    Asia's Worst-Performing Currency May Have Further to Fall: Mizuho

    The Thai baht, set to become the worst-performing currency in emerging Asia this quarter, doesn’t look like it’s going to bottom anytime soon, according to Mizuho Bank Ltd. Foreign funds have pulled a net $3.8 billion from the nation’s equity market since the end of March, the most since at least 1999 on a quarterly basis, amid concerns that an escalation in trade frictions between the U.S. and China will weigh on Thailand’s current-account surplus -- a source of attraction for the country’s currency bulls. The baht had been the second-best performer in emerging Asia in the first quarter, underscoring the spread of the rout in developing economies to countries with relatively strong fundamentals.

This has kept the dollar supported against a basket of six major currencies. With trade tensions between the world's two largest economies escalating, short bets on the yuan are at their highest since November 2016, the poll of 10 respondents showed.

    Mizuho Financial Group, Inc. -- Moody's: BNPP's stronger capitalization mitigates asset risk; Mizuho has stronger liquidity

    Moody's Japan K.K. says that the stronger capitalization of BNP Paribas (BNPP, Aa3 stable, baa1) mitigates its greater level of asset risk when compared to Mizuho Financial Group, Inc. (A1 stable), while Mizuho outperforms in funding and liquidity. "BNPP has a greater exposure to trading risks and a much higher nonperforming loan (NPL) ratio, but this is mitigated by a well-diversified non-capital markets franchise and a thicker loan loss reserve and capital buffers than Mizuho," says Shunsaku Sato, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.

    Mizuho Says Sell Chipotle After Huge Rally - Enough is enough.After an 80% spike since Brian Niccol was named CEO in February, Chipotle shares were downgraded to sell by Mizuho.In a note to clients, the Wall Street firm said investors "should reduce their risk" because the stock price already reflects an "aggressive recovery" in sales and profit margins.Niccol recently outlined his turnaround plan for the burrito chain, but analysts called it short on details.Given that, Mizuho said there are no clear catalysts to "justify significant earnings upside." Mizuho, however, did acknowledge Niccol's "impressive track record" as CEO of Taco Bell, calling him the "best choice to lead Chipotle."Niccol replaced founder Steve Ells, who struggled to guide the company back from a series of food safety incidents dating back to 2015. The stock traded as high as $750 a share back then.
