Fitch: сделка по приватизации 19,5% акций "Роснефти" была прозрачной

В агентстве Fitch назвали прозрачной сделку по приватизации 19,5% ценных бумаг "Роснефти". Пронедра ранее сообщали, что в Fitch признались - они не могут до конца понять, по какой схеме проводилась приватизация пакета акций российского нефтегазового гиганта. Однако в итоге агентство заявило, что сделка по приобретению акций "Роснефти" Qatar Investment Authority и компанией Glencore была прозрачной. В Fitch отметили, что сделка стала важной вехой для всего сектора экономики. При этом в агентстве заявили, что рейтинг "Роснефти" не устанавливают, потому не могут знать подробности о сделке. Но вся имеющаяся информация снимает возникшие ранее вопросы, она подтверждает структуру акционерного капитала. Напомним, что сумма сделки по продаже пакета ценных бумаг нефтегазовой компании составила 710,8 миллиарда рублей или порядка 11,1 миллиарда долларов. В российский бюджет указанная сумма уже поступила. Инвесторы внесли 3 миллиарда долларов, остальные средства - кредитные. (https://pronedra.ru/oil/2...)

Dow Streak Of Record Highs In Danger As S&P Slides; Gold Surges

The near-record string of 10 consecutive Dow Industrials record highs, a streak not seen since early 1987, may be about to end if futures, which are currently trading -0.3% lower, fail to stage a rebound. Global markets started off Friday on the back foot, with most Asian markets dropping, while commodity-related sectors and banks led European shares lower for a third straight session on Friday as the dollar was poised for a weekly loss as the latest attempt to spark the "Trumpflation trade" fizzled, sending gold to $1,256, the highest since the US presidential election, as the dollar slumped following Mnuchin's comments. Investors are turning cautious as European political risks remain and ahead of a major speech from U.S. President Donald Trump next week. The big mover in commodities is Gold which has solidly jumped above the $1,250 level, a largely USD-based move, as risk sentiment rose despite the weaker greenback, but sustainability as these levels (Gold) are key over coming sessions. Gold's rise for a fourth week was aided by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who said Thursday he expects low borrowing costs to persist, sparking a drop in the dollar. Mnuchin also took the edge off the recent market optimism when he said any policy steps by the Trump administration would probably have only a limited impact this year. The comments, made in his first televised interviews since taking office last week, suggested much work was still needed on a sweeping tax reform plan that Mnuchin called his main priority. "Mnuchin's comments were less belligerently reflationary than they could have been, in a dollar strength context, and that probably did much of the damage (to the dollar)," said UBS Wealth Management currency strategist Geoffrey Yu, in London. Concerns about the credibility of Trump's tax plan also emerged: “Next week it will be three weeks since President Trump promised something ‘phenomenal’ with respect to tax reform and investors are starting to become a little restless,” Michael Hewson, the London-based chief market analyst at CMC Markets, said in a report. If Trump’s speech next week fails to provide details, “then the rally that we’ve seen in the past three months could become susceptible to some profit-taking,” he said. As a result, a fifth weekly gain for global equities that’s helped push their value above $70 trillion is losing momentum as money managers grapple with political uncertainty and the Federal Reserve’s schedule for lifting borrowing costs. Traders are taking profits before Trump’s address to House and Senate lawmakers Tuesday in the U.S. European shares slid after subdued forecasts from European bluechips including BASF and Vivendi and a drop in mining shares, while Standard Chartered was among the worst performers in the FTSE 100 as profits fell short of analyst expectations. RBS also trades in the red after the bank announced a whopping GBP 7bIn loss for 2016. Elsewhere, French telecom giant Vivendi is the notable laggard across Europe amid reports that Milan prosecutors are looking in the company over alleged market manipulation in stake building in MediaSet. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell 0.3 percent as of 10:06 a.m. in London, dropping for a third day and paring a weekly advance. London copper prices recovered slightly from their big overnight fall on the back of fresh doubts about Chinese demand. Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange CMCU3 was up 0.8 percent at $5,907 a tonne by 0700 GMT after falling 3 percent in the previous session. Japan’s Topix index lost 0.4 percent. The gauge rose 0.4 percent for the week. Futures on the S&P 500 fell 0.3 percent. The index rose less than 0.1 percent on Thursday, while the Dow posted a 10th day of gains, its longest streak of record closes since 1987. Oil prices fell after U.S. crude inventories rose for a seventh week, showing the market is still struggling to ease oversupply despite producers' efforts to rein in output. Benchmark Brent crude oil was down 48 cents at $56.10 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate traded at $54.06 a barrel, down 39 cents. In rates, German bonds were supported as credit spreads widened. German two-year yields dropped three basis points, with the ECB’s bond-buying program seen supporting the sector. Having routed the French bond market recently, sellers are now focusing on Italy where the German-Italian 10Y spread rose above 200 bps. The swap spread rose to new records across the two- to five-year sector. A note from Citigroup suggested that German two-year yields could fall to minus 1 percent or more, as the ECB will be forced to buy more short-dated bonds. Market Snapshot S&P 500 futures down 0.3% to 2,354 STOXX Europe 600 down 0.6% to 371 MXAP down 0.4% to 145.92 MXAPJ down 0.5% to 468.82 Nikkei down 0.5% to 19,283.54 Topix down 0.4% to 1,550.14 Hang Seng Index down 0.6% to 23,965.70 Shanghai Composite up 0.06% to 3,253.43 Sensex up 0.1% to 28,892.97 Australia S&P/ASX 200 down 0.8% to 5,738.99 Kospi down 0.6% to 2,094.12 German 10Y yield fell 2.9 bps to 0.204% Euro up 0.07% to 1.0589 per US$ Brent Futures down 0.7% to $56.19/bbl Italian 10Y yield rose 3.1 bps to 2.225% Spanish 10Y yield rose 5.4 bps to 1.74% Brent Futures down 0.7% to $56.19/bbl Gold spot up 0.5% to $1,255.96 U.S. Dollar Index down 0.2% to 100.90 Top Overnight News from BBG Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc laid out a plan to cut costs by 2 billion pounds ($2.5 billion) over the next four years as it posted its ninth straight annual loss and delayed profitability targets After striking deals in Russian oil and Congolese copper mining, Glencore Plc has set its sights on the U.S. grain- trading industry Pimco says Beijing’s “cautious tightening signals” are largely being ignored by banks and at the local level, where attention is focused on maintaining steady economic growth Value Partners, one of the world’s best-performing junk bond funds, is betting on stressed debt New Exxon Chief Darren Woods is focusing on climate change, calling for a carbon tax to discourage use of polluting fuels In Asia, equity markets traded lower following a mixed lead from US where the DJIA and S&P 500 were buoyed by healthcare and utilities. ASX 200 (-0.8%) underperformed and was weighed by the metals & mining sector amid commodity prices sliding lower, after Dalian Iron ore declined 5.5% yesterday. Nikkei 225 (-0.5%) conformed to the downbeat tone despite support from a weakening JPY overnight as well as Toshiba stocks trading higher by around +5%. In China, Hang Seng (-0.4%) and Shanghai Comp. (+0.1%) suffered from the PBoC's trend of ever weakening liquidity injections this week, with the daily operation providing only a total of CNY 30bIn. 10yr JGBs traded higher due to the risk averse tone in the region with the curve flattening amid outperformance seen in the super long end.

