Sri Lanka can cut rates once inflation expectations stable-c.bank chief
Tue Jan 27, 2015 4:59am EST

COLOMBO, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Sri Lanka can reduce its policy interest rates below their current record low levels once inflationary expectations subside and become stable, new Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran said on Tuesday.

"Inflation expectations are still embedded in people's minds," Mahendran told Reuters in an interview after the central bank announced its January policy decision. "We have to keep rates stable for a while until those inflationary expectations come down to a stable level and then we can cut interest rates further."

The central bank left policy rates steady on Tuesday for a 12th straight month, as expected. Speaking after his first monetary policy meeting, Mahendran said inflation was expected to ease further with the economy expected "to record a robust performance", predicting growth of 7.5 percent this year.

Both Demand pull inflation and cost push inflation can be witnessed in coming months. Hope that the the new CB Governor can recompose the product basket of the CPI to more realistic one within 100 days in order ascertain the real purchasing power of a Sri Lanka.

It is very simple to analyse.
 
Lower oil prices will send down energy prices of all types of manufacturing companies including plantation companies
Lower grain prices, lower oil prices and lower electricity bill will send down cost of production of grain elevators and other poultry companies
Lower rubber prices will benefit rubber manufacturing companies
Lower copper prices will benefit some production companies
Companies can expand their businesses thanks to lower interest rates and borrowing cost will come down
Lower inflation will increase consumer purchasing power. They will create more demand for products and services.
 
On top of that, there is good demand for some product and services. Some companies will make strong earnings in the coming quarters due to demand factor and cost factor. In addition keep an eye on some out of favour industries and companies. They will comeback strongly.
 
It is time to identify top winners in the market before they become more expensive in the remaining stages of current bull market. Frontier markets are more attractive than other markets now.

Lot of stocks will go up in the coming stages of current bull market. It is not necessary to do panic buying and panic selling. I buy simple business I can understand now. Then we can minimize losses. Otherwise we can lose million in stock markets. Stock market is the place where we make both profits and losses. It is normal.
 
There are two types of stocks in my basket
 
Strong stocks
Out of favour stocks
 
and continuously searching for new ones (two out of favour companies under my radar are: UDPL and ELPL)
 
In addition, I am thinking why cannot change personality of VONE and SPEN?
 
Other option is pick better stock that we think in each group as follows.
 
Banking and Finance
Diversify
Poultry
Production
Plantation
 
Then later stage of current bull market it is wise to allocate more funds to some defensive sectors such as Food and beverages including hot beverages (tea) and health care etc.

Yes. We should take advantage of falling share prices as well specially from stocks of companies having strong outlook.
 
Grain, cotton and other raw materials prices are cheaper in emerging economies than before with depreciating of emerging market currencies, particularly the Brazilian real and Indian rupee. Sri-Lanka import lot of things from India.

Yes lot of things link to each other. Lower oil in 2016 means lower oil for other oils such as soya bean oil, corn oil, palm oil and canola oil etc.  Some alternative energy also will have tough time.
 
Production companies, airlines, ship and aircraft builders, car manufactures,  transportation companies, grain elevators, food processing companies, plantation companies having more factories and other equipments will benefit lot thanks to lower energy cost and other low raw materials prices. Even if rupee stay below Rs.140 and around Rs.148 still some commodity will become cheaper except item like cars due to falling currencies in emerging countries and falling commodity prices. According to some analysts oil can go to $ 20 level. Some companies will make use of falling prices to expand their business wisely.    
 
We are having a cycle and we have to face for it. It is time to look for some emerging commodities and emerging companies in the emerging sectors. Every situation, there are winners.

Sri Lanka FMCG, manufacturing firm earnings seen up


ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lankan fast moving consumer goods and manufacturing companies are expected to report higher earnings in the September quarter given low fuel and commodity prices and deflationary conditions that have improved buying power, brokers said.  

The effect of the price reductions on the economy were seen large as deflation was last reported two decades back, Sampath Securities said in an earnings note to clients.

“We expect the level of consumption to be increased over the quarter with the reduced price levels. As a result we expect companies with FMCG exposure to post notable results during the period.”

The island has been experiencing deflation in the three months to September after the new government reduced prices of essentials items in the food and non-food categories earlier this year. 

The brokers said sharply lower global commodity prices during the quarter should also help manufacturers by reducing costs. 

Oil prices declined by 24 percent to 46 US dollars a barrel in September from the end of June while copper prices dropped 12 percent due to weak demand from larger economies. 

Global cotton prices declined 12.3 percent during the quarter to 59.2 US cents a pound due to a supply glut while aluminum prices dropped five percent.

“Further, domestic fuel prices revised down earlier this year remained constant during the quarter and electricity tariffs revised down also remained unchanged,” Sampath Securities said. 

“Therefore, since the commodity prices and energy prices remained favourable during the quarter, we expect certain counters in the manufacturing sector to report bolstered results.”  (Colombo/October 13 2015
