Fundamentals Return to Emerging Markets. This past quarter has been one of more twists and turns in macro factors than we can, perhaps, remember. Commodities went from being some of the worst performing and under-held assets in January to the complete opposite in February and March. The Federal Reserve has ”walked back” from its previous more hawkish interest rate projections and, as a result, the U.S. dollar declined dramatically. This has taken the pressure off some of the weaker emerging markets currencies, which have seen impressive rallies. It appears that many emerging markets investors have rushed to sell popular investments in India and China to return to more globally cyclical driven markets, companies that have benefited from the rebound in commodities, and higher beta currencies. This caused significant performance idiosyncrasies among countries in the emerging markets complex in the first quarter.

1Q 2016 EM Equity Strategy Review and Positioning

We believe long-term followers of our strategy will understand that panic followed by euphoria rarely provides a favorable backdrop for outperformance by our highly disciplined all-cap strategy, as both size and growth characteristics tend to be penalized in short periods of panic. Poor quality and cyclical factors, which our strategy generally avoids, tend to outperform everything in the first innings of euphoria. It is important to point out that the cause of our potential underperformance during these short periods is often due to what we do not own (i.e., what we deem to be very large, poor quality cyclical companies) as much as it is indicative of what we do own — you might think of it as partial giveback of our previous outperformance.

Financials and Consumer Staples Provide Boost; Industrials and Tech Detract

During the first quarter of 2016, stock selection in financials and consumer staples aided performance relative to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index1 benchmark, while selection in industrials and information technology detracted. The absence of allocations to the energy and materials sectors also hurt the strategy’s relative performance.

On a country level, China was the main detractor from performance followed by Russia and India. Peru, the Philippines, and Colombia gave the strategy’s relative performance a boost.

1Q Top Performers

The top five performing companies in the strategy came from around the globe. BB Seguridade Participacoes SA2, the insurance arm of Banco do Brasil, the largest Latin America-based bank, as a Brazilian real holding, was helped significantly by the rebound in the Brazilian market during the quarter. It’s a structural growth story. The company continues to display strong execution, in line with our growth thesis. In addition to its improving asset quality, consistent performance, and asset growth, Peruvian financial holding company Credicorp3 benefited from the turnaround in the Peruvian market. This followed the second half of 2015 when uncertainty as to whether the country would be reclassified by MSCI indexers weighed heavily on its stocks. Yes Bank4, a high-quality, private sector Indian bank, benefited from both improving loan growth and widening lending spreads. These have resulted in significant results, as has the bank’s focus on retail, as opposed to commercial, business opportunities. The stock price of Robinsons Retail Holdings5, the Philippines’ second largest multi-format retailer, made up most of its decline from the last quarter after full-year 2015 results came in largely in line with consensus, backing up our growth thesis. Although a global leader and structural growth story in its own right, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company6, the undisputed global leader in integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing, also benefitted from cyclical factors in the first quarter. There were earnings upgrades driven by greater short-term visibility and asset utilization from improved traction with key customers. Additionally, there was a multiple lift as investors also favored businesses that benefited from global cyclical tailwinds.

Chinese Stocks Suffer in 2016

Given that Chinese stocks suffered during the quarter, it is perhaps not surprising that four of the five biggest detractors from our strategy’s performance were Chinese. Following a slight change in its business model, Chinese company Boer Power Holdings7, which provides electrical distribution solutions, is facing, in our opinion, increased business risk. The company’s leverage increased as it took on higher levels of accounts receivable. We continue to believe, however, that the company will continue to be a beneficiary of the development of a smarter grid in China. Luxoft Holding8 is a high-end information technology services provider, primarily to the financial services industry, with its programmers largely situated in the ex-Soviet Union countries, which are referred to as Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). During the quarter, the company reported lower than expected numbers, largely related to the pulling of a key contract by a client. Chinese company Wasion Group Holdings9, like Boer Power Holdings, is in the business of improving the efficiency of power use, an area of activity we still believe displays convincing fundamentals. The company is setting the standard for ”smart” electrical grid meters in the country. During the quarter, however, it suffered from the fallout created by the adjustment and lengthening of payment timelines on certain government contracts. Along with a number of others, JD.com10, one of the Fund’s internet holdings, suffered from the widespread exit from the Chinese market during the quarter, giving back some of its outperformance of the previous year. However, the company continues to reflect, in our opinion, the considerable strength of the growth opportunities in the e-commerce sector in China. CAR Inc11 is the largest auto rental company in China and provides vehicles to U-Car, a partner providing ”Uber-like” chauffeured car services in China. The issues around this company, and its recent poor performance, center on uncertainty surrounding the regulatory environment that has led U-Car to scale back its investment, and thus use fewer CAR Inc vehicles. We are monitoring this situation closely.

