  • Hong Kong's Weak Dollar Is a Victim of Surging China Stocks

    Hong Kong's Weak Dollar Is a Victim of Surging China Stocks

    Equity investors are selling the currency for the Chinese yuan and buying mainland shares through the stock trading connects, according to Ronald Man, a strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Net northbound fund flows climbed to around 130 billion yuan ($19.4 billion) this year as of Monday, with sentiment helped by Beijing’s looser monetary policy and an easing of trade tensions with the U.S. The market could be further supported by foreign inflows, as MSCI Inc. expands the weighting of mainland-listed shares in benchmark indexes tracked by global investors. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority spent nearly $1 billion defending the exchange-rate peg this month, as the Hong Kong dollar’s wide interest-rate discount to the greenback makes shorting the city’s currency lucrative.

    Value Quest Among Pricey Saudi Stocks Leads Some to Mouwasat

    Mouwasat Medical Services Co., a health-care provider with a market value of about 7.6 billion riyals ($2 billion), is seen as an attractively valued and fundamentally interesting bet by firms ranging from Morgan Stanley to EFG Hermes Holding. As stock gauges compiled by FTSE Russell and MSCI Inc. start including Saudi assets this year, several analysts see Mouwasat as among few companies listed in Riyadh that are more enticingly priced than global peers. Using the same metric, Saudi Arabia’s Tadawul All Share Index has been more expensive than emerging-market benchmarks since November 2017.

    China has barred foreigners from buying more shares in a Shenzhen-listed laser specialist, after global investors got close to breaching the country’s 30% cap on international ownership for any single stock. The halt comes days after MSCI Inc., the index compiler, moved to add more companies listed in Shanghai and Shenzhen to its influential benchmarks, giving shares from these two markets more weight in those gauges. Many nations limit foreign holdings in select industries, but broad restrictions are much rarer, though MSCI research shows they apply in several markets in the Middle East and in Southeast Asia.