Elsewhere, French telecom giant Vivendi is the notable laggard across Europe amid reports that Milan prosecutors are looking in the company over alleged market manipulation in stake building in MediaSet. Across fixed income markets, yields in the German 2-yr took another leg lower to print fresh record lows (as a reminder, the ECB previously said that they investigating the squeeze in the Eurozone repo market), the GE-FR spread continues to see some modest widening, while the fixed income space has been supported by the wave of short covering.

The yen rose 0.1 percent to 112.3 per dollar, after rising 0.6 percent Thursday. It's been more of the same in the FX markets today as the USD continues to lose ground, but very modestly so given the consensus base line of 2 Fed rate hikes this year. Rather the moves are reflective of the skew moving towards an `on-hold' call at the March meeting, though the odds are mixed among the surveys, stretching form circa 20-40% for a 25bp rate hike. Looking at the USDJPY, TSY yields are grinding towards the lower end of the range established in recent months, with the key 10yr still inside 2.30-2.55%. We have dipped under 2.37% this morning, resulting in a rather reluctant move below 112.50, though no sudden urge to recover. This is much the same for the EUR/USD move towards 1.0600, but with (French/Dutch) election news subsiding, the single unit has moderated since. GBP is in limbo as a result, with EUFt/GBP drawn towards the 0.8450 level. We have attempted a return towards 0.8400 — which may well still materialise — but comments from the Bundesbank's Dombret including the prospects of UK access looking 'rather dim' have, at the very least, curtailed the impromptu rise in GBP. Cable is struggling well ahead of 1.2600, as it did in yesterday's North American session. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate traded 0.6 percent lower at $54.12 a barrel. Brent fell 0.7 percent to $56.22. The big mover in commodities are in precious metals where Gold has now pierced the USD1250 level, though with limited momentum. This is purely USD based, as risk sentiment remains on an even keel, so sustainability as these levels (Gold) are key over coming sessions. Base metals may be showing some gains on the day, but after reports that president Trump's fiscal plans may be delayed into next year, Copper has retreated some way below the USD2.700 level, dragging Iron Ore with it. Adding pressure on the latter are reports of growing stockpiles in China, and this has clear implications on demand forecasts going forward. Oil prices still holding familiar territory on hopes that the agreed production cuts will be followed up by 100% compliance. Yesterday's build reported in the DoE reported a small build, but having a modest impact in the aftermath. Looking at the day ahead, the only data due is January new home sales (expected to bounce back) and the final revisions to the University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading. US Event Calendar 10am: New Home Sales, est. 570,500, prior 536,000; MoM, est. 6.44%, prior -10.4% 10am: U. of Mich. Sentiment, est. 96, prior 95.7; Current Conditions, prior 111.2; Expectations, prior 85.7; 1 Yr Inflation, prior 2.8%; 5-10 Yr Inflation, prior 2.5% * * * DB's Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap It's perhaps not the best time to admit that I've no idea why Bunds are rallying so hard at the moment. 10y yields (-4.7bps) hit 0.228% yesterday, down from their YTD peak of 0.495% intraday on the 26th of January. 2y yields also closed another -3.0bps lower yesterday at -0.932%. They traded as ‘high’ as -0.648% back on the same day. The most obvious explanation is of course Euro systemic risk - especially from France and perhaps Italy. However other markets (equities, equity vol, the Euro, broader credit spreads etc) aren't moving much to price in redenomination risk in Europe. A lack of high quality collateral has been cited as an explanation but it's not clear there is much new info on this over recent days to explain the move. Perhaps it's as simple as government bond investors are generally by nature ultra conservative and Bunds seemingly offer complete safety from redenomination risk. Although on this we'd note that yesterday 10 year French OAT yields fell another -3.6bps and hit their lowest yield (0.978%) for 4 weeks. Ironically the latest Q4 Germany GDP numbers yesterday showed the country as ending the year as the fastest growing advanced economy in 2016. Indeed 2016 GDP growth in Germany was +1.9% which compares to +1.8% for the UK, +1.7% for the Eurozone and +1.6% for the US. New US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin does however expect growth in the US to hit a “sustainable growth rate of 3% or more” towards the end of next year following comments in a televised interview with CNBC yesterday. Mnuchin also said that the new administration is looking closely at the border adjustment