We Don’t Respond to Short-Term Macro Events

As we always strive to emphasize, we are fundamentally a bottom-up strategy, first and foremost. However, we do like to give a sense of where the strategy is positioned in terms of country and sector. Please bear in mind that a higher weighting in a country may not necessarily mean extra exposure to that country’s risk, as certain holdings may be negatively correlated to the local currency or positively correlated to local rates.

Because we don’t respond to shorter-term macro events such as oil and Brazilian politics, our weightings do not tend to move as materially as those of many of our peers. We simply don’t speculate on short-term movements or cyclical factors — we invest in well-researched, long-term structural growth businesses at attractive valuations. We maintain that this process and philosophy have historically returned and, we hope, may continue to return, what we consider pleasing long-term performance. However, our long-term performance may be punctuated by short periods when the asset class underperforms for mostly technical reasons.

We continue to be overweight in China, India, and Brazil, while still significantly underweight in South Korea. Taiwan still has a relatively light weighting, although it is home to a couple of our larger positions. South Africa is still also underweight, but less so than in prior years, as weakness in the rand has encouraged us to make further investment in domestically-oriented companies, while outperformance of Naspers12 has also increased our weighting in the country.

Healthcare and Financials Offer Structural Growth Opportunities

By sector, we have maintained the persistent biases that you can expect from our philosophy of structural growth at a reasonable price. Energy and materials are very difficult places for us to find good, persistent growth, while much of the telecommunication and utility sectors are not showing us much growth at all. Consumer staples, a natural area to look for structural growth, has largely proven to be too expensive for our taste in the last few years, and this remains the case.

We remain overweight in healthcare, clearly a long run structural growth industry as consumers in emerging markets dedicate a higher percentage of their increasing disposable income to healthcare spending. Financials remain a large weighting for the strategy, but the investments we choose in this sector are very specific, usually by country, and focus on persistent structural trends such as microfinance, ”banking the unbanked” and specialty insurance.

Emerging Markets Outlook

Experience informs us that this kind of environment rarely persists for more than a quarter or two before rational fundamentals reassert themselves and investments in quality companies with genuinely sustainable operating profitability and attractive valuations reassert their leadership. In a more ”normal” environment, our strategy has historically tended to do quite well in our estimation.

Eyeing Brazil with Interest

We are watching Brazil with great interest. The political situation there remains extremely fluid. The incumbent socialist administration looks increasingly likely to be replaced by a more market friendly, reformist coalition. This expectation has resulted in a sharp recovery in current share prices and the country’s currency. We steadily increased positions throughout last year because valuations became more and more attractive and have been somewhat rewarded for this — only somewhat, because the rebound has been led, so far, by large-cap commodity names such as Petrobras and Vale14, which do not align with our structural growth at a reasonable price (SGARP) philosophy and process.

Lower But Better Growth in China

China began the year with very negative headlines centering on the likelihood of a sharp depreciation of its currency and fears of an imminent debt-fueled crisis. We, on the other hand, continue to expect lower but better growth, monetary and fiscal easing, and a gradually weakening renminbi, but no crisis. Our base case is for modest cyclical recovery in China’s economy in the first half of 2016 that could allow more room for further significant structural reforms, with more emphasis on the supply-side of the economy, rather than attempts simply to ”juice up” demand. We do believe, however, that more credit ”issues” are likely as the tidying up of highly indebted, state owned entities continues. As we regularly remind emerging markets investors, our strategy has very little exposure to the old, smokestack/state-owned enterprise (SOE) complex13, and we continue to favor long-term, structural growth opportunities in environmental services, internet, healthcare, tourism, and insurance.

Performance Led by Technicals in India

India was the other market where we experienced some negative performance over the quarter. Again, we would make the case that this was partly for technical reasons related to positioning. We remain optimistic about the Indian companies in which the strategy is currently invested, despite the country falling out of favor in relative terms.

Accelerating Growth in Peru

After several months facing a challenging scenario with lower commodity prices, the outlook for Peru started to improve. Growth in the country has been accelerating, driven by the mining and infrastructure sector. There is uncertainty regarding the outcome of the presidential election. It seems that the most likely scenario is that former-president Alberto Fujimori will win in the second round. Finally, there seems to be a consensus view that Peru has a big chance of avoiding MSCI reclassification to Frontier Market which could act as an additional driver to Peruvian equities.

Can Colombia Tough Out Low Oil Prices?

