Seed Weekly - The Year to Date

The Year to Date

It is hard to believe that the first quarter of the year is already behind us, and what an interesting quarter it has been.

Local Asset Classes

Property continued to dominate the local markets, returning 13.7% so far in 2015. Over the past year property did 41.4%, outperforming local equities by 28.9%.

While the local equity market has delivered a decent 5.9% so far this year, we have seen a large dispersion in returns between the various sectors. The Financial sector was the best performing sector, returning 11.2%, which is almost double Industrials’ 5.6% YTD. Resources remained the most volatile asset class, currently down 0.2% for the year. We have seen massive swings in the returns of Resource counters. Resources were up 8.7% in February and down 8.5% in March.

Oil Price

So far in 2015 we’ve seen a barrel of Brent Crude drop to $46.15 by the middle of January. In the graph below you can see the dramatic fall in the oil price since the middle of 2014, where it had been consistently trading between $100 and $120 a barrel. We have since seen oil come back a bit and ended March 2015 at $55 per barrel. The decrease in headline inflation experienced locally, and worldwide, is a knock on effect from the low oil price.

It is hard to think that in 2008 during the financial crisis, but before the peak in the commodity cycle, we saw the price rocket to $145 a barrel. At that stage stories of “Peak Oil” abounded with 2008 year end price targets of $200 a barrel. From peak to trough, Brent Crude Oil’s price declined by 68%, so the most recent price fall has not been as severe.

Quantitative Easing in Europe

In January Mario Draghi (Head of the European Central Bank) committed €1.1 trillion towards their version of quantitative easing. He pledged to buy €60 billion worth of bonds starting March 2015 until September 2016. The aim is to get cash into circulation and revive inflation in the region. Hopefully this will be enough to kick-start Europe’s growth that has been stagnant. Fund managers predict that the search for yield will continue, which will continue to support equity markets. So far we have seen the Euro devalue versus the US dollar. This devaluation will make European goods cheaper to the rest of the world, which should help to stimulate exports and help to prop up the region’s economy.

All of these, and other, factors are filtered by the investment team and used in the process to make decisions that we expect will contribute over meaningful time periods.

Kind regards,

Gerbrandt Kruger
