tv First Up With Angie Lau Bloomberg November 1, 2015 6:00pm-8:01pm EST
>> still slowing, this quarter's first indicator from chinhina ss a third straight monthly contraction on the factory floor. --gmatic part of ticks workingc politics, together to save a stumbling economy. and a losing hand again. welcome to first up, coming to live from bloomberg's asian headquarters in hong kong. happy monday to you.
let's go straight to some breaking news this morning out of south korea. the september current account balance came in like this, a surplus of 10.6 billion dollars. that is up from a surplus of a .5 billion dollars the previous month. a bit of improvement there, a wider surplus. we are going to see how markets react in an hours time. or breaking news. this time, cvs coming in with earnings for the third quarter. net income came in at one billion singapore dollars, $764 million. 8% better than what analysts were expressed -- were expecting. let's switch gears to china. the first economic indicator of the quarter is out and it is signaling further weakness in
the manufacturing sector. the initial pmi figures showed contraction for a third consecutive month. it's much more the same story again. >> it is. it's a weakening economy and we have deepening deflationary pressures. fairly weak global demand is feeding into what we are seeing at the factory floor. at october pmi coming in 49.8. as you can see, the third consecutive month of contraction. better than august, the same as september. you can look at this two ways. the third straight contraction below 50. 49.8 is a sign of stabilization from the previous month. it depends on how you want to look at it. of course, we need to get a couple more months and see if we can get back up above 50. most indications are that there is some stimulus in the pipeline. we have had interest rates cut since last september. we have had infrastructure measures to try to stimulate growth in the economy, so some
are expecting a little bit of a pickup in the fourth quarter. as we all know, the third quarter was down to 6.9 percent growth. interestingly, the chinese trying to move this manufacturing-based economy into more of a service-based economy. was outice pmi yesterday. it is still an expansion, but at the lowest point, 53 .1, the lowest since december of 2008. yvonne: so, the pace of growth definitely declining. does this mean that the measures of the central bank have not really taken effect in the economy yet? >> there may be stabilization in the larger companies, but the smaller companies are still hurting according to many economists.
a survey of small and medium-sized private enterprises is coming out. i don't think we have a bar chart for that. but the expectation is for something well below the expansion territory, deepening into contraction. september was 47.2. seven straight months of contraction. there is definitely weakness continuing in the smaller private enterprises. yvonne: we will get those numbers in about two and a half hours time. let's check on the markets in asia that are open. in australia, pretty much flat. the australian dollar is weakening this morning. 71 u.s. cents after steve mentioned that pmi data. the third contraction we have seen in the last three-month. let's go to new zealand to see how things are going right now. pretty much flat as well. zealandwave -- new dollar also weakened.

they spent per day during golden september, buto it was less than golden week last year on a daily intake basis. where are we right now? roughly, this is a chart all the way back to 2005, that was your peak. this is monthly revenue gain, by the way. we peaked at over $4.5 billion. we are right now just over $2.5 billion, roughly speaking. obviously doing a conversion they're based on the exchange rate right now. $20 billion.ly the silver lining is that the pace of declines is now under 30%. i think that shows you how bad things have been if that is the silver lining. about visitor arrivals. in october.kup
it would have been more were it not for the typhoon that slammed into southern china on october fourth. for that day, we saw a decline in visitor arrivals. it was an important barometer that analysts had flagged early on. arrivals shows you whether the pace of declines will persist. ,aily intake for golden week $914 million. roughly, outat is u.s.0 -- 114 million dollars. yvonne: what is the outlook? analysts still think the fourth quarter could be some concern. revenuethe source of here?
>> it has been a major source of revenue. it argued we depends on which can see no you look at. it is no longer the -- it arguably depends on which casino you look at. it is no longer the major revenue source. we are down 53% from the peak last year, roughly about $1.2 billion. if you do the math, it's less than half. bank came out and said macau is not out of the woods yet. we don't see vip is coming back to the tables, literally. here today, you put everything together, they think we are going to be down 35%. yvonne: thank you so much for that out of macau. let's check on some other headlines this morning for you.

had over the weekend, and of course, the rba is moving tomorrow, holding an interest rate decision. it is interesting with the rba, because the banks have gone out on their own and raised rates. the big for lenders have come through. we have seen a 3% increase in lending. the markets are not loving that number. they are down in early sessions. the biggest stock on the australian index is a little weaker as well. let's have a look at what we are expecting in the region today. this is the picture coming through from the u.s. on friday. we saw some weakness in the main indices. the china-u.s. index had a big gain, up 3%. we should expect good gains coming through from chinese stocks. on friday, the nikkei closed up

issue that when you invest in korea, you are investing in chaebols. if you look at the nine companies we picked to dive into to begin with, it's about $540 billion in market cap. if you compare that to the cosby 500, a broader index and korea, i 500, aut -- kosp broader index in korea, it's about half. yvonne: how do these companies perform operationally? is this family control good or bad for revenue growth probabilities? >> it's interesting. when you look through this, if you take these nine companies as examples, you have a 4.8% sales growth for 2016, as an example. asia is expected to grow something more than 6%. of a hurdle for

