"The government shutdown is entering its twenty first day without a resolution in sight. The question becomes at. What point does this gridlock? Imperil? The US is triple a rating joining us now James McCormack global head of sovereign debt at Fitch Ratings training us from London James. Thank you so much for being with us. Fitch Ratings has sounded a bit of an alarm saying that if this government shutdown does drag on much longer it will consider a downgraded to the top rating that the US currently enjoys please explain. Yeah. That's right. I guess there's a couple of things that really come into focus really the longer. This goes on one is conflicted. With a note we put out last week. We said, you know, this foreshadows or more pronounced destabilization of policy-making that would include the standoff over the debt limit, which is really much more important than than the shutdown. I think we'd have to be quite concerned about that. And and the second sort of parallel track. Whereas we're thinking about is that the policy-making framework matters so much in the US because there are some pretty big fiscal policy. Challenges ahead in addition to the debt limit so the fiscal deterioration that's underway with deficits in order five and a half to six percent and the debt level where it is without at around one hundred percent the way we measure it without a resolution in sight kind of sets the fiscal trajectory of the US on a slightly different path than what we would see in other AAA. So we do have to think about it knows context. Well. Chairman of Powell drum Palo the Federal Reserve said at the economic club meeting that he's concerned about the level of the US debt. And that it is something that they have really no power over as a result. What do you think will will it take to get lawmakers to focus on it? Well, that's a very good question. Because lawmakers have not been focused on it for some time. This is a debt burden that has been creeping higher. Congress has not yet taken on the issues that need to be resolved. And the primary issue why the deficit continues to grow in addition to the tax cut tax cuts. We've just seen is really on the mandatory spending side, and that is going to be a very difficult issue for for politicians to to embrace. But at some point. Down the line that doesn't need to be addressed. If you look at Congressional Budget Office projections over the next ten years. It's very clear that there are two items two items on the spending side where things need to be need to be addressed is on the mandatory spending. And and the other is really interested. So both of those things are rising very quickly to the interest burden. Can't do much about that unless the debt comes down but mandatory spending something can be done about that. But it's very very difficult politically to get agreement on that. So James is there sort of a deadline for which the US has to come for come to a resolution for you to stop taking a look at the AAA rating. In other words, how long does this have to go on before you really do consider stripping the US of the top rating? Yeah. It's not so much about the shutdown. It's really more of a debt ceiling, and as you may you may know the debt ceiling comes back into the beginning of March. And then the treasury begins to use what he calls extraordinary measures at that point. So there's probably a couple of months before that really begins to buy when we last put took any rating action on the US was to put it on rating watch negative and that was back in twenty thirteen when when the period during which extraordinary measures operate with coming to an end. And there was no resolution in sight, we within forty eight hours of the so-called ex- date. And I think we would need to be in a position similar to that before we thought about a rating action. So that in turn down the road one thing that I don't understand though, if these situations keep arising, and it does not appear that gridlock is going to ease anytime soon in Washington, why not downgrade the US now. Yeah. I mean, we kind of down this road before. But not quite as pronounced. And that's why we're that's why we're talking about it now because we want to make sure that you know market participants. In other observers understand our position if were to take the rating action on the US, we want that to be as well flagged as possible. And so we are seeking about it now because it's an issue that we think the markets should be made aware of. But we're not in a position to suggest that this is definitively going to happen. So there's still plenty of time for congress and the White House to act to resolve both feed the shutdown and then subsequently to to address the debt limit manufactured happens as it has in the past. Then the AAA rating is is is probably sound James. If you believe that a recession is coming in two thousand nineteen would that change any of your ratings? I don't think so I mean the rating is supposed to be resilient. True and economic cycle. We don't see a recession in fact in in twenty nineteen. We don't see a recession in in in twenty twenty either we certainly see slowing growth, particularly as the fiscal stimulus begins to fade in twenty nineteen. We will have weaker growth towards the end of the year. Two twenty twenty we see growth only in the in a ram two percent in this year. We see it it sort of two point six percents. So definitely a slowing of growth, but not a recession. And I don't think we would be wanting to suggest that the US rating was under under any kind of threat from out from a normal economic cycle, including one that was inclusive every recession we're gonna leave it there. But thanks very much for being with us. James McCormack is global head of global sovereigns and supernational at Fitch Ratings. Speaking about the US sovereign debt rating at a time when there's a bit of buying the treasury market right now, the thirty year trades at three point zero two percent up twenty seven thirty seconds the.

