  • China Industrial Profits Decline In April

    China's industrial profits decreased in April, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed Monday.

    In April, profits of large industrial firms declined 3.7 percent on year in contrast to an increase of 13.9 percent growth in March.

    Industrial profits fell 3.4 percent in the first four months of 2019 from the same period of last year compared to a decrease of 3.3 percent in three months to March.

    Zhu Hong of the statistics bureau said the decline in profits in April was driven by the timing of Value Added Tax cut.

    Producer prices in Japan were up 0.9 percent on year in April, the Bank of Japan said on Tuesday.

    That was shy of expectations for an increase of 1.1 percent on year, which would have been unchanged from the March reading.

    On a monthly basis, producer prices slipped 0.2 percent after advancing 0.7 percent a month earlier.

    Individually, prices were up for leading and office space rental - while they were lower for transportation, employment agencies, software development, engineering, communications and advertising.

  • UK Shop Price Inflation Accelerates In May

    UK shop price inflation increased notably in May on non-food prices, the British Retail Consortium reported Wednesday. Shop prices inflation doubled to 0.8 percent in May from 0.4 percent in April.

    Shop price growth in May was the second highest inflation rate seen in the last six years, though it remains well below headline inflation, Helen Dickinson, chief executive at BRC said.

    The manufacturing sector in China turned to contraction in May, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 49.4.

    The non-manufacturing PMI came in at 54.3 - unchanged from the previous month and in line with expectations.

    The composite index had a score of 53.3, down fractionally from 53.4 a month earlier.

  • Ireland Construction Activity Growth Slows In May



    Ireland's construction activity growth eased to the lowest in four months in May, survey data from IHS Markit showed on Monday.

    The Ulster Bank Construction Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI, fell to 54.9 in May from 56.6 in April. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.

    The housing sub-category rose at the fastest pace in three monitored sub-sectors for the fifth straight month in May. The corresponding PMI slid slightly to 58.3 from 60.5 a month ago.

    Commercial activity increased at the slowest pace since August 2013. The commercial activity index came in 53.1 versus 54.6 in the previous month.

    Civil engineering activity fell for the ninth month in a row. The civil engineering activity PMI dropped to 46.3 from 46.4 in April.

    "New business and employment levels continued to rise at healthy rates in May, albeit in line with overall trends, both indices eased last month," Simon Barry, chief economist Republic of Ireland at Ulster Bank, said.

    "Survey respondents remain optimistic about the sector's prospects over the year ahead, with expectations of stronger customer demand cited as an important source of support."

  • New Zealand Manufacturing Growth Near Stagnation



    New Zealand manufacturing sector was close to stagnation in May, the latest BNZ survey showed Friday.

    The BNZ-BusinessNZ Performance of Manufacturing Index fell 2.5 points to 50.2 in May. This was the lowest score since December 2012.

    The production sub-index declined to 46.4 in May from 50.1 a month ago. This was the lowest since April 2012. A score below 50 indicates contraction in the sector.

    As a growth risk indicator it may not be flashing bright red just yet, but it is moving in that direction in taking on a darker shade of amber, Doug Steel, a senior economist at BNZ Research said.

    The PMI sends a warning signal for near term growth via its mix of falling production, near flat new orders, and rising inventory, Steel added. Next week's first quarter GDP should be reasonable, but beyond this downside risks are accumulating.

  • BCC Trims UK Growth Outlook



    The British Chambers of Commerce downgraded its growth outlook for next year as unwinding of historically-high inventory levels amid weak business investment weigh on economic activity.

    In the latest economic forecast, released Monday, the growth projection for 2020 was lowered to 1 percent from 1.3 percent and that for 2021 to 1.2 percent from 1.4 percent.

    However, the growth outlook for 2019 was lifted marginally to 1.3 percent from 1.2 percent, citing the exceptionally rapid stock-building ahead of the original Brexit deadline in March.

    Gross domestic product was forecast to remain flat in the second quarter of 2019 after expanding 0.5 percent in the first quarter.

    Over the near-term, the lobby expect that the ongoing Brexit impasse, together with the high upfront cost of doing business in the UK and the running down of excess stock to suffocate investment activity.

    Business investment was expected to decline 1.3 percent this year versus prior forecast of 1 percent drop. Further, the lobby projected 0.4 percent growth next year, before improving to 1.1 percent in 2021.

    Further, trade was set to make a negative contribution as exchange rate volatility, Brexit uncertainty and a subdued global economy, weaken trading conditions for British exporters.

    Export growth was seen at 1.6 percent this year and next and 1.7 percent in 2021, compared to import growth of 4.3 percent in 2019, 1.8 percent in 2020 and 2.2 percent in 2021.

    Nonetheless, consumer spending was forecast to remain resilient on low unemployment and earnings growth to stay above inflation. Household consumption growth outlook was lifted to 1.4 percent for 2019 and to 1.4 percent in 2020.

    The forecast was based on the assumption that the UK avoids a messy and disorderly Brexit.

    "Businesses are putting resources into contingency plans, such as stockpiling, rather than investing in ventures that would positively contribute to long-term economic growth," Adam Marshall, Director General of the BCC, said. "This is simply not sustainable."

    Business communities expect the next Prime Minister to quickly find a sensible and pragmatic way forward to avoid a messy and disorderly Brexit, Marshall added.
