Hi all,

The market is poised for A STRONG BULL PHASE primarily because of HIGHLY DISCOUNTED PRICES in terms of valuations are NOW SUPPORTED WITH IMPROVING MACRO ECONOMY as a result of IMF AGREEMENT announced on 26.05.2022 expect to recover the economy. The following are the KEY REASONS 

High level of ECONOMIC SUPPORT and ASSISTANCE by G7 countries [Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the United States] with INDIA

IMF during the mission completed during May 9-24 on the economic program in which they agreed to support with lending arrangement

With IMF agreement, CSE can expect FOREIGN BUYING triggered by improved country rating by agencies

Inconsistancy in energy Supply and Power Cuts TO EASE with RAIN & IMF agreement

The overall LOW MARKET PE stands around 6x which is a 50%< discount from historical high levels in last January 2022 [Market PE was 14x]

Negative INTEREST RATE in T Bills [Official inflation by CBSL 34% - T Bill rate 24% = -10% | As per Steve Hanke Inflation 131% - T Bill rate 24% = -107% ] 

Stock market is the ONLY INVESTMENT to BEAT NEGATIVE INTEREST RATE  to date. The recent market recovery is more than 240% p.a. from ASI low of 6900 to 8300

Inflated earnings giving high DIVIDENDS and some stocks DY is above 10%

Therefore, it is likely that positive sentiment would enble bull pressure on FUNDAMENTALLY STRONG STOCKS. Specifically selected counters may be on high interest [USD EARNING COMPANIES having overseas exposure] since there is a chance that high taxes may come up on LOCAL COMPANIES. 

Good Luck

First of all, Hope everyone is having a good day!
Please revisit your reasons for having a bull market soon, Negative interest rates? Policy rates were increased recently so did the TB & TBond rates-- last I saw it was 23% from mid May onwards.

Second of all the engineers' mafia in the CEB has ensured that hydro power will be inefficient no matter how much rainfall we get.ie. have to say, I share the same policy-- the country should come out of this mess, but it is highly unlikely due to these and many more reasons.

Hi Reyaz,

Thank you for your response. 

Yes. Policy rates increased by 700 bps which increased T Bill and T Bond rates. However, the REAL INTEREST RATE is the interest rate adjusted for inflation rate

Real Interest Rate = Nominal interest rate - Inflation rate

Therefore, the prevailling inflation rate stands at 34% and unofficial rate is 133%. Hence, the real interest rate is NEGATIVE for an investor holding on to FIXED term assets class such as T Bill or T Bond in an hyper inflationary environment.

Secondly, SL is currently generating 55% or more from hydro. Additionally, the country has coal till staff level agreement is done with IMF. 

All in all, the Colombo Stock Exchange is oversold pretty much from 13,500 to 7,800 levels now where the MARKET PE is 6.1x and DY 4. 

The ASI was at 8,000 levels when the USD/LKR was at 203/- and now trading at same or below when the USD/LKR is at 365. This means, ASI now logically trading at 4,400 levels if adjusted for USD depreciations from 203 to 365. 

Good Luck

Hi Atuts,


IMF Sollution

The IMF staff level agreement is due within 3~4 weeks, if you carefully listen to the Governor of CBSL Dr Nandalal, ex CBSL Governor/advisor to the present crisis management Dr Kumaraswamy and Honorable PM. All 3 personalities communicating a single message is what's important.

As per Dr Kumaraswamy, SL can expect foriegn inflows to CSE and Government Securities market with IMF staff level agreement. Additionally, USD 6B bridging finance facility is under negotiation with India.

One can believe nothing will work but SL has hired an external agency to negotiate with bon holders. Therefore, the country should be technically on recovery path with these debt restructuring plans, IMF negotiations and bridging finance. However, immidiate queues reductions would not be possible. IMF staff level agreement would rebuild confidence among investors 

No increase in Policy rates but T Bills and Bonds are coming down

NO POLICY rate increase published by CBSL in May 2022 after the 7% increase in April 2022. 

However, the T Bill have peaked around 24.9% and come down by about 3% during last 3 weeks auction. T Bonds have also recorded similar reduction in most of the tenures.

Considering the above, I don't agree with your statement

Good Luck
