U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told The Associated Press on Sunday that officials are conscious of the potential threat, and he warned commanders to be on the lookout for any problems within their ranks as the inauguration approaches.
(Bloomberg) -- HDFC Bank Ltd., India’s largest private lender by assets, posted third-quarter profit that beat analyst expectations after earnings were buoyed by strong loan growth. Shares jumped.Net income was 87.6 billion rupees ($1.2 billion) in the three months through December compared with 74.2 billion rupees a year earlier, exchange filings on Saturday showed. That beat the average estimate of 76.4 billion rupees from 18 analysts, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.India’s most valuable bank by market capitalization is the first lender to report third-quarter results. While banks largely withstood the coronavirus pandemic’s economic fallout due to a revival in consumer spending, a six-month moratorium and a loan restructuring program has masked some of the soured debt.Shares in HDFC Bank surged as much as 2.3% in Mumbai on Monday to a record 1,500 rupees, while the S&P BSE Bankex Index fell.HDFC Bank’s 18% profit growth may be “among the strongest performance reported by the larger Indian banks in fiscal 3Q ended December,” said Diksha Gera, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, adding that “peers Axis, ICICI and Yes Bank are likely to lag.”The gross bad loan ratio at the bank led by Chief Executive Officer Sashidhar Jagdishan narrowed to 0.8% at the end of December from 1.08% three months earlier. The ratio would have been 1.38% without the relaxation of rules regarding the recognition for bad debt, the bank said in the filing.To read about the boost to banks’ consumer loan bookHDFC Bank’s loan book grew by an annual 16% in the October to December period, outpacing the sector’s average growth of 6%. Last year, the bank was ordered to curb some digital and credit card operations following a series of technical glitches, a rare step by the financial regulator as online transactions surge in the nation.In 2020, “there were worries on unsecured loans, growth, management transition and tech-related issues during the later part of the year,” said Suresh Ganapathy, an analyst at Macquarie Capital Securities (India) Pvt. “Despite all the challenges, HDFC Bank has done well.”(Updates with analyst comments and share reaction.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- One of India’s top fund managers is turning bullish on higher-yielding rupee corporate bonds based on the view that the nation’s recovery will outpace the consensus estimate of economists.Maneesh Dangi, who oversees $25 billion of debt assets at Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC Ltd., expects India’s economy to expand by 13% in the fiscal year starting April, compared with a median forecast of 9% by economists surveyed by Bloomberg. Dangi bases his outlook in part on optimism about the jobless rate falling after lockdowns were eased as well as policy steps helping minimize insolvencies.Aditya Birla Sun Life Corporate Bond Fund is the third-best performer among India’s mutual funds focused on the company note category in the past year with an 11.4% return on its regular investment plan, according to data from the Association of Mutual Funds in India.“We will start dialing up AA risk,” said Dangi, 44, referring to corporate bonds with credit ratings in the AA category. “Quality AA rated papers where yields have not compressed to pre-Covid levels are offering attractive returns.”That approach must contend with numerous risks. While the government has said economic indicators suggest a broad-based recovery ahead, it forecasts the worst contraction since 1952 for the current fiscal year. Recent Covid-19 resurgence in countries that, like India, had success after strict earlier lockdowns is also a reminder of how unpredictable the crisis can be. And the nation is still home to one of the world’s largest outbreaks globally.Dangi said the “biggest risk” to his strategy would be any premature withdrawal of support measures to counter the pandemic, and he stressed that officials face a delicate task in communicating with debt markets.Last week brought a stark warning on that account. Yield premiums on rupee corporate bonds jumped after falling to record lows in 2020, following an announcement by the central bank that it would drain cash from the market in an effort to normalize liquidity operations.Dangi had been reducing holdings of all but the safest corporate bonds in recent years until of late. He had done so because of a credit crisis triggered by the failure of a large shadow bank in 2018 that stung local markets even before the pandemic.Read about RBI assuring bond investors over its easy monetary stanceNow, though, he is keen on buying debt from firms that are likely to get upgraded to AA in the near future. He has also shortlisted a few non-AAA rated borrowers from sectors including commodities, chemicals and automobile components, which could benefit from any sharp economic recovery.(Adds chart showing rising yields for corporate rupee notes)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries plans to embed its ecommerce app JioMart into WhatsApp within six months, financial daily Mint reported https://bit.ly/3oTRtPB on Monday, as the Indian conglomerate looks to ramp up its retail and grocery business in the country. Reliance, which has been trying to move away from its mainstay oil and energy business, had last year raised about $26 billion from investors like Google and Facebook for its digital and retail arms as it takes on Amazon.com Inc and Walmart-backed Flipkart in India. The move to integrate JioMart with WhatsApp will allow hundreds of millions of users to order products from Reliance without having to leave the app, Mint said, citing two officials aware of the development.
