"Take a deep breath and weigh up the consequences. At the time of writing, Trump appears poised to capture the ultimate protest vote in a most divisive race that has exposed the deep divides across the States by class, race and gender. Just about every significant domino fell his way with even the Senate looking like it has been captured, which now leaves investors to ponder the pace at which he will attempt to fulfil his multitude of campaign pledges. While US equities closed overnight on a nervous, but still upbeat tone with all principal indices rising, only the Asian markets remained open as the results actually trickled in. Plunging amid wild volatility, the Nikkei was seen almost in panic as the Yen/US$ spiked sharply, with the ASX and Hang Seng also falling significantly while the Shanghai Composite held up surprisingly well despite Trump’s anti-free-trade rhetoric being pointed very much at the emerging markets. Treasuries, normally the best place to park money during times of turmoil are lurching lower as investors price in a less predictable occupant of the White House, along with expectations that Janet Yellen, who he accused of being Democratic stooge, is now unlikely to be given a second term as expectation of a Feb December rate hike also dives to below 50% from a peak of 84% in October. Europe will rue the likely collapse of TTIP while environmental campaigners also foresee Trump abandoning Obama’s Clean Power Plan. With S&P futures slumping as much as 5%, markets in Europe are predicted to suffer similar losses with the FTSE-100 seen down over 200 points in this morning’s opening trade. Largely irrelevant against this background, the UK will today will release trade data while also awaiting OECD leading indicators, although a scheduled speech from the Fed’s Kashkari this afternoon could throw up some significant points. A large number of UK corporates, including Burberry (BRBY.L), esure (ESUR.L), Experian (EXPN.L), Flybe (FLYB.L), Sainsbury’s (SBRY.L), SSE (SSE.L) and Tullow Oil (TLW.L). Today markets worldwide, that had been comfortably positioned for a ‘business as normal’ Clinton victory, will be subject to quite rampant volatility as they try to reposition themselves and seek out international safe havens, including gold. For the brave, this will throw up some quite exceptional buying opportunities as traders seek out the likely sectorial winners which seem to include Financials, Defence and Healthcare.

European partnership to lead to added value

  • 26 Oct 16

Concepta is a small UK-based company that focuses on the development and commercialization of its medical diagnostic device MyLotus. The device, a consumer good, has been developed to improve the probability of conception for women with unexplained infertility (not pregnant after 12+ months trying). The development phase of the product has been completed and the company has already obtained commercialization approval in China. We expect first sales in China to be realized in 4Q16. The company will also file its product for approval to the UK regulatory agency for the marketing and commercialization of the product in the UK and in the EU as a whole. We expect regulatory approval before the UK leaves the EU. Concepta has one commercialization agreement with a distributor in China who focuses on marketing the device to both hospitals as well as to consumers directly through online sales. The company wants to expand and collaborate with other distributors in China in order to increase its reach. We believe the company will look for a partner for the commercialization of its product in the EU. Here, the device will be sold to consumers directly through online sales. We believe that the EU represents the most valuable market opportunity for Concepta. We think that the recently appointed and experienced CEO Mr. Henau will lead the company to break-even as soon as next year. In addition, we believe he will close a commercial partnership deal on the company’s device in the EU. This clearly is a very exciting time for Concepta. The company will soon commercialize its first set of products in China and later in the EU. Our main assumption, namely a commercialization partnership for Concepta’s device in the EU, justifies our estimated fair share price of 23.85p. This represents a premium of almost 20% on top of the current share price.

"European markets this morning look set to celebrate a better than expected performance by Hillary Clinton at last night’s televised debate. When being watched live by some 100m Americans, simply tripping up on one or two well-timed soundbites can be enough to threaten opportunity for any presidential hopeful. As it happened, Donald neither manages to rile his opponent nor land a killer blow; Hillary, on the other hand, perhaps came across as better prepared and more knowledgeable. In fact, the markets finally appear to have sensed that Trump is now unlikely to end up securing control of Congress, which a good number of his radical policy would undoubtedly need to squeeze through but, without which, his Presidency would likely end up something of a damp squib. The most obvious confirmation of this was seen last night in the foreign exchange markets as the Mexican Peso surged from its record low during the debate; London on the other hand is seen as the first equity markets to provide a genuinely considered reaction, on the back of which the FTSE-100 looks set to rise 40 plus points in early trading. Europe is likely to follow suit, despite ECB President, Mario Draghi, leaving quite a clear message to investors yesterday that monetary policy has its limitations and that he was now looking to other policy makers to play their part too - which all means further interest rate cuts are now increasingly unlikely. Closing before the debate began, all principal US equity markets ended quite sharply down as the widespread sell-off in banking shares that began in Europe, with German Chancellor Merkel pointedly ruling out any idea of a State bail-out of distressed Deutsche Bank, hit sentiment. Asia similarly ended mostly down, but rallied somewhat in late trading in response to the debate, with the Nikkei regaining its composure after suffering badly from Yen strength early in the session while the Hang Seng moved positive after a flat opening. Traders in London will this morning be awaiting a WTO Trade Report and the CBI’s Monthly Distributive Trades Survey while, later on this afternoon, the US releases Consumer Confidence data. UK corporates reporting earnings or trading updates include AG Barr (BAG.L), boohoo.com (BOO.L), Close Brothers (CBG.L), Panmure Gordon (PMR.L), Thomas Cook (TCG.L), United Utilities (UU..L) and Wolseley (WOS.L). Market traders will also be keen to hear more on media reports that Disney is the latest to have cited interest in making an offer for Twitter." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

"No surprise there then! The Fed left short-term rates unchanged and concluded that, despite the Committee remaining riven by lack of consensus, the case for a rate increase has further strengthened. Fed Funds betting is still for one single 25bp move to take place before the year end, most likely in December. As unlikely as it seems right now, some decisive spike enough to push inflation close to the 2% goal, or for the unemployment rate to test the 4% level, looks to be needed before the FOMC can again achieve clear majority. Nevertheless, the broader economic picture painted by the Fed remains reasonably upbeat, with officials continuing to project two more hikes in 2017, taking the rate to between 1% and 1.25%, followed by three in each of 2018 and 2019, whereupon the discount rate could be as high as 2.75%. Celebrating the news that there is still three or so months before the first of these is actually delivered, all principal US equities markets put in good performances on reasonable volume, with the NADAQ recording its eight record close of the year. Riding on their coattails Asian markets did likewise, with Hong Kong and South Korea's Kospi both closing up more than 1% while other regional indices followed not far behind, leaving only Japan, closed for its Autumn Equinox holiday, to miss out on the party. That said, the strengthening of the Yen that immediately followed the Fed's decision is likely to sap the Nikkei's enthusiasm when it re-opens tomorrow. Market watchers will have a lot of macro information to chew over in Europe today, with the UK Financial Policy Committee due to make a press statement and the release of the CBI's Industrial Trends Survey, while BoE Governor Mark Carney is due to make a speech in Berlin. Elsewhere, publication of the ECB's economic bulletin and Eurozone consumer confidence data is also due this morning. UK corporates due to release earnings include Armadale Capital (ACP.L), Cambridge Cognition (COG.L), Crimson Tide (TIDE.L) and Fishing Republic (FISH.L), along with an AGM statement from Micro Focus International (MCRO.L). Traders will also be keeping an eye on crude prices which made reasonable gains during Asian trading following yesterday's US inventory data release which confirmed the third consecutive week on drawdown. The FTSE-100 is seen rising over 30 points during this morning's opening trade." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst
