    Commodities face a Trump dump

    History tells investors not to short China — #SaxoStrats

    History tells investors not to short China — #SaxoStrats
    The media in the developed world are obsessed with China's growth and often highlight it as unnatural and unsustainable. But that thinking is wrong because it is not based on historical facts about urbanisation in the US and Europe. By establishing the right baseline we show that China's construction spending is no mystery, but a natural development of rapid urbanisation.

    Is infrastructure spending an enabler or boondoggle?

    Is infrastructure spending an enabler or boondoggle?
    Infrastructure spending is needed across the developed world, and financial markets appear to have sat up and taken note as Donald Trump’s message grew louder. The way forward cannot be based on wasteful state spending, so private debt or equity financing should play a larger role.

    And the winner is: Copper and mining — #SaxoStrats
    President elect Donald Trump's pledge to spend more than $500 billion on rebuilding America's roads, bridges and airports helped send construction and steel stocks sharply higher following his surprise election win. Within the commodity space it sent copper sharply higher with the BBG Industrial Metal index on track for its best week in five years.

    Qantas pays first dividend since 2009 after record profit

    Bloomberg
    Qantas Airways Ltd. announced its first dividend since 2009 and handed bonuses to 25,000 workers as Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce’s turnaround program delivered a record annual profit. The nation’s biggest carrier will pay a final dividend of 7 Australian cents a share and buy back as much as A$366 m ($279 m) of stock, according to a filing on Wednesday. Earnings before tax and one-time items surged 57% to A$1.53 bn in the 12 months ended June 30.
    Joyce, who has cut thousands of jobs, deferred aircraft orders and dropped unprofitable routes as part of a A$2 bn transformation program, said the three-year plan is now on course to exceed its target. The regular dividend has returned earlier than some analysts had expected.