tax and that the White House wants to pass a “very significant” tax reform by August. There was also some focus on his remarks about possibly issuing 50y or 100y Treasury bonds, saying that they are exploring the option and that they will reach out to the market and investors. On China and the recent FX manipulation chatter Mnuchin stopped short of labelling China a manipulator but said that the Treasury would go through the usual processes of looking at “currency manipulation across the board” suggesting also that no judgments will be made before the Treasury’s April report. On a related note there was also some focus on a Business Insider report suggesting that Trump may be considering delaying a proposed  $550bn infrastructure spending plan until 2018. The crux of it was that the administration’s time is being taken up by other big proposed reforms including taxes and the Obamacare repeal and that a timing delay to 2018 would make sense in the context of next year’s mid-term elections. While industrials and materials names did underperform on the back of that report it was still another fairly dull session overall for US equities. The S&P 500 finished +0.04% while the Dow ended +0.17% and took its run of new record highs to ten sessions in a row. By the way that is now 52 days that the S&P 500 hasn’t closed up or down by more than 1%. As a reminder the run in 2014 was 62 days so it’s now within sight. Needless to say that the VIX – little changed at 11.71 yesterday – continues to hover only just above the decade low levels. In rates Treasury yields also marched lower yesterday. 10y yields finished the day -4.1bps lower at 2.373% and are now down some 18bps from the January highs. The curve did however steepen slightly (30y yields finishing -2.0bps lower) probably reflecting those Mnuchin comments about possible ultra long-dated issuance. In commodities WTI Oil (+1.60%) did rise back above $54/bbl following the latest inventory data although base metals took a hit with Iron Ore and Copper  in particular both down over 3%. With little new news to report of this morning it appears that those declines in metals are to blame for a soft end to the week for risk in Asia. The Nikkei (-0.49%), Shanghai Comp (-0.35%), Hang Seng (-0.34%) and ASX (-0.85%) are all in the red. Currencies have been relatively flat while rates are stronger. Moving on. The Fedspeak continued again yesterday although it’s clear that the market is failing to price in much more chance of a March move despite a number of Fed officials signalling how “live” the March meeting is. Atlanta Fed President Lockhart was the latest yesterday and he said also that there will be “serious consideration” at the meeting but also that the term “fairly soon” (in reference to the FOMC minutes) “leaves options open for probably the next three meetings”. Lockhart also spoke about the balance sheet and said that he would be in favour of letting “natural runoff gradually shrink the balance sheet”. Late last night Dallas Fed President Kaplan also said that the committee should keep options open for a March move. Bloomberg’s calculator currently sits at a 38% probability for a March rate hike. It’s worth noting that the US data was a bit of a sideshow yesterday. Initial jobless claims came in at 244k and marginally higher than the week before while the Kansas City Fed’s manufacturing survey index rose  5pts to +14 and the highest since June 2011. Meanwhile there were also some comments from Bundesbank President Weidmann yesterday. He opined that “the balance of risks might be more favourable today that it was before” and that possible market  anticipations about a lift in interest rates by the ECB in 2019 “don’t sound absurd” and are “in the possibility that I see”. Staying in Europe, in terms of the other data yesterday, in Germany the latest consumer confidence reading revealed a small 0.2pt tick down in confidence to 10.0 although it’s worth highlighting that that is still at relatively elevated levels versus the last few years. In France business confidence was flat in February and in the UK the CBI’s distributive trades survey pointed to some improvement in retailers’ sales in February following a soft January. Just wrapping up, it’s worth noting that following a positive meeting between Merkel and Lagarde on Wednesday concerning Greece, the creditors are now expected to return to Greece next Tuesday where talks should focus on the exact fiscal tightening measures needed over 2018 and 2019, as well as conditional easing. So worth keeping an eye on how things proceed there. Looking at the day ahead, it looks set to be a fairly quiet end to the week. In Europe this morning we’ll get the February consumer confidence reading as well as industrial orders and sales data in Italy. Over in the US the only data due is January new home sales (expected to bounce back) and the final revisions to the University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading.