second-largest economy may not be over yet. official figures show the manufacturing sector contracted for the third month in a row. for more, we are joined i our china economist, john jew. economist-- our china . his growth going to be a concerned. this has always been considered a bright spot to offset manufacturing. see aare starting to slowdown. that has been in the data for a while now. this does include construction and utilities as well. continue to see export orders show decline. chinese exporters remain challenged until the end of the year? what is your forecast?
story is global growth that trade has been contracting. that is a trend not just for china, but for exporters around the world. yvonne: it is still a pretty mixed picture. we see copper prices rising. the equity markets are often percent this month. but then you see aluminum growing substantially. there is doubt on domestic demand. what kind of picture does this paint to you? signsyou are seeing some of relatively strong growth in the services sector. sales have been reasonably strong, but clearly trade and other things continue to trend down. on the whole, there is not enough demand. yvonne: we have seen fixed
interest rates since november. you say probably one more this year. why? john: i don't think the inflation picture would war further easing from the authorities. we think there will be another cut. also, i think they will cut more aggressively, 100 basis points this year, 200 basis points next year. that is our forecast. we think that makes sense. and done.ssibly one one highlight in the data was the pick up an activity when it comes to construction. is that going to be something and a buildup in momentum? john: it's too early to tell. we are seeing housing prices and sales pick up. few has been going on for a months now. but usually, there is a lag before that bleeds through to
construction or real estate investment. it will probably be the end of the year before we see that reflected in the data. yvonne: a lot of interesting things coming around from the powwow they wrapped up last week. the one child policy, this historic role. what are the applications of this? can we reverse the aging population? all, the agin population is a good thing because it means people are living longer. that needs to be stressed. i think people are worried about the dependency ratio, the number of people who are retired relative to the number of people who are working. i think that is a challenge not just for china, but for many countries and the rest of the world. i think part of the solution is morelow people to have children, but in the short run, that is not going to have a huge
impact. the longer-term challenge is to make sure people can feel .omfortable working for longer the aging population could live longer which means they could tap into their savings and help shift china to a consumption-based economy. do you agree with that? john: there are so many things that can affect savings rates and the aging population. would expect the savings rate, which is still very high and china, to gradually come down. yvonne: appreciate your insight. yahoo! japany could be one of the day's big market movers. our borders make their stock picks -- our reporters make their stock picks when first up returns. ♪

further weakness in the manufacturing sector. this figure shows contraction for a third consecutive month. i've been away for a couple of weeks, i come back, and it is the same story. i managed slowdown of the chinese economy. no panic yet, but they have had cut since last november. there is concern. .his is illustrated here three straight months of construction. manufactures have in struggling because of the decreasing inflationary pressures. look at this. 49.8. some economists say following that growth in the third quarter
will create a pickup. they want to reach that target. interestingly, because of this switch over from the manufacturing base model to a we had-based economy, this out yesterday, and it was the weakest since 2008. 58.1. the weakest in six or seven years. pmi is more than services. it is banking, it is construction. is that the construction new orders jumped 5.9% last month. export orders, that is the concern. is declining, again. these construction activities could be a sign of something.
sincerate cuts, six november. are we not seeing them triple into the economy -- trickle into the economy? the smaller enterprises are still struggling. this is illustrated by the .pcoming pmi results this is a private survey, a smaller sector of factors. do we have that? there is. look at that. 47.6.h nine of the last 10 months, it has been in contraction. thatan rightfully say are in smaller factors contraction. there is a rising probability of
a further basis point reduction in the lending rates and more cuts to the rrr. all of this is in the markets this morning. let's go to juliet. juliet: not the brightest trading week. there are concerns about the continuing slowdown. not a great showing from wall street, either. 1.5%, japan is weighing on the index. is in the red. that was the slowest growth in six years. new zealand is pretty flat. on theseeing a pickup --

what is going on. paul: that's the way with australian stocks. america tends to expect great things. anything less than stunning results get a shrug. last week, as we saw with the other banks, the at headliners -- of the headliners at terrific growth. -- last week, as we saw with the other banks, the headliners had a terrific growth but, this is the slowest growth since 2009. rises 2012. first the other thing you have to remember when checking the stock price in this context is a lot of this is for shadowed ahead of -- foreshadowed ahead of today's announcement. shareholders will still get a dividend.
yvonne: we are talking out to the reserve bank. opinion has been split over whether we might see a cut. paul: it is very much a wide meeting tomorrow. stephen king thinks the rba will hold at 2%. hsbc.ncludes ubs and a swap starter there. there might be a cut. it will be a very interesting meeting of the rba. as the months where on, the economists think a cap is likely. by the time february will surround, economists think we will be down 1.75%. growth is sluggish after the end of the mining infrastructure boom. thanks are raising mortgage
rates which is tightening consumer spending. inflation, as we have seen, is very benign. there is still scope for the rba to cut if they would like to. dollar --ustralian weak australian dollar is certainly doing a lot of work. denied japan has stifling debate after its worst policy meeting in years. discussione briefest since october 2003. even so, the chairman says they had 20 a time. boj pushback its target date for inflation. >> the fall in energy prices is the biggest factor for us. slower growth in this fiscal year, due to the command of the u.s. and emerging markets, was another reason. the prices continue to be on a rising trend.
