"Europe's opening is expected to be pushed and pulled in different directions as investors contemplate contrasting overnight news from some of the world's major markets. Weighing up higher equity closes across both the US and Asia, together with the hint from Saudi Arabia, the world's largest producer and OPEC's opinion leader, of reviving the concept of coordinating crude output with other countries to rebalance supply, London is expected to open modestly firmer with the FTSE-100 rising around 5 points in opening trade. Traders have, of course, heard this before and OPEC's recent inability to effectively control its own members leaves them sceptical that obvious global oversupply can be tamed any time soon. Nevertheless, the story was enough to tempt some to close out bear positions and boosted confidence in the US where energy and consumer stocks drove all three principal indices to concurrent new record closes for the first time since 1999. Asia found this optimism infectious, with similar modest gains across the board, despite China's National Bureau of Statistics releasing the latest in a long run of disappointing industrial output figures, this time showing July annual growth down to just 6.0% from 6.2% in June. While this figure was below consensus expectations, affected primarily by slowing in the hitherto booming housing market, others took heart that monthly production actually rose by 0.52% while also anticipating yet further measure from the PBOC to stimulate its flagging economy. Macroeconomic date due this morning includes UK Construction and German GDP data, while later this afternoon expect US Retail Sales numbers to be released. There are no important UK corporates due to provide earnings updates today, although markets will be keeping an eye out for any further updates regarding the apparent escalation of tensions in the Ukraine following Russia's decision to increase security measures in the annexed territory of Crimea." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

Old Mutual Emerging Markets (OMEM) figures were positive, but quite negatively impacted by FX movements. Gross sales rose by 17% to R215bn (£11bn, +7% yoy). In South Africa, gross sales surged by 21% to R162bn due to excellent asset management flows in OMIG (best NCCF performance in the past 12 years at R7.3bn), unit trust flows in Retail Affluent and two large deals in Corporate in H2 15. The Rest of Africa recorded a 32% increase in gross sales to R15bn and a 31% improvement in profits to R1.4bn. In Asia & Latin America, profits were up marginally due to lesser new business strain from bank channel sales and one-off realised investment gains in Asia, and lower profits in Latin America.

Management has also confirmed the information revealed by Sky News about an audacious break-up plan. The insurer is working on a plan to split itself into standalone companies comprising its stake in Nedbank, its wealth unit, its emerging markets operation and its institutional asset management business. Old Mutual said that separation is expected to be materially completed by the end of 2018.

Making Mobiles Better
17 Jan 17
Mobile phones are increasingly the key connection for the modern world. This means that the performance of mobile phones, and their networks, is going to become more critical for all the apps and businesses that rely on them. New technologies such as VR, AR, and AV will need better, more reliable connections to really move into the mainstream.

As the birthplace of Stephenson, Armstrong and Swan, the North East of England has a proud history of industrial and technological innovation. Despite local economic challenges, the region’s industrial heritage lives on through continuing success in high end engineering and technology. The recent takeovers of private equity backed SMD (subsea robotics) and Nomad Digital (wi-fi on the railways) are testament to this. The North East has also emerged as a leader in genetics and genomics with an enviable life sciences and healthcare infrastructure. Against this backdrop, we expect the region to continue to throw up attractive IPO candidates to build on the six new listings in the past three years. We expect 2017 to be far kinder to the existing portfolio of North East plcs than 2016 (a year to forget) with recent management changes one important theme for the new year. Our top picks are Hargreaves Services, Quantum Pharma and Zytronic (all N+1 Singer Corporate clients) and we are Buyers of Northgate and Grainger.