Futures Flat, Global Stocks Near Record High After Minutes Fail To Spark Dollar Rally

One day after the FOMC Minutes guided to a rate hike "fairly soon", but not soon enough in the eyes of the market (March hike odds dropped after the release), the dollar has posted minimal gains, while global stocks held near record highs on Thursday; S&P futures were fractionally in the green to start the session; crude climbed back above $54 after API showed U.S. stockpiles fell. US and euro zone government bond yields fell or held steady as concerns of an imminent rate hike faded. The rally that has taken the value of global equities to over $70 trillion and the MSCI All-Country World Index to a record, appears to again be losing momentum as investors grapple with political uncertainty and the Fed’s schedule for lifting borrowing costs. The minutes showed many Fed policymakers said it may be appropriate to raise rates "fairly soon" if jobs and inflation data met expectations. But they also highlighted deep uncertainty over President Donald Trump's economic program and wrestled with uncertainty on issues ranging from the Trump administration’s fiscal stimulus plans to the headwinds a rising dollar may pose. Stocks in Europe were mixed in early trading before rising led by telecommunications companies, following solid earnings from Telefonica SA. Bank stocks were stronger on the back of solid earnings from Barclalsy whose profit before tax of £3.2bn for 2016, rose threefold from the £1.1bn the year before. Its reorganisation has included the sale of its Africa business and selling off "non-core" assets.  The STOXX 600 stocks index was marginally higher and close to 14-month highs touched on Tuesday. A 4 percent fall in miner Rio Tinto and a fall of nearly 5 percent in EasyJet, which were among companies whose shares went ex-dividend, weighed on the index. The MSCI Asia index ex-Japan edged up 0.1 percent, trading near the highest level since July 2015 it hit on Wednesday. Earlier, the index lost as much as 0.15%. Japan's Nikkei closed fractionally lower, as banks fell, and Australian shares ended down 0.4 percent. MSCI's world index also nudged higher and was within half a point of Wednesday's record high. The dollar edged up less than 0.1 percent against a basket of major currencies but held below highs hit on Wednesday, having fallen immediately after the minutes were released. The euro, which has been buffeted by investor nerves over France's presidential election, to be held in April and May, was flat at $1.0556. The yen was also barely changed at 113.28. Sterling strengthened 0.2 percent to $1.2468. As discussed yesterday, in addition to Trump's policies on taxes, spending and trade, markets are now trying to gauge his attitude to the dollar. Trump said before his inauguration that the dollar's strength against the Chinese yuan was "killing us", raising concern in the "strong dollar" policy espoused by recent U.S. administrations could change. However, in an interview with the WSJ, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin praised the strong dollar on Wednesday, saying it reflected confidence in the economy. French bonds advanced after a pact between independent presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron and centrist Francois Bayrou, which for now has helped ease fears the country could elect a leader who favors leaving the European Union. "Yesterday's developments in France were positive for French bonds and broader risk appetite," said Orlando Green, European fixed income strategist at Credit Agricole in London. Earlier this morning, French OATs extended gains, led by the 10y-30y sector, as 30y bonds fall as much as 4bps following latest OpinionWay poll showing gains for Macron in second round. Poll shows Macron would beat Le Pen 60%-40% in the second round; that compares with 59%-41% spread in Wednesday’s poll.  Italian bonds underperform with 10y yields rising 6bps, leading losses, as concession is built ahead of next week’s supply, which include two issues in the 10y bucket for €2-3BN. German 10Year bonds edged up 1 basis point to 0.28%, having closed on Wednesday at 0.27 percent. Stronger-than-expected demand at sale of 20-year debt causes Japan’s sovereign curve to flatten; bonds rise in Singapore ahead of this year’s first 10-year sale. Oil prices rose after data showed a decline in U.S. crude stockpiles as imports fell. Brent crude last traded at $56.56, up 72 cents a barrel. Prices have been rising since the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries and other oil producers agreed output cuts last year. "It's a battle between how quick OPEC can cut without shale catching up," said Tony Nunan, oil risk manager at Mitsubishi Corp in Tokyo. Copper fell almost 1 percent to $5,982 a tonne on concern about fresh regulation that could affect China's property boom. Gold rose less than 0.1 percent to $1,238 an ounce, supported by uncertainty over the Fed rate outlook. Zinc and nickel also fell more than 1 percent.

