Ежедневный комментарий по рынку облигаций от 30 апреля 2015 г.
Вчера на российском рынке облигаций, несмотря на низкую торговую активность перед праздничными днями, преобладали покупатели. Кривая доходности ОФЗ опустилась вниз в рамках 20-30бп (в среднем), при этом, наибольший рост цен отмечен на коротком участке до 2-х лет. Схожее движение показали ставки по валютным и процентным свопам, однако преимущественно на отрезке от 1-го года. Мы считаем, что главным фактором позитивных настроений на рынке рублевого государственного долга выступил удачный аукцион Минфина, на котором наблюдался высокий спрос. В сегменте еврооблигаций первого эшелона сохранялся интерес к банковским и нефтегазовым выпускам, в то время как бумаги оставшихся отраслей изменились незначительно. Мы по-прежнему считаем, что на рынке преобладали денежные потоки резидентов, так как иностранные игроки ожидали макроэкономических новостей и комментарии ФРС по экономической ситуации в стране. В результате, первая оценка ВВП за 1кв оказалась хуже прогнозов: 0,2%. Инвесторы резко отреагировали на информацию: кривая казначейских ценных бумаг поднялась на 4-5бп, европейские суверенные инструменты фиксированной доходностью выросли на 7-15бп. Интересно отметить, что слабые статистические данные в США не повлияли на движение отечественных валютных облигаций, в отличие от внешних долговых активов стран EM. По всей видимостью, это связанно с тем, что доля российских держателей евробондов увеличилась, благодаря операциям валютное РЕПО. Таким образом, это ограничивает колебания цен от различных макроэкономических шоков (в первую очередь западных). Сегодня инвесторы будут ожидать решения Центрального банка по вопросу монетарной политики, поэтому активность торговых операций в локальных бумагах суверенного и корпоративного долга будет преобладать во второй половине дня. В утренние часы кривая ОФЗ изменилась незначительно, однако спрос на банковские еврооблигации, номинированных в рублях и долларах, сохраняется.
Ежедневный обзор рынка акций от 30 апреля 2015 г
Сегодня ключевой темой торгов будут ожидания итогов заседания ЦБ РФ, на котором ожидается решение по снижению процентной ставки. Вопрос в объеме снижения. Утром валютный рынок реагирует укреплением доллара против евро на вчерашние заявления представителей ФРС США о возможности роста ставок в июне 2015г.

OPEC made its decision, we wait for the marker reaction. Comments: Raiffeisen Bank, LUKOIL, NLMK, Metalloinvest, Nordgold.
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News · The 166th OPEC meeting held in Vienna resulted in keeping the quotas for oil production at the same level. · Japan’s manufacturing output advanced 0.2% in October. Debt Market · UST-10 was not traded yesterday, but the March 2015 Futures was traded. Its target range of volatility was in line with our forecast. During today’s trading session it will range from 129.29 (max) to 127.06 (min). We assume that the derivative security will be purchased. · Yesterday the trades showed no pronounced dynamics in the local debt market and the leading indices underwent marginal changes. Generally the government bonds lowered by 0.05%. The activity rose also in the primary market mainly due to the issuers of the banking sector. Comments · Yesterday LUKOIL posted its financial results prepsred in compliance with US GAAP. Net profit referred to OAO LUKOIL for 9M 2014 declined by 26% from earlier $7.77 to $5.74 billion. The ground is the declined prices for hydrocarbon, the losses incurred from the difference of the exchange rates. In the light of the OPEC meeting held yesterday, which led to no changes in oil production, we prefer the securities of the metallurgists. · Yesterday Raiffeisen Bank posted its financial results prepared in compliance with IFRS for 9M 2014. In 9M 2014, Raiffeisen Bank generated 14 billion rubles, down 13% y-o-y. The reduced profit resulted from the expenditures for reserves increased almost fourfold in the retails segment amid the pat due debt and the increased credit portfolio for natural persons and due to the high comparative base. We suppose that Raiffeisen Bank, BO-04 looks oversold and offers an interesting premium to OFZ.

NORDLI-18, the only issue of Eurobonds is traded with premium to Z-spread of 304 b. p. against CHMFRU-18, the issue of Severstal. We suppose that the difference in Z-spread between the issues will narrow from 304 to 250 b. p. The fair yield may make up 8.8%. We recommend buying NORDLI-18. · MMK posted its results for 3Q and 9M 2014 on Friday. The company’s net profit amounted to $106 million against the losses of $274 million incurred last year.

Among the metallurgical issuers, Metalloinvest, 06 looks more interesting.
