, respectively. A 50-50 split means Democrats have the edge, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris serving as the tie-breaking vote. And any tax measures that pass may not even go into effect until toward the end of 2021. "I don't think it's likely," Wylie Fernyhough, a PitchBook analyst who covers private equity, said of a possible holiday deal rush. "It'll take the administration nine months to a year to get the new legislation in, and then it likely won't take effect until 2022, giving private equity firms all of next year (to make deals)." To be sure, the PE industry could still see an increase in dealmaking at year-end but that may say more about the pandemic than it does about politics. The arrival of vaccines in the coming months has renewed hopes for a return to normalcy. But there are also signs that the ending the COVID-19 chill on some deals is far from over. Infection case counts continue to rage across much of the world, creating even more uncertainty for companies and investors about the short-term financial picture. Moreover, lenders have been more aggressive in pushing for favorable terms for private equity-backed deals, according to Patrick Donegan, an executive at Performance Improvement Partners, which consults PE-backed companies on technology. As a result, receiving financing has become a challenge for even well-established investors. "In its simplest form, they're OK to now lend some money, but probably not as much as they were comfortable with in the past," Donegan said of banks. "And therefore, the equity sponsors have to write a little bit larger check to get deals done." With around $1.5 trillion in dry powder, private equity firms in the US have plenty of firepower. But many companies simply aren't for sale. Private equity exits are expected to hit a 10-year low in 2020, PitchBook analysts said in their Q3 2020 US PE Breakdown. That means more firms are opting to hold companies until there's more economic certainty. In other words, it may be a few more months before there's an opportunity for the long-rumored deal surge. "You may see wealthy families look to sell as their personal taxes go up, so PE could buy," said PitchBook's Fernyhough. "But PE won't be a forced seller." Featured image via Mark Makela/Getty Images
Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who was killed on Friday, led a life of such secrecy that even his age was under wraps but much about the clandestine nuclear weapons programme he is believed to have run has long been known. The U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it suspected Fakhrizadeh oversaw secret work to fit a warhead on a ballistic missile, test high explosives suitable for a nuclear weapon and process uranium. Iran insists it never had such a programme nor any ambition to make a bomb.
(Bloomberg) -- Justin Trudeau, already among the most enthusiastic champions of government spending, will deliver another dose of stimulus to shore up an economic recovery that’s starting to creak amid a second wave of Covid-19 in Canada.Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland is expected to announce billions of additional funding in a fiscal update Monday, with dozens of new measures that could include topping up existing benefits to families and business along with teeing up money for infrastructure, daycare and climate change.The new spending will solidify the Canadian government’s status as the most expansionist in the industrialized world, reflecting Trudeau’s all-in commitment to put the state at the center of the nation’s recovery from the pandemic.“I want you to know that we’re here for you -- for today, for tomorrow, for as long as we need to get through this. We have your back,” the prime minister told reporters outside his Ottawa residence Friday.Bank of Nova Scotia is forecasting a budget deficit in excess of C$400 billion ($308.1 billion) this year. That would represent 18% of gross domestic product, an exponential surge from just over 1% in 2019. No major economy will show a bigger fiscal swing in 2020, according to estimates from the International Monetary Fund.Big-Ticket PrioritiesPeople familiar with the document say the plan will primarily be couched around supporting the economy through the pandemic. But it will also lay groundwork for financing new programs the government says are crucial to Canada’s longer-term recovery.Much of Trudeau’s agenda, which he laid out at the start of a new parliamentary session in September, will be represented. The so-called Throne Speech prioritized childcare, pharmacare and climate-friendly initiatives such as building retrofits and electric-vehicle charging stations.Some measures will be fully funded, some partially, and others put off until later years, one official said, speaking on condition they not be identified. There will also be some aid for sectors hit hard by the pandemic, particularly tourism and hospitality. Freeland, who took the reins at finance in August after Bill Morneau resigned amid a public rift with Trudeau, will argue the surge in debt is affordable given historically low interest rates, the person said. She will also provide reassurances any new structural spending will be part of a sound budgetary framework, what the official described as “fiscal guardrails.”Economists will see the new stimulus as an added layer of insurance for a recovery that is becoming more tenuous amid a wave of fresh lockdowns. While the economy rebounded sharply over the summer, it’s beginning to stall again and could even shrink in the final two months of this year.Still, few are clamoring for a bigger fiscal boost. That’s in part because Trudeau has been dishing out money faster than many Canadian households and businesses are spending it.“With vaccines on the horizon, we’d be more concerned about overdoing the stimulus than underdoing it,” Colin Guldimann, an economist at Royal Bank of Canada, said in a report to investors Friday.Businesses, meanwhile, are concerned the government isn’t laser-focused on the recovery.“It can’t let its attention stray to nice-to-haves,” Perrin Beatty, chief executive of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, said in a telephone interview. “We need to be focused on things that will drive growth, the must-haves.”Election ReadinessThere is also a political imperative to produce a more detailed fiscal plan.Trudeau doesn’t hold a majority in the legislature and lifespans of minority governments tend to be short in Canada. Having had to sweeten the pot after the Throne Speech to win support from the left-leaning New Democratic Party, the Liberals might want a fully fleshed out -- and budgeted -- agenda ready to campaign on should an election be triggered.Voters, however, appear to approve of the government support. Almost 60% of respondents in a Nanos Research Group survey for Bloomberg News in October said they are at least somewhat comfortable with Trudeau’s pledge to do spend whatever is needed to support Canadians through the crisis.That’s limited any political push back. Of the three major opposition parties, which combined hold a majority, only the Conservatives are showing any misgivings about the debt. While they’ve dragged the Bank of Canada into the political melee, they’re wary of fighting Trudeau over pandemic spending given he would tar them as austerity hawks in the middle of a recession.“We’re willing to support that spending to help people,” Erin O’Toole, Conservative leader, told reporters on Sunday. “What we don’t support is Minister Freeland’s suggestion that she can continue to spend with no plan at all as long as interest rates are low.”Nor will the temporary surge in borrowing worry most debt watchers. The nation’s fiscal picture was solid before the crisis, reflecting nearly three decades of prudent budget making by both Liberal and Conservative governments. Though Fitch Ratings did downgrade Canada’s creditworthiness in July, the other major agencies are showing patience.Trudeau’s strategy received a vote of confidence this month when Moody’s Investors Service reaffirmed the nation’s Aaa credit rating, saying its economic strength and “policy effectiveness” will help the economy weather the shocks of Covid-19.At the same time, Moody’s made it clear its tolerance hinges on the government paring back spending once Canada emerges from the crisis.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