The yen added 0.2 percent to 113.14 per dollar, following a 0.3 percent gain the previous day. The euro weakened 0.2 percent to $1.0538 after gaining 0.2 percent on Wednesday. It's been a very quiet morning in FX, with the FOMC minutes offering little fresh insight into Fed thinking. UST yields hold their ground however, but this may waiver as the count down to the March FOMC looms. This explains the range bound markets seen today, which looks set to continue over coming weeks. EUR/USD has been in focus, but looks reluctant to retest 1.0500 after yesterday's brief dip below here, but all now depends on whether Le Pen's performance in the polls changes to any notable degree. USD/JPY is also largely sidelined, but if stocks hold up, we expect little deviation from 112.50-114.50, and testing these limits looks unlikely any time soon. The crosses have also stabilised, most significantly EUR/JPY, having recovered 1 JPY from yesterday's lows circa 118.50. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate crude climbed 1.4 percent to $54.33 a barrel, rebounding from a 0.9 percent drop in the previous session. Movement across the spectrum of commodities remains confined to near term ranges, highlighted by the WTI test of USD55.00 earlier in the week - which was swiftly rejected. This may change later today ahead of the DoE report, with prices better supported despite the raft of inventory data to its detriment. Production cuts (and more to come?) are perhaps yet to feed through, and this looks to be driving the support seen on dips. Gold (and Silver) continue to dance to the tune of the USD, but we are ever watchful on equities which relentlessly push higher. Copper is back testing USD2.70 again, but all base metals have slipped a little on the back of the overnight CAPEX data. Less so Nickel as the Philippines environment minister underlined her backing from the president. Looking at today’s calendar, in the US we’ve got initial jobless claims and the Kansas City Fed’s manufacturing survey. Away from the data the Fedspeak continues with Lockhart (1.35pm GMT) and Kaplan (6.00pm GMT) both scheduled. The ECB’s Praet is also due to speak at various stages through the day.