Jonny Bairstow and Dan Lawrence held their nerve in a 52-run unbroken stand to guide England to a seven-wicket win Monday on the fifth and final morning of the series-opening test against Sri Lanka.

(Bloomberg) -- A stronger U.S. dollar is proving to be an early test for emerging-market currencies on the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration.The greenback gained over the last two weeks, buoyed by the president-elect’s proposal for a $1.9 trillion stimulus package. Most developing-nation currencies have slumped in that span, and history suggests further pain may be in store.MSCI Inc.’s gauge of emerging-market currencies ended 2020 with its biggest quarterly advance in a decade as optimism over the distribution of Covid-19 vaccines bolstered risk appetite. Now, the backdrop of rising cases, renewed lockdowns and vaccine concerns threatens to reverse those flows.“If vaccines prove less effective than we expect and [the] global economy stumbles, the ‘safe haven’ dollar would likely appreciate,” Goldman Sachs Group Inc. strategists including Zach Pandl wrote in a report.Listen: EM Weekly Podcast: Dollar’s Path; China GDP; Biden InaugurationStill, the strategists “expect broad dollar weakness” this year as exposures to risk assets and upside in commodity prices can outweigh the potential drag from higher U.S. rates.One currency of interest to investors is the Turkish lira, which has climbed since hitting a record low in November. On Thursday, the central bank is expected to keep the nation’s one-week repo rate at 17%.“The lira has rallied and reserves are stabilizing, providing no reason to raise rates further,” according to Bloomberg Economics. “Still, inflation accelerated in December, limiting the scope for rate cuts.”Policy makers in Malaysia, South Africa and Brazil will also decide on their borrowing costs this week.Meantime, Biden’s return to the White House on Wednesday will carry particular significance for traders who follow relations between the world’s two largest economies. On Friday, the Trump administration announced it would sanction six officials from China and Hong Kong in a parting shot to Beijing.Central Banks DecideTurkey’s central bank will probably leave its benchmark rate unchanged, according to the median estimate of 21 economists surveyed by BloombergTwo economists predict an increase of 50 basis points, while two forecast a hike by a percentage pointThe Monetary Policy Committee led by Governor Naci Agbal boosted the one-week repo rate to 17% from 15% last month, bolstering credibility with investors after he pledged to tighten policy when needed to keep prices in checkSouth Africa’s central bank will probably leave its policy rate on hold at 3.5% on Thursday, according to 15 out of 16 economists in a Bloomberg surveyOne predicted a reduction by 25 basis pointsThe second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, renewed lockdown restrictions and the return of power cuts will likely stall a recovery in an economy that contracted 8% in 2020, according to central bank forecasts. Even so, the central bank signaled at its previous policy meeting that it’s reluctant to lower borrowing costs further after cutting the repurchase rate five times last year by a total of three percentage pointsBank Negara Malaysia is expected to keep its benchmark rate on hold Wednesday, according to a median estimate of economists surveyed by BloombergBloomberg Economics argues that the central bank can afford to stand pat after 125 basis points of easing last year. Oil prices are also recovering, and Malaysia’s key trading partner, China, remains on the mend, it saidStill, it looks like a close decision, with 11 out of the 23 economists in the Bloomberg survey expecting a 25-basis-point cut after Malaysia was placed under renewed lockdown, and in part because of Malaysia’s persistently low inflation readingsMalaysia’s December year-over-year CPI is expected to remain deeply negative on FridayThe rate decision comes after Malaysia’s king declared a nationwide state of emergency for the first time in more than half a century, suspending parliament in a move that allows embattled Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to avoid facing an election until the pandemic is over.Bank Indonesia is expected to hold policy rates unchanged on ThursdayThe central bank didn’t signal that more cuts were imminent at its previous meeting in December, and may be concerned about the risk of higher U.S. yields putting the rupiah under pressureOne economist in a Bloomberg survey expects a 25 basis-point cut, perhaps because inflation has remained below target for seven months straightREAD Reflation Flashes Red for Indonesia, Malaysia Debt: SEAsia RatesChina’s one-year loan prime rate -- the reference rate for bank loans to companies -- will likely remain at 3.85% in January, according to Bloomberg EconomicsBrazil’s central bank is expected to hold the key rate at an all-time low on Wednesday, while traders look for signs of more hawkish language after policy makers warned that inflation pressures could persist into the new yearKey Chinese DataChina’s economic data was probably enough to restore China’s outperformance narrative.

