European High Yield: a tale of low defaults and diversification

Recent years have seen strong growth trends in the European corporate debt markets. This has provided a solid base for EHY to grow, becoming increasingly diversified with improved overall credit quality. Rather unsurprisingly, it is more appealing to investors as a result. With two full credit cycles since the late 1990’s behind it, the EHY sector is now an integral part of the global leveraged finance market. It may still be perceived as the smaller sibling of US High Yield, but that masks how fast it is growing and maturing.

Duo diamond jewels sold at Sotheby's auction for $57 mln

Sotheby's sold a pair of pear-shaped diamond earrings at a hammer price of about $51 million Tuesday, though the 14.54-carat flawless Fancy Vivid Blue diamond that was the auction's highlight fell short of the expected range. Apollo sold for $42.1m while Artemis went for $15.3m. But the earrings sold some way below their estimated prices of $70m. The 16-carat "Artemis Pink" is near identical in shape. It is also one of the world's most "chemically pure" diamonds, according to the Gemological Institute of America, which experts say gives the stone such a high degree of transparency.

Too early to take profit, yet

The political risk is now behind us in France, it is time to go back to fundamentals. While underlying conditions in the global economy are strengthening, some data may disappoint and trigger a countertrend setback in markets. The economic surprise index has recently weakened (mostly in the US and the UK), the Chinese economy could slowdown later this year and Trump’s promises are being pushed back or diluted. As the equity market is now up 10%, is it time to take profit? The slack in the global inflation figures could persist over the next few weeks, but this should be a temporary move. Indeed, the cyclical macro backdrop remains supportive for equity prices and negative for bonds. Eurozone inflation accelerated to 1.9% YoY in April from 1.5% in March.

Switzerland: 7% try to climb every day poverty line

The number of people living in relative poverty in Switzerland is on the increase, but it is still below the European average, according to the latest report on living conditions in the alpine country. The survey for 2015, released on Monday by the Swiss statistics office (BFS), revealed that 570,000, seven out of 100 people, were living in poverty.   The BFS defines poverty as being unable to pay for the “goods and services necessary for a socially integrated life” which in 2015 applied to those with a monthly income below 2,239 francs for a single person or 3,984 for two adults and two children.    Groups with higher than average rates of poverty included people living alone, one-parent families, those without further education and people living in a home where no one works, the BFS said in a statement.