Manf. Activity, Feb., est. 9, prior 9 1pm: Fed’s Kaplan Speaks in Fort Worth DB's Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap If you're someone who is disillusioned with global politics at the moment then yesterday you were perhaps offered an escape route assuming you have 39 years of travelling time left in you and you can source a spaceship that can move at the speed of light. If you tick both boxes then hop along to the Trappist-1 star system and its newly discovered seven earth sized planets, three of which scientists have deemed to be in the 'habitable zone'. I read about this last night while watching the 'Brit Awards' (UK version of the Grammys) where tributes were paid to the likes of David Bowie. I couldn't help be thankful that our planets have better names than the ones scientists discovered yesterday. I'm not sure "Is there life on 'E' 'F' or 'G'?" would quite have worked played with a haunting piano line. In markets yesterday planet F referred to the Fed and France as they were the two big macro stories. Starting with the former, the main passage to note from the FOMC minutes last night was that “many participants expressed the view that it might be appropriate to raise the federal funds rate again fairly soon if incoming information on the labor market and inflation was in line with or stronger than their current expectations or if the risks of overshooting the committee's maximum-employment and inflation objectives increased”. While there was that mention of “many participants” the “fairly soon” aspect of timing makes it hard to argue that March is any closer for the next move. That said it was highlighted that “a few participants noted that continuing to remove policy accommodation in a timely manner, potentially at an upcoming meeting, would allow the Committee greater flexibility in responding to subsequent changes in economic conditions” suggesting that there are a few members who would clearly be happy going next month. In terms of the mention of future balance sheet strategy the only real takeaway was the reference that “participants also generally agreed that the committee should begin discussions at upcoming meetings about the economic conditions that could warrant changes in the existing policy of reinvesting proceeds from maturing Treasury securities and principal payments from agency debt and mortgage-backed securities, as well as how those changes would be implemented and communicated”. So no real new insight on that front. With regards to Trump and the question marks there, the minutes showed that “most participants continued to see heightened uncertainty regarding the size, composition and timing of possible changes to fiscal and other government policies, and about their net effects on the economy and inflation over the medium term, and they thought some time would likely be required for the outlook to become clearer”. All in all then a fairly balanced set of minutes. Bloomberg’s calculator shows the probability of a Fed hike in March at 34% this morning which is actually down slightly from 36% the day before. May is at 62% from 59% - so not particularly big moves. Markets elsewhere didn’t really do much in the aftermath either. 10y Treasury yields closed out at 2.414% which was down 1.6bps on the day, having traded as high as 2.452% earlier on. The Greenback finished slightly lower (-0.15%) while risk assets were subdued. The S&P 500 (-0.11%) suffered only its third negative day in the last 3 weeks although the Dow (+0.16%) did finish higher and in doing so marked a three-decade record of nine consecutive new record closing highs. While we’re on the Fed it’s worth noting that Fed Governor Powell also spoke yesterday and said that a hike is warranted “fairly soon” should the economy continue on its current path. When asked if March is on the table, his reply was “Yes”. Meanwhile in France the latest update is the news that centrist candidate Francois Bayrou will now team up with independent candidate Macron in forming an alliance in the presidential election. The news should be a small positive for Macron. Bayrou had been running at around 5-6% in the recent polls and a portion of that should now transfer to Macron in the first round. An Elabe poll released on Tuesday found that Macron would get 17% of votes in the first round if Bayrou decided to run, and 18.5% without Bayrou running. So that suggests a 1.5% swing in Macron’s favour. The same poll showed Fillon as  benefiting from an extra 1% from Bayrou not running with the rest split around the far left and right. So as we noted a very marginal positive for Macron. The suggestion is that Bayrou has a strong influence on the centrist electorate so it could still be a bigger boost to Macron further down the line. European bond markets were notably stronger yesterday including a bounce back for 10y OATs (-7.4bps) to 1.006%. They outperformed Bunds (-2.1bps to 0.275%) while peripherals were a bit more mixed (yields flat to 6bps lower). It’s worth highlighting that 2y Bund yields finished down another 2bps yesterday at -0.902% and so extending their record low. They are in fact now down 24bps from the highs in January which has coincided with political uncertainly steadily climbing higher. European equities were alot more mixed yesterday. The Stoxx 600 finished -0.01%, the DAX +0.26% but the peripherals were much weaker with the IBEX and FTSE MIB -0.88% and -0.83% respectively. This morning bourses in Asia are generally trading in the red with commodity related names in particular underperforming. The Nikkei (-0.27%), Hang Seng (-0.48%), Shanghai Comp (-0.39%) and ASX (-0.26%) are all lower as we goto print. Yesterday’s declines across base metals don’t appear to be helping although Oil (+0.88%) has bounced back over $54/bbl following a -1.36% loss yesterday. Sovereign bond yields in Asia have also generally tracked lower. Staying in Asia it’s worth noting that the National People’s Congress (NPC) in China is now just around the corner with the event kicking off on March 5th. As a reminder this is where the government sets out its working plan for the year. Our China Chief Economist Zhiwei Zhang published a report yesterday previewing the event with what he expects to hear. He thinks that the government will set a growth target broadly unchanged from last year, keeping 6.5% as the floor. He is curious if the government will send signals on how they are going to handle the pressure from the US on trade issues. Further opening up some service sectors may be one option. Zhiwei highlights that investors should also pay close attention to press conferences during the NPC. Experience in the past suggests that messages from those press conferences may have a significant impact on the market. Also worth highlighting yesterday are our published takeaways from DB’s Bank Capital Forum 2017. Every year, the event brings together major investors, issuers and senior regulators to discuss the latest market and regulatory developments in banking. This year’s main topic was bank resolution and the keynote address was delivered by Dr. Elke König, Chair of the EU Single Resolution Board. It was followed  by a regulatory outlook panel, issuer panel and investor panel. The report should be in your inbox, contact [email protected] if not. Wrapping up, yesterday’s economic data in the US was reserved to the January existing home sales report which revealed that sales rose a better than expected +3.3% mom in January (vs. +1.1% expected). In Europe the notable data was the Germany IFO survey. The headline business climate reading jumped 1.1pts to 111.0 (vs. 109.6 expected) and so matching the December level again which is the highest since March 2014. Firms were most upbeat about the current assessment of the economy with that component rising 1.5pts to 118.4 while the expectations component rose 0.8pts to 104.0. Meanwhile in the UK  Q4 GDP was confirmed at a slightly above market +0.7% qoq (vs. +0.6% expected) but earlier downward revisions meant annual growth was revised down two-tenths to +2.0% yoy. Finally there were no surprises in the final January CPI print for the Euro area at -0.8% mom. That puts the headline annual rate at +1.8% while the core is at +0.9%. Looking at today’s calendar, this morning we’re kicking off in Germany again where we’ll get the final revisions to Q4 GDP (no change from the +0.4% qoq flash expected) along with the various growth components. Also due out will be various confidence indicators in France for February along with the UK’s CBI distributive trades survey for February. This afternoon in the US we’ve got initial jobless claims and the Kansas City Fed’s manufacturing survey. Away from the data the Fedspeak continues with Lockhart (1.35pm GMT) and Kaplan (6.00pm GMT) both scheduled. The ECB’s Praet is also due to speak at  various stages through the day.

Сделки Роснефти с Курдистаном и Ливией нужны ради нефтепереработки

Договор Роснефти с иракским Курдистаном о кредитах в обмен на сырую нефть и рамочное соглашение о поставках из Ливии нужны российскому нефтяному гиганту для заполнения системы НПЗ в Европе и Азии, сказали Рейтер источники среди трейдеров. Роснефть во вторник объявила о подписании договора с Курдистаном, став первой крупной нефтяной компанией, договорившейся о предварительном финансировании экспорта нефти из полуавтономного региона. Позже компания сообщила о сделке с Ливией.

