"Equities in London appear set to weaken during opening trade, with the FTSE-100 seen falling around 20 points. The trend is being set by US overnight markets, where all principal equity indices closed in the negative on the back of a number of generally unexciting earnings reports coming primarily from consumer-discretionary shares along with caution ahead of Apple’s important quarterly release. With markets watchers sensing the Fed’s willingness to shortly kick off an extended phase of rate hikes, blue chip earnings momentum must be seen to either match this or see heady valuation multiples pushed lower. Post close, the mood darkened somewhat further as Apple’s confirmed its third consecutive decline in revenue and profits, as the Company searches for a way to offset the global slowdown of its flagship iPhone. While Apple’s CEO pointed to improvements in the services businesses along with the strong reception to the latest iPhone release which appeared after the quarterly period close, the results nevertheless marked its first decline annual sales since 2001. As a result, technology stocks will likely remain under pressure, with NASDAQ futures already suggesting a weaker opening this afternoon. Asia tracked the US markets throughout this morning’s trade with all regional markets closing in the red, with the ASX being the principal casualty as economic data boosted the A$ resulting in quite sharp hits on commodity stocks and financials. Traders in London will likely reflect on the Governor of the Bank of England’s Parliamentary Testimony from yesterday, in which he assured financial markets they have no reason to expect a change in the Central Bank’s inflation-fighting mandate, while contrasting with the Mario Draghi’s defence of the ECB’s continuing easy-money policies. Today, the UK is due to release BBA banking statistics, while also awaiting results from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.L) and a trading update from Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY.L). Markets will also remain sensitive to further news coming from Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon’s office regarding the proposed UK deployment of tank and drones alongside 800 troops in Eastern Europe, as the first of several expected NATO initiatives to help counter fears about Russian movements on the borders.

The consensus is expecting sector revenues and earnings to bounce back in 2017, a position that reminds us of President Bush's “Mission Accomplished” speech. Chinese data may well be opaque, but if it is correct then there are two significant trends: 1. China's gross capital formation is falling sharply and needs to decline another 25% from 2015 levels to fall in line with world average; 2. China is successfully reducing energy/metal intensity of its economy with consumption and tertiary industries (aerospace, medical, optics, renewables, comms) generating bulk of the growth. This shift in China's GDP mix has already caused havoc in commodity, currency and credit markets. As the rebalancing continues, we believe it will remain difficult to forecast EPS for UK engineering stocks still heavily exposed to the energy/commodity complex. Attention will shift to balance sheets. Smiths Group and Morgan Advanced Materials are particularly vulnerable to rising refinancing costs. Weir may have to cut dividend to remain within covenants. Bodycote and Vesuvius, which we move to a BUY, seem most likely to pay an unchanged dividend over the next three years without relying on capital markets. Only GKN and Hill & Smith, which we move to a BUY, can be confidently expected to grow EPS and the dividend over the next three years and maintain a strong balance sheet.
