L’inflation est l’ennemie des techs

Le programme inflationniste du nouveau président américain Donald Trump accentue l’impact négatif du retour mécanique de l’inflation sur les valeurs growth comme la technologie. Ce secteur reste d’ailleurs l’un des rares sanctionné à Wall Street après l’élection présidentielle américaine. L’indice Dow Jones atteint des nouveaux record, mais Amazon, Alphabet (Google), Apple, Facebook et Microsoft ont tous perdu 2% à 4%. A l’exception notable de l’investisseur Peter Thiel, la Silicon Valley était toute acquise à Hillary Clinton (la Californie ayant toujours voté démocrate).

The Cap on the Oil Price (W. Snyder)

Some time ago this Newsletter predicted an oil price of US $50 per barrel in the short term (see Newsletter 92 of 22.01.2015) and possibly prices later ranging from $60 to $65. American shale oil producers can now make profits at $50 to $55 a barrel in the Eagle Ford Basin and a bit more in the Bakken fields while those in the Permian Basin can do well at $30 a barrel. The prediction of an oil price at about $50 has thus proven to be quite accurate so far. Regarding the future for oil prices, a cap of $60 to $65 seems to be fairly safe as a prediction. The Americans will increase production as soon as the price reaches $55 a barrel or even before that.

Ascent autumn 2016 is now out! (by Degroof Petercam)

Nowadays, most investors acknowledge that listed real estate has deserved its status as a separate asset class or at least that it has a right of existence in a diversified portfolio. Index providers as well, recognize the specific nature of this asset class. Only recently, the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) introduced real estate as a separate sector based on its growing importance in the world’s equity market and its role as a foundational building block of a modern portfolio, rather than an alternative.

Samsung to buy car tech company Harman for $8 billion

Samsung Electronics announced an $8 billion deal on Monday to buy Harman International Industries, in an all-cash deal that makes Samsung a major player in the world of automotive technology. The electronics giant previously shunned big acquisitions, and the latest deal underscores a strategic shift as the company tries to break into the high-barrier automotive industry where it has little track record. As part of the deal, which is subject to approval by Harman shareholders, Harman will remain an independent subsidiary of the technology giant. Samsung will pay $112 a share in cash for Harman, which generated roughly $700 million in net profit on $7 billion of revenue last year.

Gold at the Dawn of a new Presidential Cycle

The price of gold was expected to benefit from the surprise Trump win, and it did immediately after, with a jump towards the September high near 1340 dollars per ounce. The rally lasted just three hours, then the course reversed and the former downtrend resumed with a sharp fall below the 1250 mark. Why, then, the sentiment that had pushed higher what is considered as a safe haven, turned to bearish so fast? The projected investments in infrastructure promised by Trump, sparked purchases of industrial metals, bonds yield went up, and so the dollar, not a friendly environment for gold.