(Bloomberg) -- China’s economy exceeded its pre-pandemic growth rates in the fourth quarter, propelling it to a stronger-than-expected expansion of 2.3% for the full year and making it the only major one to avoid contraction in 2020.Gross domestic product climbed 6.5% in the final quarter from a year earlier, fueled by industrial output, the statistics bureau said Monday. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg had predicted 6.2% growth for the quarter and 2.1% for the full year.“China has more than returned to trend growth,” said Raymond Yeung, chief economist for Greater China at Australia and New Zealand Banking Group. The strong rebound means authorities can “prioritize structural reforms rather than economic reflation” in 2021, he said.The V-shaped recovery was based on successful control of Covid cases and fiscal and monetary stimulus which boosted investment in real estate and infrastructure. Growth was further spurred by overseas consumer demand for medical equipment and work-from-home devices, with exports expanding 3.6% in 2020 compared to the previous year.“The quarter really seems to have shown the economy ended the year on a strong note, manufacturing is doing well,” Cui Li, head of macro research at CCB International Holdings Ltd. in Hong Kong said in an interview with Bloomberg Television.The Chinext Index of small caps gained 1.8% as of the mid-day break, while the yield on the most actively traded contract of 10-year government bonds rose 1 basis point to 3.16%, set for the highest in one week. The onshore yuan weakened 0.09% to 6.4874 per dollar as the greenback rebounded.What Bloomberg Economics Says...“The Chinese economy accelerated to a strong finish to 2020, though challenges at the start of 2021 could put a damper on growth.”Data for December suggests that the gap between demand and supply is opening up again, and this may reflect the impact on consumption from recent viral outbreaks.\-- Chang Shu, chief Asia economistFor the full note, click here.Emerging from the pandemic larger than when it started is a capstone to a dramatic year for the world’s second-largest economy, which began 2020 with a historic first-quarter slump when the coronavirus lockdowns brought most activity to a halt.Even though China’s annual growth was the slowest in four decades, a global contraction in output means China increased its share of the world economy at the fastest pace on record, according to World Bank estimates. Based on projections from the International Monetary Fund, China will now overtake the U.S. by 2028, two years earlier than previously predicted, according to Nomura Holdings Inc.Economists expect China’s GDP will expand 8.2% this year, continuing to outpace global peers even as they begin to recover due to a roll-out of vaccines.Growth this year will depend on whether China can prevent a large-scale resurgence of virus infections, and on whether it can pass the baton of spending from local governments and large state companies to consumers and private businesses. The government has recently imposed travel restrictions on several northern cities due to small-scale virus outbreaks, including locking down the capital of Hebei province, a city of 11 million people near Beijing.“There’s a huge discrepancy between production and consumption,” said Bo Zhuang, chief China economist at TS Lombard. “I am not very optimistic about domestic demand, as wage growth is not back to pre-pandemic levels. Government spending is going to grow more weakly this year than last year as local officials have been told to tighten their belts.”The investment and export-driven recovery in 2020 has exacerbated existing imbalances in the economy. Consumption spending per capita fell 4% in 2020 from a year earlier after adjusting for inflation, while investment in fixed assets such as real estate and infrastructure grew 2.9%, according to the statistics bureau. Industrial production surged, with China producing more than 1 billion tons of crude steel in 2020, an annual record.“There is relatively large room” for China to raise the contribution rate of final consumption to economic growth, the head of the statistics bureau Ning Jizhe said after the data was released at a press conference in Beijing. For 2021, “it is necessary to improve the consumption ability of residents, improve consumption policy and environment, and cultivate more consumption growth drivers.”China’s increasingly tense relationship with the U.S. could also weigh on the outlook. In his final weeks in office, President Donald Trump has tightened restrictions on Chinese businesses to curb the nation’s dominance in high-tech industries, roiling financial markets. It’s still unclear if the incoming administration under Joe Biden will maintain those measures.The fiscal and monetary stimulus to support the economy through the pandemic has been accompanied by a surge in debt which authorities are now seeking to curb as the recovery takes hold. At a December meeting to lay out economic goals for 2021, the ruling Communist Party signaled that stimulus would be gradually withdrawn, although it would avoid any “sharp turns” in policy.“Beijing is withdrawing stimulus, which will weaken investment in the coming months,” said Houze Song, a researcher on China’s economy at the Paulson Institute.(Updates with comments from economists.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
