The eye-popping prediction that the proportion of government debt to gross domestic product would top 60 percent by 2024 sent the rand down as much as 2.3 percent, wiping out this year’s gains. “Moody’s should like this,” said Geoff Kendrick, a London-based strategist at Standard Chartered, which took profit on its position in the lira-versus-rand cross. The rand added 0.6 percent as of 5:28 p.m. in Johannesburg, among the top gainers in emerging markets, to 13.9589 per dollar, and the yield on government debt due 2026 declined five basis points to 8.82 percent.

Moody's Corp. said Friday it was raising its dividend by 14% and announced a $500 million accelerated stock repurchase (ASR) program, while reporting fourth-quarter profit and revenue that missed expectations. The stock was indicated down nearly 1% in premarket trade. The credit ratings company said net income rose to $250.3 million, or $1.29 a share, from $25.5 million, or 13 cents a share, a year ago, which included tax reform-related charges, while adjusted earnings per share rose 8% to $1.63, but was below the FactSet consensus of $1.68. Revenue fell 9% to $1.06 billion, missing the FactSet consensus of $1.13 billion. Moody's said it was raising its quarterly dividend to 50 cents a share from 44 cents, with the new dividend payable March 18 to shareholders of record on Feb. 25. The $500 million ASR is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2019. Based on Thursday's stock closing price of $163.73, the new dividend rate implies a dividend yield of 1.22%, compared with the implied yield for the S&P 500 of 2.06%, and the company could repurchase up to 3.05 million shares, or about 1.6% of the shares outstanding, as part of the ASR. Moody's stock has run up 11% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has gained 0.6%.