"Роснефть" поручилась на $11 млрд за неназванных контрагентов

"Роснефть" в 2016 году выдала поручительства банкам и третьим лицам на $11 млрд, а также авансы венесуэльской PDVSA на $1,5 млрд. В основном это сделки в рамках трейдинговых контрактов, объясняет компания"Роснефть" в 2016 году предоставила неназванным банкам поручительства на €9 млрд сроком до 2022 года, говорится в годовом финансовом отчете компании. Это сделано "с целью обеспечения гибких условий поставок и расчетов по договорам трейдинга углеводородами". Что это за обязательства, по которым поручилась "Роснефть", и чьи они, в отчете не раскрывается. Представитель компании сказал РБК, что для увеличения эффективности деятельности и повышения маржинальности продаж трейдинговые контракты "Роснефти" могут предусматривать предоставление поручительств в пользу третьих лиц. Контрагентов и условия он не раскрыл.По состоянию на 31 декабря 2016 года вероятность наступления событий, приводящих к требованиям по этим договорам поручительства, оценивалась как крайне низкая, уточняет "Роснефть". Ранее компания в своих отчетах по МСФО (доступны с 2011 года) не сообщала о подобных поручительствах по трейдинговым операциям.В январе 2017 года "Роснефть" заключила пятилетний (то есть до конца 2021 года) контракт на поставку нефти в адрес британской QHG Trading - совместного предприятия швейцарского трейдера Glencore и катарского суверенного фонда QIA. В декабре консорциум Glencore - QIA стал акционером "Роснефти", купив 19,5% акций компании. Общий объем поставок по трейдинговому контракту на протяжении пяти лет составит от 22,5 млн до 55 млн т, сообщала "Роснефть". При текущей цене нефти Urals и по нижней границе (22,5 млн т) законтрактованный пятилетний объем оценивается примерно в €8 млрд. Но предоплаты по контракту нет, говорит представитель "Роснефти". Это значит, что банковское финансирование или гарантии, которые обычно сопровождают такие контракты, могло и не понадобиться. Предыдущие контракты с трейдерами Glencore, Vitol и Trafigura на поставку им нефти "Роснефть" заключала на условиях предоплаты.В отчете по итогам девяти месяцев 2016 года "Роснефть" ничего не сообщала о поручительствах по трейдинговым операциям, а в четвертом квартале сообщала только об одном новом поставочном контракте - с Glencore в рамках приватизации 19,5% "Роснефти", говорит аналитик ВТБ Екатерина Родина. Представитель Glencore сказал РБК, что по этим вопросам нужно обращаться к "Роснефти". Представитель "Роснефти" в ответ на вопрос о поручительствах и трейдинговых операциях сообщил, что долгосрочные контракты компании предусматривают поставки нефти, нефтепродуктов, СПГ в рамках трейдинговых операций в более чем 40 странах мира с десятками крупных мировых компаний. "Для реализации этой работы "Роснефть" использует различные инструменты, в том числе гарантирующие исполнение сторонами своих обязательств", - сказал он.В 2016 году "Роснефть" разместила ряд структурированных депозитов "в высоконадежных российских банках" с целью участия в трейдинговых сделках, а также для проведения текущих сделок по слиянию и поглощению и для финансирования поставок нефти на Кубу и в Венесуэлу, говорится в материалах компании, сопровождающих отчетность. Структурированные депозиты, как правило, сочетают в себе стандартный депозит и опционный (форвардный) контракт, позволяющий дополнительно заработать на росте цены какого-либо актива (например, нефти). В отчете также говорится, что в 2016 году "Роснефть" заключила договоры о размещении депозитов сроком до 2022 года в долларах и евро на сумму, эквивалентную 400 млрд руб. Не ясно, идет ли речь об одних и тех же депозитах и связаны ли они с поручительствами компании на €9 млрд.У "Роснефти" есть и собственные трейдинговые операции, например, через швейцарскую Rosneft Trading S.A. Трейдер занимается поставками нефти и нефтепродуктов, а также СПГ. Также "Роснефть" летом 2016 года договорилась о встречных поставках нефти и нефтепродуктов с венесуэльской PDVSA. "Роснефть" поставляет нефть в Венесуэлу, и при этом PDVSA также отдает свою нефть "Роснефти", выплачивая тем самым авансы (фактически кредиты), предоставленные российской компанией.