* Singapore snaps six sessions of declines * Rise in Nov. inflation hurts Philippines * Resource, banking stocks help Indonesia By Soumyajit Saha Dec 5 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Thursday, with Indonesia leading the gains, buoyed by hopes of a preliminary Sino-U.S. trade deal before further tariffs kick in on Dec. 15. U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday raised expectations of a breakthrough after he said negotiations with China were "going very well," relieving some pressure in a week that has seen the U.S. announce tariffs on multiple other countries. Separately, media reports suggested the world's top two economies were closer to agreeing on the amount of tariffs to be rolled back in a phase-one trade deal.
* Trump says he could delay signing deal with China until end-2020 * Malaysia stocks fall to their lowest in 8 weeks * Vietnam bucks trend to gain slightly By Soumyajit Saha Dec 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets tracked a global downturn on Wednesday as the Trump administration dashed hopes of a quick preliminary deal to halt impending U.S. tariffs on China. U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he had "no deadline" for a trade deal with China, and could wait until after the U.S. presidential election in November 2020 to sign an agreement. "There is justifiable cause to correlate Trump's bluster to Beijing's insistence that tariff rollback is a pre-condition to any deal," Mizuho Bank said in a note to clients.
Singapore agribusiness Wilmar International hopes to receive regulatory approval early next year for the initial public offering of its China business, Yihai Kerry Arawana Holdings (YKA), it said on Thursday. Wilmar, which is valued at more than $19 billion, had announced its intention to list the business in 2017, after having shelved plans for a roughly $3-billion listing of its Chinese unit in Hong Kong in 2009. "Regarding YKA IPO, we are waiting for approval from the Chinese regulators and we hope to receive it by early 2020," Wilmar said in an emailed response to a Reuters query on the IPO status.
SINGAPORE (Nov 12): Wilmar International, Asia’s leading agribusiness group, reported a 10% y-o-y increase in 3Q19 earnings ended Sept to US$447.1 million ($608 million).
* China says agreed with U.S. to cancel tariffs in phases * Philippines Q3 GDP growth better than forecast * Thailand leads gains with a 1% rise By Sameer Manekar Nov 7 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets climbed on Thursday, with Thailand leading the pack with a 1% gain, after China said it agreed with the United States to cancel in phases the tariffs imposed on each others' goods. China's commerce ministry said Washington and Beijing must simultaneously cancel some duties on each others' goods for the two sides to reach a "phase one" trade deal. "The trade war started with tariffs, and should end with the cancellation of tariffs," Gao Feng, a commerce ministry spokesman, told reporters without specifying a timetable.
Adding to the cautious mood was a Reuters report that an interim trade deal between the United States and China might not be completed in time for signing in Chile next month as expected. Philippine shares fell as consumer and industrial stocks weighed on the benchmark.
Wilmar International scooped up about 175,000 tonnes, or 3,439 lots, of raw sugar to be delivered against the ICE Futures U.S. contract that expired on Monday, three traders said. A spokesperson for Wilmar did not respond immediately to request for comment.
Wilmar International’s (Wilmar) latest 2Q19 quarterly results were kind of disappointing. Affected by lower crush margins attributable to the impact of African swine fever on soybean meal demand and recognized losses due to the consolidation of Shree Renuka Sugars, the group’s net profit for the quarter sank 52.3 percent to US$150.9 million. The less-than-satisfactory results, […]
* U.S. President delays some tariffs on Chinese imports * Financial and consumer stocks lift Philippine index * Singapore hurt by losses in consumer sector By Soumyajit Saha Aug 14 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Wednesday, in line with global peers, after Washington delayed some tariffs on Chinese imports in much-needed relief for financial markets gripped in economic turmoil. The decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to selectively delay the tariffs that were set to go into effect on Sept. 1, doused friction between the two countries that has roiled global markets. A partial tariff delay is not going to solve the core issues between the U.S. and China," Margaret Yang, a market analyst at CMC Markets said in a note to clients.
Despite the carrot of a potential exemption from import tariffs, Chinese soybean crushers are unlikely to buy in bulk from the United States any time soon as they grapple with poor margins and longer-term doubts about Sino-U.S. trade relations, people familiar with the matter said. China imposed a 25% tariff on U.S. soy imports last year as Washington-Beijing trade disagreements boiled over into tit-for-tat levies on each other's goods.