Here is they follow the fed that there would be a boost to the net interest margins here, we did talk to Fitch Ratings senior analysts though earlier this morning saying though, the competitive environment here in Hong Kong will not necessarily translate higher to higher net interest margins because of the higher high board that we have seen, but that could be if we're in a long tightening cycle that could be a long term growth for the bag. But right now, still not according to Fitch Ratings a going to be a big boost. I'm just looking at these numbers we can kind of give it a percentage rise that third quarter just a pretext prophet as I said beating the estimates by sixteen percent. So it's a fairly healthy arise over the estimates. The adjusted revenue increase that they mentioned just a few minutes ago, a thirteen point eight four billion that is a nine percent rise as well. So a fairly good numbers. But again, John Flint the CEO who took over earlier this year. His emphasis really is going to be on Asia. They get about seventy seven percent in the first half of justed pretax profit from Asia. He wants to continue that trend. He wants to go into China. He said he wants to raise his hand. It'd be one of the first banks to be a London based banks to list in the new Shanghai. London stock connect that could happen as early up and running as early as December. We'll we'll have to wait and see until this afternoon. Three thirty time that we're going to get the conference call from these executives at HSBC. Yes. Even I was just about to ask John, of course, about eight months into the job. So not that new. But then again, he's had time now to really rush forward on some of his strategy. What are you going to be looking out for on the conference call, and what do you think investors are going to be watching for? Yeah. They're going to want an explanation on the negative jaws. Definitely and win that will likely turned around because they have been kind of telegraphing that they're going to get this turned around. So what knocked it back down. But also again, the Asian expansion. There is such a high reliance on Hong Kong. I mean, forty nine percent of their pre-tax profits comes from this market alone. And this is a market where the stock market is down seventeen percent. They are feeling the effects of the trade war between China and the United States where else can you find growth and keep in mind eighteen percent of their pretext profit comes from the UK market. You have that thing called Brexit as well. I think I've heard of that. Yes. It's continue the Bank earnings theme. Devise largest lender. Emirates NBD posted a sixteen percent increase for the third quarter profit this week top analysts estimates use of in tracing got more on that. And the other regional corporate news with our Middle East. Equities markets reporter, Philly Pacheco. The numbers are just out. And we see that it was better than analysts were expecting. This is stoking two boys. One of the stuck is doing the best in this market. So far this year. There's a story behind the name that we are watching closely and anyone looking at banks in the region right now having might which is the fact that they approved the increase in foreign ownership. Limit earlier this year it will go from five percent up to twenty percent. But the thing is nobody knows exactly when this is going to be implemented. We knew that the numbers are good. The people are bullish on the day. And we probably should a reaction in the market during trading session today. But if we have any kind of DT or clarity about win. This lemon dish will happen. We should even higher jump for joining a higher jump Felipe eight let's turn over to Saudi Arabia. Because of course, we've had so much headline risk there over the past couple of weeks. HSBC CEO John Flint said yesterday that he thought. The drama over the shock of fare wasn't going to actually impact investor appetite there. What are you hearing from people on the ground? Tracy. That's a very good point. Because right now, we it seems like people are getting back to what they were looking before the whole has showed. She's saga started last week. We do know that foreign outflows were huge last week by foreigners and by retail institutional investors continue to buy and basically to support the market in Riyadh. But right now, we still hear a lot of people bullish banks numbers are coming out and most analysts are still quite bullish. Especially on those names that will be added to the end footsie list next year, and we hear a lot of pessimism towards consumer names and anything related to retail consumption, because that's also as we know a very big topic in Saudi right now, how many people were living the country because of Saudi ization, and how is that impacting the the number in the performance off those consumption names? So it seems like things are coming back to normal volatility. Look a lot has a faded a lot. It was extremely high two weeks ago. And now it's back to levels that we saw earlier this month in a close to September levels. So it seems like things are coming now a little bit. We're almost at the halfway point. Now in terms of earnings fifty eight companies on one hundred and seventy one on the Saudis, Adele have reported so far what are some of the other names that you're looking at for the next forty eight hours. Interesting named that that started the earnings story in Saudi is Zane say, for example, it's the local subsidiary of saying, you know, it's from Kuwait and the performing quite well yesterday in Riyadh up almost seven percent. We maybe we should see a rally continuing today because it's the first time it's the first quarter that they present a positive result in in four. So the I think people were lacking. And they're looking for the good stories in the Saudi market right now. Especially after the punish the market wasn't the best two.