Возможно, "Роснефть" поручилась по банковским кредитам для прямых покупателей ее нефти, речь может идти о контрагентах "Роснефти" в развивающихся странах, говорит старший аналитик Sberbank CIB Валерий Нестеров. Венесуэла сейчас испытывает проблемы с поставкой нефти по своим долгосрочным контрактам, за которые получила предоплату, напоминает Нестеров. Не исключено, что PDVSA для привлечения кредитов и расчетов с "Роснефтью" могло понадобиться какое-то поручительство, предполагает аналитик. Вторая проблемная страна, которой могли бы потребоваться поручительства по кредитам, - Куба, отмечает Нестеров. В сентябре 2016 года лидер Кубы Рауль Кастро в письме просил президента Владимира Путина рассмотреть возможность налаживания стабильных поставок нефти и нефтепродуктов на Кубу, источник в "Роснефти" говорил РБК, что поставки на Кубу логистически возможны, поскольку "Роснефть" уже поставляет нефть в Венесуэлу.103 млрд для третьих лиц"Роснефть" также выдала поручительство "в пользу третьих лиц" на сумму в эквиваленте до 103 млрд руб. по курсу ЦБ на 31 декабря 2016 года. В какой валюте предоставлено это поручительство, в отчете не говорится. Это было сделано "в рамках инвестиционной деятельности", отмечает "Роснефть". Сумма поручительства соответствует примерно €1,6 млрд ($1,7 млрд). На вопрос РБК, что это за третьи лица, представитель "Роснефти" пока не ответил. По состоянию на отчетную дату "Роснефть" оценивает вероятность возникновения финансовых обязательств по данному поручительству как крайне низкую.Glencore в декабре сообщала, что заплатит за акции "Роснефти" €300 млн евро собственных денег, ее партнер QIA внесет €2,5 млрд, а остальные €7,4 млрд - это кредит консорциуму от итальянского банка Intesa и неназванных российских банков. При этом Glencore предоставила Intesa, у которой в залоге находится приватизированный пакет акций "Роснефти", гарантию на сумму до €1,4 млрд на случай падения цены акций "Роснефти" и, соответственно, удешевления залога. Однако некие российские банки согласились полностью компенсировать Glencore эту сумму в случае необходимости. Что это за банки и кто обеспечил их собственные гарантии, не раскрывалось. При этом "Роснефть" не принимала участия в сделке в качестве гаранта обязательств ее участников перед кредиторами, сообщали в декабре "Ведомости" со ссылкой на источник в "Роснефти".Авансы Венесуэле"Роснефть" также выдала новые авансы венесуэльской нефтяной компании PDVSA, с которой давно сотрудничает. "Роснефть" в предыдущих отчетах сообщала, что в мае 2016 года выдала PDVSA аванс в сумме $500 млн в рамках контракта на поставку нефти. Теперь раскрыты авансы, выданные в ноябре (на $500 млн и $205 млн) и в декабре (на $280 млн). Таким образом, в прошлом году "Роснефть" предоставила PDVSA авансы на общую сумму почти $1,5 млрд, а еще один аванс на $500 млн, выданный в начале 2016 года, был конвертирован в дополнительные 23,3% в венесуэльском СП Petromonagas."Роснефть" - крупнейший иностранный инвестор в Венесуэле, отмечала сама компания. Но у компании возникли проблемы. В феврале 2017 года агентство Reuters сообщило о просрочках с поставками венесуэльской нефти в адрес "Роснефти", а парламент Венесуэлы тогда же обвинил компанию в нарушении Конституции, занижении стоимости доли и не одобрил сделку по увеличению доли в Petromonagas. "Роснефть" в ответ заявила, что не сомневается в законности сделки.В 2014 году PDVSA договорилась с "дочкой" "Роснефти" TNK Trading International S.A. о получении от нее предоплаты в размере $4 млрд за последующие поставки нефти и нефтепродуктов, говорилось в отчетности PDVSA за 2014 год (в отчете "Роснефти" за тот же год эти авансы видны не были). Поставки были рассчитаны на пять лет, процентная ставка - LIBOR плюс 6% в первый год, LIBOR плюс 4% в последующие годы. В 2015 году PDVSA не получала авансов от "Роснефти", следует из отчетности венесуэльской компании. Предоплаты на $2 млрд были отражены в отчетах "Роснефти" за 2016 год, из них $500 млн были переклассифицированы из внеоборотного актива в инвестицию в совместные предприятия (доля в Petromonagas).

Record Gasoline Glut Is Causing Problems On The East Coast

"Роснефть" избавляется от посредников

"Роснефть" избавляется от посредников, заключая прямые контракты на поставку нефти в Европу. Последнее соглашение было подписано с итальянской компанией Eni. Сделка обещает стать выгодной для обеих сторон. Итальянцы закрепляются на ведущих позициях среди участников энергетического рынка региона. А "Роснефть" будет продавать сырье с большей выгодой для себя, в обход посредников. Ранее госкомпания заключила прямые договоры с крупнейшими европейскими переработчиками — PKN Orlen, Shell, Total и Eni. Теперь нефтяная компания станет крупнейшим поставщиком российской нефти в Европу. Но совсем отказаться от отношений с трейдерами "Роснефть" не смогла. Glencore и Vitol, с которыми она заключила крупные контракты, помогут в финансировании приобретения ТНК-ВР.
