Breakfast Today

A mixed bag of macro releases from the US yesterday left its three principal indices largely directionless. All closed with just fractional moves after Facebook shares seemingly became unnerved by the warning its advertising revenue growth is likely to slow this year. While Consumer and Healthcare stocks found good support, pressure was evident in the Steel, Telecom, and Real Estate, while the S&P energy sector put in the worst overall performance, falling by 1.9%, as the price of crude for June delivery is tumbled US$1.17 to US$46.65 a barrel. Of the various statistics, an unexpected drop in productivity in the first quarter along with a bigger than expected jump in unit labor costs rather disappointed, while the Commerce Department reported factory orders creeping up by only 0.2% in March, albeit after surging to a revised 1.2% in February. Such a confused picture means that market watchers will be carefully scrutinising April's key and closely followed Nonfarm Payrolls data which is due for release this afternoon, with consensus looking for 180,000 jobs in April after rising by 98,000 jobs in March; unemployment is expected to tick up to 4.6% from 4.5%. Having fallen back as this was contemplated along with the continuing slide in commodity prices, the US$ rose slightly in Asia following the House of Representatives vote to approve a bill to replace the Affordable Care Act. Republican leaders had expressed confidence the Bill had gained enough support to pass, but the final outcome was still remarkably close, which suggests Trump still cannot expect an easy ride going forward as he attempts to get other, even more contentious major campaign pledges through Congress. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note settled at 2.354% on this news, compared with 2.309% Wednesday, marking the highest yielding close since April 10. During this morning's Asian session, Japan's Nikkei remained on holiday, but other Asian bourses were led quite sharply down by the Shanghai Composite as China's crackdown on speculation and borrowing left investors fearing the affect this could have on underlying demand for base metals. The most actively-traded iron ore futures, for example, opened down 6.8% on the Dalian Commodity Exchange, adding to its 8% limit-down on Thursday, unnerving the Hang Seng and ASX in the process. The STOXX Europe 600, meanwhile put in a good performance yesterday, led by the CAC 40 which closed at a new weekly high ahead of Sunday's final election round with Macron seemingly home and dry given fairly consistent pollings of around 60% of the national vote. The UK is not due to release any new macro data today, while the EC is only expected to publish its Economic Growth Forecasts report. The US will provide its April Nonfarm Payrolls, Average Hourly Earnings, Labor Force Participation Rate and Unemployment, while a number of speeches are due, including from the Fed Chair, Janet Yellen, the FOMC's John Williams and the Fed's Charles Evans. UK corporates due to release earnings or trading updates include the Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG.L), International Consolidated Airlines (IAG.L), Smurfit Kappa (SKG.L), Smith & Nephew (SN..L) and BBA Aviation (BBA.L). Given the absence of any trend set by the US overnight, London is expected to reflect Far Eastern sentiment this morning with a cautious opening, albeit on modest volume; the FTSE-100 is seen down 15 to 20 points in early trade.