Colombia continues to be negatively affected by the low level of oil prices, the uncertain fiscal adjustment, and expectations for the peace process. In our view, the government needs to approve a fiscal reform in order to address some important topics that will allow the country to achieve its fiscal target amid lower prices and low level of reserves. The government is waiting for the completion of the peace process to have the necessary political capital to proceed with an honest fiscal reform (this will be decisive to preserve the sovereign rating). There will likely be some slowdown in activity in 2016 with GDP growth expectations of around 2.7% versus 3.1% in 2015. There are some factors such as the beginning of the 4G mobile technology infrastructure program and the positive reaction of some tradeable sectors to a higher exchange rate that should partially offset the tough scenario for the economy given currently low oil prices.

We Believe Structural Growth is Reliable and Sustainable

In general, we see valuations for our focus list companies, after the recent rally, as fair, without being materially cheap. As we noted at the end of 2015, we are now seeing, as expected, some better economic numbers out of China, which is a notable bright spot. In addition, we would also point out that the growth of our strategy has been structural in nature and, arguably, quite reliable; as such, we expect it to compound over the course of time, with little cyclical risk associated with the world and market volatility we live with today.

HANetf presenterar investeringscase för uran

Publicerad

Tom Bailey, chef för ETF Research på HANetf, presenterar investeringscase för urans ljusa framtid och han diskuterade Sprott Junior Uranium Miners UCITS (U8NJ) under Proactive One2One Investor Forum. HANetf, en white label ETF-emittent, samarbetar med tredje parter som Sprott Asset Management (TSX: SII) för att skapa, hantera och distribuera ETFer i Europa.

Tom Bailey, chef för ETF Research på HANetf, presenterar investeringscase för uran och han diskuterade Sprott Junior Uranium Miners UCITS (U8NJ) under Proactive One2One Investor Forum. HANetf, en white label ETF-emittent, samarbetar med tredje parter som Sprott Asset Management (TSX: SII) för att skapa, hantera och distribuera ETFer i Europa.

Bailey betonade den växande globala efterfrågan på el, särskilt i Asien, och sambandet mellan stigande BNP per capita och ökad energianvändning. Han betonade vikten av kärnkraft för att möta denna efterfrågan, med tanke på energisäkerhet och klimatförändringsutmaningar.

Kärnkraftens tillförlitlighet, låga driftsbränslekostnader och minimala koldioxidutsläpp gör den till en tilltalande källa för ren, säker energi. Med 22 länder som siktar på att tredubbla kärnkraftskapaciteten till 2050, förväntas efterfrågan på uran öka, vilket skapar ett utbudsunderskott.

Bailey noterade den nuvarande och framtida konstruktionen av kärnreaktorer över hela världen, särskilt i Kina, som sannolikt kommer att överträffa USA i kärnkraftskapacitet till 2030. Han hävdade att detta underskott på uranmarknaden signalerar en ny uran-tjurmarknad, där priserna har stigit avsevärt under det senaste året.

Presentationen avslutades med en översikt över HANetfs uranfokuserade ETFer, särskilt juniorversionen som fokuserar på små gruvbolag, vilket ger investerare exponering för den potentiella uran-supercykeln.

Försvarsutgifter och kärnkraft de mest populära teman under Q1 2024

Publicerad

den

HANetf, Europas första och enda oberoende UCITS ETF och ETC-plattform, och ledande leverantör av ETPer för digitala tillgångar, har funnit att försvarsutgifter och kärnkraft har framträtt som de mest populära ETF-teman hittills under 2024, baserat på fondflöden.

HANetf, Europas första och enda oberoende UCITS ETF och ETC-plattform, och ledande leverantör av ETPer för digitala tillgångar, har funnit att försvarsutgifter och kärnkraft har framträtt som de mest populära ETF-teman hittills under 2024, baserat på fondflöden.

Vid en anblick skulle det inte vara orimligt att anta att intresset för försvarsutgifter och kärnkraft är en tillfällighet. Men vi tror att dessa två teman inte får genomslag isolerat från varandra – utan snarare i tandem.

”Flight to Arms”

Medan alla investerare tidigare kommer att ha övervägt geopolitisk risk, har behovet varit mindre akut under de senaste decennierna. I slutet av det kalla kriget sågs en relativt godartad geopolitisk miljö, med en nedgång i både mellanstatliga och intrastatliga konflikter.

Men den perioden, fruktar många, närmar sig sitt slut. Tecken växte fram under det senaste decenniet, med Rysslands invasion av Krim som fungerade som Europas första riktiga ”test” – men Rysslands efterföljande fullskaliga invasion av Ukraina 2022 markerade den största attacken mot ett europeiskt land sedan andra världskriget.

Den konflikten visar inga tecken på att ta slut inom kort, och detsamma kan sägas om Israel-Hamas-konflikten, ansträngda relationer mellan USA och Kina och modiga aktörer i Mellanöstern – för att nämna några exempel.