"Lines hitting the Bloomberg the red headline, then a beat on the pre adjusted tax six point one nine billion dollars, the company compiled estimate was for five point seven three billion dollars important to point out here. Adjusted jaws for nine months eighteen was negative one point six percent. Remember that analysts had always set at a third consecutive disappointment on operating jaws would be received very negatively, the, of course, is their way of measuring income growth versus cost growth. Also, some other important numbers there, Tracy from the Bank. Yeah. Lots of numbers to dig through. We're still getting some of those headlines coming through on the Bloomberg. But let's go over to our north Asia. Correspondent Stephen Engle. He's going to digest those for us. Justed pretense prophet is better than expected from the company compiled estimate of five point seven three billion coming in at six point one nine billion. But as use of just said that negative jaws for third consecutive quarter is something the market has been looking for in fact, HSBC the Bank itself has been kind of guiding the jaws of in positive territory for the second half, but they have fallen into negative territory for three consecutive quarter. Of course, Jon is the ratio of income growth versus cost growth. So they have not necessarily. I would assume from this giving their cost structure in line or they have not boosted their income growth necessarily enough. Goldman Sachs ahead of these numbers were saying the all the eyes will be on third quarter revenue momentum. And I'm just looking to see if we can get some third quarter revenue numbers. Yes. Third quarter adjusted revenue thirteen point eight billion dollars. The estimate was thirteen point six eight. So it's a slight beat on the revenue front. But again they've continued in negative jaws for third consecutive quarter. And as you rightfully said Yousef, a third consecutive negative jobs would be received a very negatively we're in the lunch break at Hongkong. The HSBC shares had been up slightly ahead of the results. Yeah. It's interesting. Stephen I'm looking here at some of the commentary. Goldman Sachs saying that the key focus is going to be on revenue. It's going to be on cost progression. You've got Morgan Stanley. They're looking again. I mean, there are overweight, and this particular company, and they're agreeing that good operating leverage will be key to HSBC's positive jaws guidance. Some other lines coming through here just to keep everybody in the loop. You've got the adjusted expected credit losses for the third quarter at five hundred seven million dollars. We know have commentary as well. From Mr. Flint from HSBC says it's encouraging the numbers are encouraging and they demonstrate revenue potential. It also comes down Stephen to the live or spread. That's been absolutely key. Especially in domestic markets in the UK and Hong Kong. Yeah. That's right. I mean, you would think given the rising rate environment. Here is they follow the fed that there would be a boost to the net interest margins here, don't go. We did talk to Fitch Ratings senior analysts though earlier this morning saying. Oh, the competitive environment here in Hong Kong will not necessarily translate higher to higher net interest margins because of the higher high board that we've seen, but that could be if we were in the long tightening cycle that could be a long term growth for the bag right now still not according to Fitch Ratings a going to be a big boost. I'm just looking at more of these numbers. We can kind of give it in a percentage rise that third quarter just a pretext prophet as I said beating the estimates by sixteen percents. So it's a fairly healthy arise over the estimates. The adjusted revenue increase to they mentioned just a few minutes ago, a thirteen point eight four billion that is a nine percent rise as well.

"Let's turn to the latest business news. Now as the clock ticks through twelve or six in London. Italy's populist leaders have brushed off their finance ministers, attempts to reassure investors. You imports from Bloomberg joins us on the line good afternoon to you. You and what's the latest from Italy. Told me it's lots of investor focus on Italy's budget for next year. We expect in the next few weeks to get some more details from the populist governments and next year's budget light. See the deficit almost doubled a touch, the European Union's three percents deficit singing that's going to deputy prime. The Matteo Salvini a lot of focus on from investors on this. The governor, of course, has some very expensive election promises, but the the government, they're saying that they will try to respect all the European hurdles, but the wellbeing of Italian citizens comes first Fitch Ratings on fighting on the main rating agencies cited budgetary concerns as it changes outlook on Italy to negative from stable, but they didn't actually move down the rating on the debt which to some people was a bit of a relief Italian currently, two notches above junk status. Italian bonds today actually up slightly with the yielding yield of three point one, nine percent. Now the yield. On Italian bonds has risen since the government took over in June's, suggesting that it will cost Italy more to borrow as time goes on. Now, another country that you and I have discussed frequently on this program in is Turkey, obviously, very sort of incendiary quite turbulent recently and some inflation data today. I don't know what are we going to what should be the takeaways from this? Yeah, fascinating. The economic story in Turkey, Tom, soggy, central banks digging today. The high interest rates are in the offing after inflation rose more than forecast in August and also producer prices surging. Now, the central Bank in Turkey says that the monetary stance will be adjusted at the September Monchy policy meeting in view of the latest developments a not very coded warning that we will probably see high interest rates in Turkey. Now, the data, the came out this morning pretty startling seventeen point. Nine percents is the current annual rates of price rises for consumers in Turkey because we've grown. In Houston. The west are having very little inflation prices not rising a tool that is not the pitcher in Turkey. The slumping lira means that imported goods become much much more expensive for Turkish. Consumers Turkish producer prices while they're rising at thirty two percent a year. So that suggesting that this some gap between producers a paying in what they're passing onto consumers, but that won't last forever. So eventually those high producer prices. We'll also get passed on to consumers. Now that's a rate rise from the circuit Turkey. Central Bank when we get it puts them at odds with president urged one, he said he doesn't want to see rates rising. He wants to see focus on economic growth in Turkey, and he doesn't really believe in rising interest rates as a way of stemming inflation. But certainly inflation is something of a problem in Turkey at the moment. And did it is always good to hear from you that was offering to you?
