Bonds, budgets and bubbles

Are we in a stock market bubble? And if we are, what should investors do about it? Historically, it's always been hard to know how far a bull market can go. And value has proven to be a very weak read on which to lean, because value can go up and up. The nightmare for any value manager is Japan in 1989 when the price earnings ratio went to 65 times. It had never previously been over 25 until that cycle. But bond market moves this week have made investors nervous that the frothy parts of the market could be the first to go in panicked selloff. The scale of the selloff prompted Australia's central bank to launch a surprise bond buying operation to try and staunch the bleeding, helping yields there come off early peaks. If rates rise sooner than expected Tito's budget forecasts might have be tossed out the window. Michael Avery talks to Warwick Lucas Chief Investment Officer at Galileo Asset Managers & Raymond Parsons, professor in the School of Business and Governance at North West University about the week's market activity and the budget

Budget Review – Wrestling the hippo

Government and ANC ideology are a perpetual constraint on business. Take mining for example, the flywheel of this economy. Electricity is the number one issue. The Mining Charter, transport and exploration are second-order issues. Instead of acting, we score more own goals. Against this backdrop, this felt like a no-nonsense sort of budget. There were no grand analogies with hardy drought resistant aloes or harking back to Manuel’s plums. There was also no mention of Eskom’s debt. But in the main, a budget that delivers reduced bond issuance, some small tax relief as opposed to the feared tax increases, and offers some more detail on PPPs and broader reorientation of government spending to more productive areas with higher fiscal multipliers, should be welcomed. Michael Avery speaks to Annabel Bishop, Investec Chief Economist; Peter Attard-Montalto, head of capital markets research at Intellidex; And Keith Engel, the Chief Executive of SA Institute of Tax Professionals; about the good the bad and the ugly of the 2021 Budget.