Natomedlemmarna minskade till stor del sina militära utgifter efter det kalla krigets slut. Medan de senaste geopolitiska händelserna har lett till en ökning av försvarsutgifterna, ligger många medlemmar fortfarande under målet på 2 % av BNP som alliansen skisserat på – en situation som alltmer betraktas som ohållbar.

Försvarsutgifter för utvalda europeiska NATO-medlemmar som % av BNP, 1990 – 2022

Källa: SIPRI. Endast i illustrativt syfte.

Det förväntas därför att om den nuvarande perioden av instabilitet fortsätter, eller faktiskt förvärras, kommer försvarsutgifterna bland NATO-medlemmarna att öka.

Som beskrivs i HANetfs senaste översyn av tematiska och digitala tillgångar kan investerare fundera på att få exponering mot aktier i försvarssektorn av just denna anledning – som en skydd mot geopolitisk risk.

Mot denna bakgrund har Future of Defense UCITS ETF (ticker: ASWC) samlat på sig över 300 miljoner USD tillgångar under förvaltning (AUM) sedan lanseringen i juli 2023, med 264 miljoner USD till fonden bara i år.

Nato strävar efter att ge exponering för NATO och NATO+ allierade försvars- och cyberförsvarsutgifter. ETFens index kräver att beståndsdelar har hemvist i NATO eller NATO+ medlemsländer, för att säkerställa exponering mot företag som ingår i den bredare NATO-alliansen och därför mer ansvarsfulla geopolitiska aktörer.

Kärnrenässansen fortsätter

De ovan nämnda geopolitiska chockerna har inte bara belyst försvarsaktier, utan också uppmärksammat vikten av energisäkerhet – Rysslands invasion av Ukraina innebar stora energisanktioner, vilket tvingade länder som en gång var beroende av rysk olja och gas att söka alternativ.

Tillsammans med det akuta behovet av att nå målen med nettonoll har det funnits en utbredd önskan om ren och säker energi – och kärnkraft är en tilltalande lösning.

Med tanke på att den har mindre CO2-utsläpp per gigawatt-timme (GWh) än sol- och vindenergi, och ses som mycket pålitlig, har kärnkraften fått något av en renässans. Länder som Japan, som tidigare avfärdade kärnkraft efter Fukushima-incidenten 2014, ändrar sin hållning. Sedan 2015 har Japan startat om 12 kärnreaktorer och det förväntas att fler kommer att följa efter.

Åsikter om huruvida ”avancerad kärnteknik” ska vara en del av lösningen på energiutmaningar

Källa: The World Wants New Nuclear. Endast i illustrativt syfte.

Men med 61 anläggningar som byggs runt om i världen, och ytterligare 113 planerade, har den förutsedda obalansen mellan utbud och efterfrågan på uran blivit ett problem. – Urangruvarbetare kommer att förväntas öka.

World Nuclear Association har förutspått efterfrågan på uran till 175,5 m/lbs 2024, och även om utbudssiffrorna för 2023 ännu inte är tillgängliga vet vi 2022 att 130 miljoner/lbs uran producerades. Det är klart att om produktionen inte ökar kommer efterfrågan inte att mötas.

Sprott Uranium Miners UCITS ETF (ticker: U3O8) nådde en rekordnivå på 330 miljoner USD i år och har haft över 35 miljoner USD nettoinflöden hittills (YTD). U3O8, som lanserades i samarbete med Sprott Asset Management 2022, är Europas största uranfokuserade ETF baserad på AUM.

U3O8 ger exponering för tillväxten av kärnkraft genom urangruveföretag. Vid sidan av aktier i uranbrytning investerar ETF i uran via fysiska truster, med en nuvarande vikt på cirka 18 procent. U3O8 har också en USA-noterad syster-ETF med över 1,6 miljarder USD AUM och en fysisk uranfond med över 5,7 miljarder USD.

Tillsammans med U3O8 tillkännagav HANetf i februari lanseringen av Sprott Junior Uranium Miners UCITS ETF (ticker: U8NJ), som fokuserar på små och medelstora urangruvarbetare som erbjuder potential att överträffa inom en snar framtid.

Med priset på uran nyligen över 100 dollar, är det potentiellt ekonomiskt för många av de mer yngre urangruvarbetarna att starta produktionen.

Samtidigt meddelade Kazatomprom att dess produktion 2024 kommer att vara 14 procent lägre än vad som ursprungligen förväntades. Så efterfrågan på uran ökar och stora producenter kämpar för att nå produktionsmålen – juniora gruvarbetare kan ha goda förutsättningar att täppa till gapet.

Sprott Junior Uranium Miners UCITS ETF har också en USA-noterad motsvarighet, med över 360 miljoner dollar AUM.
